Day 164: Happy Thanksgiving!!

25 Nov

Hello everyone!

Today is Thanksgiving (in America, that is)… where we celebrate sharing by eating a ton of really-bad-for-you foods. Turkey, Cranberry Sauce, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing… the works!

So in honor of this gracious turkey day, I wanted to post the recipe for the most amazing turkey I’ve ever had!

(curtious of What’s Gaby Cooking)

Roasted Turkey Breast

This is the picture from the site



1 turkey breast, bone-in, about 5 to 7 pounds, skin on.
16 cups ice cold water
1 1/4 cups kosher salt
1/2 cup light brown sugar


3 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
1 tbsp rosemary leaves, chopped
1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon black pepper, crushed
2 tbsp Sea salt


Place turkey breast in a large zip lock bag; place in a large roasting pan or other large container (just in case the bag leaks). Add the salt and brown sugar to the bag, and then close the bag and seal. Place in the refrigerator for 12 hours or overnight.

Heat oven to 325°.

Remove turkey from brine and pat dry. Discard brine.  Place on a rack, breast side up, in a large roasting pan. Rub the turkey with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper, along all other herbs and garlic. Make sure to rub it over and under the skin. Place a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the breast, not touching bone. Roast at 325° for about 2 hours until turkey breast registers 165-170°.
Serves 8 to 10.

Day 46: Cake Spy

5 Jul

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

So today I bring you one of my favorite Seattle artists! Her name is Jessie Oleson, and she is responsible for the most adorable cupcake drawings ever.

She has done work for tons of magazines, companies, and (more recently) festivals! But she is also in charge of a website called “Cake Spy,” where people review bakeries, cupcakes, and recipes, as well as perform “experiments” in the field of baking. It is friendly, amazing, and just adorable to look at!

Click the picture below to check out their website! It makes me so hungry that I can’t look at it too long!!

Also, check out her artwork at the URBAN CRAFT UPRISING (this saturday and sunday at the Seattle Center! There will be more information on this thing tomorrow :))
