Fun New Kitchen Helper

Last week I introduced you to the girls at Out A Thyme , a fun new foodie blog that I recently found. Hope you were able to check out some of their yummy recipes.
I also mentioned that I won their giveaway for the OXO Salad Spinner..
Well guess what I got Friday?


I’m really quite impressed by how well made this spinner is.

( ~not at all like the flimsy, useless spinner my mother had (by a different brand) that sat unused in the cabinet~ )

I can foresee this lil helper getting lots of use from me.


Thanks so much to Out A Thyme and OXO for the fun new kitchen tool.

BTW... What'cha think of the fresh new look the blog has?
Is it easier on your peepers?
Leave me a comment and let me know.. =)

Exciting News & Foodie Fun

Hey Guys.. Happy Monday!
Y'all ready for the new week ahead?
How was your weekend? Do anything fun/exciting?
I got all my orders finished and shipped out early in the week, so the weekend was all about my lil' "Love Bug". Had 3 whole days of much needed grandma time.. swinging, swimming, dancing & just having fun.
In a few months it will be double the fun..
Yep, exciting news to share with y'all.
"Wild Woman" is going to be a mommie!
It's A Girl!
I don't think we can have boys in our family. LOL
Well, I've been planning the shower menu for the past few weeks... Since it will be full-on South Texas Summer, I am definitely going with light dishes; lots of fresh fruits & veggies and cold appetizers. I made these


Pink Champagne Cupcakes for "Baby Girl's" shower so I think for "Wild Woman's" shower I'll make Margarita Cuppies. =)

Now I want to introduce you to a fun new blog that I just recently found.
is now one of my favorite foodie blogs. They feature lots of "different" and "do-able" recipes.

The first one that jumped out at me was the Bunuelos. Maybe that's because "Wild Woman" loves them so much; or maybe was the Nutella syrup. Mmmm.. Either way I am hooked!
and Bonus...
Last week they were hosting a giveaway for a OXO Salad Spinner. Guess what? I won! WooHoo.. My first ever giveaway win and my first ever salad spinner.. lol.. Thanks Girlies!
Stop by and say Hi to Melba & Kim!
