Still Cooking

This book, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes has been on my Amazon wish list for a while. I found a recipe from the book yesterday and made a couple of loaves. I halved the recipe just in case it didn't work out, but it was easy and delicious. Alexandra's Kitchen has tons of new recipes I want to try.

Quokka Quilts has cooked up an interesting challenge. I'm sure a few of you have seen the Blogger's Fabric Bundles at the Fat Quarter Shop. It's always fun to see how quilters put together fabric combinations. Now you can try your hand at it. Just pick 12 prints and three solids from all the fun fabrics at the Fat Quarter Shop. It's harder than it looks!

After your virtual shopping trip, make a mosaic of your choices and link it up for a chance to win half yard cuts of all 15 of your favorites. How cool would that be? Free fabric is my favorite! I gave the challenge a try, but I could have spent many valuable sewing hours choosing fabric combos. My quick pick is above.

Dotty, my quilting buddy I got hooked on selvages sent me another one of her creations. Christmas in New York, what could be better? Actually, I traveled to New York one December with my girlfriend and we froze our butts off. It was still fun, but Florida girls should visit the Big Apple in the spring.

I'm on my third half batch of Buffalo Chex Mix. This stuff is addictive. Do you remember calling it "Nuts and Bolts" back in the day? I make it in the microwave now, so I can only do half batches, but it takes so much less time. I was going to try some of the other salty flavors, but we're all hooked on the Buffalo version. They even have sweet versions, but I'm all about the salt.


  1. the bread looks great...I like the idea that it is easy too!
    And yes, I am still looking at the "nuts and bolts" with my mouth watering!!
    Happy New Year

  2. Is QUokka a Japanese brand tht used to be called KOKKA?
