So I have been cooking, and discovered that I enjoy it! I don’t really follow any recipe, I would make up my own whenever I feel inspired – usually just putting things I love together, prepared in a simple way. I have always loved baked or grilled dishes, so cooking with an oven is my go to method. This one here is my newest and most successful one so far.

I came up with this chicken dish to provide a healthy, well balanced meal that is bursting with various flavours that I love: spicy, tangy, zingy, herby, with a hint of sweetness. It might be too strong for some people, so you can reduce some ingredients according to your personal taste. In fact, I can’t tell you exactly the amount of each ingredient I use because I just play it by the ear – or by my taste buds, to be more precise ;). You can prepare the seasoning paste in bulk and store it in an airtight jar in the fridge, ready to use any time. This way, you can prepare your meal very quickly!

You will need an oven for this dish.

Fhung's Garlic Chicken Recipe Layout

This layout is done with Ztampf! Metalese Two Paper Pack and elements from the Holiday Recipe Set.

Fhung’s Garlichicken

INGREDIENTS

Paste à la LF
Minced Garlic
Grated Ginger
Fresh Lemon Juice
Chopped Red Chilli
Palm Sugar
Butter
Salt
Olive Oil

• Chicken Breast Fillet
– skinned, boneless
• Fresh Basil Leaves
• Prosciutto Slices
***
• Potatoes
• Pumpkin
• Broccoli
• Semi-dried Tomatoes

PREPARATIONS

Mix in all the ingredients of the Paste in a jar with wide opening. Stir well until you reach an even blend.

Heat the oven to reach 140ºC/ 284ºF.

Get your roasting pan ready. Brush the surface lightly with olive oil.

Slice the chicken breast from the side, leaving the other side intact. Open it so it lays flat. Apply the paste generously – or to taste, interleaving with prosciutto slices and basil leaves on both sides. Close it. Apply some more paste on top of the closed chicken piece. Do this to each chicken breast piece.

Put into the roasting pan together with the potatoes, pumpkin and broccoli. You may brush them all lightly with the paste. Leave it in the oven until the outer part of the chicken starts to brown a bit. Add in the semi-dried tomatoes. Increase the heat to 180ºC/ 392ºF and leave it until the chicken surface looks deliciously brown. Turn off the oven. Serve.

That’s it! Very simple, isn’t it? I hope you’ll enjoy it! If you tried this out, please share with me :)

My dear brother gifted me an iPhone and two of the apps that I most often use are Hipstamatic and Instagram. They make taking cool looking photos very easy and fun with their arrays of photo edges and filters. This has inspired me to create this set that I named Hipstagramix in homage to the source of the inspiration. Your photos will look instantly hip with Hipstagramix!

This Hipstagramix provides you with 6 photo-edges/frames + 6 photo overlays + 6 drop shadows + a square clipping mask for the photo (9″x9″). Mix and match these elements and you will get a variety of awesome ‘filters’. Combine two or more overlays with two or more borders, you’ll get even more! Play with the opacity levels and layer blending mode – the possibilities are endless! You’ll have fun using this set and you’ll love how it transform your photos!

See how it’s being used in layouts – mostly done with Haunting Pirates and Ghostown Series:

We hear all sorts of sound almost every moment of our waking life – sometimes even when we’re asleep. How does sound affect you? What kind of sounds speak to you the most? What kind of sounds you find unbearable? I found the sound of birds chirping and toddlers chattering to be most delightful – always makes me smile, while sound of people shouting in anger to be very unpleasant. I also enjoy listening to the hum of daily life, the sound of neighborhood – distant and yet close. It is familiar and comforting.

The word ‘Sound’ also has another meaning, which has a positive value as in ‘sound health’, ‘sleeping soundly’, ‘sound argument’, and so on. I wonder how this came to be! Do any of you know?

Now, how is it for you? What kind of sounds you find most pleasing? What kind of sound you find disturbing? What does the word ‘sound’ invoke in you?

All these thoughts came to mind when I picked the word ‘Sound’ from a list of words provided by Tangie as the theme for my contribution for her Art Journal Caravan Parcel #34. It is so inspiring, I had to create these ‘Sound PaperPack‘ to add to it :). Of course, these papers are also versatile to be used with any of Ztampf! kits.

Just take a closer look… The delicate details are truly wonderful even if it’s I who say so :).

See these amazing layouts that the talented Z!Girls have made with them
(Notes: Items from Parcel #34 Art Journal Caravan at Studio Tangie are used in most of the layouts featured here. The rest are from various other Ztampf! kits):
