2 Vid's and a Recipe

I did 2 quick video's today. I didn't get to work on my mini as hubby and I did some more running around.
Video 22 & 23 of 31 days of video's

And video #2 for the day.

Onto my day:

Heather and I had to make this again. I didn't have any lemon's left so we decided to make it with oranges instead. Let me tell you, this was even better than yesterday's.
We could have ate the whole thing by ourselves, but because there are other's in the family, we called them to come to have a piece.
It wasn't our fault they couldn't hear our whispers, teehee. Here is the recipe.
How lazy am I ;)Preheat oven to 350C. Brush some melted butter on a large bowl or pie dish. Mix butter, sugar, egg yolks and rind until creamy.
Sift flour into bowl, until just combined.
Then add juice and milk.
Beat egg whites until, firm peaks form. (in a separate bowl)
Fold egg whites into mixture until just combined.
Pour mixture into your Pie dish.
Place the dish into a water bath... a large baking dish, with water in it, about one third up the side of the dish.
Bake for 1 hour.
Sprinkle icing sugar when done, and eat it all up right away :)

Oh ya to make your own rising flour...
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt.
mix it all together. You will have lots left over to make another one ;)

Kristy had an exam today. It is the end of their semester, so exams this week. She is doing very well so I don't see any problems. She doesn't have an exam tomorrow, so hubby and I are going to take her out for lunch. Montana's here we come :)

Proud Tuesday: Well this should be what have I done today to make me feel un proud. Like eating Kraft dinner after 9:00 pm. Drinking my fill of pop. Eating almost 1/2 of a dessert. Not getting on my treadmill this week and most of last. Yup I suck.

I am proud that I am keeping up with my video's. Plus I mailed out a parcel ;)

So what have you done today to make you feel proud?

Hope you had a creative Tuesday :)



  1. Naughty girl, not sharing any of that pie!

    On my way to bed, so afraid I don't have time to see the videos...but I'm sure there's some great stuff in there, as always!

    Have fun at Montana's tomorrow!

  2. I thought that said Ceasar sugar and I was so baffled. I love xyrons and modge pod (recently learned about that). Where did you get the sanding thingy?

  3. I love your videos! Ugh, it seems like you're always showing something sweet in your posts - and I'm on a low carb-diet! Oh, no! I want some of that cake! Why are you doing this to me? LOL! ;D

  4. great videos once again!!

    thanks for the recipe. I might have to make this one for the hubby or ummm me!!!!

  5. Tracy,
    Great videos. I have the same exacto knife (hubby though it would be easier). I hold it the same way you do...LOL
    Thanks for sharing the recipe, I am going to try it this weekend.

  6. Thanks for the recipe! After I weigh in at Weight Watchers today, maybe I'll make one and split it with my husband! I have a whole week to recover...

  7. I can't see your videos! Thanks for the recipe though, my Weight Watcher instructer and I both say thank you! Ha!

  8. Another 2 great videos, I learned a lot too! especially about the closure!!! thanks, that pie I would love some... but the sugar.... drat and double drat, maybe I could just have the teeniest of pieces?

  9. Thanks for the videos and recipe! YUMZ!

  10. OK Tracy
    You are such an enabler!! thanks for the recipe (my mom used to make this one a lot) and I had forgotten about it. It is yummy.
    Thanks for the videos.

  11. Tracy
    Busy lady that you are if you can find the time to pop over to my blog I have something for you.

  12. Awesome videos today. I'm blown away by the second one and how you came up with the cover for that coin envelope album!!! So awesome! Hope Kristy did well on her exams! :)

  13. I loved your cover video! I've never thought about making a cover like that, to close up a mini. But now my head is spinning. Such a cool idea. Thanks for the how-to!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
