I don’t like to watch it, I never liked playing football with my friends, I don’t even like playing catch with a football. If there was one thing Mike could change about me, I’m pretty sure this would be it. I saw this recipe on Jessica’s blog and made it the very next day. *Note: Jessica also has variations of this dip on her blog.

Needless to say it was a big hit with several of the women asking me for the recipe in emails over the course of that month!

90 second nutella chocolate cake Earlier in the week, I promised I was going to bake a cake for my blog. I lied. While I did make a cake, I certainly didn’t bake it. The Party Dress Decorating sugar cookies is one of my favorite seasonal treats. I love taking the time to sit down and be creative with color combinations, patterns and then gifting them to loved ones.

Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. Red White & Blue Nutella Napoleons I think these would make an absolutely smashing dessert for your Fourth of July celebration.

Roy G. Biv Smoothies I’ve had a few requests over the last few weeks for some smoothie recipes because I let it slip that Betsy and I generally just have a big smoothie for breakfast everyday.

Smoothies can be so varied I really struggled for awhile on how to present a wide spectrum of recipes in one post. That was, of course, until I saw a guy riding a bike last weekend with a rainbow sticker on his backpack.
