Recipe Page

I have a 6" x 6" album full of recipe pages like this.  It all started in one of Terri's Stamp Share swaps.  It was fun to get a bunch of recipes to add to the album.  And as time went on I would make one up to add to it as well.  It's such a colorful book of fun recipes.  

This is one of the recipes I like to make when it's cold outside and trust me, it's 12 degrees F here right now and downstairs in my workroom it's VERY chilly!

And there is really nothing like a hearty meal on a cold night. One thing great about this recipe is that it is not only hearty but it's very low fat and low calorie.  

These pages are very easy to make.  For mine, I had taken a photo of the dinner and then imported it into my word processing software.  I typed up the recipe a printed it all out at once.  Then I stamped over the recipe and sponged the edges.  Here I used Cajun Craze for my color.  The background piece is cut 6" x 6" and the recipe part is cut 5-3/4" x 5-3/4" and that is all there is to it!!

If you'd like to make this hearty dish, here's the recipe:

2 jars of Heinz fat-free gravy mix (the dry gravy mix will work too but you need 24 ounces total)
1 bag of frozen vegetables (I usually use peas and carrots)
Diced Chicken or Turkey (Canned chicken will work too, it's easier and quicker)
1/8t. celery salt
1/8t. pepper
pinch of sage, crumbled (optional)
Pour the gravy in a sauce pan and heat it up, add the chicken, celery salt and pepper.  Stir in the vegetables and just before you serve it, stir in the sage.  You can serve it over rice, noodles, toast or have it just as it is.  It can also be used as a pot pie or pierogi filling.  YUM!!!  

So take some of your favorite recipes and make some great pages for an album.  I am thinking of putting some of our son's favorite recipes together in an album and giving it to his new wife. Not that he had an old one!!! LOL  They are newlyweds!!!  

Here's a few more recipe pages I have on my blog.  Just click here.  

Happy stamping and happy cooking!!!
