Starving Artist Recipes I used to live in Seattle and one of the big things I miss about that city is Tom Douglas’s Serious Pie restaurant. It is seriously intense, with their stone-encased applewood burning ovens, exclusive charcuterie, and artisan cheeses. But my fav is their Yukon Gold Potato with Rosemary and Pecorino Romano Pizza. While flights from LA to Seattle aren’t super expensive, making this pizza (or as close to it as possible) is a better alternative. You need to be a bit organized to get the timing right, but it’s very worth the time so stick with it. Makes: 2 pizzasTime: 30 minutesPizza Dough Ingredients: 3 3/4 cup bread flour, 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast, 3/4 tsp salt, 3/4 tsp sugar, 1 1/3 cup lukewarm water, a few drops of olive oilPizza Topping Ingredients: 3-4 large yukon potatoes, 3 tsp salt, 1/2 yellow onion, 2-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary, pepper, a few drops of olive oil, 2-3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese 5:00pm: In a large bowl combine the flour, yeast, salt and sugar.
Barbara Canepa: "THE CIRCUS gallery" DIY Natural Clay Mascara (that actually works) » Humblebee & Me Speaking of things I wasn’t sure I’d ever crack—mascara. There’s a reason this is my first entry of my third year of blogging. I have been trying to figure out mascara for ages now. First off, mascara must dry quickly—but not too quickly. Once it’s on your lashes, it mustn’t flake, but it also mustn’t melt. Then, after all that, it must actually do something. As it turns out, it is very difficult to achieve all of these things without the use of coal tar, a wide variety of solvents and petroleum-derived dyes, and a heavy dose of chemistry inspired magic. My initial experiments focused around activated charcoal mashed together with oil thickened with wax. From there I moved to experiments with activated charcoal or black oxide in a thickened water base, but all that got me was utterly crap gel-type mixtures with bits of black suspended in them. Finally—clay. Clays make a brilliant paste, and are naturally inclined to dry quickly.
KANAKO OKAMOTO Maly Siri's Pinup Doodles Fun Crafts With Used Plastic Every now and then we like to take a break from the big news headlines and explore the creative world. We know you love crafts, perhaps almost as much as you love recycling. We tried to think of an abundant resource that you regularly toss, and plastic was the first thing to come to mind. While we highly tout recycling all types of resins, we also love getting our hands dirty and making really cool stuff out of those bags under the sink or those bottles in the fridge. Geometric Lamp Shade When we saw Sarah Turner’s trendy lamp made from plastic drink bottles, we had to learn how to make it – without an electrician and a ton of money. Your best option for material is HDPE, or plastic #2. What you’ll need: Tracing design (get it here), HDPE bottles (number of bottles depends on size of your lamp), a raw socket on a cord (try Ikea), CFL bulb (it won’t melt the plastic) Step #1: Trace your pieces and cut them using scissors or a knife. Step #2: The assembly will be the hardest part. Yarn

Tumblr Benjamin artworks How To Grow An Avocado Tree Highly flavored and nutritious, avocados signal a healthy diet, whether we’re talking about guacamole or salad. If you like not having to make regular trips to the grocery for your daily supply of fresh avocados, try growing an avocado tree at home. It’s surprisingly easy. In 10 easy steps, you will see how you too can get a full-grown avocado tree from a little seed, making the whole process very educational and easy to remember. STEP 1: Without cutting the pit from the avocado, remove and wash clean of all the avocado fruit. STEP 2: All avocado pits, despite not being perfect round shapes, have a top and bottom side. STEP 3: Next, stick 4 toothpicks into the top side of the avocado seed. STEP 4: Place the glass with the half-submerged avocado in a place with sunlight. STEP 5: Sprouting can take as long as 8 weeks, although many websites suggest only 2-4 weeks. STEP 6: There are a few tricks when it comes to planting the newly born sprouts. And there you have it.
