This month I was assigned Nicole of I am a Honey Bee. Nic, as she likes to be called, lives in Massachusetts and is an architect. She has a boston terrier pup, 2 rabbits and a long-time boyfriend. I wonder how she keeps that terrier from going after those rabbits? Now that our assignments are revealed, I can ask her!!
Nic has many options for you when you are perusing her recipes. You can search by category, ingredients, holidays, slow cooker recipes, thirsty Thursday recipes and SRC recipes. I was so dang impressed. I can barely remember to add my recipes to my lone, sad, little recipe page. Ahhhhh to be young and computer savvy.
The Jalapeno Cornbread Poppers caught my eye right away, the only problem is that Frank might eat one or two if they are mild but that is his limit. I am definitely making the Sweet Pea and Mint Soup...wouldn't that be a wonderful starter for an Easter feast? And the Fusilli with Fresh Corn and Chicken in a Garlic Cream Sauce is for sure cooking up soon in this household. The Supreme Pizza Pot Pie will definitely be one of my pizzas for my Year of Pizza Challenge. There are tons of sides and desserts from which to choose but then, being the teetotaler that I am (not)...I was drawn to Nic's Thirsty Thursday page.
SCORE!!! There it was...screaming out "Hello Hot, August Summer Day...here I am, pick me!!". So, I did. I chose to make Nicole's Blackberry Margaritas. Except, I didn't have any blackberries so I used blueberries. And it was delicious and refreshing and had quite a kick and we loved them. Thanks, Nicole. I enjoyed my visit.
