  1. Thanks for reminding me what is to come up here in New England where most are just putting their gardens in.

  2. Good morning Jenna. Corn is my favorite also and I can’t wait to see all the recipes you have in store. Corn salad sounds so delicious and fresh. I anticipate baked pina colado, that sounds like a refreshing dessert. Have a wonderful day!

    I always need to be reminded of things and you do a fabulous job of those reminders. Pimento cheese…! I have not had that in a long while! A perfect treat for our afternoon appetizers! Thank you for the reminder!
    I’m looking forward to your Monday Post of the Traveling Totes!
    Sending Sunday Hugs to you!

  4. Those lemon crackle cookies are so good Jenna! I hope you will enjoy them. Maybe they might even make an appearance in your wonderful art! Happy June! 🍋🌼☀️

  5. I love your appetizers especially. Cucumber is a favorite and what’s not to love with scoops.

    • Thank you Emily! I must admit I haven’t felt like cooking lately, either my son is here cooking or I just throw lettuce in a bowl, I’m hoping I get more motivated this month!
