I’ve been on a crafting and decorating kick over the last few weeks, sparked by lots of vacation time! First up was some much-needed wall art in my living room. I love pixel art (like this or this) and wanted a low-cost piece in my living room. I wanted it to be easily editable, so the pixels had to be relatively temporary and easy to remove. I went to Home Depot and grabbed paint chips in about a dozen different colors, intentionally choosing only a few chips of accent colors and lots of chips of the main blues and greens. Some of the differences between the colors were minimal, which is what I was aiming for, and they look pretty cool in person. I used Blu-Tack to adhere them to the wall and applied five at a time with a level to make sure it was all lined up! (read more…)
Time for something a little savory! I wanted to make a small appetizer that was quick and used a few fresh, summery ingredients. I read online that tomato and peach flavors go really well together so I decided to give it a go!
Ingredients (makes 6-8)
1 Mozzarella ball
Balsamic vinegar (read more…)
Recipe: Judicialpeach's Sea Salt Caramels
Total time: 30 minutes
Unusual ingredients: Light Corn Syrup
I’ve always liked to bake but as a college student, I’ve never had enough time or a kitchen to do it in. I was lucky enough to get to spend some time with Lara recently, and she allowed me free reign in her kitchen. Everything I’ve ever wanted to try passed through my mind, but these caramels seemed accessible enough to try.
