Golden Treasures in Rainbow Coasters

Hello everyone! I know I haven't posted anything for the past two weeks. Just been quite busy with office work. Do you remember my last post? The one entitled, "Holiday Season Crochet Marathon Part 3". Well, in that post, I featured some crocheted items I made for my friends and colleagues during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

I got the original design from Crochet Spot, a site that provides crochet patterns and tutorials.

Well, certainly not the ones using test tubes and flasks. The usual experiments I make are on veggies and salads. I would either follow or modify the ingredients by adding or subtracting based on what's available in my refrigerator or cupboard.

For this new year, here's how I ventured into some recipe tests...
