Foodie Friday and Everything Else

On this hot August afternoon, Foodie Friday and Everything Else welcomes you to sit down and relax. Let's get you something cool and frosty to drink, along with (calorie free) nibbles. The last few weeks have been busy--lots of cooking, dog tending, and house fluffing. One adds girth, the others bring joy. 

I'm delighted to share highlights from last week's party:

Bluesky Kitchen shared a scrumptious, seasonal dessert: Orange-Basil Cherries with Ricotta.


1915 House created the Ultimate Dry Rub Guide for summer grilling:

A Fresh-Squeezed Life shared her favorite furniture flips (so far):


Cedar Hill Farmhouse shared hutch styling tips and treated us to fresh mountain breezes:


Home Is Where the Boat Is has written a brilliant and beautiful guide to arranging flowers, complete with step-by-step tips and tricks.
