Lest you think that I have abandoned the blog forever, I wanted to let you know that I am still here! I’ve known for a while that our family’s month of May promised to be crazy…and it has not failed to deliver on its promise:) It’s mostly “good crazy,” but unfortunately, there’s been a fair share of “bad crazy.” I’ll fill you in soon!
Unintentionally, the blog had to take a back seat to my family during these weeks, but I look forward to being back in the saddle in just a couple of weeks with some delicious recipes for summer and lots of other treats for your home.
Be on the lookout next week for a guest post from Miss Kopy Kat blog! You do not want to miss her post with fabulous ideas for easy wreaths for your front door all year long! She is super-talented and gives great tutorials!
Thanks for sticking with me, I have missed being here!!
Happy Thursday to you! I’m sharing one of my favorite appetizers of all time with you today…Marinated Cheese! I promise you, although it looks difficult, it is not! The extra little bit of time to assemble this appetizer for the beautiful presentation is worth every minute! Marinated Cheese is perfect for any party, shower, or get-together all year long. Thanks, Stephanie, for sharing this recipe with me so many years ago!
Next, stand alternating cheese slices in a shallow dish, creating two rows. (You may have a few extra cheddar slices).
Pour marinade over cheese. Cover and marinate in fridge for at least 8 hours or overnight.
To serve, transfer (by hand) rows of marinated cheese to a serving platter, reserving marinade. Spoon leftover marinade over cheese slices.
Serve with assorted crackers (We love Triscuits with this appetizer!)
Good Morning all of you Amanda Jane Brown readers!! I am Meegan from What Meegan Makes and I am honored to be guest posting for Amanda today! Isn’t she great! I just love her!!
I am a vintage loving, grand baby kissing, beach going, shell finding, paint hungry kind of woman, and I love to blog about all of these things-sometimes even combined! My hope is to help you be inspired, create new ideas, try new recipes and make your house a home.
I am excited today to share a tutorial for a Mothers Day Garland. It’s super easy and perfect for a Mother’s Day decor!!
So, here we go!!
Fan Folded Book Pages
I found these fabric covered chipboard cards at Michaels (4 in a package). The package was labeled “Journal”, but I thought I could use them for a garland incorporating it with my book page garland.
Using stencils I decided to spell out “Mom”.
I used craft paint along with my stencils. Pink was just the right color!! Love it.
Doesn’t it look great so far??
Using the same technique as I did with my book page garland, I had a Mother’s Day Garland in no time at all.
I hope the rest of you will visit me sometime over at: What Meegan Makes.
