Creative Cuts & More Mega Recipe Blog Hop!

Hi blog hoppers! Weren't Jen's projects fabulous? (If you didn't arrive here from Jen's blog, you don't want to miss what our designers have in store for you! The CC&M Mega Recipe Blog Hop starts HERE.




Welcome to the first day of the Creative Cuts & More Mega Recipe Blog Hop, which will feature the 8"x8" Treasured Family Recipes Kit. There are 24 designers who will be creating recipe book pages to inspire you. Plus we all will be sharing some of our own delicious treasured family recipes. Make sure you check back at http://www.diecutdiva.com/ tomorrow for the Holiday Treats Apron Recipe Kit Blog Hop. There will be 24 designers who will be showcasing their great creations and sharing holiday treat recipes! YUM!

Here is a link to the kit that I used to create this recipe book:




As part of the celebration CC&M will be having a great sale. For the next six days, we will offer 20% off the entire store. But act quickly, it is only for six days – this sale will end on Nov 14th. Make sure you enter this code recipebloghop2009 during checkout.

Here are some of the pages I created:







I am going to print out my recipes and laminate them to put in between the chipboard pages. This way I can take them out and use them. I am a messy, messy cook so laminating is key! I also plan to include lots of handwritten recipes of my late mother.

Speaking of my mother, I want to share with you a recipe that she often made for her girlfriends for their card playing nights when I was a little girl:

Nana Pat's Apple Cake


Ingredients:
3 C all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 C oil
1 1/2 C granulated sugar
4 eggs
1/2 C orange juice
4 apples, pared and sliced (not too thin)
cinnamon and brown sugar for sprinkling in pan

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients except for the apples in bowl. Mix by hand until smooth. Grease a bundt pan with butter then sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar. Pour in half of the cake batter. Add the apples. Sprinkle with more cinnamon and brown sugar. Add the rest of the batter. Sprinkle with more cinnamon and brown sugar.

Bake for one hour.


Now, continue on our hop and go to Michele Kovac's blog to see what she has done with the kit and what she's cookin'!

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings and Peace,

~Lori
