Gifts Galore Blog Hop Day 5 And My Day

First off my apologies for missing yesterday's blog.
I am so busy at work that I have been doing my posts after hours in the comfort of my easy chair. However, last night our internet was down. We live in a small town so I do not have the luxury of having internet access in a multitude of local coffee shops/cafés.
So you will just have to imagine that I blogged.
Now on with today's blog.

Today is the last day of the Gifts Galore blog hop and also my day to post my block and recipe.
These three Moda designer will also be blogging, Hop on over to their blogs to see what they have to offer.

Basic Grey ~ Jen Williamson

Jan Patek Quilts ~ Jan Patek

American Jane ~ Sandy Klop

I chose the Honey Bee block...my favorite quilt block.
I forgot my recipe book the day that the recipes were due so I just sent Lissa this one as a joke. I sent her my real recipe the next day. Well nobody likes a joke better than Moda Lissa so she printed this one instead.


Click here to download and print.

I would not want you to be cheated out of a recipe so here is my real recipe.

Baklava - one of my favorite sweets.

Ingredients

1 (16 oz.) package phyllo dough

1 pound chopped nuts

1 C. butter

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 C. water

1 C. sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 C. honey

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter the bottoms and side of a 9 X 13 pan.

Chop nuts and toss with cinnamon. Set aside.

Unroll phyllo dough.

Cut whole stack in half to fit pan.

Cover phyllo with a dampened cloth to keep it from drying out as you work.

Place two sheets of dough in pan, butter thoroughly.

Repeat until you have 8 sheets layered.

Sprinkle 2-3 Tablespoons of nut mixture on top.

Top with two sheets of dough, butter, nuts, layering as you go.

The top layer should be about 6-8 sheets deep.

Using a sharp knife cut into 4 long rows, then cut rows into diamond shapes.

Bake for about 50 minutes until baklava is golden and crisp.

While Baklava is baking.

Boil sugar and water until sugar is melted.

And vanilla and honey.

Simmer for about 20 minutes.

When Baklava is done remove from oven and immediately spoon sauce over it.

Let cool.

Serve in cupcake papers.

And it this would not be a Moda blog hop without a give away.


By now most of you know that I love glasses - the funkier the better.

I have found some pictures of glasses that are even a bit odd for me to wear.




Not your typical Grandma Glasses.

These would be for a crabby day.

To scary - remind me of bug legs.


Fancy schmancy.

Sunglasses or moonglasses?

Maybe if I were an avid deer hunter.
Every evening we have deer stroll though our yard.
What do you suppose the deer would think
if they saw me watching
them while wearing these glasses???

And last but not least this would not be a Moda blog hop without a give away.

Yesterday I received a big Moda box filled with my 2012 Christmas fabric.

Yes, just in time for Christmas!



I have named this line Merry Medley.

You have until Sunday December 12th at 11:00 PM to leave a comment on this post to be eligible to win a Layer Cake of this line. I will post the winner on Tuesday.

If you are a shop owner your Moda rep will be showing you this new line -and many other lines in January. If you are a fabric collector this fabric will be in quilt shops in July.

May you always see clearly.

From my heart,

Sandy

  185. Hi Sandy,
    My first response when I saw the picture of your new fabric line was "OMG...she designed this just for ME!" I have always loved paisley and my favorite color combo is reds and greens! It's really gorgeous!
    My next response was "I have to wait till July?" Oh dear. I hope I can wait! ;-) I'm not a patient person! :-(
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  190. I love your recipe on your Moda card, especially number 9, "serve with guilt free confidence!" I have to admit, there were times when when I was a Mom, student, and held a full-time job that when I was asked to supply cookies for a bake sale that I went to a bakery and put them on my own tray - with no guilt! The best was going to the store and finding the packge of flour tortillas that had burnt spots and were misshappen, wrapping them in foil and just saying thank you when someone raved about how good they were. Well, they were good tortillas! Please enter me into the drawing for your new layer cake, it would make a wonderful quilt. I'm now a grandma working full-time and love the precuts; what a fun way to make a quick quilt that alway comes out GREAT!
