Cookin’ At CHA!


I'm getting ready to go to CHA tomorrow but before I go, I wanted to share some goodies. I was recently asked to create a few samples for CHA using Cookbookin's new line of cooking papers. Here are a few of my creations:





So since I haven't been posting my Five Fridays as usual I figure I'd make up for it with a giveaway! Just leave a comment here about the cooking traditions your family has and I'll pick one name on Feb 1, 2009 as the winner! What do you get? Well, you get Cookbookin's Spice It Up Recipe Scrapbooking Kit! This is the one I used on my herb garden page. PLUS you'll get one pack of the coordinating Appetizing Accents dimensional stickers.


Also, check back all week because I will be posting links to my CHA photos EVERY DAY of the show so you won't want to miss that!

It started with jewelry, beading, sewing, home decor, painting, basket weaving, pottery, and cross-stitch. Marry that to an entrepreneurial spirit & at 9 years old a girl is selling her wares at craft fairs as far as her parents and grandparents would drive her. These days, Jennifer enjoys crafts of all genres from sewing to scrapbooking to jewelry with a little dabbling in the mixed media world. Her style is approachable and she wants everyone who sees her work to feel that they too can embrace creativity and make their home and life beautiful.

  3. Hi Jennifer~

    I love all the inspiration you share with all of us blog readers. Our cooking family tradition: the kids get to plan & prepare dinner once a week.

  4. Jennifer-
    First things first. CONGRATULATIONS on your win. It was exciting to be a part of it. And you DESERVE it girl. I LOVE that kit. Didn’t get to take the class with you but you hand delivered it to me with all the other class kits at the Prima Class with Donna Salazar. That was so much fun and I finally got to meet you!! I still think you have the most helpful scrapbooking website. You give us the bones of it all. And everyone needs all that excellent information. I’m more organized because of you.

    OK, now for the traditions. We have so many with such a large family. But we do have a big
    Sunday dinner every week with as many of the family as can come and everyone contributes to the meal. And pancakes for Saturday breakfast. And about every month to six weeks one of our daughter and her family and us go to IHOP for breakfast. And I make a video with each of my grandchildren (we have 32 so far) of each child and “Nann” cooking some fun thing together. The grandkids TREASURE these videos. And last summer we
    had our first “sister” cookoff (we have seven) with orange rolls. And the sister who actually cooks the least won—hands down. This year we are having a pizza cookoff. Its the weekend of July 4th, which we always celebrate with a huge BBQ and of course Homemade IceCream. I could keep going but I’m sure you’re getting tired of reading all this. However you DID ask so there you are. NJ

  6. Hey Jennifer,

    As usual you your ideas are gorgeous! You are so lucky to be at CHA! Our family tradition is we have a big potluck dinner on Christmas eve at one family’s house and we open presents from each other at midnight! Each family brings a couple of their special dishes to share!

  7. Hey Jennifer. I really like that cooking line. We always make the same thing on Christmas morning for breakfast. That is our biggest tradition. Little Jacob has really been loving to help cook lately too and I love that.
    Thanks for the pins you left for me. Have fun at CHA, wish I could go.
    Have a great day.

  12. Jen,I loved your beatiful cookin’ pages. My family tradition is the holidays. Cooking homecooked meals and having everyone around the table eating and talking. Your scrapbook pages remind me of those time together with my family and the special times we’ve shared.

  14. Jen – great give-a-way!
    Family cooking tradition brings a warm feeling to my heart. My Mom was the “bestest” cook ever! Oh how I miss her since she went to Heaven to be with our Lord.

    Three things:
    We used to wake up to that wonderful smell of pies baking in the morning before school! Yummo!

    We were a pasta on Sunday family. My mom made the best homemade spaghetti sauce – I wish I had some right now!

    The “bestest”:
    We were a meat, potato and dessert family every night! My dad worked hard to support his family and every night we all sat down for supper at 4:30pm as a family, talked about our days and really, really loved each other.

    I was and am so blessed!

    Thanks for letting me share!
