Our Favorite Recipes Blog Hop!

Welcome to the first day of the Creative Cuts & More Mega Recipe Blog Hop, which is featuring the 8”x8” Treasured Family Recipes Kit. We have 24 designers who will be creating wonderful 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. We will also have 24 designers who will be showcasing their great creations and sharing holiday treat recipes.

Hopefully, you are hopping over from Lori Renn's blog. If not, you can start at the beginning of the hop, at DiecutDiva. I was thrilled to get a chance to work with this adorable kit ( Treasured Family Recipes. ) It is jam packed with yummy Cosmo Cricket papers, chipboard embellies, and die cuts!
I wasn't able to complete the entire album, but I figure it will be a work in progress! I will just continually add to it and as I do that I will share my pages here with you. I am officially addicted to glitter, so I had to add black glitter to the diecut letters. I used my Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle to create the "frame" around the opening. I used some of the Cosmo Cricket chipboard utensils tied with ribbon, as an accent piece. I tied additional ribbon around the metal enclosures along with a few kitchen inspired charms. (Those were from my own personal stash)


For the first page, which if you noticed was peeking through the front cover, is my recipe for Apple Tart. I tucked it behind the photo so the picture took center stage. I don't know about you, but I love pictures of food!
See? Just pull that baby right outta there! : )
Apple Tart
Ingredients:
2 Tablespoons butter at room temp, plus 1 tspn for the cake pan.
1 med. apple
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/4 tspn ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease cake pan. (9 inch round) Slice and peel apple. Place in mixing bowl. Add sugar and cinnamon. Mix with apple. Spread apple in cake pan. Break eggs into mixer bowl. Use electric mixer on med. speed. Pour in milk until blended. Turn mixer on low and mix in the flour 1 tablespoon at a time. Pour batter over apples. Cut remaining butter for topping. Bake for 25 minutes.

Here is another sweet recipe my family enjoys: Pumpkin Spiced Bundt Cake
Ingredients:
1 (18.25 oz) yellow cake mix
1 package instant vanilla pudding.
1 can pumpkin
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
3 eggs
2 tspns pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup pecans
Directions:
Heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 10 or 12 cup Bundt Pan. If using a 10 cup pan, fill 3/4 full and make 3 to 4 cupcakes with remaining batter. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except nuts. Mix on med. speed for 2 minutes. Increase speed to medium-high, mix 3 min. Stir in the nuts. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
Bake at 325 degrees for 45-55 min. or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool 10 min. Remove from pan.
And just an FYI:
"As part of the celebration CC&M will be having a great sale. For the next six days, they 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.
As a continuing part of the celebration CC&M will of course give away great gifts. Each day they will give away one kit. Here is the twist – go through the blog hop, leave wonderful comments for the great designers. After you have finished the blog hop, return to http://www.diecutdiva.com/ and instead of leaving a comment, you need to share a recipe to have a chance at winning the kit. Share the recipe on your blog and link it back and get another chance to win the kit. Help us also make this a great recipe swap."
I am so glad you hopped on over here today! Thanks!
So where to next?

Have a FABULOUS Monday!!!

Seeing these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is everywhere in this day and age, and I am fairly certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further develops, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.

She pushed into the barrier again and sought his square chin and gorgeously wide mouth. Given that theyd once been lovers, he would be more in tune to her feelings. He made no secret that he could read any mind he chose, elvenborn or elvenchanged. That was the logical thought. But she wasnt lashing out. He pulled her into a hug. Hyles warm smile displayed his confidence. Her fingers slid in, unhindered. To Eyrhaen, they all looked rather comfortable together in the domestic scene. This hadnt been part of her agreement with Radin. Would be nice if she mentioned the word love. They all remained shirtless but wore boots now, and Brevin and Lanthan were lightly armed. Thoughts rolled over one another in her head. Brevin cupped her chin with one strong hand. His fingers laced with hers where she clutched the mattress. She took long, glorious moments to simply enjoy the tingles that spread throughout her limbs. He tilted his face back up toward her. He sat in the chair, watching her. She hardly knew how to ask. She slipped her fingers from his mouth, continuing to pump his cock.

His skin—and hers—had already sprouted beads of oily lubrication to ease the grinding of bodies. With one last pat on Erikins arm, she left them to climb the staircase alone. It may mean nothing to you, but I must say that Im proud of you. They had him clean in moments. She clutched him, snatched at her thoughts like fireflies flitting about her.
