Autumn Flower Recipe Collection

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

This week I have for you a four page collection of Autumn Flower Recipe Cards. This came about in a phone conversation I had with my sister-in-law, Sandra. During our conversation, we thought it would be fun to create a family recipe book this fall for all the family.

The cards are sized 8.033 x 6.067 inches. I left them big in case anyone would like to use them for a friend or family member who has a hard time reading small print. Of course they can always be resized smaller if you prefer a smaller card.

The font size in my Salsa de Chile Rojo Recipe is as follows; (Recipe for, Serves, From the Kitchen of) 18 pt (Ingredients, Instructions) 12 pt. The large sized card gives plenty of room for the larger recipes that require a smaller font size.

This morning you can download the recipe for my Salsa de Chile Rojo (see below). I will offer the blank recipe cards throughout the rest of the week, one per day.

If you enjoy spicy Spanish food, give this recipe a try. Warning: This is spicy! We love heat over here so if you prefer mild Spanish food, you will need to adjust the spice according to what you like best (Sandra-last time I made this since kids were eating it also, believe it or not I really cut back on the spice). We usually serve it over white rice but it can be served over just about anything. If you do decide to give it a try, let me know what you think. I hope you really like it.

Ok Sandra, here’s my first recipe for the recipe book. Now we need one from you (wink, wink). How about Brett’s oh so yummy taco’s or Miriam’s spanish rice?

Ooooh, does anyone want to participate in a recipe exchange? If interested, let me know and I’ll set up an area to exchange recipes at. I'm hosting a recipe exchange in our multiples forum and would love to host one here too. I love sharing my recipes and trying new ones from around the country/world.

Happy Scrapping!

The cards are wonderful and I love the size of them. You mention the size of the font used but not what the actual font is. Could you please let me know what font you use for the headings (Recipe for etc) and the font used for the actual recipe?

Thanks for sharing - I may be brave enough to try your recipe! LOL I do love spicey but sometimes the tummy doesn't.

Oops I forgot to ask - do you think we could have the blank recipe cards in layered psd format? I would like the main recipe part to be separate in case I want to make some different backgrounds as well.

You are so considerate to keep the size large for sight impaired people. I really appreciate it. I would be happy to join your recipe exchange...I have some great ones.
