This recipe looked like a good way to use up some coconut palm sugar without being overwhelmed by its flavor. My only substitution was using all whole-wheat flour instead of some white. There was enough batter for 24 muffins, which were moist and unremarkable.
Another card with a tag in the middle. It's fairly simple, but any embellishments that came to mind would have detracted from the fancy foil paper.
This is my kind of sketch challenge--pretty much a blank slate! I scientifically decided to make three of the card seen below, based on the fact that there was enough crust-colored paper at hand for six slices of pizza. Ciao a tutti!
Spellbinders had a moving sale, so there are a few new dies in the craft room. This butterfly was actually not what I ordered, but I am 100% fine with the substitution!
The colors are actually pretty similar to those for the MFT Color Challenge, so I will enter that one for the first time ever. Now to find another 1,000 active waking hours for die cutting!
My oldest niece celebrated her annual Bob Day by creating 25 greeting cards today. Things were busy at the end of the day, and I did not take a picture of the entire collection, but pictured below is one inspired by the new MFT Card Challenge. Emily is welcome to play with my paper any time!
A free interpretation of this week's sketch challenge. . .some of us don't own hillside dies! The hats and cake were left over from a scrapbook page, so it was fun to find them a home.
Even in July, I love soup for lunch. This recipe provided a good template, although I substituted and added and subtracted as I saw fit, most notably trading edamame for the mushrooms and adding carrots to the broth. The final product was visually appealing and tasted good, and there are many more won tons in the freezer for future lunches! There are also more raw ingredients in the refrigerator, as Prime Now delivered the world's largest head of cabbage and a whole hand of ginger. Mu shu, anyone?
King Arthur Flour recipes are generally reliable, and the Pumpkin Cake Doughnuts were no exception. I used whole-wheat flour instead of all-purpose, so that I could call them a health food. Shaking the tender baked goods in a bag of sugar seemed like a bad idea, so I poured the cinnamon sugar into a bowl and dipped them instead. This was a good snack. Next step: buy more doughnut pans!
