Easy Homemade Pickles | A Beautiful Mess
I know what you might be thinking - why would I make pickles when I can just buy them from the store?! Well for one, you will know exactly what is going in these ones - no preservatives in these! Secondly, how cool is it to say to someone ‘would you like a homemade pickle? I made them. From scratch. In my home. Pickles’. Yes, they might start calling you ‘pickle girl’ and avoid you at parties, but I think it’s worth it. Plus (here’s my catchphrase!) they would make awesome gifts, especially for new home owners!

Homemade Mini corn Dogs | A Beautiful Mess
In S.A. we call these Dagwood Dogs. I have no idea why. But you can get them at the Royal Adelaide Show dipped in tomato sauce (ketchup) and they are just the freakin’ best thing. Fair food is the best. Well, actually, it’s the worst for you, but it tastes so good! Wouldn’t these be a great finger food for a party? Oh man I want a Dagwood Dog so badly. When is the show again!?

100 Greatest Cooking Tips (Of All Time) | Food Network
I’ll admit, I rarely cook mainly because cooking for one can feel like too much hassle sometimes. But I do still love to bake and quite a few of these tips are great - and straight from the mouths of some truly brilliant chefs! Some are pretty obvious (If you’re cooking for someone important — whether it’s your boss or a date — never try a new recipe and a new ingredient at the same time) there are some great ones that will hopefully help you out! My favourite is this one: After working with garlic, rub your hands vigorously on your stainless steel sink for 30 seconds before washing them. It will remove the odor. I wonder if this also works for onions because I can never get the smell off of my hands!

Daisy Lollipops | Funkytime
When I was younger my sister and our next door neighbours would pick fetch from the side of the road to eat. Fetch was like a wild pea - it tasted terrible but we loved eating something ‘strange’ that you wouldn’t normally eat! These daisy lollipops make me think of that time. I never knew you could eat daisies! Funkytime also recommends using lavender, pansies or chamomile. Just make sure that what you’re adding to your pops is edible and not sprayed with pesticides (which is the reason why we stopped eating fetch!).

Whoopie Pies | Martha Stewart
You know how you get a real craving for something but you can’t find it at the stores? Well I really want a whoopie pie but the closest thing I can get here is… nothing. You can’t buy them here! So I guess I’m just going to have to make my own. Of course Martha has a great recipe, so I’m hoping my mum who is staying with me this week will make them for me?!

Ukulele Shortbread | Diamonds For Dessert
I think I’d like to learn how to play the ukulele. I love artists like Sophie Madeleine, Ingrid Michaelson, Kate Micucci and Clara Belle. Also I love playing instruments, and I figure the ukulele isn’t too far away from the violin (which I played for eight years!) But until I can convince my Dad to teach me how to play it, I’m going to cook mini ukuleles out of short bread  and listen to youtube videos! Actually… maybe I can cook these and use them to bribe my Dad!…

You might not think so, but I believe Grilled Cheese to be quite an art! And now there’s a website dedicated to and only to this delicious cuisine. Featured here is the Sommerset, ‘Wisconsin Chipotle Jack with green and yellow summer squash complemented by crispy bacon’. Mmmm. Crispy bacon. There are 30 different recipes to try. To get out your sandwich press and get to grillin’!
