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".
