A Sweet Card and a Sweet Dessert

When you make someone a hand made card
it causes them to feel much like
making them a home cooked meal.
At least that is what I've been told... and I have to say I agree!

Just think of the time and effort which goes into
someone creating something with their own two hands
just for you.

THAT is how you say, "You're special to me."

My daughter's art teacher and basketball coach
are pretty special to her.
This past week, her art teacher experienced a
surgery that had her out for a few days.
So we decided to make her a few things and
hopefully cause that "special feeling" I'm talking about.

My daughter made the adorably cute card above.
I just love how she paired the
"Morning Cup" and Occasions Alphabet" together!
When I am feeling under the weather,
nothing soothes me like a warm cup of
cocoa or spiced cider.

And I decided to take the family a home cooked meal
complete with one of my absolute favorite desserts...

This Greek pastry usually calls for about
THREE POUNDS of ingredients...
I have mastered how to create
Kataife for ONE.
Would you like the recipe?

Kataife for ONE
one bar of shredded wheat
2 TBsp butter, melted (has to be butter)
pecans, chopped

Place wheat bar in an oven safe dish.
Pour 1/2 butter over bar.
Sprinkle with cinnamon, sugar, and pecans.
Pour remaining butter over bar.
Bake for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

I know it sounds crazy to heat the oven for
just one bar of Kataife.
I make up my Kataife for ONE when I already
have my oven heated for other things.
Just pop it in beside dinner and...
warm yumminess on a fall evening...
with a cup of spiced cider...
oh ya!

Warm blessings!
