My new adventure begins with a cute journal! This was a dollar find at Michaels. I embellished with a doily, some paper, a stamp, and yes, my handwriting.
I like how the inside pages of this book is lined and on kraft instead of white paper. I'm looking forward to keeping track of things I've learned as I try to cook more healthy meals and just cooking more in general.
Now I wanted to share my first cooking adventure. Sadly it wasn't too adventurous since it was a recipe I had already made. But I was able to get the recipe off my ipad and throw away my stained paper copy. That's a big plus as I move to less and less paper.
The first item I cooked was an appetizer dish from Rachel Ray. The dish is called Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms. I had to alter it a little bit, but it still was yummy!
For this recipe I made 2 dozen and still had a lot of stuffing left over. Me and my hubby just ate these as our dinner. Let me just say...we devoured this dish! Oh, and I was able to use my 'guest' dishes - you know those dishes you only use when you have guests. This is one of my favorites I got from CB2 which is a 'sister' company to Crate and Barrel. Here is the medium platter available online only $3.95...I believe mine is smaller...but it may not be available anymore.
The main ingredients are intalian sausage, spinach, garlic, and bread crumbs. Check out the recipe HERE.
I hope you are not too hungry after reading this post. Have fun stamping, cooking, and eating! =)
