Things I am Loving This Week

– This awesome article about personal creativity and blogging

– Slushies made with my Magic Bullet, the greatest blender on earth. Just blend ice with fruit and juice until you have a Slushie!

Homemade Apricot Jam

– Taking a walk and finding a few gorgeous horses living down the street

– The first days of Summer Vacation

– Finally remembering to give my daughter’s teacher a gift before summer vacation. Β A batch of these, my favorite brownies.

– Tweets and workshop notes from BlogHerFood since I can’t go, yet again.

– The invading blackberry vines growing everywhere. Β I’m sure I will hate them one day, but not today. Β All I see is future blackberry jam.

– The impromptu baby bump shot

– Flowers blooming everywhere, some with the promise of juicy fruits.

About Melissa

I live in the high desert outside of Los Angeles in southern California with my 14-year-old daughter and my 6 yr old son. I love to help people, which is why I am a teacher! I find so much joy in helping others create a life they love. This little blog is about food. Growing it, cooking it and eating it! I hope it inspires you to try something new and stretch yourself!

    I did not know about blogher workshop notes but I’m so glad to! Thank you! And thanks also for the link. : )

  2. Thanks for the blogher links; very helpful! One of these days I’ll go to a blogging conference. By the way, I linked back to you on a recent post, because your gorgeous asparagus tart was my inspiration.

  3. Aww…the *best* shot was at the end :-). Very nice bump in green… beautiful where you live, too!

  4. SO much to love here! CONGRATS!
