Hot, Hot, Hot! Cookbook with Spicy Recipes

I have been working on this little cookbook for awhile now and just got it finished so I thought I would share it with you.  There are lots of pictures (however this is not all of the pages) so grab yourself a cup of coffee or tea and sit back and scroll down to see my creations for today.  This was made  as a give away item for my sister.  She is a principal and loves to give my creations as Kudos for her teachers to let them know she appreciates what they do.  I have included my family's favorite spicy recipes. 
All of the papers and embellishments I have used are either very old or from my scrapbox, so I have no idea who they are made by.  I thought they just looked cook booky!  LOL 
I thought I would just be sharing today without entering a challenge, however when I got finished with it I found it fit the following challenges:
 No die cuts, cuttlebugs, sizzix, nesties, etc.. Just scissors and paper cutter.  I have embraces my scissors and paper cutter in making this.   
Inspirational picture.  I know the picture shows sweets, but I chose to use the color combo.  Hope it's ok
Hot, Hot, Hot...I've used hot colors and a hot topic...LOL

Sorry about the blurry pictures.  Some days my hands just shake...
Don't ya just love those chili peppers.  They are colored with my copic markers
The label is computer generated.  Don't ya just love that font with the little flames and my hand drawn flames at the bottom.  This was a really fun project.  The whole thing is made from scratch.  No notebook.  I covered my own chipboard and just went with the flow... LOL

Super cool project!
I am very happy that I had lunch just a few minutes ago, so I don't starve while looking at your recipe pages ;-) But they make me a little bit hungry again - and five minutes ago I thought I couldn't eat anything more.
The flames and the chili peppers are fantastic.
