a little sneak peek

Last weekend I did a little photoshoot/dinner party for a project I've been working on called "mumstheword". Its a mother-daughter collaboration of knitwear. My mum (yeah we're british) hand knits beautiful headbands and scarves, to which I have added removable pins made from leather, feathers, chains and other novel fun things! I am currently setting up my account on Etsy, where they will soon be available fo sale. Also part of the proceeds of all sales will be donated to Colon Cancer Canada. So here's a little sneak peek, along with some recipes from our dinner party!

Sarah Jane used her pro makeup skills.

This is some of the knitwear that will be sold on Etsy. Thank you ladies for your beautiful modeling skills.


We had a nice little dinner

Here are some recipes from dinner:
(all using non-precise measurements, and open to adding substitute ingredients...don't be afraid, just relax and experiment a little!)

Veggie Burgers!
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1/2 a can of lentils
  • 2 cloves of garlic- minced
  • red onions - chopped
  • chopped up portobello mushrooms
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • cumin
  • cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 or 2 eggs
  • flour

mash up the beans/chickpeas/lentils and and in all of the other ingredients. Add enough flour so that everything is bound together. Get a cookie sheet and lightly sprinkle some olive oil onto it. Make the mixture into hamburger shaped patties on the cookie sheet and bake in the oven at 400 for around 20-25 minutes, flipping half way through.

Serve with your favourite toppings. We put Guacamole on ours, so here's that recipe!


I like a big huge bowl of guacamole so, i always use like 4-5 avocados.
Just chop up some garlic, some red onions and a little bit of tomatoes, splash some lime juice, salt and pepper, and fresh cilantro (I love it..but some people hate it so beware!)

These is one of the Salads we had:

Endive/Mango Salad
  • 1 Mango -just ripe
  • 1 Endive
  • Red Pepper
  • Sesame Seeds -toasted
  • Lime Juice
  • Sesame oil
  • honey
  • Soy sauce
  • Fish Sauce
Julienne all of the fruit/vegetables. Throw in the sesame seeds. mix together equal parts soy sauce and lime juice...add honey to taste and just add a drop of sesame oil and fish sauce. Toss the salad together. This would also be really good with cucumber added and shrimp.
