Here’s a super-simple desert for the 4th of July—Patriotic Brownies! Everyone loves brownies and these are even more yummy because they’re topped with frosting and fresh strawberries and blueberries! The brownies are from a mix with chocolate chips and chopped walnuts (or pecans) added in. Or, you can make your favorite homemade brownie recipe. Likewise, these are frosted with ready-made frosting, but you can use your favorite homemade vanilla or cream cheese frosting recipe instead!Continue reading
One thing I like about these Fruit-Topped Sugar Cookies is how pretty they are! They just have the look of spring and summer with all that luscious fresh fruit on top of sweet, creamy frosting! And another thing I love is how easy they are to make! Continue reading
Fruit salad is so good and refreshing during the hot summer months! And this Rainbow Fruit Salad is so colorful, it’s a feast for the eyes! I actually made this fruit arrangement for a photo I did for Mary & Martha back in early spring, which was used on a recipe card. The fruit is arranged on the Done in Love Serving Board and the Vanilla Pudding Dip, a recipe from a Mary & Martha consultant, is served in one of the Simply Elegant Dip Bowls, which comes in a set of 3. I really love these little bowls! Continue reading
I love those Malted Milk Speckled Eggs…they are my favorite Easter candy (and those Cadbury Creme Eggs are a close second)! I buy them every year and eat way too many of them! One year, I found a Robin’s Egg Blue teacup at a flea market and thought it would make a great candy dish for my speckled eggs—I still use it for that! I love the way the pretty pastel speckled eggs look nestled inside the blue teacup. Maybe you’ll be able to use this idea for your own Easter candy!
It’s fun using teacups for other uses in addition to drinking tea. I’ve been to tea rooms with friends where they serve soup in teacups–isn’t that a great idea? If you’re a teacup collector, it’s a great way to use your teacups more often! 🙂
Hope you are enjoying all your Easter and springtime goodies! What’s your favorite Easter treat?
Take a look at these really cute cupcakes my friend Ann made! She actually made these a few years ago, and I had the easy part–I just took the pictures! 🙂 Ann used some fun Continue reading
