Welcome to the first day of the Creative Cuts & More Mega Recipe Blog Hop, which will feature 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. This kit is just packed full of good things! I love Cosmo Cricket and this is got lots of the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird line...including the Elements AND Ready-Set-Chipboard! LOVE THAT!!!! What a great value!
This is a page from my album. I will confess, I am not someone who really enjoys cooking. So I wanted the focus to be on the Treasured Family part, not on my recipes. However, I did stick a tag with a recipe behind the photo. So it is included. Since I didn't shoot a second photo of the recipe, I will post it below. I used the paper and the tree die cut from the kit. I did use my In the Garden stamps (Fancy Pants) and Fern Zing! embossing powder in the upper right hand corner of my layout. I also used some dewdrops that I had on hand to decorate my tree.
One other thing I loved about this album (besides all the Cosmo Cricket paper and embellies...) was that the album is cut from black chipboard. I didn't have to paint it, cover it or anything! What a great time saving step!
Okay, here is my Zuccini Bread recipe:
3 C. flour ( I use whole wheat flour)
4 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 C sugar
1 C. oil (I substitute applesauce)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
2 C. Chopped zuccini
1/2 package of chocolate chips
Combine sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla. Blend. Sift together flour, soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Add dry mix to wet. Mix a little at a time. Blend. Add zuccini and mix in chocolate chips.
Put in two greased pans and bake 50-60 minutes at 325 degrees.
Wasn't that easy. Sorry I don't have samples to share...BUT 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.
As a continuing part of the celebration CC&M will of course give away great gifts. Each day we 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 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.
