I think this speaks for itself.
I love this cupcake pan
I had to share with you my favorite lunch at the moment. I've eaten these for the past 4 days. So delicious.
We tried out the 100% whole wheat sandwich thins on Friday night for our homemade burger bar. Having a few left over I decided to make panini's for lunch and I haven't stopped. They are so good.
Piquillo & Artichoke Bruschetta
Heat in a panini press until browned.
On the side, homemade sweet potato fries with a little thyme sprinkled over them before baking.
The speakers will include:
ME ... oh yeah, you read that right, little 'ole me will be offering a few tips.

I feel so honored to be a part of this with such amazing women (and shhh between me and you a little nervous to be surrounded by such creative genius).
We would love it if you could join us for a great discussion about crafty blogging. We will be broaching topics such as self-promotion, attracting and keeping readers, creative content and making your blog visually appealing.
I've been busy cross-stitching social media buttons.
I wanted something a little different, and not too bright. I didn't want to detract from my content.
My first thought is that they would be fabulous for a cooking party with girlfriends, or for ladies who host parties as consultants for the likes of Pampered Chef.
What I really loved was the base of the cupcake paper so this is what I did:
Cut out the base of the cupcake paper.
Glue it to a sheet of cardboard and cut out.
Glue a wooden stick to the reverse side and set aside to dry.
Now go ahead and use some of more of those cute cupcake papers to bake your cupcakes in.
I am honored to be one of 50 bloggers who had the opportunity to Bag It Forward this summer.
Elmer's and Collective Bias sent us on a mission to purchase a bag of school supplies for our own child as well as a bag of supplies for another child who needs a little help before school resumes in the fall. I contacted a local organization, Peacock Acres, who provide residential care for foster youth. They told me they currently have a boy in care who is starting middle school soon.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a school supply list, but the fabulous staff member I spoke with suggested getting a backpack and the basic school supplies. Thankfully, we've done the 6th grade shopping trip previously, so we had a fairly good idea of what may be needed.
I am so thankful I was able to help start his school year off in such a positive way. I only wish I had the opportunity to see his face when received his bag.
Although we would love it if everyone could Bag It Forward and provide school supplies for a child in need, we know that isn't always possible, however Elmer's have partnered with Adopt-A-Classroom and will donate up to $10,000 if you participate in Elmer's Virtual Bag It Forward campaign.
The rules are simple:
