Recipe: Sweet Potato Cheddar CrackersSo, the crackers in the recipe link are thin, an actual cracker thickness, despite the direction of rolling the dough to 1/4” thick.  I rolled them out thinner than that but clearly the recipe is a bit confused.  Anyway, because they were so thick, they developed croissant-like layers!  The sweet potato makes them too soft to be crackers (or they weren’t crisp enough because of the dough thickness) but if you think of them as soft pillowy clouds instead of crackers then they’re delicious.  You may have noticed my fondness of pepper…of course I topped the crackers with extra pepper instead of salt.

I found a two year old sound recording of a cat snoring.

WHY DOES CAFFEINE ONLY WORK SOME DAYS?  BECAUSE RIGHT NOW I HAVE THE CAFFEINE AND I HAVE ENERGY AND AM DRAWING.

Just when I was thinking about attempting some homemade ginger chews for digestion I stumbled across these guys!

I made some marbled paper with shaving cream!  
Here’s how.  (Tumblr link)

I seem to have misplaced these papers…things get lost when I reorganize. 

Recipe: Sweet Potato, Quinoa, and Dark Chocolate Coconut Crumble Crunch MuffinsThese were alright, but without the chocolate chips they didn’t have much taste.  Pumpkin or banana can be used instead of the sweet potato, both of which might give them more flavor.  I ate the last few spread with strawberry jam…it sounds strange, I know.There’s a slight problem with the recipe.  Salt is listed in the directions but not the ingredients, so I threw in a 1/4 tsp (maybe the flavor problem was from not enough salt.  They could definitely use more cinnamon anyway, there’s only 1/8 tsp!).

I can’t say if this was the most delicious of all the dinners or if it just tasted even better because I was so hungry.  (The bite shot wasn’t planned, I was just too hungry to take photos!)Pizza-type thing: toasted naan spread with goat cream cheese, topped with cooked apple and onion slices, black pepper & pecans.Eaten with Trader Joe’s scrumpdiddlyumptious sweet potato chips.

Not only does Trader Joe’s have delicious food, but they have junk food without preservatives!  I’m not sure of the exact ingredient(s) that bothers me, but on separate occasions I ate sweet onion flavored wheat thins and harvest cheddar flavored sun chips and my stomach hurt for a week.Not fun.Chocolate Covered Pretzel Slims: The chocolate to pretzel ratio…mmm!Vanilla Joe Joe’s: PUT DOWN YOUR OREOS AND EAT THESE (if you happen to have access to a TJ’s).  They have taste, a not fake taste!  The creme has vanilla bean flecks!Cowgirl Bark: So-so.  If I made it myself I would have mixed the toppings in throughout the chocolate for taste (it wouldn’t be as presentable, but I’ve always valued taste over appearance.  Don’t even get me started on store bought bakery cakes.)Goat’s Milk Cream Cheese: Yess.  So good on apple slices.

Just a warm up weaving (that I’ll take apart) because I’m having trouble making things.

I found this little collection of (discounted!) Scottish jams.  They were much sweeter and stronger tasting than the jams I’m used to, so a thin layer was best.  They were:- Orange marmalade: plain and one with champagne (I used these in grilled cheese sandwiches!) and one with ginger (too strong, couldn’t eat)- Strawberry: plain and with champagne- Blackcurrant- Lemon curd
