Simple, beautiful & ad-free. Read the manifesto:
After an impromptu and lengthy hiatus I will be returning regularly to Too Old for Ramen. Sorry to have been gone so long, but it was worth it.
There is nothing better than iced tea made from Earl Grey tea. It is dark and fragrant and it doesn’t even need any sugar. It’s almost October here in Southeastern Louisiana and it is still hot enough to really appreciate sipping on a glass or two.
I have a friend that has a child with a peanut allergy. I made this for her. I created these to be similar to the famous peanut butter cookies that have a similar super-simplistic recipe. These are easy to make gluten free too if you use coconut flour. The get softe the day after, but they also get even better.
Awwww YEAH, Son. That is some Frito Pie! This is a piece I made for Frippery and Fop's miniatures. It is highly detailed and full of yum (imaginary, because it is made from clay instead of fritos). So tiny and cute, I am going to work this idea into some jewelry somehow soon, I just need to sell some of the stuff I have now so I can buy some new supplies. The beans and onions were the most fun to make. I hope you like it. You can see more of it here. Would you wear a frito pie pendant necklace?
I am so excited about these. Raw steak earrings! they look awesome in real life and are just so much fun! Definitely gonna make some into plugs for myself. You can view them here
One of the items I listed on etsy today. I have more to list but I am taking a break. The crisply buffalo chicken strips basket can be purchased here. I love this piece so much, it took forever to get it “right” and it even looks real magnified. I am seriously craving some of these right now with my sugar cane syrup and sriracha sauce. ! I must make that happen this weekend.
Cilantro & Lime Meatballs with Pestochurri Pearl Couscous
Super busy today, but wanted to post this recipe for you. I created this in order to clean out some ingredients I needed to use. It’s fabulous. pestochurri is just like it sounds, it is pesto with elements of chimichurri sauce tossed in for good measure. Divine!
The meatballs have no filler in them. No bread or egg, just MEAT. They come out perfectly. You don’t even really need the cheese, if you wanted to make this meal dairy free. Just add more onion if you do that. These meatballs are good on their own, in mexican lasagna, on sandwiches, or crumbled on top of your chilakristis (chilaquiles).
Ah, gotta go. The laundry beckons and I want to make a tutorial on making miniature food trays and I have some new stuff to photograph that I made.
