It’s time to have a Linky Party! Well, you can say that again! I had to do without you and your wonderful creativity for far too long. Who knew that this emigration would take me over 2 months! It’s almost done!!!! Anyone want a new-to-me home reveal of the 113-year-old beach cottage we are renting?! Well, that can come later.
A new Linky Party
It’s time for a linky party now! Let me start with the features of last party and then open up the stage … FOR YOU and YOUR SUBMISSIONS !!!
It has been a long time since our last party, but I nonetheless what to share 3 highlights of it with you here, of sheer fabulousness brought to you by you/your fellow online artists & artisans.
1. Easy, but Sophisticated: Asparagus Tart Recipe
I did not tell you, because I was too busy (read: having fun shopping in London), but this enticing photo is responsible for a delicious new dinner in my home. And we eat it Sunday brunch too. And for Saturday eve happy hour. …
This asparagus pie, or Asparagus Tart as it was called by maker Parrish, is staying on our family menu! I saw the picture and thought it was a great idea. Typically, Italians dress their asparagus with olive oil and Parmesan cheese. I had these 3 key ingredients in my home. All I needed was some filo pastry. I added a handful of shredded mozzarella cheese as well as two spoonful of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
So easy! I rolled out the pastry, washed and arranged the asparagus, sprinkled it with grated mozzarella and Parmesan, and popped ‘the tart’ into the oven at 180C|350F for a bit over 10 minutes and voila’!
I drizzled it a tiny bit of olive oil over the tart and served for dinner with salad and a glass of chardonnay. So delicious and so sophisticated! Thank you, Parrish, for this greatly inspirational photo! It is a WINNER to me. Parrish used Kraft 5 cheese in hers, so if you prefer that, hop over to her blog for her recipe. So, there. Now you can make 2 (similar) versions of this delicious asparagus pie, tart, pizza.
4. Burlap Heart Card DIY
After all these years, Crystelle is still in love with burlap. See it here: what a great card she created with a piece of scrap sheet music and … yes, …. a burlap heart. Simple but great! You rock, C!
3. Cute Amigurumi Fox :: Free Crochet Pattern
Helena writes her blog in Dutch, which I can translate for you, if need be. But, it’s quite simple. Look for the word ‘HIER’ to go to Helena’s free crochet pattern for this adorable fox, with flexi legs! Love’m. Then, when there, copy/paste the pattern and use Google.com/translate can help you on your way to translate the pattern from Dutch to English. It actually works amazingly well, particularly if you know how to crochet and thus know what to look for.
