Mercury Free Sushi

My friend Monique's baby shower was this weekend. She's a fan of sushi but hasn't had any in months because she's worried about heavy metals in the fish. So I decided for the potluck dish I'd bring mercury free sushi made from candy. Bon appetit!

Didn't get there in time for a picture of all of them.

The first kind is your classic sushi roll. Made with fruit rolls instead of seaweed, rice crispy treets instead of rice and gummy worms instead of tuna. The second is sushi roll with fish eggs. Once again fruit rolls filling in for seawead, twistlers cut up to look like fish eggs and marshmallows instead of rice. The third is nigiri, with swedish fish candy playing the role of real fish. I did make the rice crispies from scratch just because it's easier that way.

The candy sushi was a big hit and I even put a little card that said "Mercury Free Sushi"

Because Ed Hardy is cluttered and expensive

My best friend Alex's 21 birthday was last month and I made her this purse. I painted the heart, and my other close friend Chloe sharpied "Alex" on there in a cute tattoo-esque font. Bon appetit!

Modeled by me, and I am not pregnant... it's just a weird angle.

If you're wondering why the flurry of posts, I wanted to update before I leave on my impromptu Vegas holiday with my sisters. VEGAS BABY!

The Yummiest Thing I've Ever Made

Hey Crafters! I've been on a home cooking kick lately, mostly out of necessity. Home cooked food like all home made things is so much better, and cheaper. I'm not going to make a habit out of sharing pictures of every dinner I make, but I had to share this one.

I love Thai Food. Some would argue too much. But going out for Thai food isn't cheap and I made a huge culinary leap and started cooking some at home. I'm more of mashed potatoes and wholesome savory cooking type girl, so making something like Red Curried Chicken is out of character. I have to say, it is the best thing I've ever made. Bon appetit!


Made with a few teaspoons of red curry paste, with coconut milk, chicken, fresh pineapple, zucchini, brocoli and a mix of peppers.

Dungeons and Dragons!

If you read my blog, you may already know that I am a nerd. I submit to you more proof of my nerdiness: fresh baked geekiness. Bon appetit!

I made this with felt and a fabric marker. If you want to make one yourself, reference your d20. It is made of twenty equilateral triangles. I arranged the numbers in the exact positions as my reference dice, which are arranged to avoid cheating with weighted dice.
