PROJECT OF THE MONTH: JUNE DIY Father’s Day Gifts to MAKE NOW

How to DIY HAMMOCK Paracord

PARACORD HAMMOCK from Made in Paracord by Caitlin Wynne – Imagine dad relaxing in his very own handmade hammock.

Father’s Day is less than three weeks away — Sunday, June 19th in the U.S. — just enough time to come up with something that would make dear old pops feel loved. Of course, at the end of the day, like my father who has practically everything, all he really wants is a phone call or skype or facetime if you’re geographically challenged or maybe a hearty hug if you’re closer.

But still. What dad, what MAN (am I profiling?), wouldn’t want to get a bright red tool box full of homemade BBQ, bacon, and chili flavored chocolate? Or a handmade Paracord hammock? Does he play golf?–hand dipped tees? Does he like to hike? Enjoy nature and the great outdoors? How about homemade beef jerky? Or does he enjoy watching sports–Remote Control Cookie? What about beer? One of the coolest new items coming out of Japan is a Frozen Beer Slushy Maker by Kirin Ichiban that perfectly pairs with the DIY black and tan soap! Scroll and click for more homemade DIY Father’s Day gift ideas sure to make pappy happy!

Upscale Downhome features recipes that are “a mix of my down-home roots and the upscale presentation I’ve learned from living in Los Angeles for the last fifteen years,” Rachel reveals. “This book is a perfect testament to my life long love affair with food. It has the sugar cookie recipe my mom made me as a child, the chicken and dumplings I craved while pregnant. It has the turkey chili recipe which was the first dish I perfected as a newlywed. And the cocktail I drank in my early twenties… it’s the story of my life, as told in food. Upscale Downhome is filled with casseroles, slow cooker recipes, desserts, drinks and there’s even an entire section on dishes you can make with the leftovers from the recipes in other chapters!”

EDIBLE CRAFTS: Star Chocolate Covered Black Velvet Cookies… Brushed with Edible Gold!!!

YEAH BABY! as Austin Powers would say.

MoniqueChocolateVelvetStars

@moni_o_matic Black Velvet Star-shaped Cut-out Cookie recipe from The Sweetapolita Bake Shop

We’re over the moon and stars about our Editorial Director, Monique’s, passion and ridiculous talent for creating beautiful homemade handcrafted sinfully delicious baked treats.

I asked Monique (on instagram as @moni_o_matic) how she made the star cookies. She used the Black Velvet star-shaped cut-out recipe from The Sweetapolita Bake Shop by Rosie Alyea. I did some quick digging and discovered that Rosie has, in addition to her book, a shop on Etsy where you can purchase colorful edible decorations to fancy-up your edible creations! Monique, of course, being the artisan that she is, added her Moni_O_Matic Mojo to Rosie’s recipe, covering the cookies with modeling chocolate and then brushing them with 100% edible gold powder.
