Welcome to the CC&M Mega Recipe Blog Hope Day #2

Hi blog hoppers! Weren't Cambria's projects just "the bomb" ? (If you didn't arrive here from Cambria's blog, you don't want to miss what our designers have in store for you! The CC&M Mega Recipe Blog Hop starts at The Diecut Diva's Blog.

Welcome to the first day of the Creative Cuts & More Mega Recipe Blog Hop, which will feature the Holiday Treats Apron Recipe 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 family recipes.

The apron, rings, Doodlebug paper and gingerbread man are all from this adorable apron kit. However, I blinged up Mr. Gingerbread using Liquid Aplique and some rhinestones out of my own stash of stuff. Also, the sticker letters are from my own little supply too. The scallop along the bottom is an American Crafts stamp from their new Shortbread stamp set. I stamped it in Versamark and then used American Crafts white Zing! embossing powder on it. The trees were cut from green Doublmates paper included in the kit.

I didn't take a separate picture of the recipe, but it is one of my family's favorites. It is my personal adaptation of the Mrs. Field's chocolate chip cookie recipe. So here it is:

1 C. Butter

1 C. Brown Sugar
1 C. White Sugar
2 Eggs
Stir in: 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. vanilla and a pinch of salt
2 C. whole wheat flour
Blenderize and then add 2 1/2 cups of oatmeal
12 oz. chocolate chips

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Also, here is another photo of the apron album:

This is done with more Doodlebug paper that is included with the kit. The best thing is that it is already cut to the apron design and just had to be adhered down to the chipboard!! That cute bowl die cut was included and I backed it with some white. I then used my glue pen and sprinkled some Our Craft Lounge Sparkly Fluff (Brown Sugar) to make it look like dough in the bowl. The star and spoon were buttons (also included with this fabulous kit) and I adhered those on the pocket of the apron. The recipe inside is a peanut butter cookie recipe, but I am not going to give that one to you, as most people who like peanut butter cookies already have a personal favorite for that!

Be sure to hop on over to Laura's blog to see how she decorated her apron. Also, be sure to check out what yummy recipe she is offering.
