Recipe Box, Spring Everything!

I have been goofing off all week working hard at the beach all week overseeing the construction and trying to clean up the mess.   I have been living with hammers and saws and sheet rock dust as the work slowly comes to completion…


It hasn’t been a great atmosphere for cooking, crafting and tablescaping!   So now  that we are in full swing Spring I wanted to end this week with some of my very favorite Spring recipes, Decor ideas and Tablescapes from last year~

Carrot Dip Garden, an easy peasy dip that gets noticed!

    Hi Jenna, I know you’re glad your construction is almost finished! I love seeing your recap~ your Bunny Garden is one of my favorite all time posts and thanks for the reminder for your Orange Cloud Rolls! We’re enjoying a couple of days with wonderful spring weather, then cold rain and temps in the 20s again. I’d much rather hang an umbrella on the door with flowers, than use it 🙂

    Wonderful ideas! Those orange rolls look delicious. Have a great weekend, Jenna.

  3. You have me dreaming of blue skies and warm air! Love your tablescapes! Thanks so much for sharing at our Super Saturday Link Party, my friend!!!

    🙂 Linda

  4. So many beautiful ideas! I love the umbrella door hanging. Several of the recipes look tasty and I’m busy clicking away to read them all.

    Jenna is right, those orange rolls look very yummy. I can smell their orange deliciousness right through the screen. Beautiful images of the warm days that surely will be back soon. A garden party sounds like so much fun. I love the napkin rings. Did you make them? Have a wonderful week…. Candy

  6. It is never, ever, ever, ever a good idea for me to see this much tasty food first thing in the morning! I’m already hungry, and now I just want to eat EVERYTHING in sight!!!!!!

    Glad to see the construction at the beach house is coming along. Don’t work TOO hard with the clean up!

    Love all of these tables and recipes…that polka dot table is great!

  8. Ugh! Sheet rock dust is THE worst….but it seems like you are not letting it hold you back! If I wasn’t feeling the Spring-thing yet, I sure am now – great stuff, especially the orange rolls!

  9. The orange cloud rolls look super yummy!

  10. Wonderful scapes…..and I am so sorry you can’t really cook or create a great table setting right now, you must be going nuts, because I know I would be! Construction always equals chaos, so don’t forget to treat yourself to a nice picnic if you can!
