I usually like to sleep late on Sunday, but the lovely light I spied coming through the windows today simply said, "Don't be silly. Get up and enjoy the morning." So, I did just that.
Today, I finally had...er...made some time to work on a project I've been excited about for some time. If you're anything like me, you have recipes folded and tucked into cookbooks, sticking out of random kitchen drawers and on the backsides of empty ingredient boxes you refuse to throw away. Not only is it frustrating, but often it's unfortunate, because the recipes lying sad in the dark drawer next to twist ties and scotch tape have been passed along to us by someone very important in our lives, occasionally, someone who is no longer around - someone we remember every time the warm smell of cinnamon drifts out of the kitchen during the holidays or when we slice into a thick tasty lasagna. Sooooo, I want to save them from the disgrace. My friend Heather from the blog Kitchen Nerd was kind enough to lend me a very special and sentimental recipe from her collection to illustrate. She loves bright colors and has a quirky sense of humor like me, so I tried to work that into the finished product. What do you think? I'll be offering custom recipe illustration in my shop and can't wait to see what semi-secret family yummies people share.
