Sito’s Kitchen – “Hushweh”


Hey friends.. how is everyone doing in your part of the world?  We are getting better weather.. for a duck.   Spring is trying to emerge here in Massachusetts, but it’s coming.  We’ve had a couple of tease days of summer.  So nice by the ocean.

Well, I have a new video with my mom up.  We made a rice stuffing called Hushweh.  We pronounce it “HUSHOO”.  This dish is amazing.  This is what we grew up on… as you can tell that I’m not a size 0.. haha.  I’m so happy that my mom, at 91, wants to still do these with me.  It’s what she grew up with since she was a little girl… cooking, sewing and just taking care of others. Lots of sacrifice.  I don’t know how she did it, but you just do.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by.  I love all your comments and support. Don’t forget to LIKE the video and subscribe.

We’ll be back soon with a few more recipes.  In the meantime, enjoy!!

Please let me know if you try this recipe and how it came out.  I could never get the rice right.  Secrets are the key.

Love yaz

New Online Class at Joggles – “Button n’bellishments”


I wanted to share with you some exciting news.

I will be teaching my first online glass in February at Joggles.  Joggles has many online classes along with many art supplies you can order. Seriously cool place to shop.

This will also be first ALL video based class to be held on Joggles.  Usually, all the classes are PDF driven, which are really nice too, but I thought that videos would be more fun and easier to follow, not to mention to get to see me in action or mess up.. kidding.

The class I’m teaching is called “Button n’bellishments“.  I’ve taught this class live before and  I had such a great time with all the students; they made some really cool B&Bs.  Now, I bring it to you online.  You can read the details below.

I’ve been working on this class since October and hope that everyone who signs up enjoys the many videos I have prepared.

This class is scheduled to begin on February 7, 2013.


14 mini-video lessons plus bonus video on how I decorate journal covers and my mixed media collages.

How would you like to make your own embellishments for your journals or any of your mixed media work? In this class, I will show you how to make beautiful, one of a kind, all your own, buttons and embellishments made from polymer clay – I call them “Button n’bellishments”.

This workshop is all video based with several mini-videos per lesson.

Lesson 1: 9 mini-videos.

You’ll begin my learning how to create your pieces by hand with polymer clay and baking them. Hearts, wings, buttons, flowers and faces.

Lesson 2: 5 mini-videos.

We will “antique” your embellishments to make them look vintage-like and then add a glaze to them to make them shine.

The final step will be to adorn your pieces with costume jewelry, old jewelry, fabric, lace, rhinestones and glitter. It’s your world; make them gorgeous! You can download these videos and keep them forever.

You’ll be able to communicate with with me via the Joggles forums for any questions, help or just to show us what you did.

As always, thanks for stopping by and please let me know if you’ve signed up; I’ll be looking for you.  Share this post if you’d like.

Happy Holidays to everyone!  I hope this new year brings you health, happiness and safety.


ATC Workshop & Renewed Friendships


Hey Bloggeroonies…

I recently did a workshop in Rhode Island to my dear friends from the Rhode Island Polymer Clay Guild.  I had stopped going to meetings there a couple of years ago, but was invited back for a workshop after the board members saw my blog.  We also have kept in touch since I left.

I was honored the asked me to teach my ATC workshop.  They were elated that my friend, Karen (you can see her post of the RI visit), and I returned for a visit.  In our honor, they had a buffet lunch and at the end of the day, and because I taught the workshop, they presented me with a Zentangle print shown below. Each of them did a square tangle and they had it professionally printed on one large board.  Seeing this in person is more amazing.  I love the one on the bottom right.. look at that little cat… can you see it?

Here a some pictures of the gang and their ATC’s.

BRAVO, ladies.. they came out gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here’s a call out to Toine, Bobbie, Sandy, Christine, Tricia, Arlene, Ilene, Rita, Tamala, Dora, Sarah, Toni, Pat, Sheila and my partner in crime, Karen.

Thank you all at RIPCG.. you are one terrific group of creative souls.   You haven’t seen the last of me.. I promise.

Thanks for stopping by.


Next up…  Martha’s Vineyard, here I come (may not post next week).
When I get back… what I’ve been up to in the studio.
