I love your recipes. I have been printing them out at different times. I also love the cute graphics you use on some of the recipes. I was hoping you could make a cute pdf to use as a cover for a recipe binder. A size 8 1/2 X 11 would be great. Then we could get a binder with a clear front and just slide the cover in and "presto" darling recipe binder! Your so great! Thanks for all you do!

I created a Food Storage Organizer with tabs for Food Storage Recipes, Preserve It ... Canning Corner Recipes and FHE Recipes. Here's the LINK:

You can use one or all of them!
Hope that helps!

Amazing! I have been making pumpkin pies and tarts all weekend. I had some left over filling and started looking for a new recipe to use it up. The pecan crust and the pecan crumble on top is so perfect! And easy!Thanks for sharing :)
