I joined a couple more recipe swaps on the PaperCrafts Magazine site. I really enjoy swapping and seeing what others create. The first recipe was for the Iron Chef recipe swap series I am in. My category was pies and my secret ingredient was almonds. I don't really care for almonds so I had to do a little research to find a pie recipe with almonds in it. Pink & brown is still one of my favorite color combos. The pie is dry embossed using a Lasting Impressions template.
The recipe card below was made for a swap called "Get to know your state." We had to find out what the agricultural business was in our state and make a recipe card using those ingredients produced in your state. I had no idea what is produced in Virginia... I live a few miles from DC so there aren't any farms around here! I had to do a little research on this one too. I found out that Virginia has a large dairy cow population. Who knew!? So I decided to use a recipe with milk.... caramel hot chocolate! The cow is a stamp by A Muse.
