Hello dear readers. How are you? Me? I am alive and wonderfully well. You may have been wondering where I have been. Let's see...I have been enjoying this fine weather we are having and getting my yard and garden ready for the warm season. I have been traveling around Northern Illinois for soccer games. I have been cleaning the house and putting away winter things (I wish for good, especially after that little bit of snow on May 16th?!?) and dusting off summer toys. I have been enjoying time with my husband (sans kiddos) on long weekend bike rides and lunch dates. And like always, I have been busy in the kitchen making food for my family and for cupcake lovers☺. But what I have not been doing is posting here. I'm sorry, I just haven't had my bloggin' britches on. To me, blogging is about quality and not necessarily about quantity. I don't want to just throw out a post and recipe. I want my heart, soul, and my passion for food to be in each and every one. Having said that...a long holiday weekend is ahead, so I want to share a few good eats from the archives that would be perfect for the weekend and all summer long. Have a safe and wonderful weekend. Now I gotta go find my britches!
