Somehow I let my subscription to Donna Hay magazine lapse
By the time I realized it,
I had missed out on the newest issue.
I'm totally bummed
and will have to go to the bookstore to see if I can find it.
In the meantime I renewed my subscription,
but its taking a forever to get here from Australia
Sooo... I went on over to Amazon to see what I could find
(I love that store!)
I found this wonderful cookbook from Donna Hay!
So I bought it
because I've really been very impatient
to do my cook-up with Dzintra
I found a delicious recipe in the new book!
Ready-ing all the ingredients...
Fresh Corriander (cilantro) from my garden!
Pad Thai Rice Noodles
with chili peanut sauce
Chicken simmering in the sticky sauce
Here's Donna Hay's photo of the dish...
And here's mine...
Looks delicious, doesn't it!?
I ate way too much
(I can feel the chub attached to my hips as I type)
I love Donna Hay
I hope this doesn't offend anyone,
but to me, she's kinda like Martha Stewart is the US
Is that bad to say?
I love her style
Its classy, but down-home,
and the photos are as delicious looking as the food tastes
I've hatched a new project for myself...
I've been creating a recipe book for myself
...and another one for my little Sophia.
To keep all my favorite recipes in, and
I'm hoping that one day she'll like having my recipes too
...like I love having my grandmother's recipes
She may not realize it until later...
But in the meantime, I'll have fun making the books
They're both in the style of True Colors,
(a collaborative art journal produced by Somerset Studios)
I found this unique little binder at the flea market
...so here's what I've been doing with it...
(slowly... as I have time)
The pages have pockets where my recipes slide in and out
When the binder is open,
it sits up on its own self-contained stand.
Isn't it fun?
And here's Sophie's Recipe Book
I'm not as far along with hers,
but I figure I have a little time...
she's only 2...
Here she is...
super serious about mixing those cookies!
and wearing her little apron I made for her 1st Birthday
I wonder if she'll have favorite dishes that her Nami makes...
Can't wait to find out!
