"Get Your Chef On ~ Lemons"


Are you ready for my next fun big adventure in Blog Land? Oh I am so so excited to share this with you all-you are going to LOVE it! I am coming outta my little blog shell and expanding my wings with the one and only Julie from White Lights on Wednesday!{oh do we have something up our aprons, you just wait!}


Julie is such a funny gal, super duper sweet and makes the most delicious food ever! I fell in love with her and her blog the instant I saw her Peanut Butter Graham Cracker Pie! {I love peanut butter!} She also did the neatest paint job on her Knife Block- So clever and cute! Julie is one amazing lady, who I am so happy to call my friend! She is a very busy mom to her adorable two little guys but still manages to get her cook & crafts on!


She asked me-- yes ME {still so honored} to co-host a fantastic & fun " Iron Chef" type challenge! Our challenge is called Get Your Chef On! We will give you the secret ingredient {who doesn' like a good juicy secret} then you let your cooking creativeness flow! How fun right?! I am still squirming in my seat over here, because it's going to be so fun! So enough of the chit chat--- Here are all the details!!

  12. Love this! How fun! And I'm going to be the dumb one and ask when you say NEW does that mean new as in made up by me or newly posted on my blog? Bc I can follow a recipe like a pro but when I start trying to get creative and make up my own it usually doesn't turn out so well! Thanks Jen!
