Recipe: Luna’s Chili

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

My kiddos and I love this chili, a lot. XD If you haven’t tried it, do get some Penzeys Regular Chili Powder. It’s.So.Goood. This will be on the menu soon. It’s good right away, but I like to let it sit overnight so the flavors all meld together. I haven’t tried making this in the crockpot yet, but it’s something I plan on doing.

Luna’s Chili

From TOXiD-LOTUS.NET | Main Dishes | Mexican

My kiddos and mom love this chili. I love alot of flavour as I said before, so I use alot of chili seasoning.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground Turkey
  • 2 green Bell Peppers, chopped
  • ½ Sweet Onion, chopped
  • 2-28 oz cans diced Tomatoes
  • 2-15 oz cans petite diced Tomatoes
  • 27 oz can Kidney Beans
  • 15 oz can Black Beans
  • 15 oz can Pinto Beans
  • 15 oz can Garbanzo Beans
  • 27 oz Water
  • 2.5 oz jar chili seasoning
  • 1-2 jalopenos, chopped – optional

Directions

  1. Cook up the ground turkey in a skillet, sprinkle a little bit of the chili seasoning on it.
  2. While that is cooking you can begin adding your tomatoes, onion, bell peppers, and beans to your pot!
  3. Save the 27 oz can to add one can of water to the pot.
  4. Once the turkey is done cooking, add it to the pot.
  5. Now the fun part. I like alot of flavour as I said before, so I use alot of the chili seasoning, especially with such a large amount of chili. I use pretty much almost all of the 2.5 oz jar of chili seasoning. There’s maybe ½ an inch left at the bottom.
  6. I cook this on med to med-high heat, about a 6 for those with numbers on the dials, for about 30 min, then I turn the heat down to lowish or in between 3-4 for about 2-3 hours.
  7. After about 2-3 hours, I take it off the heat, let it cool then put it in the fridge overnight.

Tips

  • This can also be made without meat and is just as delicious! I always use Penzey’s Original Chili Seasoning. I like my chili spicy, but no one else does. So I tend to set some aside and add jalopeno to it.

Recipe: Luna’s Waffles of Awesome

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

So my kids LOVE these waffles. Sascha says they’re the best waffles in the world. He says they are my waffles of awesome. XD I have tried many waffle recipes and none taste like these!

Luna’s Waffles of Awesome

From TOXiD-LOTUS.NET | Breakfast and Brunch | American

These are seriously yummy waffles. I was using a recipe previously that used oil instead of butter and didn’t whip the eggs. It made waffles so dense it was crazy. These are light and crisp on the outside. Soooo tasty. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Recipe: Butterfly Chicken

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

I found some of the recipes that I had added to my recipe blog, which no longer exists! Ha. I shall be making this next week. It’s very yummy.

Butterfly Chicken

From TOXiD-LOTUS.NET | Main Dishes | American

Credit to this goes to Jamie, Kai’s mom. She showed me how to do this when Fumiko was born. SO delish. Om nom nom. You can change the seasonings up a bit, but everyone loves this combination so that is what I always use. We eat it over Japanese rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken
  • ¼ cube butter, softened
  • garlic salt*
  • paprika
  • salt seasoning blend such as mrs. dash
  • smoked spanish paprika

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 420°.
  2. Cover your baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. So what you want to do is take some heavy kitchen sheers and cut the spine out of the chicken. Rinse it off and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Now you want to take part of your butter and rub it all over the under side of the chicken.
  5. Now sprinkle your seasonings on liberally. I like to sprinkle on the mrs. dash, smoked spanish paprika, paprika and garlic salt in that order.
  6. Now you want to lay your chicken on the baking sheet with the seasoned under side down.
  7. Now you can butter and season the other side of the chicken. See the picture below on how it should be layed out on the baking sheet.
  8. Bake miss chicken for 1 hour at 420°.

