Since our challenge is Food and Beverages I decided to feature a 'blast from the past.'  When I got involved in scrapbooking, my first designs were for a 'Recipe' scrapbook.  The pages contained favorite family recipes.  Some have pictures and some silly depictions of the recipe name (i.e. a chocolate chip, a hammer and a cake for Chocolate Pound Cake, I know corny).  Today I am featuring two of my favorite pages and recipes.  The first is Uncle Boy's Honey Ham.

Here is the recipe:
Uncle Boy's Honey Ham
Wash Ham.  Pat with brown sugar, 1/8" to 1/4" thick.
Stick pineapple rings on with toothpicks.  Drizzle with honey.
Cover entire pan with foil.  Bake in a preheated oven @ 200 degrees for 3-4 hours.
Last 30 minutes take cover off.  Drizzle with honey and bake uncovered.
Let stand 30 minutes before serving.  Yummo!

Project details:
Size:  8.5" x 11" page
Pig:  This design is from an old desktop publishing software.  I printed one out and made my pattern from their.  All objects are hand cut and enhanced.
Cardstock and Patterned Paper were from my stash over 13 years ago.

Here's my second project for this challenge:

This too is from my Recipe Scrapbook.  It is a favored cake of my family.  Although the recipe shown is Alan Jackson's Chocolate Sheet Cake, in my family it is fondly known as Aunt Edna's Chocolate Cake.  My Aunt Edna is much older than Alan Jackson so I reserve the rights for her.  There is not a family function that I have attended in the last 55 years that has not seen this cake.  It is my favorite!!  This is definitely a chocolate lover's delight!  You can find this recipe HERE.
Here are the details:
Size:  8.5" x 11" page
Cardstock:  Bazzill Basics Paper - Red and Black
Foil Paper:  unsure of manufacturer
Stickers:  Me and My Big Ideas
Color Medium:  Sukura White Jelly Roll Pen
Tools:  Magic Matter was used to cut the foil mat; Marvy Uchida - Corner Rounder; Creative Memories Circle Cutter System

Like the recipe layouts. Personal handwriting makes it more special. I have been making recipe layouts for my daughter.
