It won’t come as any surprise that my favorite set from the new Occasions Mini Catalog is “Eat Chocolate” and here is the card I created for the Stitched Stampers Occasions Mini Swap (inspired by a Mojo Monday sketch):
I added a little Crystal Effects on the chocolate and now it looks good enough to eat!
Now if you are a local (Utah County)…have you tried “The Chocolate” (a dessert cafe) in Orem? We just discovered it a few months ago and I can definitely recommend skipping dinner and just going for dessert…
And since we are chatting about chocolate, may I recommend a good book?
This is a wonderful new cookbook by Annette Lyon (who also writes LDS Fiction) and I can say that she really makes chocolate fun! I got to visit with her when she came to sign books a few months ago in our Deseret Book Store (where I have worked for 5 years) and I was so excited when this came out!
My Great-Grandmother Charlotte Jane Cole Grey’s biography was titled “I’d Rather Read a Recipe Than A Book”. I think the fact that I like to read recipes AND books comes from both Charlotte and Montrue, her daughter (my Grandma) who worked for years at the Dixie College bookstore… the love of books & cooking run in the family!
