Project Cyan is finally undergoing a major website redesign! Please bear with me as I get things sorted out and rearranged.  I'm excited to finally have a place to consolidate  my blogs, my costuming, my website design portfolio, and anything else I feel like putting up.  

I imported all my previous blogs from WordPress, and did quite a bit of customizing on the displays on this site, so I have to go back through the older blog entries and fix the pictures so everything looks consistent. I am sure this is going to take some time! But in the end, it's all so worth it, I love this new site and all of the new features. : )

Crab legs were on sale at the store, and so I picked a package up, but then couldn't decide what to do with them.  I made crab cakes recently, so those were out.  Crab stuffed shrimp is fun, but not quite what I was in the mood for. I wanted to make something different with them, and also wanted an excuse to heat up the fryer.  Finally, I stumpled across a recipe for crab tater tots, which immediately made my mouth water.  The original recipe was made with pate a choux dough, however, and wasn't quite what I was looking for.

I love working with clay, it's such a fun and forgiving medium, and the possibilities are endless. If  you have creativity. Which I don't always. :)  I ordered a handful of how-to books from Maureen Carlson, who is a polymer clay goddess. It is AMAZING how much detail and personality she puts into her figurines. I had always thought the polymer clays were for people who weren't serious about creating art, and Maureen has, through her work, set me straight.

I love when friends post interesting food ideas to my facebook wall. It's almost always something I haven't come across before, or is something I just needed a bit of a push to finally try. In this case,  a recipe for zucchini ricotta fritters was posted.  I had seen other zucchini fritter recipes, some without flour, some in the same manner as a latke, but none with ricotta cheese.  I immediately wanted to try them. Luckily, I was on my way to the market that afternoon, and picked up the things I needed.

I love chicken wings.  They are so versatile, and have the perfect meat - fat - skin ratio.  Plus they are smaller than, say, chicken legs, so you feel like you get to eat a lot more. ; )   I have always been a huge fan of frying them, because I love how crispy they get.  But then I discovered roasting them with their sauce on, which caramalizes and adds a new dimension of flavor.  Then, I got the grill, and have become a grill junkie. EVERYTHING goes on the grill now, even brussels sprouts. And pizza. And Indian flat bread. Mmmmmmm.....  ; )  Wings. Right.

Getting hit on the freeway is one of my huge fears. The speed, the noise, the metal hitting metal at such velocity.  I am trying to blog about my experience, but it's proving to be a little harder emotionally than I thought it would. So I'm just going to put up the pictures and the details of what happened, and leave the processing of it for another day.
