Tonight I would like to present this fabulous kit that Michelle Wooderson has created! Well actually two kits - first there is the recipe box and secondly is the add-on kit of the clipboard and notebook. I am so thrilled to finally have these ready!
Being that I love to cook this is one project that I can see myself making for my girls or perhaps even with them. Passing down recipes through the generations is something that really appeals to me. When I left home after college I spent hours pouring through my mom's recipe books, copying out my favorite recipes on to note cards, scratch paper and what not. To this day I have not truly organized all those fabulous recipes. I think it is due time!!!
This ensemble that Mish has created would make a wonderful send-off gift for your child as they head out on their own adventures in life. It could be something that you create and add to over the years as you teach them to cook. Perhaps when they have learned to make a recipe they could then add it to their box. Or you could create a special box for a grandchild - what an incredibly special gift that would be! I know that my girls love my mom's cookies and baked goods. They always tell me what an amazing cook grandma is and it just warms my heart. They miss living close to grandma so they can eat her wonderful cooking! So I know that all of those recipes will be added to their box some day.
The "main ingredients" for the entire ensemble are included in the primary kit - the recipe box kit. It will include all the letters, brads, eyelets, ribbon, etc. that will be needed to complete the add-on projects. Mish then created another pair of items to use up the remaining ingredients to flesh out this wonderful little ensemble. I would highly encourage you to get the add-on kit now as well if it interests you being there are a limited supply.
Please be aware that the add-on kit. the clipboard and notebook, do not include the items listed above, so it would make no sense to purchase those items without the recipe box kit. We were trying to figure out how to package this to give you the best value for your dollar. Hopefully this will meet everyone's needs. So pop on over to our pick up your kits now.
In completing tonight's post I thought I would share one of my mom's fabulous recipes with you - it is absolutely delicious!!!
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 3 tbsp. cocoa
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Beat eggs, add sugar and vanilla. Beat until thick. Mix cocoa with melted butter, add flour and nuts. Grease 9"x12" pan and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and spread icing mixture over top of cake.
- 5 tbsp. brown sugar
- 3 tbsp. butter
- 2 tbsp. cream
Boil for three minutes, then add 1/2 cup coconut. Spread over top of baked fudge squares. Allow to cool.
Return to oven and set under broiler watching closely. As soon as the topping begins to bubble and brown remove from the oven. My mom recommends standing and watching it so that you don't burn it Ü
ETA: I am so thrilled - my mom, who is now 77 has just started using a computer!!! She is reading my blog and I am SO excited. She called me today when she saw the recipe I posted. I can't believe I missed that last part about putting the recipe under the broiler. Thanks mom! Can you tell I don't have enough time to bake lately?!?! These are indeed the most scrumptious treats!
