Avocado Banana Crepes

This simple recipe is fantastic! I just made them this morning and I’m still gorging on them as I type. I had an avocado that I needed to use up. Crepes are the go-to for any extra fruits and veggies.

INGREDIENTS


2 large eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup  flour

1 1/4 cups (or more) milk 

Melted butter

1 Avocado

2 bananas

*Coconut Oil


INSTRUCTIONS

Mix eggs and salt in large bowl.Whisk in flour, then 1 1/4 cups milk.  Let stand 1 hour.

(Add more milk by tablespoonfuls to batter to thin if needed).

Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add coconut oil.

Pour 1/3 cup batter into skillet and swirl to coat bottom evenly.

Cook until top appears dry, loosening sides of crepe with spatula, about 45 seconds. Turn and cook until brown spots appear on second side, about 30 seconds. Turn crepe out onto plate. Repeat with remaining batter, brushing skillet with butter and stacking crepes on plate.


Topping!

Peel and slice your avocado and bananas.

Add to your crepes and enjoy! (If you want it sweeter, go ahead and add sugar to the frying pan or sprinkle directly on the crepes).

PICK YOUR POISON: DESIGN INSPIRATION

I’m particularly fond of the strange and unusual.

With furniture, that means I like it to ‘pop’. When I walk into a room, I’d like it tell me a story. The genre of story, doesn’t necessarily have to be specific, but  knowing a story exists …now that’s the holy grail of design.

My usual method of inspiration (being the age of technology), is the internet. Specifically, the image selection on the search engine. When I need a muse, I surf!

Today’s search started off with #coffee furniture.

 


This of course led into retro, contemporary and future furniture. Some of these designs are still in the ‘concept’ mode.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


For the designs that are still stuck in concept mode, I’d like to think a little hard-work, determination and a credit line at Home Depot will correct the issue at hand.

The issue being: I want said furniture. Solution: Make my own. (Or at least get close to it).

Of course if I make my own, I can’t sell it. The concept wouldn’t mine. But I’m not a furniture dealer…so who cares? And the futuristic items are just that…in the future. I can’t buy them!  But the overall design or theme, already exists.

Hmmmm….where will I go from here?

Who knows?! It could all just be wishful thinking.

But damn…it sure is fun to dream!

COCKTAILS, SHOTS AND SHOOTERS

At this point most of my readers are aware of my obsession with food. At least, the creation and ‘design’ process of a new recipe.

So today I’ve decided to travel off my well worn ‘food’ path and delve into beverages. Specifically, cocktails!

33 Amazing Sculptures From Around The World

I’m smack in the middle of the biggest artist’s block known to man. I’ve got  canvas, acrylics, oils, brushes etc…and my mind is blank. This is typically when I Google search ‘madness’, so to to speak. Randomly typing in the first words that come to mind. The ‘images’ feature, by far, is my favorite Google feature. Today’s search was so fascinating, I feel the need to share. Maybe it’ll help you with your artist’s block, inspire a novel or just help you unwind. Today’s search : Odd Sculptures

Which ones are beacons of hope, fantasy and illusion? Which ones are the artist’s amazing rendering of their waking nightmare?  You decide.

Top 20 Valentine’s Day DIY Projects

Top 20 Valentine’s Day DIY Projects

 

The Pinterest bug hit this morning with a vengeance! As a result, we’ve created a few things and surfed the net to keep our minds in the Valentine’s DIY spirit. Here are a few things we found. By ‘we’, I mean my daughter and I. Of course… one can only surmise at this point, that I yanked her into my crazy crafting hot glue obsession. At least…she liked the throw blanket that we picked up for a  whopping $5…. Go us!

15781436_1377608828940227_1475098543629871378_n

So we of course…hot glued a bunch of stuff. The best part about hot glue, is the fact that you can PEEL IT OFF! You can re-use all your dollar store goodies for other DIY projects.

And we went nuts on the fireplace…..

It doesn’t take a trained eye to notice the clean, eclectic, bright and yet classic pattern of 2017’s design trends.

I don’t know about you, my lovely reader, but I can craft and Pin with the best of them! Dollar stores, craft stores and thrift-stores can make this years interior design projects much less expensive. And when you create the design, it holds a much deeper meaning.  When you’re relaxing on the sofa enjoying your splendid handy-work, give yourself a pat on the back and stare in awe at your incredible artistic vision.

Currently I’m working on some Valentine’s goodies…that should keep me occupied for a while. Happy Bargain Hunting!
