NQR Comfort Food and Homemade Marshmallows

When people talk about dieting, I run the other way. Literally, walking is my favorite food! I could eat it all day, every day of the week! Don't talk to me about dieting! Talk to me about getting in shape and feeling good! Good health is a rare commodity these days. We just need to get our hearts pumping, our breathing faster, and a little sweat worked up. EVERY DAY!!!

Meanwhile, in the kitchen, I cooked up some comfort food---some really really really good comfort food---Homemade Marshmallows! One of my daughters sent me a link to a website called Pinterest and the first time I went there, there was this recipe for homemade marshmallows. I immediately wrote down the recipe---YES! I WROTE it down on a card, and put it in my recipe cabinet. Yesterday I felt a chill in the air, that first one of the season, and a forecast for frost this week. I saw Starbucks gourmet hot chocolate mixes at Costco, and guess I needed to make some marshmallows. Here is the link to my Picasa album with photos, step by step of how I did it.

Also, here is a link to an online video that is more professionally done than my little effort.

So, next time you get the notion in your head that you need to "lose weight", go for a walk and make some homemade marshmallows! Can't have one without the other!

I am Bonnie Russell, owner and quilter, and my business is making beautiful quilts and making quilts beautiful. NABQC came about as a partnership between the love of sewing and hazelnut farming. That's how the name was chosen. My husband, Fred, is the nut farmer, and I do the sewing using many bolts of fabulous fabric. My studio is located in Dundee, Oregon, the beautiful Willamette Valley, in the center of a hazelnut orchard. Experience came with 42 years of dress making, 40 years of marriage to my wonderful, loving, supportive husband (34 years of nut farming), 25 years of raising three daughters, and now we have seven grandchildren to mentor in Future Quilters of America!

With a Statler Stitcher and Gammill Optimum Plus longarm quilting machine, a 14 foot table, and the drawing program AutoSketch, no project is too big or too small. Anything from hand guided meandering to custom digitized designs can be applied to a project to complete that labor of love.
