Cooking Up Something Special
I'm writing today's blog while sitting with my sister in her house in Memphis, Tennessee, as I make my way home from Pittsburgh after spending a few days at the Forever office. It also happens to be my daughter's birthday, and I'm so excited because she and her husband are coming to our house for Easter weekend and to celebrate her special day. Of course, that means I need to get an early start driving home tomorrow so that I get home before they arrive! Needless to say, I likely won't make it to the grocery store before Kim and Blake arrive, and since I've been away for a week, the cupboard is not too full. Thankfully, I keep a few things on hand so that when the kids come home, it's easy to prepare some of their favorite meals and treats. Like most families, we have some tried and true and cherished recipes, and I love using Artisan to make digital recipe cards. I used to print out my cards and keep them in a little folder, but now I just save those pages to my Forever account. One of the best things about that is that whenever the kids need one of my recipes, they can just go to my Forever Recipe album and find what they need without even asking me! It also comes in handy when a friend wants a recipe - I can just send a link to that album, or share it with her if she's got a Forever account, or I can download a single card and email it.
Since it's Easter weekend, I am sure I'll be making our favorite carrot souffle', and for Kim's birthday I'll either make a Texas sheet cake or Sea Salt Brownies - or both! We love having Rosemary Cashews to nibble on, and it wouldn't be a special breakfast without a Puffed Apple Pancake and Pig Candy. Hope you might enjoy some of these yourself, and maybe you'll be inspired to start making your own Artisan recipe cards and saving them in your Forever account.
