Color Easter Eggs with Kool-Aid!

Beautiful, beautiful beautiful!  I love how saturated the color is on these Kool-Aid dyed eggs!

Would I do it again? Absolutly!

Will it work for you? That is what this post is all about! Taking a very honest look at dyeing eggs using Kool-aid.

I've seen a couple tutorials lately for dying yarn using Kool-Aid.  Two different methods but apparently they work! OMG the yarns are gorgeous. Go visit and see how it is done!  Brilliant!  Ideas and colors.!

Sweet and Easy (Not So) Sweet Treats!

I am taking a quick break from "recycle month" because I just got word from Diane that my brand new e-book (Not So) Sweets is now available in her CraftyPod shop

Some of my all time favorite desserts are included - Cream Puffs, Mousse, Panna Cotta and Linzer Cookies.  

Valentine Treat! Almond Chocolate Cake/Torte

The recipe for this yummy, dense, jam covered almond and chocolate torte found it's way into my recipe box many, many years ago.  The cake is very simple to make and frosting it couldn't be easier - simply cover it with jam after baking?

When I make this torte on Valentines Day, I bake it in two little 8" heart pans - one to eat and one to give!.  But a 9" or 10" spring form pan is recommended.  The recipe makes 1 - 9" or 10" cake or 2 - 8" heart cakes.

Chocolate Almond Torte

3/4 cup unsalted butter
7/8 cup + 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
5 eggs, separated

Brigid's Crosses

My very first Brigid's Cross or St. Brigid's Cross! 

Some people worship the goddess, and some recognize and worship the saint.   Most of the links at the end of the post today are intended to share the stories of both goddess and saint. I hope you will take time to read them and learn more of the rich history and lore surrounding Brigid and perhaps find your own reasons to honor her by making a Brigid's Cross.

I am celebrating Brigid as the goddess of creative inspiration and expression by Making a Brigid or St. Brigid Cross!

Imbloc! Brigid's Day! Candlemas! Oh yes and Groundhog Day!

For all these many years I thought February 2nd was Groundhog Day!!!

It is so much more than that!
