DDD: What's Cookin'?!

Hi everyone -- I hope your weekend was fabulous :)

 It's the 15th of the month ~ our Dueling Darlings posting day!
Today we post our monthly card kits:
 Barb for the Divas and Debbie for the Dazzlers
 w/ this wonderful theme:
 Recipe Cards!
I was so excited to see Barb's kit this month!
First, she is one of the most generous ladies and her kits are always
so full, you could make cards for days upon days!
This kit was just stuffed full of amazing, wonderful papers and embellishments!
Second, the theme made me smile as my I've been making my
daughter a recipe book for a couple of years now.
She's quite an accomplished chef at just 19 and one day will
enjoy cooking for a husband and family of her own ♥
So when making my recipe card, I asked her for one of her recipes
that I haven't scrapped yet and she gave me her quick mac 'n cheese.
Yum! :) 
Recipe card is 6 x 6, scalloped

Here's the recipe since it's hard to read above! :)
 I was ambitious and actually made a place card as well ~
Barb's kit was stuffed full of goodies!
I think I pretty much used all but a few ribbons ♥
I just adored those wooden spoon and fork embellies :)


Barb also asked us to share why we picked this recipe.
Honestly, it's not the one I would have picked.
 Tt was the one my daughter gave me when I asked for one
so it's the one that was showcased. 
It is yummylicious though!
She makes a fried lasagna noodle dish w/ organic tomato sauce
that is out of this world! 
And, her homemade minestrone soup w/ veggies from her own garden will pretty much knock your boots off! ♥

I have always loved cooking and enjoy it so very much when time permits.
But it's also nice that when dd feels ambitious, that she gets her cookin' on!
And even though we are the busy, need to be too many places family,
and dh working longer/later hours,
we hold fast to one of our family commitments that no matter what
we make it home to have dinner together as family. 
 We eat dinner together - all 6 of us! -

Thank you, Barb, for fabulous kit to play with and to Barb/Deb for this theme.
Please be sure to hop on over to the rest of the DDD
Divas and Dazzlers to see what they've created
 with the dueling them of recipe cards ~ 
 you can find their links in my sidebar.
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
