Something that people are doing at a shocking rate, when you consider how simple these treats are to make at home, once you’ve had a bit of practice.
I’ve found a collection of delicious recipes and tutorials that I’m sharing with you today. Just keep in mind that it takes a bit of time and practice but I promise its worth it. Once you’ve mastered this recipe you’ll be the most in-demand party guest in town!
When we traded our little old house in Michigan for our lovely new apartment here in Madison, we lost the luxury of a yard and all the wonderful summer activities that go with it – including our BBQ Grill (still pouting about that one) and our flower garden. Luckily our little balcony gets enough sun that a few flower pots should thrive there! I haven’t had time to plant them yet, but I’ve been swooning over all the ideas on Pinterest.

These are a few of my favorite finds from my recent Pinterest browsing. For more great finds like these Follow Me!

Did you know that April is Grilled Cheese Sandwich month? This has me particularly excited since grilled cheese sandwiches and I share a special relationship. As in, its the only food I would eat at restaurants from age two until I turned eight or nine and began to branch out to chicken fingers. So I wasn’t the most adventurous eater as a child… Luckily my taste buds have matured in the past 20 years because that means I can enjoy some of these amazing upgrades on the classic sandwich that I’ve been drooling over on Pinterest for the past few days. What are some of your favorite takes on this classic? Anything I must try?
