Today’s post has nothing at all to do with food. I thought I would show you a doll I made that was delivered to her owner last week! (Yes, sometimes I do things besides cook! LOL!) Note: This post is image heavy. In addition, there are a couple of pictures of a nude doll below! This is Narin-Ja. She is an Ottoman Elf.

We call this stuff “chezee”, since it’s not cheese, but it’s a vegan version! It’s comparable to a fresh, soft goat cheeze, mixed with herbs and can be used in recipes in place of it. This is really easy to make, since the nuts can soak on the counter and once that’s done, it only takes a few minutes in the blender.

Spring rolls are great for lunch, dinner, or even an after-school snack. You can put whatever you have on hand in them, they don’t take long to make, and the wrappers can be kept in the pantry for months!
