Digital Two for Tuesday - Recipe Book
It's been a busy month prepping for this little project... at least in my head... I had so many ideas it is funny and perfect all at the same time to see what I ended up with, lol. Two For Tuesday always has a fine selection of great vintage images for your use. Hop on over there and check out the other 4 recipe projects! They're all great, and we all ended up with something different. So fun. Cora selected many great images for us to use, and has posted them as well with our samples for you to use! We were not limited to the project... just had to use at least 8 of the images and tags.
My recipe book is 7x6 inches with a pocket perfect for a standard sized recipe card, or even a little bigger... I cut the pocket diagonal thinking the little clippings I find along the way can also store and be seen while I try them and make a big card for them. I chose K&Co Amy Butler (Lucky Flowers) paper throughout. No surprise I picked K&Co but this stack in particular really 'hit the spot' for me. I love the bold colors and patterns throughout. I kept the embellishments simple using only small Prima's and stitching throughout, along with the same layout per page. I love 50's styles with the use of ric-rac and stitching for borders. I used a Martha Stewart punch along the left side of each page to bring this touch to each page, along with a bit of folded paper at the bottom. The book is bound with my BIA. Cora's images were easily re-sized with perfect clarity for this project.
My last picture shows a recipe that is too simple and totally delish. It's a must try, and a must keep in your new recipe project! I found the old looking recipe card at Free Printables Online.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tlbs baking powder
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup chocolate chips
Mix dry ingredients
Add 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
Mix. Kneed all together until combined. Press into a 1-inch thick circle. Cut into 1/8's.
Bake 16-18 minutes.
Switch it up substituting the walnuts and chocolate chips! They are great with dried fruit and almonds too. They keep for 3 days. My new fav with my coffee in the morning!
Thank you Cora for the opportunity to join you and the other talented ladies you chose for this project. I am loving the final project.
