Hello, August! I thought you would never get here.
If you aren't following my Instagram account you might not know this yet, but we are expecting....
Unfortunately, Mr. and Mrs. Mourning Dove built the nest on the light right next to our sliding door. Luckily, Mama Bird has gotten used to me peeking out and waving to her over the last 2 weeks and I have my 10 year old somewhat convinced to go the long way to the back yard. Her tolerance of us may change when her babies hatch though.
On the blogs this week I have a healthy and refreshing Watermelon Sorbet, a fun kids craft making their own beaded jewelry and some travel photos of Mission San Diego.
Welcome back to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party #232
It's August here at Happiness Is Homemade. Can you believe that it is August? Where has the summer gone? I am so excited to be your hostess for the month. Come along with me as I pick and share features that I hope will inspire you. I love seeing all of your DIY ideas, recipes, crafts, fashion, etc. This week's features are delicious recipes with a cute craft thrown in. (You should never pick features when you are hungry!) ~Bev @EclecticRedBarn.blogspot.com
On with this week's features!
As you may know if you follow me, my brother-in-law manages a farm in Georgia that has pecans and peaches so when I saw this dish, I knew I had to make it. Fresh peaches are amazing, especially when they are fresh picked. Patrick made this flatbread with peaches, cheese and a honey balsamic reduction. Yummy! Check out the recipe at Looney for Food.
I love chicken cordon blue, but if you are in hurry, try this one pan dish instead. It is fast and easy and you can have it on your table in 25 minutes or less. Now that is my kind of dinner. Check out Kristen's recipe at Dizzy Busy and Hungry.
Sometimes you just need a snack. This Chili-Cheese Dip only uses 4 ingredients. Scoop up some of that hot and gooey cheese melted over chili with a corn chip and make your taste buds happy. Check out Dani's recipe over at 2 Dishing Divas.
After all that great food, I wanted something sweet and what better than cheesecake? Marilyn over at Marilyn's Treats always has such amazing desserts and this Snickers Cheesecake is calling me. Head over and check out the recipe.
Although it is not food, this craft project is so adorable. I had not heard of teacup fascinators before and Debbie created her own version. You can get full details on how to make your own Whimsical Teacup Fascinators over at Debbee Buzz.
