These cupcakes are a party in themselves!

A New Summer Favorite

Sunday Morning and it is Blueberry Muffin Time

Blueberries are one of my favorite summer foods along with cantaloupe, watermelon, strawberries and pesto. Yummy summer foods are awesome. Blueberries always remind me of a hot, breezy summer day in July 2 years ago. My mom and I took a girls only road-trip from LA to San Fransisco.

We driving though some of the most beautiful places in California and I was hoping to find lots of fruit stands and farms with pick your own fruit.

Summer Eats

It is summer time and now that most of my patio container garden has been planted and thriving I am starting to use my fresh herbs. I have Rosemary, Basil, Italian Parsley, Kentucky Mint planted so far. I also have grape tomatoes, yellow pear cherry tomatoes and Roma tomatoes and  baby yellow zucchini and strawberries (strawbabies so far). I will share some pictures with you on Wednesday!

I have already been using my herbs and I wanted to share this awesome summer recipe with you. These stuffed mushrooms are awesome and are now a staple of my summer-diet. Stuffed mushrooms have been a favorite summer food for 5 or 6 years. A friend shared her recipe with me and (you know me) I just ran with it. So far this is my favorite version, it is so easy and a fresh vegetarian meal.  I hope you enjoy them!
