One of my coworkers wants me to make her a cake and she's going to pay me for it. What do you think I should charge for a two-layer chocolate cake made from scratch with chocolate frosting all wrapped up in a box?

I need to find someone who crochets well enough to reproduce a pair of gloves I found on the sidewalk.

I will pay for supplies and labor. There is the possibility of wanting two pairs in different colors.

They are incredibly delicate, with a very wide stitch, and more decoration at the bottom. They are wrist length.

Anyone interested?

my kitchenaid mixer's on the fritz, so let's hope the ole singer holds up until i schlep the mixer to an authorized fixer-upper. till then, i'll attempt to sew stuff together and maybe end up with some clothes.

it all began a couple days ago when i bought this frock for 48 dollars. i figured "fuck that! i'm gonna figure out how to make this and get my 48 bucks back."




first i had to find a suitably disgusting fabric. the closest i came was this:



so i got five yards. i hope it'll all work out. my kingdom for fabric closely resembling the original icky thingie.


also, does anyone know where i can get paper for making my own patterns? every time i'm in the fabric store i forget to ask.

When you have to be to work at 2:30 am, do not try to make butter cream frosting for the first time.
Never again will I promise my coworkers a bunny-shaped cake.

A couple weeks ago I picked up a little bunny from Target, intending to make Baby Noah an easter basket. I figured I needed to make Jesse one too, and also one for a special lady-friend of mine who loves booze and hates Peeps.


boozy basket

She maked this drink that's Goldschlager, Jagermeister and grenadine. Barf-a-rama.

Jesse's easter basket has already been consumed, but it was all peanut butter.

black and white METAL fudge cheesecake pie




the chocolate crust with delicious fudge. i'd like to thank unsalted butter, walnuts, my food processor and Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate for existing.

then you make some cheesecake (and warm it up a little so you can achieve the marbleized/metal look) and dump it all over the fudge. then dump some strategically placed fudge atop the cheesecake.



for the birthday boy who enjoys ass-rocking metal and cheesecake.

I made strawberry tarts and they turned out super nasty.

Also, I made up a cheesecake recipe off of the top of my head which is

two 8 oz packages of room temperature cream cheese
2 room temperature eggs
1/4 cup of flour
1 cup of sugar
2 shots of amaretto

preheat oven to 350

a prepaired pie crust or you can mix 1.5 cup of graham crumbs, 1/2 cup sugar and 5 tblspn of melted butter and smash it into the bottom of a pan or whatever

mix the cream cheese and sugar and flour until it seems to be well blended.

add each egg one at a time

toss in the booze and blend it all up

pour it in the crust

bake for... I don't know- it depends. I say let it go for 15 minutes,and then check. What you're looking for is for it to still be undone in the center a bit. So, check it every 5-7 minutes after the 15 minute mark.

let it cool for a bit, and then put it inthe fridge for a few hours.


I am teaching myself how to make cheesecake right now. Any tips or trick would be much appreciated!

I never liked Jessica Alba. As it turns out, I can make any lady look like a man.
