happy friday + megadoily... 29 Jan 2010


Happy last Friday of January all! This month has really flown by. Today, I leave you with this super fun mega doily rug by the girls over at Ladies & Gentlemen. This rug (and DIY instructions) will be part of a new book, Crafting a Meaningful Home by Meg Mateo Ilasco, coming out this fall and published by STC Craft. I've seen this piece in person, and it's seriously amazing!

And congrats to Jennifer C. from Long Beach, CA for winning the Lines & Shapes collection! Thanks to everyone who entered! Have a great weekend all!

{taste tested}: readymade mochi rice cakes 27 Jan 2010


A few months ago, I posted this recipe for making your very own mochi rice cakes to sprinkle on top your faux Pinkberry homemade frozen yogurt. While the recipe isn't too difficult, I've found pre-made mochi you can buy! {And isn't buying something always easier than making it?}

Nuts Online carries mochi rice cakes in 1 lb. bags that can be stored in the refrigerator for up to six months. This version is pretty comparable to the mochi found at Pinkberry and is perfect to have on hand for home snacking. One their own, the sweet rice flavor is magnified and tastes similar in texture and flavor to marshmallows. But these suckers really do shine when topped on tart frozen yogurt as the tart balances out the sweet mochi leaving a firm, chewy, and yummy texture.

Final thoughts...4.5 out of 5 happy ladies!
