Beet Cured Salmon Recipe

🌊⛵HELLO DEARS! IT’S TIME FOR THIS “DELICATESSEN”. HAPPY MEAL !

Lauren Charman

This jewel pink beet cured salmon is surprisingly easy (promise!) and perfect for  entertaining. It makes a great appetizer for parties and you can serve the leftovers on cream cheese smothered bagels at brunch.

This recipe requires 24-48 hours curing time but can last for almost a week after curing, when made with fresh salmon and freezes well. 

Ingredients:

1 side fresh salmon, 1.5 to 2 lbs, skin on or off, pin bones removed (wild sockeye salmon is a great option but this will work with any salmon, or try arctic char)

Curing mixture:

Scant 1/4 cup sea salt (non-iodized)

1/4 cup maple syrup

Approximately 1 cup beet puree (from 1 bunch of beets) OR 2-3 grated raw beets

1/4 bunch of roughly chopped dill

1 teaspoon toasted fennel seeds

2 teaspoons toasted coriander seeds

5 crushed juniper berries

* Optional: You can also add aquavit or brandy to the mixture for a…

Nixie Briefs

🌱🐰🐰🌱 HI SISTERS! LET’S GIVE A FUNNY TOUCH WITH THIS STYLISH AND GENUINE PRINTS FOR KNICKERS.THANK YOU JENNIFER.

Thimble & Threads

I got the pattern for the Nixie Briefs from Jennifer Lauren Handmade back in April but it wasn’t until last weekend that I sewed my first pair. I figured that all my jersey scraps would make an excellent underwear collection.

I’m in-between size 10 and 12 and wasn’t sure which would be a better fit. So last weekend, using the leftover yellow/cream stripe organic interlock I used a few years ago for a top, I made a size 12 (accurate for my waist measurements, but big for my hip measurements). They looked great but after a day of wear felt a tad too loose for comfort. Then mid week, with this fantastic acorn print I made my BFF a top out of, I tried the size 10 and it feels much less precarious.

So this weekend I set out to use up all my scraps (perhaps that was over ambitious)…

More Paste Papers

💮🔘💠WELL BEAUTIES, IT DOESN’T MATTER: PAPERS, CANVAS OR CLOTHES ALL THESE STUFF ARE READY FOR GOOD ABSTRACT MOTIFS. MANY THANKS TO WENDY.

THREADBORNE

January and February have passed with me learning about paste papers. I am really quite interested in the varied applications of this genre – historical, contemporary, practical and just plain fun to do! I came upon paste papers as a medium because I have temporarily had to give up the exacting work of cutting and folding papers for bookarts. I was looking for a way to work on my art while suffering severe bursitis (threat of frozen shoulder) with muscle impingement in my Sword, Pen, Needle and Brush etc. arm…only a range of motion of about 12″ across my work bench and no cutting of paper…oy.  So welcome paste papers. (I think it might become an addiction, dear Reader…you should see my stash…)

I reported last month on various experimental papers I  made using corn starch paste and methyl cellulose paste as paint carriers. This month I was also into…

More of the arabian aesthetic. I drew this using pastels on a black sheet of paper. I was totally inspired by disney movies’ concept art where they used this technique.

This is my favourite so far! It is the third piece of this artwork series, partly inspired by the amazing animation of the film ‘Azur et Asmar’!

That’s all for today! Stay tuned for many many more! I plan on finishing a short comic next week, so the next posts are going to be pretty interesting!

Did you like the pastel technique? Want to see more of it? Tell me in the comments!

new painting } the eves and thilo

HELLO LOVELIES ! I ALWAYS LOVED THE MULTIPLE PORTRAITS LIKE THIS LARGE WORK THAT I COPIED SOME YEARS AGO AFTER REMBRANDT

tate30 The Eves & Thilo, 2016, acrylic on canvas, 150 x 240 cm

I finished this painting around ten days ago, and instead of photographing myself with it as I usually do with my finished paintings, I wanted to share that fun with a few of the special women in my life. Thanks to my sister Yasmine for thinking about asking her colleague photographer Thilo Mayer to take the pictures, which he so generously did. It was so spontaneous, and what was going to be an afternoon of fun with my girlfriends turned into an afternoon of fun with my girlfriends and Thilo! Oh, and Eve, who is currently staying with Fatma Bodoma, but I’ll leave that for another post.
