top 10 [new] favorite recipes

Top Ten {Tuesday}

My husband describes it as some sort of mid-life crisis. I say my new found love for cooking/baking is because after a year and a half, my husband is home seven nights a week rather than three. I actually have someone to cook for!

I've been making new recipes almost every night, so I thought I'd share a few of my favorites, in no particular order:


(sorry for the photo quality, some are mobile photos)

1. Chili Lime Chicken Tostadas

2. Best Basic Brownie

(just a tip on these, don't put M&Ms in them if you want them to look pretty. trust me.)

3. Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta

4. Pasta with Tomato-Bleu Cheese Sauce

hey, I never said these were healthy recipes


5. Granny's Chocolate Cobbler


6. Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

7. Crockpot Lasagna

8. The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

9. Zesty Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

And for #10...

With all this recipe searching I knew it was a perfect excuse to find a spiffy new method for organizing them. My little box just wasn't cutting it. My new Cath Kidston Recipe Organizer arrived in the mail today! Here are a few peeks at the inside...

i'm in a book!

I was delighted when Charlotte Rivers from Roto Vision in the UK asked me to be included in the book, Reinventing Letterpress. It's a book that features numerous letterpress companies as well as general information about the letterpress printing process.

You can purchase the UK version here. Or, you can pre-order the US version, to be released by Chronicle books under the name Little Book of Letterpress. Here are a few pictures of the book:
