I wanted to share with you our Serbian traditional way of dying Easter eggs - no artificial colors or dyes needed.
Put any leaves you like on the surface of the egg and carefully place them in a stocking. Boil these eggs in water full of onion skins. The result are beautiful, earthly colors and interesting patterns.
ZOMG I will do this
EARTH TONES ARE MY FAVORITE <3
A few of you lately have asked for recipes with common kitchen items, King Arthur Flour has a search system that allows you to search recipes with the top 4 items you have in your kitchen. Yes you can search by Ingredients! :)
So let’s say you have eggs, sugar, milk, cinnamon and you want to find a recipe using these 4 items, you plug in those keywords into their search and you’ll get a list of recipes that include those 4 items! It’s witchcraft I tell ya ;)
CUSTOM TEA GIVEAWAY!
Hey guys! I wanted to do something to really kickstart the blog, and I just got a fantastic idea - I want to do a custom Adagio tea giveaway!
The prize will be 3 oz (which is equivalent to 40-50 cups!) of a custom-made blend of loose-leaf, with up to three of the almost 150 available Adagio ingredients.
On top of that, your tea blend will also come with custom artwork!
Here’s some examples of some of the custom art I’ve made for my own blends/blends for friends of mine:
Here are the RULES:
- You must be following fuck-yeah-tea!
- You may reblog as many times as you like!
- You may not reblog to sideblogs or giveaway blogs! That’s not fair, guys. :/
- You must be comfortable with giving me an address I can send the tea to - otherwise how are you going to get it?
- The giveaway will end on APRIL 16TH at MIDNIGHT.
- Winners will be chosen with a random number generator.
- Please make sure your askbox is open! If I cannot send you an ask telling you that you’ve won, or if you do not respond within two days, I will pick another winner.
- If you don’t want to pick the ingredients yourself, you can tell me what kinds of tea you like and I’d be happy to make a blend for you.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! Good luck, everyone!
hot damn, a giveaway im actually interested in
Take 5 Candy Bar Pie
For the Pretzel Crust:
4 ounces pretzel sticks, finely ground in a food processor or blender
½ cup unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
For the Caramel Sauce:
¾ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup water
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
¾ cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
For the Pie:
½ cup creamy peanut butter, melted
1/3 cup prepared caramel sauce
¼ cup coarsely chopped peanuts
10 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
1. Make the Crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together the ground pretzels, melted butter, and sugar. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and chill in the refrigerator until firm, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
2. Meanwhile, Make the Caramel Sauce. Whisk the sugar, water, and corn syrup in a medium-size heavy saucepan until well combined. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook the sugar mixture, without stirring, until it becomes a rich caramel color, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and slowly whisk in the cream until the caramel sauce is smooth, using caution as the mixture may bubble up. (If the sauce seizes, stir it over low heat until the hardened caramel is melted.) Whisk in the butter and set aside.
3. Assemble the Pie: Smooth the warmed peanut butter evenly over the bottom of the pretzel crust. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Pour the caramel sauce over the peanut butter layer and gently spread with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle the chopped peanuts over the caramel layer. Refrigerate for another 10 minutes. Finish with a smooth layer of melted chocolate. Refrigerate the pie until the chocolate is firm, about 30 minutes. Pie can then remain at room temperature until serving. If you have leftovers, cover with plastic wrap and keep at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
*Note: You will not use the entire batch of caramel sauce that you make. You can keep the leftovers in the refrigerator for ice cream topping, apple dipping, or eating with a spoon.
