Chilli, Mirin & Honey Prawns Recipe

HELLO BEAUTIES! LET’S PUT SHAPES, COLOURS AND ACHIEVE A WONDERFUL COMPOSITION LIKE THIS.

My boyfriend, Joel, and I are very competitive and he decided to cook me a surprise 3 course meal as he knows food is the way to my heart! Somewhat nervous, he sculpted a menu including all of favourite ingredients, including prawns. This is all well and good, but now I have a target to beat (I know, I can’t just be happy with what I have…).

I love to have a starter when eating out, but hate when I’m so full from the starter than I just cannot stomach a main course (I say “I” as if this is a problem for me, it’s not, but I sympathise with others, ha). These prawns are a great idea for a light and fresh starter or even a light lunch!

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 150g Cooked King Prawns (if using frozen pre-cooked, defrost thoroughly!)
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1…

The Junior Artist at work

👦THE LITTLE OBSERVER. ONLY A FEW LINES ARE ENOUGH IF YOU PREVIEWED THE EXPRESSION IN YOUR MIND BEFORE YOU SKETCH.

Elizabeth Longwill

More pictures of Clara, tricky to sketch her as she usually grabs my pencil and paper to do her own drawing “Mamma Mine” but I get a few seconds while she is distracted or looking out of the window. I’m getting quicker at sketching anyway and she hadn’t discovered drawing on the walls ……yet.

Women | Words and Art I

💪 HI SISTERS, DON’T FORGET OUR PRIDE!

Pics and Posts

Did you see the Google Doodle on International Women’s Day? The doodle featured a collection of inspiring quotes by women beautifully illustrated by [other] women. It’s a pretty impressive collection, and I want the prints!

Fortunately, my bestie–from now on referred to as “the prophet”–anticipated this and sent me a beautiful collection of 12 woman-centered postcards. I finally took time to scan them, so I decided to share them on the blog in three installments.

I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own. And I am not free as long as one person of Color remains chained. Nor is anyone of you. –Audre Lorde, “The Uses of Anger,” National Women’s Studies Association Conference, 1981

Artist: Daiana Ruiz

Many of us recall when #45 described his opponent, Hillary Clinton, as a nasty woman. He intended it…

Day 19 – Obi-wan

🐶💙 WELL BEAUTIES! WHEN WE’RE BLUE, PETS CAN SOAK UP OUR SADNESS.

Amy J. Yun Art

A quick sketch of Obi while he was deep in thought looking out the window. I grabbed my nearest notebook, which is a planner with a few notes pages at the back, and I used the fountain pen I’d been writing with. It had water soluble ink, so afterwards I took a brush pen and lightly wet it down. Doing this drawing made me realize how chubby he is starting to get!

Karma & How to Remove Oil Paint from Cat Paws

🐾🐾 WELL DEARS! 😻 WE LEAVE OUR FOOTPRINTS IN YOUR LIVES AND WE’RE SO GLAD 💛💙💜💚❤

Jana Bouc, Artist

Ink & watercolor in handmade sketchbook

This evening Busby, my tabby cat, walked across four freshly oil-paint primed panels on my work table, each footstep lifting the paint right off the panel. There were painted footprints across the table, on a chair and along the floor leading to his usual hiding spot in the corner of my closet. He was curled up for a nap, his paws covered in paint.

Since cats lick their paws so you can’t use anything toxic (and fortunately the paint he stepped in wasn’t toxic–Titanium white). I found a solution that worked. (Disclaimer: I haven’t checked this with a veterinarian):

  1. Use canola, olive or other vegetable oil on the paws like a soap to moisten and loosen the paint.
  2. Rub paws and fur around them with paper towels to remove the paint.
  3. Put dish soap on a cloth and get it wet and sudsy and…
