I rave about ATK all the time. But there are times when I just can't do the "fully loaded" dinners. For that I have my America's Test The Best Light Recipe to turn to. I've only tried a few things before, like my creamy pesto. So tonight I tried their Macaroni and Cheese with Ham & Peas. Very tasty! It said to use the 50% Cabot Cheddar but I chose to use the 2% Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp. I don't know what the difference is between the two. Maybe my use of skim milk instead of 2% made up some of the difference. And rarely do we eat regular pasta anymore, so I used the Barilla Plus elbow noodles.
So what began as an experiment has turned into craziness. David was trying out FaceTime on our new iPhones and did a portrait for a customer of his in Miami. Then he tweeted about it. He got a pretty good response. Next another client tells some of his friends. Next thing we know, he's on the internet geek blog gizmodo.com and the website wired.com. He's slightly overwhelmed! (to put that gently) Gonna have to take on the role of administrative assistant.
Here's the blanket I'm currently working on. It's made by doubling up colors and crocheting them together. The whole thing is made up of about 17 different color combinations. Stay tuned for the finished product.
The design is a ripple pattern, one of my favorites.
Most of the colors don't really match but it all seems to work.
And here's a picture of baby blanket that I made for a friend.
Their colors were pink and green...I can't really handle baby pink.
Since we live in an apartment, we cannot have a grill. So we had to do hamburgers inside but they turned out great! The idea came from Cook's Country, they're pimento & cheese stuffed burgers. Yum! I lightened it up in several ingredients. Then I made cobbler/pie without the crust. Essentially...blackberry sauce to put over ice cream (well...frozen yogurt).
Oh man these were soooo good!
Tasty replacement for cobbler and ice cream. I added splash or two chocolate syrup.
I'm a happily married archivist/mom/wife. I love stitching and cooking delicious meals! I hate to exercise but I devote much time and research into being healthy. My newest obsession is our first home!
