Baking Day

Hi Guys!
Well to hop off the new term at Pumpkin Spice we are having a HOP!
The theme is:
Showing Our Style
I'm not sure how I would define "my style" (suggestions are welcome) but I guess you could say there's always (or very likely) certain elements you'll  find in my projects.
1) Pencils
2) Kraft
3) Stitching
4) Quiltlike paper assembly
5) Twine
6) Buttons or Brads
Of course in this work in progress you should also find recipes!

I am using papers by MME (Honeycake)
Images: Mo Manning and TLC
Twine in "Marachino" : Pumpkin Spice

The recipes up close. And they're pretty stinkin yummy too.
You gotta love quiche. The variations are endless!

And baked beans below:
Pssst) The first time I made my hubby Boston Baked Beans he just about threw up. It totally was NOT what he was expecting. Being English, he was used to tomato based beans, not sweet molasses beans. lol Over the last 18 years he's got a bit more used to them but I also have toned down the sugar a wee bit. Add more onions, herbs etc.
Ideally (if you're not worried about a stroke or anything) baked beans are best eaten with fried dough dripping with butter.

I can't tell you how happy it made me coloring that pig. I was in "hog heaven." 
No one enjoys their food like a pig. Unless of course its my overweight orange tom cat. (The Incredible Bulk)
But look at him! Isn't it great?

So now its time to get hopping!
You should have come here from Lezley's blog. If you get lost head back to Pumpkin Spice and start again.
Now its time to hop on lover to lovely Courtney's  blog where I just know she'll have some awesome eye candy for you!
