Today’s card and a plug (10-28)

Hope my mom isn’t peeking.

Meet today’s card, which is for her. 🙂


The “arrgh” and skull and crossbones are by the talented Kim Hughes and are from her stamp collection over at Cornish Heritage Farms. The “another birthday” is from A Muse Artstamps.

The patterned papers are from Pink Paislee and American Crafts.

I also want to share a little peek with you.

This week, Paper Crafts magazine is promoting the new “PC Gourmet” idea book This is a kickin’ book that will be out very, very, very soon, and I’ve been invited to share a peek recipe and project from the book here.

First, here’s a yummy recipe for Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits by Alisa Bangerter.

This is a perfect recipe to pull out if you are short on time because there is no rolling or cutting. The cheese and garlic add extra kick to a plain biscuit, and kids love them. They are the perfect accompaniment to serve with soups or stews, and are great served with a salad.

You will need:

2 c. flour

2 tbsp. granulated sugar

4 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2/3 c. butter or margarine

1 1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese

1 1/4 c. milk

Chives (optional)

Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in butter with pastry cutter until mixture is fine. Add cheese and mix well. Add milk and stir until just moistened. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Sprinkle top with chopped dried or fresh chives if desired. Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 15 minutes.

And here is a Halloween tag, which Alisa designed to go with the biscuits.
