Easy Summer Snack

This is an easy snack to make on a hot summer afternoon. It would also be yummy to serve as an appetizer.

One ripe tomato
Soft spread cream cheese
Town House Toppers - Garlic and Herb

Cut a slice of tomato to your desired thickness, and then slice into eight-quarters. Spread each cracker with cream cheese. Place one wedge of tomato on each topper. Serve and enjoy!

Simple and easy!

Blueberry Bread (but not homemade...)

I needed to make blueberry bread the other night and I need it quick! I would normally cook it from scratch, but didn't have the time so I used a boxed blueberry muffin mix and it turned out great! Here are some photos from start to finish!

(I am in LOVE with my new Racheal Ray bakeware! Cooked evenly and so easy to clean.)

(Don't hold the dirty oven against me! I haven't had time to clean it.. but it is on my to-do list!)

Mmmmmm... So good!

P.S. Have you checked out all the FUN giveaways on my personal blog -
If not, head over there now! The first one ends on Monday, July 19th!

CSN Review: Deni Cookie Press

The generous people at CSN Stores have offered me the chance to review a Deni Automatic Cookie Press. With 200+ stores, CSN carries everything from bakeware to dining room tables.

I added a cookie press to my wish list for Christmas, so I am super excited I will be receiving this a little early. My dad makes the best cheese straws and I hope that I will be able to use my cookie press to make some as well. I will post that recipe soon!

I can't wait to get my new cookie press and share a review with you. I also plan to to try some new recipes and decorating ideas. So become a follower so you won't miss my review!
