Adventures in Everyday Entertaining

Week In Review: Mothers, Foodie Adventures, and a Cover Squirrel

Cover Squirrel

When I first saw this image I laughed and smiled, and immediately thought of my best friend.  We used to love to quote the Cover Girl makeup slogan when we were in college.  I think this squirrel totally captures it! 🙂

This Sunday is Mother’s Day!  I just want to take a moment to wish all the moms out there a very special day!  You deserve it!!


Thinking of hosting a brunch to honor your mother?  Here are some delicious options to consider:

Individual French Toast Bakes

Figgy Streusel Cake

Buttermilk Pancakes

Homemade Hash Browns

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Blackberry Citrus Mimosas

Strawberry Lime Delight


This week I discovered through a blogging buddy the most incredible dream vacation for foodies!  Foodie Adventures come from Chef Michael Salmon and Mary Jo Brink who own The Hartstone Inn in Camden Maine.  The adventure is a week long trip to either Tuscany or France (next year they are adding Spain) in which you visit food related places (cheese makers, wineries, markets, etc.) as well as work along side Chef Michael in preparing what looks like FANTASTIC culinary treats!  I encourage you to check out Lulu’s Musings and read about this awesome adventure she is having!  I know I find myself daydreaming about when L and I can take one of these trips!!



For all of you fellow bloggers out there, and even those who aren’t, this blog post by Gigi Ross of Kludgy Mom is absolutely hilarious.  It is a bit long but so very worth the read!  How to Write and Promote a Blog Post
