Cute DINNERTIME recipe book

In April, I made a recipe book for meals to match my cute recipe book that I posted about here. I made one for myself and my two sisters. My younger sister's and my books have a darker colour scheme (the first picture in each set)but I made a lighter, more pastel one for my eldest sister. I divided it into 5 sections.....
(I struggled with making something looking like pasta, until Ella suggested pasta in a jar...Thanks Ella)

Light meals
(for things like homemade pizza, quiche, fajitas...all those meals that are good for summer)

Warming Dishes
(casseroles and yummy winter food)

Meat Dishes
(for marinated meat, roasts etc)

and Soups and Side Dishes which is pretty self-explanatory.

I've yet to make the fabric covers but I was going to label it Dinnertime Favourites rather than Sweet Favourites.

Comments make me happy. Spread the love.

Get to know me

  • I love the smell of cinnamon and vanilla.
  • My favourite flowers are daisies.
  • My favourite trees are pine trees.
  • I always like to have the bickie jar full and a cake on the cake stand. I know...not that healthy, but so good to look at.
  • Autumn is my favourite month, although I do wish we had more of a change of colours up here in Queensland.
  • I love Anne of Green Gables and Laura Ingalls Wilder. They started my love affair with "old-fashioned" stuff.
  • I'm a boots and jeans kind of girl, but also love vintage skirts and dresses.
  • I like sewing and am in love with quilts at the moment.
  • I love reading. (I have a weakness for archeological thrillers and historical romances, but not Mills and Boon-type ones.)
  • I love old houses with character. No new estate houses for me. (Sorry Rosie.)
  • I love vintage/cottage/farmhouse decorating and pretty pinks and blues, with a splash of red for colour.
  • Polka dots can make me sigh with delight.
  • I have 4 chooks. They are MY pets. Another tick on my dream-come-true chart.
  • I don't eat dessert much any more. I'm not dieting, I just don't want it. (Does that mean I'm growing up if I say no to an icecream cone?)
  • I'll still always say yes to chocolate though!
  • I like to sit on the front stairs in the sun, to drink my morning cup of tea, while I contemplate what to do in the garden.
  • I've got the gardening bug again recently. It comes and goes with the weather. I'm envisioning cottage flowers in pink, blue and white to go with my green picket fence.
