I just love Lucy, everytime I hear some one say "Lucy" I think of my sweet husband. I would probably say that for at least 15 years or more when he comes in from work he always enters our home saying "Lucy, I'm home" and I always reply "Dezi I am in Here". So when I was asked to participate of course I was just thrilled.
Abby assigned each of us an episode and mine was "The Diet". Dezi told Lucy that she need to lose a little weight to perform in his musical act that he was preparing for. Ethel decided she would be Lucy's personal trainer and you can only image the rest of the story. As soon as I heard that this is the episode that I would be doing I decided I would do a low calorie recipe book. So I got some of my favorite recipe books and began looking of course at recipes.
Some of my favorite magazines are Light Cooking, Healthy Cooking, and the never fail Weight Watchers.
I also borrowed a couple of cookbooks to look through and here is what I came up with.
I got a skinny Basic Grey Album that measures 2 1/2"x 5 3/4" book for my "Life is a Garden of BEE Slim Recipes". Don't you love how I used the BEE as my "B", hee, hee, hee. All of my papers, embellishments, and die cuts are from Imaginisce new "Berrylicious" Line
I also raised the little "BEE" up on pop dots to give him flight. My letters are from Making Memories Cheeky Shimmer Sticker letters.
This recipe is for "Peach Crumb Pie". Check out how I made a small pocket to place part of my recipe in.
I stamped with Black Memento Ink and colored them in with Copic Markers.
Here is a recipe for the pie crust for the Peach Crumb Pie.
Don't you love the little Watermelon Die Cut. I made a fold up card with it and placed my Watermelon Sorbet in it. It sounded so refreshing and easy. I love easy. To keep it closed I used a pin from the Tim Holtz pins and placed another small bee on it.
The second recipe is a for "Frosting" for those Strawberrilious Cupcakes.
WELL, Did you see the pattern for my recipe book, all desserts. Got to love it, just like "I Love Lucy".
Your next stop on the "I Love Lucy Blog Hop" is with Linda at Krazy Quilling, again make sure to do all of the hop, there will be lots of projects, tutorials, and ideas to be inspired by. Make sure to also make it to Abby's at Scrapbookaholic by Abby and let her know that you did the hop. She has some fabulous sponsors. (SEI, Elmers Glue, an I Love Lucy Doll and bracelet to mention a few things. Enjoy the recipes and if you would like to share a light recipe I would love it and I am sure others would also and if you aren't a follower of my blog I would love to have you join my follower list.

I take 12 salted almonds crush them with a spoon, add a tablespoon of chocholate chips and 1/3 cup of dried cranberries. Yummy, sweet and oh so satisfying.
I have these items on hand at work. When I am tired and looking to eat something for energy this holds me over.

What a great recipe book! Love the ideas you showed, like the pocket and the watermelon. Too cute!ReplyDelete
OK, tear an angel food cake into bite-size pieces. Put enough pieces to cover the bottom of a trifle dish or pretty dessert dish/bowl. Cover that with fresh or thawed strawberries (actually, any berry will work, love this with blackberries), drizzle with enough juice to soak into the cake. Next, a layer of whipped cream. Repeat, and if it's a really deep dish like a trifle dish, make a third layer. If you'd like, use a few berries to decorate the top. Yummy!
Great ideas! Thanks for sharing. I Love the hop!ReplyDelete

One of my all-time fav WW dessert recipes:
1 box angel food cake mix
1 can crushed pineapple with juice
Prepare angel food cake mix using pineapple with juice. (I've made in it either an angel food pan Or a 9 x 13 pan).
Bake and serve with Fat-free Cool-Whip!
