Happy May 1st!

What an amazingly busy – and fattening – month April was!  LOL!  The weather in NC has finally gotten warmer, my daughter’s Spring Break wrapped up, and I celebrated both my 40th birthday and my 13th wedding anniversary.  I also gave my very first cooking presentation to my church’s women’s group at our annual beach retreat.  So much fun and excitement!  My blog has taken a bit of a backseat to all the goings-on, but the good food sure hasn’t!  I’ve been steadily cooking up a storm, taking notes, and mentally preparing some amazing blog entries…just as soon as things settle down a bit and I can get it all from my head to the screen.  In the meantime, enjoy a few pics from our festivities and stay tuned for some scrumptiousness, coming your way soon!
