Strawberry Shortcake Biscuits

Happy May!
I'm not sure what happened to April, but month of May brings us closer to warm,
sunny weather so I'm okay with that.

It's been raining off and on here in Virginia for days, but hopefully it will clear up by
the weekend because we have a lot of celebrating to do!  Our daughter, Madison is
graduating from James Madison University with a degree in Sports and Recreation
Management and we are so proud of her.  My mother-in-law is coming from Texas
and all of our family will be here for the graduation ceremony and party.  I can't wait!

4-Ingredient Raspberry Peach Crumble

Yes, you read the title correctly.
Only four ingredients are needed to make this delicious raspberry peach crumble,
perfect for spring and summer get togethers.

And you only have one bowl to wash after making it!
Or maybe two, if you devour the entire dish of fruit crumble after it bakes :)

Roasted Vegetable & Blueberry Salad

I can't believe it's been over a year since I have attended a food blogger conference.
I've only been to a handful of them all together, but I really enjoy them when I
have the opportunity to go.  I learn so much from other bloggers and we have so
much fun together!

Next month is the Food and Wine Conference, which is held annually in Orlando
at Rosen Shingle Creek.  I would LOVE to attend this conference!  Wish Farms is
hosting a "blueberry toss" recipe contest and the person that wins the contest gets
to attend the conference and also wins a gift card and a flat of blueberries.
I would be in blueberry heaven!! I really want to go to this conference so I have
been racking my brain thinking of ideas!

Roasted Vegetable & Blueberry Salad

My family and I eat blueberries daily.  They are so good for you and delicious too!  We
put them in smoothies, on our oatmeal, in salads, baked goods and eat them right out
of the container, so I didn't have any problem coming up with a blueberry salad recipe!

Strawberry Overnight Oats

I go through cycles with my oatmeal.  When I have a lot of bananas on hand, I make my
Perfect Morning Oats.  Sometimes I'll be in a steel cut oats mood, so I'll make this or
this.  When we have guests over I'll make baked oatmeal, but lately I've been craving
overnight oats and now that strawberries are in season I decided to make strawberry
overnight oats.  I think in may be my new favorite!

Strawberry Overnight Oats

Preparing overnight oats one or two evenings a week saves time, energy and money!
You can even hit that snooze button once or twice since your breakfast is already to go!

My Favorite Trail Mix

I don't go anywhere without a snack or two and this trail mix is one of my favorites
lately. I love customizing my snacks according to my mood and current likes
and right now I am loving Puffins cereal and chocolate sunflower seed drops!

This trail mix is great to keep in your purse, car or at your desk when afternoon
hunger strikes!

My Favorite Baking Essentials

one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight

Mother's Day is coming up soon, so I thought I would share a few of my favorite
baking essentials.  If your mom likes to bake, maybe she would like them too!  
My favorite baking essentials are items I love and use often when baking sweet
treats and healthy eats.

Are Tieks Worth the Price?

If you follow me on Instagram (hint, hint) you have probably noticed a few photos of
my feet from time to time.  That's because I'm so in love with my pretty fuchsia and lilac
Tieks ballet flats that I just can't resist!

Tieks Ballet Flats - Are they Work the Price?

Never before have I loved a pair of shoes so much! Not only are Tieks cute and stylish,
but they are THE most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned!  Tieks are made of
fine Italians leathers, are hand stitched and have non-skid split leather soles providing
comfort and support.
