OMG! I made the Front Page of Etsy!

On October 11, 2009 I accidentally stumbled across one of my rings on the Front Page of Etsy - one of my favorite rings, actually. Needless to say I was shocked.

It's 4 days later and I'm still filled with the same overwhelming emotion when I think about it. I find it quite an honor and dare I say a sign of things to come.

My heartfelt thanks goes out to Seema of Flowered Sky for including me in her wonderful Treasury and to the Etsy Staff for placing it on the front page!

I Love Copper...

How it feels in my hands while shaping it...

And forming it...

There nothing quite like flexible and malleable

Such a wonderful living metal...

White Balsamic Glazed Chicken

White Balsamic Glazed Chicken

3 chicken breasts - filleted
1 large onion - chopped
4-6 cloves of garlic - chopped
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes - chopped
1 cup white wine - I use what I have in the house at the time. This time it was chardonnay.
3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

Heat oil in skillet on medium high heat. Cook chicken until just about cooked through, remove and set aside. Saute the onion, garlic and sun-dried tomato. Add the white wine and balsamic. Reduce the heat & return the chicken to the pan. Cook until the sauce has reduced & thickened up a little and the chicken has cooked through - 5 - 10 minutes or so.
