    My Mad Card Making Skills

    As usual I can’t help myself when it comes to making cards for special events and holidays.  Here are examples of the past two years; 2017 was more vintage and sweet and this year more graphic and gold.

     

    Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

    (Make a heart shaped crust for Valentine’s Day) 

    Ingredients

    1 small to medium sized head of cauliflower – should yield 2 to 3 cups once processed

    ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese

    ¼ cup mozzarella cheese

    1 egg

    ¼ teaspoon salt

    ½ teaspoon garlic powder

    1 cup marinara sauce

    1-2 cups mozzarella cheese

    Instructions

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

    Remove the stems from the cauliflower and cut into chunks, Place the cauliflower into a food processor and pulse it until it resembles the texture of rice. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a cheese grater or chop it very finely. But quickest way is to just buy the pre-chopped (riced) packaged cauliflower at your local grocery store.

    Microwave the chopped cauliflower uncovered in a microwave safe bowl for approximately 4-5 minutes on high. Remove it from the microwave and allow it to cool for at least 4-5 minutes (trust me don’t rush this step!). After the cauliflower is slightly cooled, place it in a kitchen towel and squeeze all the liquid out of it. Be sure to squeeze as much liquid as humanly possible.

    Combine the cooked cauliflower, egg, garlic, cheese, and seasonings. Stir until a dough texture forms. Spread the cauliflower mixture out onto lightly greased parchment paper or a pizza pan in the shape of a pizza crust.

    Bake the crust for approximately 10-15 minutes (depending on your oven), or until the crust is golden and crispy. I cooked mine for approximately 15 minutes. After the crust is golden remove it from the oven and add your toppings, you can use marinara sauce and cheese for a simple margarita pizza.

    Place the pizza back in the oven but this time turn on the broiler, bake for about 2-5 minutes until the cheese melts. be sure to keep an eye on it because the broiler can burn the cheese quickly.

    Slice and serve warm , enjoy!

    New Year, New Opportunities

    Happy New Year!

    2018 is off and running quickly…we are already half way through January! In a new year people become  expectant about hearing from the Lord and anticipating what they can look forward to in the next twelve months.  It is exciting to to hear what new beginnings and hope our lives will experience in the days ahead.

    I believe that the Holy Spirit is speaking to our hearts about His purpose for each of us in this season. Our purpose will become more and more defined as the year progresses.  As we surrender all to Him, this defined purpose will begin to change our identity. We will see more of His moving in our lives, our outlook, and perceptions of who we thought we once were. This will be characterized by our deepening relationship with Him.  He is looking for hungry people.  Hungry people draw attention to His favor and anointing.  This is a year of new beginnings, begin yours now.

    I begin each new year with a Detox…

    The detox I’ve used for years is the Lemon Detox.  I have more than enough lemons growing on one tree to last me a couple of years.  I really makes you feel good with energy to spare; great liver cleanse.

    This detox recipe is easy and the ingredients are readily available, but it only gives you the amounts for one glass and I usually drink about a gallon of it in one day. No other food (except coffee which I can’t ignore…busted)!

    Lemon Detox

    • 2 Tablespoons of organic lemon juice
    • 2 Tablespoons of organic, grade A or B maple syrup
    • 1/10th teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper
    • 10 oz. of filtered water.       Stir and enjoy.

    New Beginnings

    I’ve begun new paintings and creative projects, can’t wait to share them with you!  Coming soon!

    This is a partial snapshot of a painting I’m working on, continuing my “Angel” series, done with a pallet knife and finger painting. The big reveal coming.
