Chocolate Lava Cake in a Mug. I eat dessert almost every night. I don't feel guilty about it when I use the recipes from Chocolate Covered Katie because they use healthy ingredients and aren't loaded with sugar. The mug cakes are the perfect serving size and don't create a ton of dishes to wash. For this mug cake I added some raspberry jam.
Chinese Chicken and Noodle Salad from EatingWell: Comfort Foods Made Healthy. I can't shovel this into my mouth fast enough! I made my own variation, adding in shredded radishes and cilantro, and using the crispy noodles from a can instead of the ramen.
Small loaf of bread from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. After moving to the south, I learned very quickly that bread will get moldy if left on the counter for more than a couple days. So small loaves were the answer, and it is really great being able to have fresh bread ready in about an hour.
I put aside my purple sweater once again to make my husband a cowl for Valentine's Day.
While I like the design, I think it needs a bit more; I will add some honeycomb cables to the empty diamonds to give it more oomph.
I really love honeycomb cables (for example my Honeycomb Hive Hat), and I'm thinking of playing off this design to also make a hat and fingerless gloves.
I wrote earlier this week about my Oakridge Blouse disaster. I think I have worked out all the fit problems, and I'm still trying to decide which fabric I want to cut for my next try.
I have quite a few flowy fabrics that would work, but I think I will try another crisp cotton for easy sewing. I will need to work up to using a slippery polyester or rayon!
