Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Party #19

Happy Saturday!  Has summer officially started at your house?  It has at ours even though we no “end of school” festivities we are enjoying some summer weather here in the Northwest. Thanks to all the sun we are having our strawberry patch is going crazy and I am making lots of yummy things with strawberries.  If you missed the Strawberry Pizza this week be sure and check it out – a total family favorite.  They’ll be some more strawberry goodness coming up next week too!


On Thursday Jim and I celebrated 32 years of marriage.  I am a lucky lady that he has put up with me and all my craziness for that long!


Last weekend our son Clark was in town for a friend’s wedding and this weekend Logan flew into town to spend some father/son time with Jim up in Seattle at a couple of Mariner’s game.  I was able to steal Logan away before they left for Seattle and take him out to breakfast.  I love any opportunity I have to spend with my kids and now that they are adults it is so fun to spend time with them one on one!


So how was your week?

Last week’s most viewed link were these delicious cake mix rolls from Busy Mom’s Helper.  Yes, they actually use cake mix!  They look amazing!

Here’s a few things that caught my eye and my stomach!!

I am crazy about anything with malt in in so I know I will love these Malt Chocolate Chip Cookies from Annie’s Noms!


I love everything about a chocolate chip cookie.  Combine that with another one of my favorites – ice cream and you’ve got pure heaven!  Then add some hot fudge to it and oh my gosh!!!  Hot Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwich from Half Baked Harvest.  To die for!


If you are not a cookie person, maybe you are a pie person.  Kristen Duke shared this amazing Fruit Smoothie Ice Cream Pie!  Yum!!!


I’m loving the look of this  Churro Caramel Corn from Creme de la Crumb and I’m pretty sure I would love the taste of it too!!


I’ve been breaking out the paint at my house lately and been in a totally crafting mood.  Love, love a good DIY, Good will makeover too so check out this Kate Spade Polka Dot Inspired Bowl from It’s Always Ruetten.  So cute!


And if you haven’t found enough uses for that washi tape you’ve been collecting check out the cute DIY Washi Tape Clipboard from Glitter the Blog.
