Baked Garbanzo Beans Recipe. My kids love to snack.

Baked Garbanzo Beans Recipe

(Who am I kidding? So do their dad and I.) When I was pregnant with my third child, I went through a vegetarian kick and discovered tons of recipes that we loved. Baked Garbanzo Beans (Chick Peas) was one of them. This healthy, nutritious snack is a total hit and I wanted to share the recipe with you. As usual, in keeping true to my easy-to-make recipes theme, this recipe requires very few ingredients and is very simple to make. While the steps are easy and preparation is quick, you’ll need to plan to be in the kitchen for about 45 minutes and be able to check on the garbanzo beans every ten minutes or so. After you’ve drained and rinsed the garbanzo beans, place them on a couple sheets of paper towel and pat them dry. Add the paprika and chili powder to the garbanzo beans.

Every ten minutes or so, shake the cookie sheet around so that the garbanzo beans move and don’t burn. This is a nutritious, healthy snack that I’m sure everyone will love.

Salvaged cupboard door = serving tray - Craftynest. I noticed this stash of cupboard doors at my local salvage yard.

Salvaged cupboard door = serving tray - Craftynest

The white one was the perfect size to make a serving tray. The old drawer pulls—also found at the salvage yard—made ideal handles. Their swirly shape gave me the inspiration for the pattern I painted. All it took was a little black paint. As with many of my projects, the possibilities are limitless: change the handles, add découpage or fabric, paint it a different color, or just leave it classic white.

The Handy Hausfrau: Portable Spice Kit for Camping or Travel

" We have a second home (a ski condo in the mountains) and I am constantly filling up Ziplock bags with various spices for cooking. Why don't I just leave the spices up there? You ask. We rent the condo out and on more than one occasion, I've searched for my crushed red pepper, only to find that a renter used the last of it on his pepperoni pizza slice. The Boy Trifecta: Dino Spike Crochet Pattern. I sort of think it does. Or at least it seems so to me. And I've definitely got the crochet bug these days. Octopus amigurumi crochet doll by JennyDork on Etsy. Koala Bear Amigurumi. I found a Koala Amigurumi Pattern in the Woman’s Day website and I have some off-white and gray organic cotton yarns on hand, so I made a pair of these small little stuffed koalas for my kids in reverse color.

Some ideas to make it differently: 1. This adorable little koala is about 3-5″ tall only (depend on your yarn and the matching hook size), install a key ring on it’s head and turn it into a key chain, hang it to the bag’s zipper. 2. If we sew the limbs closer to the center of the body and insert 4 small strong magnets to the tip of each limb, you can make it “huggy” and hug on a tree branch or at the edge of your curtain or your pencil, ruler etc… 3. And, and…. instead of poly-fills, stuff beads into the body to weight it down and with the magnets of it limbs, it can be a cute memo holder on your desk too. Outside - How to Make Instructables - Offset 180. Lesson Plan: Worlds Easiest Skirt. My sewing skills are pretty much limited to making my machine go forwards and backwards with a straight stitch. If you can do that (and also handle a pair of scissors), you can make this skirt. This lesson plan comes largely thanks to Susan of freshly picked, whose incredible and much more lucid elastic-waist skirt pattern you can find here.

The first several steps are hers, and are much easier to understand on her blog. Thanks also to Kendi, who told me that I could add text using Picasa and contributed to any clarity this lesson plan has. P.S. In between these steps, measure your waist and the length you'd like the skirt. And remember to wash, dry, and iron your fabric before you begin, since fabric often shrinks!
