I’ve decided I need to use up my stash. I also have a ton of scraps that I can’t bring myself to throw out so I’m going to use them for stuffing. For what? For an ottoman type seat like the drawing you see above. Yeah, I know my photoshop drawing skills leave something to…Details
Nothing super special here. These were set out as hors d’oeuvres and I liked my presentation and thought I would share.
As an appetizer I made deviled eggs. I used the Cooks Illustrated recipe. I enjoyed them and I got great compliments on them 🙂

Strawberry rhubarb pie is by far my favorite. Hubby and I had friends over for a BBQ for Memorial Day and I made pie because they had rhubarb at the store and lots of strawberries. It came out wonderfully delicious. Mmm . . . and I liked the star cutouts too 🙂 The pre-oven picture…Details
