I’m the creative force behind Faerie Made; offering artisan soaps, botanical perfumes and natural body care. I am also an avid foodie, locavore, wanna be urban homesteader and have a pack of dogs who make me laugh daily. I am living the life I love and loving the life I live.
I am heading off with my daughter, the faerie muse of Faerie Made and three of our dogs for a summer vacation beach trip next week. It’s my girly girl’s 12th birthday and I want to make it special for her.
My plans are to have all orders out and then suspend shipping of all online and wholesale orders from 7/30 until we return and start back on 8/11.
I’ve got folks on standby to sell at our tailgate markets on 8/2 (both North Asheville Tailgate Market and Asheville City Market) and also at Asheville City Market on 8/9.
I will be offering an incentive for you being patient for retailers on our online store during that time. Not sure yet … a percentage off perhaps? A reduced order amount for free shipping? I’m not sure yet.
I love Huffington Post. They have a bit of everything for everybody.
I came across this link the other day and tons of yummy possibilities for veggie burgers. I’ve made a few good veggie burgers, but I’m not an expert. Mine generally fall apart or taste like blergh. So, I’m excited for more options and recipes.
I’ve made a good lentil one though. I got it off Sparkpeople:
1 cup uncooked lentils
1 cup uncooked brown rice
1-1/2 cups carrots, finely grated
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1-1/2 cups uncooked oatmeal
1 tsp season salt
1 small onion, finely grated
I am meeting with the Wellness Category Manager at Earth Fare to get my line into the two Asheville stores.
It’s time. We all agree. I have customers looking for my products there and we haven’t been in there.
I was contacted last year and didn’t follow through with the paperwork. I was not having a good year last year. Depression brought on by the stress of almost losing my dog
Yes, my dog.
It just reminded me of the house of cards I live in. I still live in this same house, but my dog is alive and healthy. I am alive and healthy too and no longer in the funk I was in. I had to acknowledge my house of cards and make peace with it.
So Earth Fare emailed me again a few months ago. I finally sat down, worked on the paperwork (and it’s a bit daunting!) and so Monday we are meeting and signing it.
So, by mid-August, Faerie Made will be in Earth Fare.
2 c AP flour
2/3 c warm water
1 t fast acting/instant yeast
2 T good olive oil
1 t salt
1 t sugar
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and knead until it’s smooth. Leave it to rest for 30 minutes. When time is up divide dough into 8 parts, then roll them into flat, round shapes. Heat a cast iron pan, brush it with some olive oil and fry each piece on each side for about 30 seconds. Wrap cooked pitas in a towel to keep warm till you serve them.
of course Asheville is on the list. I love living here. It’s gaining in popularity which is a bit daunting. We’ve got more people want to move here and this tiny little valley city is being crowded. I hope we can sustain it.
