Egg-citing news!



My illustrated recipe Spiked Crepes with Cinnamon Apples turned up last Thursday on the fun blog http://www.theydrawandcook.blogspot.com/ Or for a direct link try www.theydrawandcook.com/2010/12/spiked-crepes-with-cinnamon-apples-by.html#comments There's a holiday contest going on. So it's definitely a fun time to visit. 250 artists sent in illustrated recipes that will be posted through the month of December. And there are prizes at the end of the month. I really had a lot of fun illustrating this piece. Everyone seems to have a favorite mouse. Mine is the one wielding the peeler. The tough part of the illustration was condensing the crepe recipe so that I could fit it on the two cards. Nate, the blog author said he's already made the recipe twice. I made it Thanksgiving morning. And do you know what I did? I forgot the brown sugar. So I scooped the apples back out of the crepes and back in the pan they went. Eventually breakfast tasted much sweeter. Yum!

I like the one in the apron. Poor white mouse overdid it, didn't he? :-)

I like the title of your post 'eggs-citing news', and I love everything about your picture. The three mice are very cute , especially the one looking at the written recipe ( what a look!). Best of Luck in the contest!

I was thinking how nice and cute the illustrated recipe was, I read DJan's comment and saw that little white mouse in a whole different light...it made me laugh!
The recipe sounds wonderful!

What an adorable illustration, fabulous job Sharon. Maybe the little white mouse got into the "spiked" part of the recipe.

The recipe sounds delicious, I going to have to try that one.
