Cooking

So it was a very busy weekend, I was off to Kelowna and left the hubby at home to fend for himself. While I was there I made my uncle dinner and treated him to this amazing recipe. They are phyllo pastry filled with Camembert cheese and walnuts and on the side a cranberry sauce. All I can say is AMAZING. For those who know me well, I really don’t like to cook, but these are simple to make and are so worth it. So tonight I am making them again. I thought I would share the recipe, you will love them.

200 grams Camembert cheese
100 grams walnuts
Chives
Lemon and zest
4 sheets phyllo pastry

Blend cheese, walnuts chives and lemon zest together in blender, lay out you pastry and fill it with the cheese mixture.
I bake these about 15 min at 350* they will be nice and golden

To make the cranberry sauce use about 1/2 cup dried cranberries, add some flavourful spices, cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger and cloves, add some water or wine and simmer . Serve this with salad include grapes, dried cranberries, mandarin orange, apple, grapes and a fruity vinaigrette.

Altered Boxes

So I am getting ready to head to Vernon next week for a baby shower. I have been making the gift, but the people are on Facebook so I can’t post any pictures of it until after the shower. I wanted to show you a project I worked on today.

This is the first time I have done anything like this but I think they turned out well.
I got these tea boxes, painted them up and decoupaged on some of my favourite paper. This is the Ladies Diary line from Graphic 45. I used my Cricut to cut out the flowers and butterflies. I used both the Artist and Art Philosophy cartridges from Close to My Heart. I do have to add I was inspired for this by my friend Kelly!

Filled with tea, I think they make a great gift.
