The Butterfly Effect Shiraz

Of course I had to try this wine as soon as I saw it on just because I love the label!! It’s not just a pretty’s very good! One of my favorites…but I’ve not tried too many wines from them I don’t like 🙂 If you’ve never visited their website, you should check it out! Great wines, really great prices, and awesome customer service!!


Flower shaped cucumber bites

I saw cucumbers shaped like flowers with radishes and cream cheese on
I wanted to make them for an event I had this week but I didn’t have the flower-shaped cookie cutters. I was telling my mom about them and she had fondant cutters in the shape of a flower!!!.. So she let me borrow them and they worked wonderfully. I even used the small one to cut little flower shapes in the radishes. I thought they turned out so well. I just used Philadelphia Garden Vegetable and Chive and Onion cream cheese spreads and squeezed them out of the corner of a ziploc onto the cucumbers. The easier the better for me! And they were yummy!!

Last year Peaches and I were monarch butterflies for Halloween. Not sure why I’m making that face but I think my mask was squishing my eyes. Anyway.. I can’t wait to share photos from this year’s party! Only a week and a half away..Stay tuned 🙂
