Busy week of Baby showers and other fun cooking adventures

Cream cheese mints
Hello friends in the bloggoshere. I have been a bit remiss getting a post out. It has been a busy, busy week with a fun filled weekend with a baby shower, two meals with friends, and a little party. There was much cooking just not much time on the computer.But let me give you a taste of some of the things I made for the baby shower that I may want to share here.

Cream cheese mints colored for the baby shower

Some of the fun things I made this weekend.

Green tea and almond short bread cookies, which were a bit too green but fun and tasty nonetheless.

The extra green cookies :-) did look nice with the Lemon Squares


 Caprese Salad with herb infused basil oil


Brie baked in Phyllo cups with raspberry preserves

Retro punch with Lime sherbet


          I also made hot cheesy artichoke dip, fruit with cream cheese dip, vegetables with hummus and ranch dip.

It was a fun Party!

    Perhaps this was not technically "Dinner" so I am not sure if the recipes belong here, but would anyone like to see a recipe for any of these? Let me know.





  1. YESSS!!! Well, all of the recipes would be nice (haha) but if you can, I'd like to know Caprese Salad and the punch? I don't bake...but I bet everyone wants to see your sweets recipes. ;-) These green tea shortbread cookies look so yummy! Sounds like you had a great week Denise!

  6. Denise, I'm planning a shower for May 22 for my daughter-in-law and would love to talk with you about some of these things or other suggestions. I know you're busy with your grad party this Saturday, but do you have any time early next week? Thanks, Liz Miles(p.s. BSF just finished and now I am panicking!)
