A peachy delight!Posted: September 25, 2022 Filed under: Home and Garden | Tags: Ass, baking, BDSM, Birthday, D/s, dievca, End of Summer, Food, happy, Love, peach crumble, peaches, recipe, submissive 1 Comment
The peaches are still in season here in NYC. dievca bought 5 lbs of Organic Yellow Peaches and 3 lbs of local NJ Yellow Peaches. she knows they are good because they were a staple of her diet, last week, and they still looked good/smelled good at Whole Foods this morning.
A crumble is a baked dish of fresh fruit (apples, berries, plums, etc.) that is topped with an oat-based streusel.
To celebrate her birthday, dievca is going to bake a Peach Crumble with her wonderful peaches.
She will be sharing with Master and friends.
dievca would love to share her crumble with you in person, but has to offer the recipe instead. she would like to make the suggestion that you visit your favorite grocer and see if your area has the fabulous peaches, available. Crumble or no crumble – they are worth it.
Peach Crumble Recipe
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 45 minutes Total Time: 55 minutes
Ingredients for the Filling:
2 1/2 lbs peaches (8 medium), fresh or frozen*
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, (omit if using frozen fruit)
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Ingredients for the Topping:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/8 tsp sea salt
8 Tbsp 1 stick cold, unsalted butter, diced
½ cup old fashioned rolled oats or quick-cooking oats
1 cup sliced almonds, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9×12 casserole baking dish.
To Blanch Peaches: Place peaches in boiling hot water for one minute or just until skins come off easily then transfer immediately to cold water. Peel, pit and slice into 1/2″ thick pieces. Transfer to a large bowl and toss peaches with 2 Tbsp lemon juice.
In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour and toss with the sliced fruit just until evenly coated. Pour into buttered baking dish.
Combine 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/3 cup brown sugar, and 1/8 tsp (pinch) of salt. Add the diced cold butter about the size of peas.
Transfer mixture to a bowl, add 1/2 cup oatmeal and use your hands to make large crumbles. Add ½ cup of the sliced almonds and mix to combine.
Spread the topping evenly over the fruit and sprinkle the top with ½ cup of almonds. Bake 45 minutes at 350˚F or until top is golden and the fruit is bubbling at the edges.
*If using frozen fruit, fully thaw, drain and dab with paper towels to remove excess juice.
**If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a whisk for the dry ingredients and a pastry blender/cutter to cut the butter into the dry ingredients.

Sustainable Seed Company’s Window Herb Garden Kit $34.99
dievca is trying to figure out if she should to replant her hydroponic Mason Jar Garden or just go with this Window Herb Kit. Maybe both….the trick is that her large windows generate a lot of heat. Are you starting to plant a garden?
Replacing ‘Something of Use’ after 29 yearsPosted: April 2, 2021 Filed under: Accessories, Home and Garden | Tags: BDSM, Crate & Barrel, D/s, dievca, happy, History, kitchen, Love, melamine, Memories, nesting bowls, practical, recycling, Rosti, something of use Leave a comment
In a Past Life, dievca received a set of melamine mixing bowls from Crate and Barrel as a gift.
The bowls have been through multiple moves, lived in Europe, have been dropped, washed, held salads and made cookies numerous times. Like everything else, 29 years of weekly wear has taken a toll. The pouring spouts are chipped, the rubber holders on the bottom are deteriorating and, yet, dievca is holding on to them.
Why? The bowl portion itself has not cracked and Melamine is categorized under Class #7 on the list of Plastic Resin Codes. This means that it is a widely used plastic that does not fit into the more commonly used #1-6 classifications and should not be thrown in your recycling bin. Melamine cannot be melted for recycling like other plastics.
The bowls are a modern classic. Created by Danish designers – Rosti in 1954, the Margrethe bowl was produced and named after then Princess Margrethe, the current queen of Denmark. The easy-care melamine mixing bowls have ergonomic handles, pouring spouts and a non-skid ring at the bottom.
dievca looked up the bowls on the Crate and Barrel website and they are still listed for sale. In fact, they now come with lids – that wasn’t available the first time around. The price? $39.95
The question is….can dievca throw away the still usable bowls and all the memories attached to them.
Zen on Espresso Day!Posted: November 23, 2020 Filed under: Entertainment, Home and Garden | Tags: BDSM, coffee, D/s, dievca, happy, Love, Monday, Morning, National Espresso Day, peaceful, submissive Leave a comment
The word espresso (/ɛˈsprɛsoʊ/; Italian pronunciation: [eˈsprɛsso]) in Italian means ‘quick in time.’ Before the advent of the espresso machine, espresso was simply a coffee expressly made for the person ordering it. It was also made with recently roasted and freshly ground beans. The cup was brewed shortly before serving. In the late 1800s, this practice was commonplace in cafés and restaurants.
Does anyone else find this gif mesmerizing?
dievca just went into a trance~
Happy Espresso Day!
