Master Forger of Ceremonies Julene's first challenge for us?
Scrapbook an OLD recipe. Perhaps you have one handed down from mother or grandmother or further back than that. Use those cookery items you added to your kit to scrap it. You could tell a little about the original person on your layout or perhaps even add a small photo of them.
Last month on our Spring Break trip we visited Laurel, Mississippi, home of the HGTV HomeTown renovation/improvement show. On the season's last episode a legendary Laurel recipe surfaced inside a cupboard door - Miss Dot's Sour Cream Pound Cake! The cake would be delivered to anyone who moved into the neighborhood over the years, including the hostess of the show. The recipe included a phone number & they actually reached Miss Dot. A cooking date was arranged, the cake was baked, and the very next day many fans of the show baked it themselves. I decided to give it a try and I'm sharing the recipe with you!
It was fabulous, especially since I haven't been eating carbs or sugar, hehe. I cut the cake into 24 small servings & froze what we didn't eat that night. I think I overfilled the bundt pan but read later that I could have made muffins with the extra batter. You could also make it in loaf pans.
I had a lot of fun working with my uber-themey kit. Now it's your turn to give this challenge a try & celebrate a special recipe or person!
