2010 Calendar Roundup #1.

There are sooo many great calendars floating around for 2010 that I had to break my yearly roundup down into four parts! I’ll be posting a huge selection starting now and ending Friday.

A perpetual gardening calendar for southern California – for each month there are two lists: planting recommendations and what is in season at the market. Each month also has a linoleum block print of a seasonal fruit or vegetable.

The days of the month have space for notes–either for recording what you’ve planted, harvested or bought that month (I imagined one might keep a planting/harvesting record) OR for using as a birthday calendar. The calendar is not year-specific, so you can keep using it for years to come.

Letterpress printed in three colors on heavyweight 100% PCW recycled card stock and wire-bound with a metal hanger. 5 1/2″ w x 8 1/2″ t.

Eco-friendly sustainably harvested yellow birch wood. Wood is sliced thin from a small amount of raw material & uses no water & very little power. Wood grain varies from month to month. 6 flat wooden cards printed both sides. Clear display case. Landscape size: 7 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. {Also check out their 2010 Critter Calendar.}

This colorful calendar has been printed on smooth white 110# cardstock. Each month’s card has its own fun print and measures approx. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Calendar includes one set of 1 x 1 inch wooden cube stands. Each stand can hold approx. 6 months at a time.

This calendar comes in both small and large. The large version of the calendar measures 8.5×14″ and features a vibrant and unique patterns, all created by me, a different one for each month. The small version measures 5.5×8.5″. Both are printed on white matte cover stock with vibrant Canon inks, held together with a shiny silver book ring at the top. {Also check out her ‘make your year abundant’ calendar!}

The panel is printed on 100% cotton fabric and arrives pre-washed. The finished size is approximately 14 x 20 inches depending on how you finish your edges. The panel itself is slightly larger than that to accommodate any finishing you choose to do. These panels can be embellished in so many ways: embroidery, silk screen, fabric paints, fabric collage, whatever you can imagine. Do you need to have a sewing machine to make this calendar? – nope. A small booklet is included with each order outlining ideas for creating and for finishing your calendar. {Check out a few other of their calendars here!}

The Daily Eat: Pear Nutmeg Bread Pudding + Pear Roundup.

{recipe and photo via Culinary Concoctions by Peabody}

I’m sort of a bread pudding-a-holic. I inherited it from my mom, so I’m convinced it’s hereditary. Dying to try this recipe for Pear Nutmeg Bread Pudding.


The Daily Eat: Roasted Eggplant Dip + Eggplant Roundup.

I’m in the middle of a love affair with dip that’s been going on for as long as I can remember. It started innocently enough as a child, using a green pepper from a veggie tray to scoop mouthfuls of it into my greedy little mouth. Ignoring social etiquette and using the same slice of pepper again and again, of course. Now it’s advanced to a high level, for example this Roasted Eggplant Dip. But I still find it hard to turn down a tub of french onion dip from the grocery store!


The Daily Eat: Mocha Cake + Coffee Roundup.

Is this Mocha Cake even possible? It’s an explosion of chocolately goodness that’s also low in sugar. Be still my heart!


The Daily Eat: Lemon Buttermilk Tart + Buttermilk Roundup.

True to my word, I’m not leaving you hanging on the roundup from last week’s Buttermilk Week. I’ve been craving citrus lately, so this Lemon Buttermilk Tart looks absolutely divine!


The Daily Eat: Creamy Ricotta and Bell Pepper Crostini + Pepper Roundup.

Thinking I might make this Creamy Ricotta and Bell Pepper Crostini as an appetizer for the Oklahoma v. BYU game Saturday night! Are you making anything special to kick-off tailgating season?


Labor Day Eats.

I can hardly believe this weekend is Labor Day! Seems like the last few days of summer are zooming past. I put together a little menu full of some few things I’d love to make for a cookout this holiday weekend. Enjoy!

The kiddos can enjoy some (1)Pineapple Mallowade, while we adults sip on (2)Lambic Sangria. A nice raspberry-laced twist on the original. As we relax in the backyard and play some lawn games everyone can munch on some (3)Avocado Salsa and tortilla chips. For dinner a modern take on (4)Broccoli Slaw, crunchy (5)Summer Panzanella, refreshing Korean (6)Sweet and Spicy Cucumbers, juicy (7)Bruschetta Burgers and (8)The Best Baked Beans Ever. And after we digest for awhile and wait for the sun to drop a bit lower in the sky dessert is served: (9)Magic Pudding Dessert for everyone and some *extra special* (10)Cold Comfort Pops for the adults. I don’t know about you, but I sure am full.


The Daily Eat: Grilled Cheese with Fresh Cherries + Cherry Roundup.

I have exactly two things to say about this scrumptious looking Grilled Cheese with Fresh Cherries recipe.

1. What an unlikely pair that I’m now dying to try.
2. I now really want to eat a grilled cheese sandwich with cherries for lunch!


The Daily Eat: Tomatoes Crème Brulée + Tomato Roundup.

This recipe for Tomatoes Crème Brulée looks interesting. If I could manage to get the idea of a traditional crème brulée being a dessert out of my head I think it might be really tasty. But am I that adventurous? Are you?
