On Vacation, Back Soon!

Hello! Happy Friday! I am taking a few days for a holiday with my sister and brother-in-law, who are visiting from the Midwest. As it is FINALLY cooling off just a bit we are going to hit the beach, and the trails, maybe do a little shopping and a lot of cooking.

Pottery Barn

I have already made some great things in advance of their arrival, like vanilla bean cupcakes with mocha butter cream frosting, Triple chocolate Oreo bars, and Southern vanilla pound cake.

 Lest you think I only consume sugar, I also made Balsamic Onion Beef Roast, Five Cheese Lasagna, and  Zucchini Tart. I will share the recipes with you next week. 

In the meantime,  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
