My Cricut Craft Room's Bake & Recipe Blog Hop



Welcome to the Bake and Recipe Blog Hop hosted by the awesome Erica of My Cricut Craft Room . You should've came from the super crafty Tracy.

With the holidays coming fast and furiously we need some good baking and recipe crafts.

Here's what I made....

It's a recipe book.





I cut the bases at 6". I cut this cute tree from Create-a-Critter at 4". I inked the edges of the tree with some MS pigment ink in the Aquarium set to make it have some depth. The awesome crinkle ribbon is a mix of my stash from 3 Girl Jam and My Craft Spot .






Here is a close-up of the back of the white 3" x 5" card to write down the recipes. I adhered some of the patterned paper to give the back a touch of the book. I put these lil velcro tabs on each end of the recipe card so you can remove when you use and replace when done.





Here is a close-up of the inking and corner rounding I did on the pages. I used my X-acto corner rounder and the same MS ink as I did on the tree.






I pop dotted the tree to make it stand out.

And what would be a recipe book without an awesome recipe?

 Potato Soup

5 large diced potatoes
1 large onion (chopped)
1 tsp salt

In a pot, with enough water to just cover the potatoes and onions, boil until potatoes are soft.

In the same pot add, 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese (cut into small pieces). Cook on medium until cream cheese is dissolved.

Then add...

1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 can Cream of Celery Soup
2 cups of Milk
2 TBS butter
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 block of Velveeta cheese
1 small container of sour cream

Cook on Low Heat until all ingredients have melted and are well-blended.

When ready to eat...dip into bowl and top with some mild or sharp shredded cheddar cheese, crisp real bacon bits and chopped green onions.

This is delicious!!!!
