welcome julia and how to make a repeat pattern hello hello. thank you Grace for having me this week! I am very excited to be here. Besides introducing you to some cool artists, giving sneak peeks and before and afters of some friends homes, and sharing my favorite new product finds, I thought it would be nice to share some of the things I have learned along the way of being a illustrator/pattern designer. One of the questions I frequently get emailed is -how do you make a repeat pattern? I thought it would be fun today to do a little tutorial showing you how simple it is even with a very complex drawing. On a clean piece of paper draw a design in the middle of your paper without letting any of the drawing touch the edges- this is very important. Once you finish the middle space as much as you want you are going to cut your drawing in half- scary I know- but that’s why computers are helpful. Next you are going to cut your drawing in half again the other way- (yikes!) And here’s my finished design:

Homemade Butter Making butter at home is surprisingly easy to do. All you need is fresh heavy cream—and maybe a little salt, if you want salted butter. That’s it. (No, really: That’s it.) No, you don’t need a butter churn Unless, of course, you have one. When I told one of my best friends that I made butter, he exclaimed something like, “Wait, you don’t have a butter churn…do you?” (If you know me—and you know how much cooking equipment is socked away in our kitchen and basement—it’s always good to doublecheck these details.) No, I don’t have a butter churn. I have something better: An electric mixer. As good as it would be for my arms, I’m not sure I could hack churning butter the old-fashioned way. I should note that this isn’t a cheaper way of stocking up on butter. But you don’t make butter this way because you want to save money. Which everyone should do at least once in their life. What is butter made of, anyway? Butter is made of a few things: Butterfat, water, and milk proteins. Homemade Butter

Healthy Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust I was planning to share a quinoa, kale and tofu skillet recipe this morning, however plans changed after I had one bite of the pizza I made last night for dinner. Don’t get me wrong, the kale and tofu dish is great (I’ll still post the recipe sometime this week). However, this pizza isn’t your average pie and judging from the response I got when I posted an Instragram photo on Facebook last night, the recipe needed to be shared right away. The thing that makes this pizza so unique is that the crust is made out of cauliflower – yes, the vegetable! I honestly can’t remember when or where I first saw the idea for pizza made with a cauliflower crust (probably Pinterest), but I know that it has been done many times before. I used this blog post from DAMY Health as a guide and came up with a variation of the recipe. So yes, pizza CAN BE healthy! Healthy Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust Pre-heat oven to 400° F. I found that it’s easier to eat this pizza with a fork/knife.
