    Shrink Plastic

    I think I will do some next without text on. I love animals pendants but would like to do something different. Any ideas? Id love to do some of young children (cutesy) for example but dont know any to draw from so i asked! I am starting to put some aside for a romanian dogs fundraiser, 7 pendants and 2 tshirts so far. Meaningful project + wearable arts/crafts. Hope you like them.

    Healthy Icecream

    Hi, I found this 'There is no cholesterol in coconut milk, or in any vegetable/fruit/nut. Cholesterol is only found in animal products. However the saturated fat content of coconut milk is quite high,, but there are some people who have been saying that the saturated fat in coconut milk is different from the saturated fat in other things, and even go so far as to say that it's good for your circulation. The most unbiased opinion I've ever seen on this stuff says that the jury is still out. ' ' it is much healthier than other saturated fat products, and the fat is easily metabolized by the body. Coconut milk also offers some particular health benefits. It is anti-carcinogenic, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral.' i love the taste personally, sometimes make it with ricemilk too, requires very little just enough to help the handblender. Also bananas shouldnt be tooo frozen (my cheap blender stopped working!). I love dark chocolate and banana stops me from having so much!

    First ever 'blog'!

    Hello Ive started taking pics of the food I make, well if I get around to it! I have lots of ideas of wat to make and really it's getting the motivation to cook! It doesn't take much time, and costs less. I'm going to try and keep accurate recipes as I tend to bung anything in that matches. I look around markets for interesting fruit anfd veg, and also like the idea of using seasonal veg. Enjoying looking at foody blogs at the moment, some of the creativity is really nice (chinese food art!) I dont use adverts so sharing a blog purely out of love for food!

    Eggless Cakes

    I used vegan ingredients but creamcheese for the icing as I didnt have any vegan creamcheese. I use 1 heaped tablespoon of whey protein from a healthfoodshop and a touch of soymilk to replace one egg. soy milk instead of cow milk, and sunflower margerine, also can get ricemilk or almondmilk but soy is the cheapest from 60p/litre The lotuspaste filled cakes are chinese and served hot Dr Pepper cake, i used a can of soda to make the cake rise instead of eggs, chocolate cake as i didnt have any lighter sodapop! Finally some cinnamon buns! the only danish i like! Im really enjoying cooking to the point it might be annoying, but i no longer have to go shopping as much and like the idea of living greener, also can bring something nice to my friends houses
