Photos of projects

Standard

I promised some photo updates of the projects I’ve been up to, so here they are:

Jello Shots in Clementine Peels

Made with peach flavored jello and 1/2 cup of silver rum.

  • Jello mix made according to package instructions (replace 1/2 cup of cold water with 1/2 cup of rum or vodka)
  • 6 clementines, halved and insides removed
  • Place clementine halves in a muffin tray cups, then fill with jello mixture
  • Refrigerate until solid, then slice in half

 

Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeno Poppers

  • Followed recipe from culinaryconfessional.
  • Substituted cream cheese for herb goat cheese and didn’t use bacon.

Pizza

The “House Party” Pizza

  • Easy to make– get Publix (or any grocery store that does it) pre-made pizza dough from the deli/bakery section, your choice of meat/veggie toppings, your choice of meltable cheese, and pasta/tomato sauce.
  • Refrigerate dough, follow instructions on preparation.
  • Prepare toppings- I chopped up onions, bell peppers, spinach, tomatoes, and pre-cooked Canadian bacon.
  • Stretch the dough and form to a well greased pan. Preset oven to temp specified on dough instructions.
  • Put a LIGHT layer of sauce on the dough, then put in the oven to pre-bake for 10 minutes.
  • Get pre-baked crust out of the oven, spread toppings. Cover with a light layer of shredded cheese, then bake until cheese is melted and crust turns golden brown.
  • Let sit for 5 minutes before cutting.

Towel Robe

Towel Robe

  • Reverse-engineered the robe my mom made me a few years ago (not nearly as well).
  • Used 4 oversized towels (from Walmart).
  • Towel 1: back. Cut a slant at the top for shoulders and half-circles on each side for half the arm circles.
  • Towel 2: Cut in half (long way). Cut one arm hole half-circle in each half, as well as one shoulder slant. Match with the back, each half should be the front sides.
  • Sew the front pieces (towel 2) on to the back piece (towel 1) leaving the arm holes open.
  • Towel 3: Cut one 3 in strip on the long side. This will be the belt once folded in half and sewed. Cut the remaining towel bit in half (long way). These are the arms.
  • Cut arms to length desired, then sew the sides of each arm piece together to create the sleeve. How sew the cuff of the arm, then attach to the armholes of the robe.
  • Towel 4: Pockets and collar. *This is the part I had trouble with*. Matching the right length between chest level on the front of the robe on one side, around the back of the neck and to the same point on the other side, cut from the 4th towel the collar. it should be curved on one side and flat on another, thicker around the back of the neck and thinner at the chest. Attach this carefully to the correct places on the robe.
  • *Optional*: Cut 2 pockets (about 3in square). Attach to robe.
