Blueberries, Pies and Monkeys! Oh My!!

Soooo y’all know I love food, right?
I mean food, it’s comfort, it’s delight, it’s an experience, it’s downright sensual and tonguegasmic.
Hellooooo. Food, it’s not just for nourishment y’all.
I post my little recipes once a week and I stalk follow a few fellow foodies faithfully and share recipes by e-mail with others. Today I happened upon one of my normal foodie reads and one of my favorite non-foodie reads and lo and behold, I’ll be damned if both of these women added a combined 2 inches to my hips just from reading their recipes and the pictures… Lord love a duck y’all, they both added pictures that had me practically licking my screen.

First there is one of my favorite foodie bloggers, Cathy, of Noble Pig fabulosity. She had me salivating and practically panting over these amazing Blueberry Bars with Lemon Streusel Filling. I warn you now, you will have to fight the urge to run to the nearest farmers market or fruit stand. However, don’t fight the urge too hard. 🙂

Then, there’s Amy. The darling, witty, mommy-woman-female-person blogger extraordinaire Amy of Milk Breath and Margaritas, she surprised and delighted me with a recipe that had me at brandy, peaches and pie. I mean really, if you’re alive, much less Southern that should have you practically vibrating in your seat with desire. You can find the recipe here.
But Rachel, aren’t you holding out on us, you ask?
*Me feigning innocence*

As if you’d buy that.
Monkey’s birthday party was fabulous, it was a blast, he got ‘vroom vrooms’ and tools and what else could a two year old want.

Oh and the cake…
Well, I’ll let Monkey tell you.

Icing, Icing, Icing!! Nom Nom Nom.

Mom, move that candle already. I’m ready to dive in


One more tiny little thing.
The beyond precious AnglophileFootballFanatic is hosting a contest to name her new niece, her SIL has chosen 5 names and the one that I suggested has been chosen.
Would you please be a wonderful lovely person and go vote for the name I suggested.
Pretty please with candy coated strawberries, blueberries and rum soaked Dark Chocolate balls.
oh yes, it’s the one that starts with the letter O. It’s classic and beautiful.
