Link Party: Marvelous Monday #82

Well, what are you up to today?  Are you watching football to see what teams will be in the superbowl?  Or maybe you might be planning what food you might want to serve.  I've been noticing a lot of appetizer round-ups on the web - apps are my favorite.  I think I could live on those alone.  I'm guessing a few of you will be linking up some perfect football watching food!

Link Party: Marvelous Monday #81

Pin It

Welcome to another edition of Marvelous Monday.  How was your week?  Ours was a weather roller coaster ride.  It started with 2 days of no school due to the cold (-22 and unmentionable wind chills) and today it is a balmy 38!  We also had about 2" of snow at the end of the week.  You know what they say about Minnesota weather?  Wait an hour and it will change! So true.

Cheesy Crab Dip


Today I'm sharing a recipe that I made for Christmas Eve that was part of our Feast of the Seven Fishes event.  Being Italian, I've decided the last couple of years to make seven different kinds.  This Cheesy Crab Dip was a great addition to our appetizer course

Welcome to our first party of 2014!  Hope the year is getting off to a good start.  Did you make resolutions?  I really don't do that- I just try to be mindful of exercising, eating better, etc. all year long. NOT that I always do but I try!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  It's still not too late to wish you that right?  I wrapped up 2013 in my last post and I've been working on some new recipes for 2014.  I will be getting back to business and back to the kitchen this weekend.  Another thing I will be working one are the two new tabs that you might have noticed are blank in my banner.



I have some plans...
