etched bottle

I can’t believe how well etchall etches the smallest details. I am making a shaker jar for popcorn seasoning and I etched the wording onto the glass. The word popcorn has the first “o” replaced with a piece of popcorn that has the smallest outline and it etched perfectly!

cricut joy

When cutting smaller pieces of vinyl, I like to use my Cricut Joy. It can sit right on my craft table. While the vinyl is cutting, clean the glass jar with rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or grease.

If you would like to use the SVG I created, it is available for free in the store [popcorn seasoning]

transfer tape

After weeding away the type, I applied transfer tape and burnished it down well with my thumb. Be extra careful of all the small pieces. The full size of the image is only 2″ across so those letter centers and the dot on the i are very small.

ready to etch

The jar is ready to etch. I like using inexpensive paint brushes to apply the etchall creme. I apply the creme and set a timer for 15 minutes. That’s all it takes to etch the glass.

remove vinyl

After the 15 minutes pass, I remove the etchall creme and return it to its container because it is reusable. For small projects like this, I just clean off any remaining creme with a baby wipe. In the image above I am removing the vinyl. After all the vinyl is removed and discarded, I once again clean the etching with a baby wipe and then follow up with rubbing alcohol. I find burnishing the etched image with a dry cloth really enhances the image.

The popcorn seasoning is a homemade mixture, it’s sweet n salty. The ingredient measurements below are perfect for filling this bottle.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp of sugar
  • 2 Tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt

Mix it well and place it into the bottle.

with popcorn

After making microwave air-popped popcorn, I pour a bit of melted butter and finish off with the popcorn seasoning.

This would make such a cute and easy gift. Combine the seasoning jar with some Amish popcorn kernels and a cute bowl. I bet anyone would appreciate this delicious gift.

Lemon Muddy Buddies with Just Jan’s

A fun summertime recipe using lemon curd. @justjans @tryazon #sponsored

A favorite Summertime Recipe
 

Lemon is such a great flavor for spring and summer. There is so much you can do with the flavor, but lemon screams desserts to me. I was invited to participate in a home party for¬†Just Jan’s. One of the offerings was Lemon Curd. I remembered a recipe I had tried for a lemon version of Muddy Buddies, so I knew exactly what I was going to make. I had the opportunity to share them with a group of ladies from KDP, a philanthropic sorority. Thankfully, we were having our yearly luncheon to benefit the local food pantry. I made and brought the snack to share with these wonderful ladies who spend their time volunteering in our community.

Bug-Off Roll-On Recipe

Just in time for summer, make this Bug-off essential oils roll-on with Simply Earth. @fromsimplyearth #simplyearth #affiliate

Just in time for the warmer weather and unfortunately bug season, I am making a Bug Off recipe from Simply Earth. This recipe is quick and easy to make. I like that you apply the oil to your pulse points instead of spraying your entire body with nasty smelling bug spray. I am a big fan of the Lemongrass scent. Citronella is a calming scent and will lighten your mood along with deterring the bugs.

Everything I needed to make this recipe was provided by Simply Earth. The Coconut Oil and roll-on bottle came in my Big Bonus Box included for free with my first subscription order. The oils, recipe card, and labels were all included in the June Recipe Box.

Ice Box Cake Recipe

Our families special occasion cake recipe.

This Ice Box Cake recipe is one I grew up eating on special occasions. It still brings joy at family gatherings. The recipe consists of simple ingredients and is very easy to make. Two parts to the recipe make or break it. The first, you need time for it to sit. The second, you need a specific kind of chocolate cookies (and they can be difficult to find).

Ingredients:

2 pints of whipping cream
powdered sugar
nabisco chocolate wafers

Directions:

Using 1 pint of cream, whip until peaks are formed. To this add powdered sugar to taste (I like mine sweet – usually /2 to 1 cup). Fold the sugar into the whipped cream. Use a cookie to scoop up some whipped cream and then sandwich it together with another cooking and stand them on end together. Continue to do this until you run out of cookies or whip cream. Do not use the broken cookies (save them for decoration). Now, refrigerate the “cake” overnight is best. The cookies need to soften from being married with the whipped cream.

The next day, make another batch of whipped cream, again adding powdered sugar to taste. Ice the outside of the cake with the whip cream. You probably will not use up all this whip cream. You can keep it to add to your coffee for a special treat.  

Decorate the top of the cake with cookie crumbs. I take two broken pieces and rub them together over the top of the cake and make a dusting. We have also used chocolate sprinkles and or cherries, letting the juice run down the sides of the cake. 

This cake tastes good no matter how you serve it but to really impress, slice the cake at an angle making a striped slice – so easy but very impressive.
