Few Things I made Lately...

Hi there!
How are you all?
Winter seems not have an end this year...yesterday we got rain and also snow again...
Today was better but...tomorrow...snow and rain again... this period...I'm feeling a little bit more crafty...LOL!!!
I would love to show you what I made lately...
I needed a new coffee set so I made these coasters and trivet.

I love the way they turned out because I think they are happy!

And so...they are making more happy my kitchen and my coffee break!

Then...I needed something for my oven...a kind of oven cover...
As my kitchen is grey and white and curtains are red...I chose the same colors for fabrics and I made this:

It has the perfect size for cover my oven...

I made rounded borders because I like them more then squared ones...

I like how it looks over my oven...what do you think?

And then...I made this mug rug as a gift for a friend...

Today I made another project but...I'll show you it in a separate post...
So...what are you making lately?
I would love to hear from you!!!
I wish you a nice week!!!!
Love and hugs,

For the love of cooking

How are you today?
Well...I hope you are feeling better than me...
I got up yesterday with...the flu...bleahhhh...
Fever, sore throat and pain everywhere...
So yesterday I spent all the day into my bed...
Today...the fever is gone so...I can stay up...

But...I have to spend all the day inside in the house so...I started with an healthy breakfast...
Banana, apple, almonds and red fruits...mmm...sooo yummy!!!!

Then I decided to give myself an unusual lunch...maple syrup pancakes...
Cause I'm sick...I need some sweetness...LOL!!!!

Aaaanndddd...last bu not least...I made some chocolate muffins...
Well...nothing of particular strange you can think but...I bake them into the microwave!!!!!
Did you ever try this????
In just 6 can have glorious muffins!!!!!

This is my recipe for about 6 muffins:

1/2 teaspoon baking powder
30 gr butter
60 gr dark chocolate
75 gr all purpose flour
1 egg
45 ml milk
70 gr sugar

Put in a bowl chopped butter and chocolate  and put them into the microwave for about 30-40 seconds or until they melt...
Then put the egg, milk, butter and chocolate in the blender and mix all together...
Put flour and baking powder in a large bowl and well mix them...
Then add the liquids ingredients to the flour and mix everything well.
Now put your mixture into cups and bake them into the microwave at the highest temperature for about 3 minutes!!!
Your muffins are ready and they taste...awesome!!!!

I wish everyone a nice day!!!!
Love, Dany.

Smoothies World

Hello my Friends!!!
How are you all?
It's long time that I didn't write here in my blog...shame on me!
Well...not much things are happened...still living alone, still working (fortunately), still sewing and crafting from time to time...not as much as I would like but...a bit more...

Lately...I "meet" the smoothies world...I discovered them on Pinterest (LOL) and tried them!!!

The first one I've tried was made of  spinach, 2 carrots, 1 orange, one babana, a bit of water.
You can't believe how delicious it was!

Simply put all the ingredients in the blender and...voilà!!!!
Your smoothie is ready to be "drunk".

Then I've tried another one for breakfast.

This one was made of 1 apple, 1 banana, spinach, 5 almonds, a bit of water, 1 teaspoon of maple syrup and a bit of cinnamon.

Again put all the ingredients in the blender few minuts your delicious and so healthy breakfast is done!!!

I think they are great for eating fruits and veggies every day!
You can made them in a gazillion of differents way...and have one different each day if you want!
Did you ever tried them?
Do you have some nice recipe to share?
Can't wait to try a new one!!!!!

I wish you all a nice week and...can't wait to hear from you!!!!!
Love, Dany.
