Don't forget ... Favorite Recipes on the First!

Now friends...
please don't forget,
August 1st 
is slowly creeping up on us
and will be here before
we even know it!

Remember last month?
July 1st totally snuck up on me
and I missed my Favorites on the First
post until late
the night of the second, thanks
to some sweet nudges from 
blogging buddies!

Italian meatballs from Pinterest

Well, that's summer for you...
leisurely distractions throwing
you off your game, right?

So this is just a friendly reminder
to get your favorite recipe or recipes
together to share on the first, ok?

Hoping my friend Yvonne at StoneGable will come by and share one of her infamous delectable recipes with us !

I am working on mine this week.
Haven't decided what I will be sharing just yet!

But to get your creative
"juices" flowing ---
 take a look at 
all these images from Pinterest.
Wow. They sure look amazing!

A calorie-free appetizer.... jk, jk! Pinterest

See you soon,
on the first for some
recipe swapping!

I'm hungry just looking at the recipes! Want to try the tomatoe tart today. Hope you are having a good summer. We've been preparing to sell our home. Big job to sell a farm, but can downsize to our log cabin on another farm. Lots to do!!!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Thanks for the very very nice shout out, Alison!
I just put the 1st on my calendar! Cooking up great ideas to join in the fun!
Does your linky go up the evening of the 31st or is it the 1st!
Looking forward to all the creative culinary talent!

I sure will try but it may not be as delicious as the ones you showed. Mine maybe on the healthy side:)


Bliss said...

Too bad not one of those pictures looked appetizing to me. NOT! I could lick the screen.


Designs By Pinky said...

I think Yvonne could just fill the whole party with her recipes!!!! I will come up with something. I just made a recipe from Pinterest the other night and it was GREAT so that may be it. Thanks for the reminder:) XO, Pinky

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

My stomach is growling just looking at some of these recipes. I'll put my thinking cap on and come up with a favorite for summer.

Rose L said...

I will have to remember to whip out my cook book and share one!

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Ok, I am seriously wanting to dry one of those pink lemonade vodkas! I will have to pull out some of my momma's recipes. It would be to honor her as the 1 year anniversary of her passing is August 3. She would like that.

Alison, my email is
I'd leave my address here, but would rather give it to you via an email. My husband loves that wicker bottle!!!
