Pina Colada Dip

Pin It

I kind of feel like I want to break out in song "If you like pina coladas" but I won't - I'm not one who can carry a tune!  But I do want to sing praises for this Pina Colada Dip.  It only has 4 ingredients, comes together in 5 minutes and is soooo good.

Flower Power Cookies

Whew, the weekend is over!  It was busy, busy as I mentioned a couple days ago I was helping a friend with her daughter's wedding at their house.  It was a beautiful affair - from the weather to the event.  Everything went off without a hitch!  In addition to being a wedding helper, I also made cookies.  What could be better for an outdoor wedding but a plate full of 'fresh flowers.'

Berry Brie Salad with Blackberry Vinaigrette

How does a salad recipe sound to you??  It's been awhile since I've shared one and I think you will really enjoy this Berry Brie Salad with Blackberry Vinaigrette.  It's quick and easy!  While the salad is loaded with fresh berries, spring greens and brie cheese, the real star of the show is the homemade salad dressing and that comes together in no time!

Peach Salsa

Let's do the salsa but put a twist on it with this Peach Salsa recipe today!  Peaches are one of my favorite fruits - I just love biting into the skin and having the taste burst in my mouth.  If the juice runs down my arm then so be it!  Finding peaches now is pretty easy to do and I buy them by the crate at my local Trader Joe's.

You've Got Mail!

Today's post is just a little housecleaning that I wanted you to be aware of.  Nothing scary or crazy I promise!  But just giving you a heads up. If you subscribe to my blog posts via email (you might be reading this there now), every time I have a new post, you receive an email around 7 PM CST.  I am currently using Feed Burner to manage these subscriptions but will be moving soon to Mail Chimp.  The major reason for the change, is that I understand it better, can customize and I think it looks a lot nicer than what I am currently doing!

No need to re-sign up - that is if I can do it correctly :)  I have faith that I will! Oh and I'll remember to disconnect feed burner so you don't get 2 emails - that would be annoying!

Another feature that I like is if you want to respond to the email with the post, just hit reply and I directly get an email... pretty nice!

If you aren't getting posts by mail and would like to, there is a sign-up box near the top right hand side of my side bar -will you be asked for your email but that NEVER gets shared with anyone and is confidential to me only (you always have the ability to unsubscribe too).  I'm currently doing 2-3 new recipes a week and our Friday night Best of the Weekend Party.

So to recap, I'll be making this switch in the next couple of days, you don't need to do anything, if you want to sign up here's your chance and if you are already getting emails, thanks for following!!!  I really appreciate it!