Review: Purplecat Creatives Soap Whips

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

purchased by me

So at the end of May I made a little order from Purplecat Creatives for a couple of their soap whips! I got two in Queen of Hearts and Scintillating. Here is my little review. If I had money I would have bought Queen of Hearts ALL THE THINGS, cause ohmygod it is amazing. T.T

Official description
Our Soap Whips have delightful texture and lather, showcasing luxurious fragrances for an absolute bathtime treat.
Queen of Hearts – Blooming roses (which might have been painted red, who can say?) balanced with passionfruit jam tarts (I might have stolen one) woven together with the barest hint of vanilla flower.
Scintillating – Champagne bubbles, crystallized ginger and cardamom balanced with golden notes of amber.

Where to buy
From Purplecat Creatives website – 4 ounce jar for $7.00 USD or 8 ounce jar for $13.00.
From Etsy – 4 ounce jar for $7.00 USD or 8 ounce jar for $13.00. Shipping is calculated by the items in your basket.

Directions
Scoop out a dollop on a washcloth, bath poof or just use your hands. Lather up and enjoy!

Packaging
Product comes in a standard amber color plastic jar with a black screw on lid. Label is tan and black with a steampunk theme. The label is not waterproof and got all messed up after a few uses.

Scent and formula
Queen of Hearts is a passionfruit rose scent. So awesome. It’s not a foodie scent, I didn’t get a feel of tarts, just passionfruits. The vanilla is barely there for me. I was hoping Scintillating would smell more of cardammom, but I didn’t get much of it. It’s more of a fresh baked yummy smelling thing. XD I’m not good at describing scents. The formula in the jar is rather thick and slightly hard. It’s easy to scoop out. The lather is rich and velvety and it bubbles up quite well, especially when used with a bath poof!

Ingredients
Water, Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sorbitol, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Sodium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Tetrasodium EDTA, sweet almond oil, fragrance. VEGAN

I love, love, love these soap whips. Queen of Hearts is my favorite scent but it’s no longer available. Yay Queen of Hearts has been added to the core line! T.T I’ve used these since the end of may and I have only gone through half of each jar. It doesn’t take much at all to get a lot of foam on a bath poof. These clean extremely well without drying out my already super dry skin. The scent barely lingers after you’ve washed off and disappears within the hour. I’ve had no skin reactions to these, which is amazing. I would highly recommend trying these soap whips. They’re available in lots of scents and there is also a mega jar size!

Do you think you’ll try these out? Have you tried any of these Soap Whips? What did you think? You can find lots of bath and body stuff from Purplecat Creatives, even artsy things! Eventually I’d like to pick up some more soap whips, some body butter and perhaps some solid perfume!

You can find Purplecat Creatives on their website here, or on Etsy here. You can find them on Facebook here and Twitter here. You can contact TDawn on her contact page here or through Etsy contact here.

I love Europa and Anything Goes. It’s too bad Anything Goes is discontinued. :( I should have purchased a full size when it was available. Ah well. Teenage Kicks is also gorgeous and makes an awesome liner. I accidentally dumped my little jar of Artificial Sweetener when I was putting the lid back on. T.T It too is discontinued. Boo. I don’t normally go for glitter but I saw Elise and had to have it. After getting Zero I fell in love and definitely want to puck up a full size in the future

My skin has been acting wonky, so I haven’t been using any bb creams! I am grateful my skin is doing better overall. Fumiko’s Mamu and Ojiisa got the kiddos school shoes and clothes! Now to wait for them to arrive. :D Fumiko and Sascha also skyped with her Mamu the other day. It’s been a looong time. Jamie(Mamu) told Kai that the kiddos were doing good and skyped with them and got them school stuff. So he emailed me and wanted to pick the kids up today and spend time with them. The kids wanted me to go so we all went to Target. Kiddos got some toys and the rest of the school supplies they needed. Then walked around the mall for a bit waiting for Olive Garden to open. He got us lunch at Olive Garden, which was good and it’s also been a looong time since I’ve been there. Then we went to the park and went down some trails, then came home. It was nice and civil. I was worried. But all went well. Hopefully this will be a good beginning and things will remain okay. He wants to see the kids again next week. We shall see what happens. I am very tired now and my heart is doing a tap dance. D: Stupid tachycardia. I must now edit photos. Wee.
