Dill Pickle Dip

Happy Friday! :) I hope you've had a great week, and have something wonderful planned for this weekend. Whether it's relaxing, or getting out, I hope you live each moment to its fullest! :)

Today's share is dill pickle dip; I used the recipe I found at The Cutting Edge of Ordinary.

My stepdaughter loves dill pickles. :) She says she loves this dip; it was good! I did it exactly as the recipe said to, and got pretzels to dip in it.

I enjoyed it the first couple of times I ate it, but it never developed into a craving. :) But it was definitely a conversation-starter (I made it for a Stampin' Up! party).

OK, I'm outta here! :) Have a wonderful weekend! Be BLESSED, my friend!

Manicure Monday - Polkadots!

Welcome to another Monday! Did you have a good weekend? I did - it was nice. :)

So. This was probably one of my favorite manicures I've done in a long time. :) I did each nail in a different bright color, then did white polka dots on each one. :) It just made me smile, and it went with just about everything I own!

Have a wonderful day! Be BLESSED!

Banana Split Kabobs

Happy Friday!

Are you enjoying your summer? How on earth did we get to the middle of July, people?!? This year is FLYING by.

Today's share is quick, easy, takes no heating of your oven unless you want it to, and is a YES, PLEASE! with any age group. :)

This is Banana Split Kabobs from Lemon Tree Dwelling.

(BTW, if you're relatively new here, just click on the link above to go right to whatever I'm sharing!)

Now, the only thing I changed was that I also picked up a sour cream angel food cake and made some kabobs with that rather than the brownies. I looked at purchasing fresh precut pineapple, but whole ones were on sale - and right now, they're only 00 cents at Aldi's! - so I cut my own pineapple up.

They were fun, they were pretty, they were yummy, and they were a hit. :D What more can one ask for?!?

OK, I'm outta here! :) Have a wonderful day, and a wonderful weekend, and try something new! Be blessed, friend!

Manicure Monday - Patriotic!

Good Monday Morning!

I hope you had a fantastic weekend!

This is how I did my nails for Independence Day. It's a white base coat, with a red clear sparkle glitter topper. Then I French-tipped my nails with that pretty blue, and TRIED to draw a line right underneath with a silver metallic striper brush. Now, please note: this is my right hand. I am left-handed. And the button on my good cameras are all on the left side. So you usually get the worse of the two to see, unless I talk Kenn into helping me. :D

I got a lot of compliments on them on Sunday. It was fun - they're sparkly to look at, and the blue tips attract just enough attention. :D

OK, I'm outta here! I hope you have a wonderful day! :) Be BLESSED, friends!

Greek Yogurt Brownies

Happy Friday! :) Are you planning to have a good weekend? I hope so! And these MIGHT help it be pretty awesome. :D

These are Greek yogurt brownies from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice.

These are INCREDIBLY rich, people. Don't look at this and think, "HOW small do you want me to cut these? No way!" THEY ARE SO VERY RICH!!!

I followed the recipe exactly. If I were to do it again, I wouldn't put the last 1/4 cup of semisweet chips on top; I'd probably add another 1/4 cup of white. It was really, really DARK. Oh, I didn't put in the walnuts; they would probably help cut the richness a bit, too, but didn't want to deal with possible nut allergies.

These are a yes, please recipe. No one could believe these were no fat! :)

OK, I'm outta here. Have a WONDERFUL weekend! Be blessed, dear friend!

Asian-Style Cobb Salad

Hi! Did you have a good weekend? How's your June going? Mine's fast and furious! Goodness! :)

We decided to do these one night because we'd been SUPER busy, and I had all the ingredients on-hand. We like layered salads - where anyone can put whatever they want more of into their serving. This is mine!

The recipe comes from D*mn Delicious.

(I just don't get the idea of putting curse words into the name of your blog. Just me, but...!!!)

We liked it. We liked the fact it was easy, that things are on-hand for it. The dressing was nice and light, and I appreciated that. I'm keeping it in the "Good recipes to have", because I like the elements. We didn't LOVE it - it wasn't a demand performances - but it also wasn't a DON'T MAKE THIS EVER AGAIN. :D

OK, I'm outta here! Have a wonderful day, dear friend. BE BLESSED!

Soft Amish Sugar Cookies

Welcome to Friday! :) I hope you've had a good week. Do you have a busy weekend coming up? I certainly do - it seems to pile up all at once! :D

So, today's recipe is one I tried a while ago - see the hearts? :D Yes, it was Valentine's Day. I had to make cookies for something at church, which was cancelled. So Kenn got these. :D He was happy! They're Soft Amish Sugar Cookies from Cookies & Cups.

I didn't change a thing about them. I did find that I needed to push the sprinkles/hearts on top in a bit, or they slide right off. :) They also freeze well, which is ALWAYS a plus. :D

Let me know if you try them!

OK, I'm outta here. :D Have a WONDERFUL day, my friend! BE BLESSED!
