Sugar Creek Hollow vintage recipe challenge

It is Saturday and we have a really fun challenge for you at Sugar Creek Hollow this week. We want to see a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper-crafted project that features a RECIPE CARD. The recipe card can be shown either on the front or inside your project and the recipe itself should be a family favorite that has been passed down over the years.

If your recipe isn't easily read from the photo of your project, then we would ask that you detail it in your post. It would also be great if you could show a photo of the finished recipe. Your recipe can be of any type and we would love to hear the story behind it. Soon your family's favorite could become someone else's family favorite so thanks for sharing.

This week one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Don't forget, we also have Christmas Blog Candy for one lucky winner to be chosen from our challenge entries between now and Christmas Eve.

Okay,  now's the time I ask for your pity!  I don't have any
family recipes.  My family doesn't cook.  Not my mom...not my 
grandma...I grew up on Banquet pot pies and Salisbury Steak.
I however, absolutely love to cook and have taught myself, 
with the help of Food Network how to be a really wonderful cook.

The recipe I've chosen to share is for Prime Rib Soup.
About 10 years ago my husband and I started making soup out
of our left over Prime Rib.  We pieced together several on-line 
recipes until we came up with what was "perfection" for our
family's taste.

I have to admit that most of the time we don't use
Prime Rib in this soup.  Throughout the year it's kind of
expensive to make each time my kids ask for it so we use
"whatever" we have on hand.  When you simmer it long enough
any meat will become tender.

A couple of things we add depending on our mood are
some diced potatoes or tomatoes.  Both are wonderful.
Just adjust veggies to your family's tastes.

Here are the ingredients...

and here are the cooking instructions. (SO EASY)

I'd love to hear your feedback if you try it.  It's a 
favorite in our house!  Our only problem is my husband 
prefers noodles and I like the barley!  I know...such drama!

Happy Holidays everyone!!

I love the story behind your recipe and I can't wait to try it. I know I have the tail end of a prime rib roast from 2 weeks ago tucked away in my freezer. Your card is fabulous and showcases the recipe beautifully.

The soup looks so yummy, I just love soup in the winter. Your recipe card is just beautiful, love the lace and the fantastic swirl on the side, I think I have the same swirl.

Super delish recipe!!! I cannot wait to make this. I always need something I can put in my slow cooker for Sunday's and this would be perfect. Lovely card to compliment as well.

Renee, this looks so good. We love noodles and any kind of soup. I will be sure to let you know when we try this. Love the onion and carrots on your card and the handwritten recipe is so special. Have a great weekend.
