Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

When our brief-but-glorious strawberry season hits, I try to make the most of it.  As luck would have it, we were recently asked to bring a dessert to a barbeque, and I was on my first crate of berries.  After a drool-filled Pinterest session, I came away with a winning recipe for Cheesecake Sugar Cookie…

Friday Favorites–Memorial Day Weekend Munchies

Are you ready for the long weekend?  We have a lot planned, with friends and family joining us at home on a couple of the days and my nephew’s wedding to attend.  I’m hoping for some cooperative weather, and so far that’s looking promising.  Yesterday was all about menu planning and shopping, so I think…

Friday Favorites–Trick or Eat

There’s an awful lot of pressure when Halloween doesn’t fall on a school night.  What to do?  Where to go?  And, the big one, what to eat?  It’s just my husband and I this year, and for once he doesn’t work, so we tried to plan some quiet fun at home.  We got as far…

Friday Favorites–Raspberries

Before I get into my favorites this week, I have to tell you about something exciting!  I’ve been a big Craft Gossip fan for years. They’ve featured many of my projects, for which I’m eternally grateful. I also enjoy seeing the fun things they find elsewhere. So, you can imagine how happy I was when Katie…
