Adding a liner to an envelope can instantly transform it from blah to bright. Today, in addition to showing you how to make an envelope liner template, I’ll show you how I made a chevron thank you card with matching envelope.
These bars always remind me of lazy summer days, trips to the farmer’s market, barbeques, and long evenings on the patio. Bursting with fruit, I like them served warm or cold, with or without ice cream.
I often serve these at summer parties because these can be made a day or two in advance and kept in the fridge — although they will get soggy if left there too long — so I don’t have to heat up the kitchen with the oven the day of the party. I have even been known to serve these at breakfasts (after all, they do have fruit . . . at least that’s what I tell myself).
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I was very excited to take a break from unpacking this weekend and join some friends at a fundraiser for the EdVenture Children’s Museum, EdStravaGanza. I knew it was my type of event when I walked in and spotted these gorgeous paper flowers in duct tape vases:
We are still unpacking, but today I wanted to share with you a southern inspired recipe. Hopefully, we will be unpacked soon so that we can
stop tripping over boxes get back to cooking and crafting.
Today I am very excited that my husband Jaime generously agreed to let me share his red velvet cake recipe (altered a bit to make red velvet cupcakes) and his easy cream cheese frosting recipe. Many of Jaime’s friends request that he make his red velvet cake for celebrations and special occasions and he has been doing so for years. But for the first year or so that we were dating, while I heard a lot about his red velvet cakes, I didn’t have the opportunity to try one.
No, we are not unpacked yet (I wish!). We still have mountains of moving boxes. I’d show you a picture, but I don’t want any evidence of our current mess.
