322 - Nomtastic Cheesecake Brownies  

I'm a bigger girl. I love to eat. While at Craftalicious in November there was a lady who sold cheesecake brownies and I was in heaven. I've been craving them ever since. Well, I found a recipe for them and they are damn tasty. Try a batch and I know you'll agree. I mean, c'mon! Brownies=awesome. Cheesecake=awesome. So it stands to reason that Cheesecake Brownies=NOM NOM NOM!


  • 1 (19.8 ounce) package brownie mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (you can even use light if you're so inclined)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup white sugar


  1. Prepare the brownie mix as directed by the box. Preheat oven to temperature indicated on box. Grease an 8x8 inch pan.
  2. Spread the brownie batter evenly into the pan. Using an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese, egg and sugar until smooth. Dollop the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie batter. Swirl together using a spoon or knife or finger.
  3. Again, listen to the box and bake it for however long it says. I found with mine that the minimum time was just perfect. Brownies will be done when a toothpick or knife or finger inserted comes out clean. Cool in the pan (if you can wait that long), then cut into bars and serve.
  4. Become the envy of everyone you know. These are just so damn good.

320 - Yarn Artists, You Need This!  

Are you a knitter or crocheter? Are you tired and winding balls by hand? I know I was! That's why I got my hands on one of these babies!

The Royal Yarn Winder is a fabulous investment! They are a little pricey but they are MORE than worth it. As an example, I just wound a 400g ball of yarn into 5 more easily handled balls of yarn in all of 5 minutes. Okay, so they aren't so much balls as little centre pulled cakes, but they don't roll around and are awesome. You need one.

318 - Redd's Annual Cardigan - Progress  

I've been on a hiatus from my cardigan. Not because I wanted to, but because I had to. So far, this December, I've sold 10 Jayne Cobb hats. TEN! So needless to say every waking moment was knitting for customers, leaving no time to knit for me.

Now that I haven't made a hat in a few days (phew!) I decided to take a crack at this sweater again. I'm just about done the second sleeve. Hooray!!

317 - New Year means New Plans  

So 2010 is shaping up to be very different than 2009.

I've been brainstorming for new directions for Dame Named Redd Designs. The answer that came to me is The Beautiful Dame. I've always wanted to try my hand at soap and eyeshadow and 2010 I will make my pipe dreams a reality. It's going to be EPIC!

315 - Random Redd Fact  

Little known fact, I love fountain pop. I don't know why but it tastes SO much better than cans or bottles. When I go somewhere to eat I always try to get a large Diet Pepsi or Diet Coke. If I ever win the lottery I'm definitely going to buy a fountain drink machine and it will be glorious.
