Hey Friends, gosh can you believe that another month has passed us by already?!

Wow, this has got to be a record setting Summer for speed.  Here we are in August …..

…and I’m wrapping up July for you already.
I hope you are enjoying it however!

Okay, so I like to do a little “month in review” at the end of each month and put everything into one post for you.
All in one place in case you missed anything!

AND I also like to include the recipes I’ve shared over on Foodie Chicks Rule also in case you might want to try. :)
If you aren’t subscribed over there, you can hop over and do that…and then get the recipes straight to your inbox as they are posted.

So let’s see what I was up to all month:

  1. Your recipe for quinoa salsa looks wonderful…but I couldn’t bring up the toaco soup and chicken/rice recipe. They weren’t “highlighted”…do you think you forgot to do something to make them advance? I was ready to copy the recipes. Thank you, I enjoy your blog. Sherry

    1. Thank you Sherry…and I’m so sorry! I’ve fixed those 2 links now. :)
      Have a great Sunday and I hope you enjoy those recipes!

  2. I am wondering if you would be able to hook me up with a “how to” or copies of the Limoncello labels for the homemade limoncello bottles that I saw on a different post. I have my first homemade batch underway for Christmas gifts this year, but am having a hard time getting the labels I want for the bottles. The ones your post showed are perfect. Any possible way I could get them from your websight?
