Quick and Easy Crab Puffs – Gluten Free

These puffs were ready in twenty minutes and oh so good.  I used pre made gluten free pie crust.  Since this was my first time making crab puffs, I used small portions.  I used three tablespoons of claw crab meat, olive oil, minced garlic, almond milk, old bay seasoning, and parmesan cheese.

The first thing I did was saute the minced garlic in olive oil.  Then I added the crab meat and old bay seasoning.

Next I added just enough almond milk to create a creamy consistency and began to fold in cheese.

Lastly,  I spooned the mixture in to the  pie dough and baked for 15 minutes at 350.  I didn’t bother with neat pieces as this go around I was more concerned with taste than presentation.

Dip Dye and Ombre – Here to Stay

I’ll be the first to admit I was not impressed with ombre hair.  Society has a habit of turning neglect into “style.”  Someone neglects their dye job and it becomes trend…Perhaps I’m I bit contradictory.   I know style often comes from a place of unintention but I’m not quite on board with neglect.

On the other hand, I am all for dip dyed and ombre clothing.  I started off with Sold denim a while back.  Over a year has passed and these still remain my favorite.  I’m not alone as most denim designers offer ombre denim.

These days you can get nearly every article of clothing in this blended color trend.  I’ve seen everything from lingerie to sweat shirts.  The best thing about this trend is it’s for everyone.  Men, women, and children can all pull this off.  Here are some of my favorites.

 

 

Wicker, Rattan, and Cork Oh My!

I enjoy occasional flash just as much as the next person.  However, my sights are currently set on the natural.  There is no shortage of natural textures when it comes to handbags.  The best thing about these bags is they go well with everything.  If you want to be more daring, dyed fabrics are available as well.

Here are some of my favorite styles in natural materials.

On top of being stylish, these bags are sturdy and light weight.  It truly doesn’t matter whether you choose a clutch, a tote, or a hobo.  Just chose natural this summer.  You can’t lose.

Prom Dress for Less

Does thinking about the cost of a dress for this Prom season bring you anxiety?  Juniors and Seniors are riddled with fees throughout the year with Prom being one of the most costly.  Consider this though, you do not have to break the bank on a prom dress.  Instead shift your attention to accessories.

The right accessories can turn the most casual dress formal.  There are several directions to take.  I would suggest getting a solid dress with your favorite detail.  This could be a sweetheart neckline or a scalloped hem.  It may seem too simple at first but you’ll be amazed at what the right accessory will do.

These chandelier earrings are stylish and elegant.
