Splendid Recipes and More Was Awarded

I love food… I love cooking… I find baking therapeutic. That’s what Mrs. Choux at Box of Recipes has to say about cooking and baking. Don’t we all, those of us who enjoy being in the kitchen find cooking a stress reliever or therapeutic as Mrs. Choux puts it?

She goes on to say, “For me, food is more than substance vital for survival. It can be uplifting, sensual, comforting, celebratory and quite often pivotal in bringing people together. It doesn’t matter where in the world you come from, because everyone understands the language of food.”

Wow, well said, cooking and sharing our prepared food creations with others is such a joy. Who doesn’t want to feel good, and make others happy in the process?

I even like her logo, Mrs. Choux has great recipes in that little box.

She describes that box as a collection of recipes she spent more than half her life collecting, and says watch as it jumps out (the recipe) of my recipe box and into this blog (her blog) for everyone to use. Read the rest of her story here:  About The Recipe Box

Frosting for bread as follows: Whisk together 1 cup powdered sugar, 8 oz. soft cream cheese and 1 tsp. vanilla. Spread over cooled bread. Reserve some cream cheese to decorate carrots on top. Use orange and green food coloring and a pastry bag. Orange is for the carrot and green for the leaf.
