Smash Book Recipes

Hi Blogging Beauties,

Have you heard about Smash Bookin'??
Smash Bookin is kind of like scrap booking but it can be messy and doesnt have to be a perfect page...hence no pressure for each page to be a masterpiece.  This suits me.  

There is a free group organised by Suzanne Dean here.  It is full of monthly challenges, conversations and inspiration.  I have decided to make my Smash book into a Recipe Book.  I dont have the proper "Smash Book" I am just using an old photo album and collecting my favourite tried and true recipes and dinner ideas.  I just wanted a place to have all my favourite recipes in one place.  I have done four pages so far.  

The top recipe is a delicious and rich slice.  Still three pieces left in the fridge...if you like chocolate and turkish delight give this one a try!

Second one is a vegetarian curry.  Delicious, but I recommend cutting the curry back a lot as it was way too hot for Ben and I.

Third one is a quick and easy, yummy meal.  Could be a salad at a shared dinner or lunch...but we had it as an evening meal on its own.

Last one is a quick and easy chicken recipe.

My Recipe Smash Book idea doesn't really fit into this month's challenge, but I am just linking it up here to share what I have done with the group. 

Thank for visiting.

I have been saving recipes pretty much that way for years. OK the pages are not decorated at all! Just snip and glue and put into a 3 ring binder. I go to it BEFORE the big fancy cookbook. I like the tried and true. Those chocolate bars look devine!

Your pages look great and some yummy sounding recipes there too. What a fantastic version of scrap booking. Might be what I need. I really want to scrap my sons school years....just have to get started.
