untitled Rain makes everything better. 9GAG - Just For Fun Photos of the World Deep Dish Fruit Pizza My sister-in-law Missy first introduced me to the concept of fruit pizza years and years ago, and here’s how: she brought one to my house and I proceeded to eat the whole thing. But it was small. And I was nursing. My mammary glands made me do it. I whipped up a whopper of a fruit pizza a couple of weeks ago using my good ol’ standby sugar cookie recipe…and it was so darn good in such a naughty, naughty way. This is one of those fun, throw-together treats that’s perfect for everything from a slumber party to a baby shower. Sorry I said mammary glands. The Cast of Characters: my sugar cookie dough (recipe below), marshmallow creme, cream cheese, peaches, kiwi, blueberries…and whatever other fruit you’d like! Now, you could divide the dough in half, then roll out each half into thin, round pizzas. Or you could do what I done did… And press the whole quantity of dough into a sheet pan. I love this pebbly texture. Then just throw it in the oven… Then just let the crust cool completely. So I deet.

untitled Heathy Ritual Of The Week: Detox Baths Where detoxification is concerned, I am of the ilk that slow and steady changes lead to the most lasting results. Detoxifying baths a few times a week can be a small ritual that can add tons of vitality to your life! If more of us had an awareness that our skin was an actual organ there would be a lot less chemical nonsense in the beauty stuff we slather all over ourselves filled with carcinogenic chemicals, allergens and other toxic pollutants. The fact that we have this giant organ called our skin that can absorb and also expel pollution in our bodies shines a light on the fact that things like baths can actually affect our health. There are a few baths I like to alternate when I am feeling tense, exhausted or run down. **Before you start, make sure to scrub your skin a bit with a loofa or other coarse washcloth or a soft brush when you begin the soak so that you can maximize the effects. **Always keep water beside you in the tub and drink tons while you soak

Better-Than-Crack-Brownies I’m sorry for doing this to you. I really am. But see, last Friday while I was on a 10-hour road trip heading for vacation, I received this recipe from a reader named Liz. Liz, I love you. That’s all I have to say. I was tortured by this recipe for a full 8 days before I could make it. So it was the first thing I made when I returned home. These are an absolute sin. I really don’t have any words, other than you must try them. They may also change your waistline too. But that’s okay. It’s all in the name of chocolate. Better-Than-Crack Brownies 1 batch brownies (boxed mix or oooey gooey brownies) 1/2 cup salted peanuts (if don’t have salted, add sea salt) 1 cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips 1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter 1/2 tablespoon butter 1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal Mix brownies according to directions, and bake for 20-25 minutes in a 9 x 13 baking dish. While they are finishing baking, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Mr.

French Cuisine In Italian, 'Strozzapreti' translates to "priest choker" or "priest strangler," but in a culinary context they are typically an elongated form of cavatelli (or fusilli). In Corsica, and throughout the Tuscan and Umbria regions of Italy, Strozzapreti can also refer to a baked cheese and vegetable dish, or gnocchi. It has been said that the gnocchi are large enough to choke a person (read: priest) if eaten whole, hence the name "priest choker." I hope that doesn't render these dumplings unappetizing! I love these little dumplings. {Use fresh ricotta and fresh really makes the dish.} Serves 6 starter servings or 4 main-course servings Ingredients 10 ounces spinach, trimmed 1 pound whole-milk ricotta or fresh brocciu, if you can get it 1 large egg 5 ounces cheese, such as Gruyere or Emmenthal or a combination of Gruyere and Parmesan, grated (about 1 1/4 cup) 1 bunch mint leaves, finely chopped (about 1 cup) 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for shaping Olive oil Preparation

Strawberry-Lemonade Muffins Last Christmas, my mom got me a subscription to Southern Living magazine. My favorite part of each new issue is hands-down the food section. They feature classic recipes along with new finds from chefs around the Southeast. The April 2012 issue devotes an entire section to strawberry desserts, and I couldn’t resist trying out their recipe for strawberry-lemonade muffins. Mix the flour and sugar and make a little well… Add in all the other ingredients except for the strawberries. Stir… but not too much. Fold in those berries. Folded. Pour into muffin tin. Sprinkle on some extra sugar and bake at 400 for “16-18 minutes.” Yay. Supposedly, this recipe makes 15 muffins, but somehow I ended up with 19. This post was originally published in 2010 The tips and techniques explained may be outdated. Follow this step by step post processing guide to give your photos a dark lomo style effect with high contrast, blue tones and vignette burns. The effect is based on the popular lomographic technique and is similar to the processing effect used in many fashion shots and advertisement designs. Overall this effect does a great job of adding impact to a plain photography with cool colour casts and unusual saturation. View full size photo effect Begin by opening your photograph of choice into Adobe Photoshop. Go to Image > Adjustments > Levels and tweak the tones of the image. At the bottom of the Layers palette, click the Adjustment Layer icon and select Curves. Change the drop down menu to Green and tweak the graph for the green channel to further alter the tones of the image. Finally alter the Blue channel, creating an inverted ‘S’ shape to enhance the blues to give a cool colour cast.

Homestuck-Related Cosplay - Page 47 Okay bros and broettes. This is my Homestuck troll makeup tutorial. I am covering a generic nebulous who the fuck knows who it is troll in this. You can use it as a base for any troll except Gamzee; his makeup differs in a ton of ways, and while I tried and failed to get a tutorial for that one tonight, I'll at least give some pointers at the end. And it was not particularly easy.However, the few major things that are different about Gamzee than the other trolls:-You want to buy two white, two grey, and one slate grey, because...

Caramel Brownie Cheesecake — Eat Laugh Surf This is a monkeyhead concoction so please don’t be disappointed with me that it’s not 100% homemade. Sometimes as a mom you have to go with your childrens ideas in order to lift their creative wings. Monkey One loves cheesecake and caramel, Monkey Two has a passion for brownies you put the two of these knuckleheads together and look at what they come up with… Caramel Brownie Cheesecake. M2 loves his brownie mix above because while I’m at work he can whip up a batch with my surfer and feel like he has stepped out of his sous chef role into the postion of head honcho. While the boys made the brownie mix I lined a springform pan with parchment paper. Once the brownie mix was in the oven we moved on to making Jamie’s caramel. In a heavy saucepan stir together the sugar, syrup and water until the sugar is completely moistened. Stirring constantly over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the syrup is bubbling. Stir in the butter and salt. Voila! Stirring constantly until smooth. Enjoy!
