Happy Independence Day!

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Good Morning Darlings!

Here in Atlanta we are going to see torrential rain for July 4th. Will that stop the party?

Heck no!! We will be at our dear friend, Melanie’s house. It is going to be a HAPPENING. I can’t wait!

I am making double bacon potato salad. If some bacon is good, more is better, right?

What are you up to? I am crushing on these fun photos:

Cupcakes, icing, and well, more cupcakes!

Apparently, I’m on an icing kick.

I’m not even sure what these are, but I need them in my life.

And I HAVE TO HAVE everything on this sweet website:

Love love love

I wish you and your loved ones a fabulous and safe July 4th. Leave a comment and let me know what you are up to!!

xoxo, Patti

My Snack Bracket Winning Recipe

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Good Morning Darlings!

As I gear up for Super Bowl Sunday and our Snack Bracket, I think I’ve found the winning recipe.

Although, now that I’m getting ready to link to it, I think Holly might have already made this once before and I disremember.

Anyhoo! I found this on Taste and Tell and I’m going to make it for Sunday. Maybe. If I don’t find something else.

Sorry, Hol.

Holly might have beat me to this.

Good Morning Darlings!

Can you believe it’s almost Christmas? Holy cow!

We are hosting a tiny dessert and cocktail party late Christmas night. Seems like a good time. Everyone will be done with family celebrations and be ready to unwind.

What do the holidays hold for you?

Thanksgiving Appetizers – Sausage Balls

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Good Morning Darlings!

When I am asked to bring an appetizer to a party, sausage balls are my go-to recipe. It is ridiculously easy and they taste so good.

A couple of weekends ago, I had 3 parties to go to, so I whipped up 3 different versions of the basic recipe.

Pop in and get in the kitchen with me!

Sweet Camp Treats in Charlotte

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Good Morning Darlings!

Eric and I were just in Charlotte this weekend at The Ritz-Carlton and I cannot wait to share all the fabulousness we experienced. More on that later this week.

If you just can’t wait – here’s a teaser. Charlotte is a gorgeous city and we were enchanted by it. I think you and your love of chocolate should indulge by taking a class at the Cocoa Lab and sending your kids to Cooking Camp while you are at the spa or shopping at the Epicentre across the street.

Deets!
