Can you believe it's the middle June already!! If you are like me, you might think it's too hot inside to cook. We do a lot of grilling, not only in the summer, but all year, too. My husband has been know to shovel snow just to get to the grill.
I spend way too much searching for new recipes on Pinterest. It's nice to have something new to eat and when I find one that the family likes, I make a 4x6 card for my recipe box. My girls will even send me their newest favorite so that I can make a card for them, too.
This month, Liz release another new set of cards and also 8.5x11 pages.
While on Pinterest, I found a new recipe for Chicken Tacos that looked good. Then I realized that I needed another recipe for the salsa and a third recipe for the spicy rub to marinate the chicken in. I'll admit that it took me all afternoon to make all three, but the end results was delicious!
Here are the cards that I made. I've credited the original poster on the cards.

I hope you like them. I used this kit - http://the-lilypad.com/store/From-Scratch-Bundle.html
I also wanted to share with you some photos of my son-in-law's grandmother on Mother's Day. He asked me if I would take some pictures and make a cookbook for her as a gift. The recipe was one that she and their whole family make every Christmas. How could I say no! I spent 2 days watching the 7 grandchildren trying to make pierogies the way Mimi did. They did a wonderful job and the book turned out pretty good, too. Oh, and Mimi loved her new cookbook.
Here is Mimi opening up to the first page.
That's all I have for this month. Don't forget to share your full resolution recipe cards in the SWL Group on Facebook in the 2016 Recipe Pages and Cards album. I'm looking forward to seeing your recipes.
Until next time,
