(Almost) raw mexican crackers

Oh my, now I’m going to present you the best recipe for crackers. Even though the preparation and “cooking” take quite some time, the result is amazing! These are: (almost) raw mexican crackers! They are “almost” raw because I don’t have the dehydrator for raw food and food is raw as long as it’s not thermally processed above 40 °C. Because I don’t own a dehydrator, I used our oven on the lowest temperature, 50 °C, on the ventilation program.

Oh joj, zdaj pa vam bom predstavila najboljši recept za krekerje. Sicer priprava in “kuhanje” vzameta res res veliko časa, vendar je končni izdelek neverjeten! To so: (skoraj) presni mehiški krekerji! Skoraj presni zato, ker je hrana presna, dokler ni termično obdelana nad 40 °C, in ker doma nimam pravega presnega dehidratorja. Uporabila sem kar domačo pečico na najmanjši temperaturi, 50 °C, na ventilacijskem programu.

Let’s pass to the ingredients:

  • 2 cups ground flax seeds
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 green pepper
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 1 big onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • some salt

Mix the ground flax seeds with two cups water and leave for at least five hours.Then we blend all the other ingredients and mix them with flax seeds. The mixture will be split on two trays, covered with parchment paper. Spread the mixture as thinly as possible – it takes much more time to dry otherwise. We put both trays in the oven and dry them for 3–4 hours. When the bottom part is dry enough, turn the mixture on the other side and dehydrate for the next 5–6 hours. As I’ve said before, the dehydrating process is very long. If your mixture is dry after just a few hours (especially if you dry them at a higher temperature), take it out of the oven and break it into pieces. IMG_9256

Pa pojdimo k sestavinam:

  • 2 lončka zmletih lanenih semen
  • 2 lončka vode
  • 1 rdeča paprika
  • 1 zelena paprika
  • dva srednje velika paradižnika
  • ena velika čebula
  • dva stroka česna
  • pol žličke kajenskega popra
  • malo soli

Zmleta lanena semena zmešamo z dvema lončkoma vode in pustimo, da srkajo vodo vsaj 5 ur. Nato zmeljemo vse ostale sestavine in jih zmešamo z lanenimi semeni. Maso razdelimo na dva dela in vsako polovico razmažemo po pekaču, prekritem s peki papirjem. Pazite – razmazana masa mora biti res tanka, drugače potrebuje več časa, da se dobro posuši. Nato oba pekača potisnemo na različni rešetki v pečici. Najprej sušimo 3–4 ure na eni strani, in ko je dovolj suho, da brez packarije posušeno maso odstranimo s peki papirja, maso obrnemo in sušimo še nadaljnjih 5–6 ur. Kot sem že rekla, sušenje res traja kar nekaj časa. Če se vam zdi, da so vaši krekerji že po nekaj urah popolnoma suhi (zlasti če jih boste sušili na višji temperaturi), jih vzemite iz pečice in še tople nalomite na poljubno velike kose.

Mexican crackers are great as a snack with different mexican dips, but I like them just as they are. Bon appétit! :)

Mehiške krekerje lahko ponudite kot prigrizek z različnimi mehiškimi namazi, jaz pa jih rada grickam kar same. Dober tek! :)

NOTD #4 – Revlon Charming

I love violet clothes, my violet watch, violet wardrobe, violet umbrella … and last but not least, my Revlon pastel violet nail polish. I’ve had it for a month and use it at least once per week, aaaa! Luckily, the jar contains quite a lot of polish, but I’ll have to find a new one at some point in the future. Until then, I’ll be happy to wear it and I’ll pretend that it will be with me forever :D

Ljubim vijolična oblačilasvojo, vijolično uro, vijoličo omaro, vijoličen dežnik … in navsezadnje Revlonov pastelno vijoličen lak za nohte. Imam ga en mesec in na nohtih ga imam vsaj enkrat na teden, aaaa! Na srečo ga je v posodici res veliko, vendar bom morala na neki točki v prihodnosti poiskati novega. Do takrat pa ga bom veselo nosila in se pretvarjala, da ga bom imela za vedno :D

What’s on my face today?

IMG_9142

I’m currently using the Revlon Colorstay (200 Nude) and I always apply it with a sponge. Then I apply the Collection Lasting Perfection (2 Medium) powder on all parts that become shiny during the day. I’ve bought it in London and did not try it out on my skin. However, it perfectly matches my skin tone. Sometimes it works without testing :) For my cheeks, I chose a very light pink  Alverde blush (04 Soft Pink).

Trenutno uporabljam Revlon Colorstay (200 Nude), ki jo nanašam z gobico. Nato čez vse predele, ki se čez dan začnejo svetit, nanesem puder v kamnu, in sicer Collection Lasting Perfection (2 Medium). Kupila sem ga v Londonu brez preskušanja na koži, tako da sem zelo presenečena, da dejansko ustreza mojemu tenu. Včasih pač uspe :) Na lička sem nanesla še rdečilo v svetlo roza barvi, danes sem izbrala Alverde (04 Soft pink).

I usually apply eyeshadows generously but I never exaggerate. First, I applied the elf mineral primer on the eyelid and then the Maybelline Color Tattoo (70 Metallic Pomegranate) in the outer part. I used an MUA eyeshadow palette Heaven and Earth – a light brown shade in the eyelid and a dark brown in the crease. I drew a line with a black essence eye pencil on the upper lash line and the outer part of the lower lash line and then a pearly essence highlighting eye pencil in the inner corner of the eye and a bit on both upper and lower lash line. I don’t focus on my eyebrows much, I just use the Catrice eyebrow filler and the essence clear mascara – in this way, the eyebrows really stay in place. At the end I apply the Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express mascara which really accentuates the eyes.

I most definitely won’t describe the whole process the next time, it just takes too long to write it! And I wonder if anyone would read that ;) Have a wonderful weekend!

Pri nanosu senčk sem vedno zelo radodarna, vendar z barvami ne pretiravam. Najprej sem nanesla elf mineralni primer za veke, nato pa na zunanjo stran še Maybelline Color Tattoo (70 Metallic Pomegranate). Na notranjo stran veke sem nanesla MUA svetlo rjavo, na zunanjo stran pa temno rjavo senčko iz palete Heaven and Earth. Ker imen senčk nima, sem jih označila kar s pikico :) S črno essence barvico sem potegnila črto po zgornji veki in na zunanjem robu spodnje veke, z essence osvetljevalcem za oči pa sem namazala notranji kot oči in malo zgornje in spodnje veke, da se učki lepo svetijo. Z obrvmi se ne ukvarjam preveč, uporabljam samo rjavo Catrice maskaro za obrvi in naredim nekaj potegov po obrveh, nato pa nanesem še essence prozorno maskaro, da obrvi res ostanejo na svojem mestu. Za konec pa še Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express maskara, ki še dodatno poudari oči.

Naslednjič vam zagotovo ne bom pisala celega poteka, to vzame čisto preveč časa! Pa vprašanje, če bi to sploh kdo bral ;) Lep vikend vam želim!
