Illustrated Recipes

I’m enjoying the assignments for Carla Sonheim’s year-long class, Words and Pictures.

This assignment was especially fun because I enjoy cooking. πŸ™‚

My hubby helped me make this recipe in the crock pot last week since I get tired standing fairly quickly with my hip. I cooked it on low for 8 hours.

We made it without the wine and just added more broth. It was really delish!

For the second recipe, I experimented with tissue paper and gelli-printed papers. Plus, a few other scraps of purchased paper:

I look forward to Spring and fresh rhubarb in my yard so I can make this recipe.

Do you have a favorite recipe you like to make in the Spring? I’d love to hear about it!

Cheers! πŸ™‚

  5. Love your recipe art! I actually just made beef stew in my crock pot last week and the recipe I used is almost the same. Ours was yummy! Hope yours was too.

    • Hi Nancy, I got the recipe online but I changed it a bit… it was really good! πŸ˜ƒ Nothing like a good bowl of hearty beef stew to warm you on a cold day! πŸ‘ Thanks for commenting! 😍

  6. Beef Burgundy is exactly what we are having for dinner tonight, but wine included… what are cinnamon candies? One our favourite recipes for any fine weather is a salmon salad with Rose Marie dressing. It is a Jamie Oliver recipe and available in Pinterest.

    • Hi Sally, red hot cinnamon candies that used to be easy to find in the store but the last time I went to buy it, I had a hard time finding them! πŸ˜‰ I will check out your salmon salad recipe. Enjoy your beef stew! 🍷
