Cozy Apple #2

Experimenting: two different yarns, similar colors, a bit narrower on top.
Size: XL. I had to take the biggest apple of the basket.
Happy sunday!

Experimentando: dos lanas diferentes, de colores similares. La parte de arriba un poco más estrecha.
Tamaño XL. Tuve que usar la manzana más grande de la cesta.
Muy "girlie" ;)
Feliz domingo!

I never had pancakes in my life, you know, the fluffy, spongy, soft ones (often seen on the movies!), and some of my friends were freaking out about it. What´s the deal!? haha... I´m not a very "kitchen" person, but checked out a few webs (there´s nothing Google cannot find) till found an easy recipe that didn´t sound too pretentious.
For those who never prepared pancakes before and feel a bit curious -just like me- here is the recipe. Just mix all the ingredients together and put some butter or vegetable oil in the pan. Once the pan is hot enough put the desired amount of batter inside and turn around when the bubbles are coming up.

- 1 egg (beaten)
- 3/4 cup of milk
- 2 tablespoons of melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

How would it taste if I include a spoon of cinnamon? next time I will definitely try that out ;)

Nunca comí tortitas en mi vida, ya saben, esas que son esponjosas, suavecitas, blanditas (que salen en las peliculas) y mis amigos no me creian... "Cual es el problema?". No soy una persona muy "cocinera", pero consulté unas cuantas páginas (Google lo encuentra todo) y dí con una receta muy simple y nada pretensiosa.
Para todos aquellos que nunca las probaron y sienten un poco de curiosidad -como yo- aquí dejo la receta. Sólo se trata de mezclar todos los ingredientes, a la vez que se calienta la sartén con un poco de manteca o aceite vegetal. Una vez la sartén está suficientemente caliente simplemente se echa la cantidad deseada de mezcla hasta que empiecen a subir las burbujas, que será cuando habrá que darlas vuelta.

-1 huevo batido
- 3/4 taza de leche
- 2 cucharadas de manteca derretida
- 1 cucharadita de esencia de vainilla (en polvo o liquida)
- 1 taza de harina
- 1 cucharada de azucar
- 3 cucharaditas de polvo para hornear
- 1/2 cucharadita de sal

La próxima vez intentaré incluir también una cucharadita de canela. Suerte!

where ´s the apple?

Yesterday I stayed browsing blogs untill late (VERY late) but that´s not a surprise. Everytime I start doing it I cannot stop: one cool blog directs you to another one that is way too cute to stop looking. Between all the amazing things I found I discovered the "apple cozy". "WHAT IS THAT FOR?, DO APPLES GET COLDS OR WHAT?", asked myself. Well, obviously no, but how many times I threw my apple inside my bag before work and found it full of bruises afterwards?


Found a pattern online and went for it... it took me a bit, but finally came with a decent result. At least for a first try is not THAT bad... :P

what do you think of the "apple cozy"?
do you know any other way of keeping your apples safe from evil keys/books/phone inside your bag?
