This has been a very big weekend for our family. Actually I have been a little MIA for the past week... getting ready for the weekend!

Our son Christopher got engaged! He is my baby... and a  truly wonderful son!

This is Christopher and his beautiful fiance' Abigail...

 Mary's PUMPKIN GRANOLA was the most viewed link last week. I made this yummy granola and my family loves it! Head over to HOME IS WHERE THE BOAT IS for this recipe.







These tasty INDIVIDUAL VEGGIE QUICHE CUPS TO GO are a wonderful breakfast. I make this same recipe and they are so delicious!  A big thanks to Tracey at THE KITCHEN IS MY PLAYGROUND for sharing.







There are just some foods that make me pay attention... and Stove Top Stuffing is one (no judging please!) Lynn at HAPPIER THAN A PIG IN MUD shared these STOVE TOP STUFFING MEATBALL APPETIZERS. What a yummy brilliant idea!






Tigahen at HALF BAKED HARVEST made these heavenly looking SOURDOUGH BREAD BOWLS. These are on my must-make list! Sooooooo good!







MEATLESS SOUTHWEST WONTON ROLL UPS... oh my stars!!! These looks delicious! Kim at LITTLE MOMMY, BIG APPETITE  shares the OLE' flavor with us!!!








I am a cookie lover... and a coffee lover. Look at these luscious CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE STICKS... perfect for dunking in coffee or tea or milk or hot chocolate. You can get the recipe for these yummy cookies at BUTTER YUM. Thanks, Pat! I think they would make the perfect holiday hostess gift!







 I shared these fun and easy PUFF PASTRY LEAVES last week. I love to use them instead of croutons, and toppings. They can be made both savory and sweet!








This week's menu feature is Kelly at SEMI HOMEMADE MOM. Doesn't Pesto Ranch Pasta Bake sound scrumptious?
