I’m forever trying to think of fun crafts and snacks
Southwestern chopped salads are my absolute favorite! When they’re full of black beans, corn, tomatoes, and avocado, you really can’t go wrong. I wanted to put an entertaining twist on my fave go-to salad so I am showing you how to created layered mini Southwestern salads!

Some of my fondest memories are picking blackberries at my grandparent’s house in upstate South Carolina with my family. We have this thing with blackberries…we LOVE them (proof: my brother’s blackberry jam recipe). They’re not quite as popular as the strawberry or the blueberry but if you taste them at their ripeness, you’ll fully understand why we’re obsessed. Blackberry cobbler is a personal favorite recipe

I hope you’re inspired to enjoy

I’m so thrilled to get to share this sample recipe, it is so easy and so delicious. I’ll admit, Rosie’s cakes and desserts are like works of art so I was nervous that mine wouldn’t hold up
Once a year, I take a post to celebrate something I’m very proud of – Pizzazzerie’s birthday! Yep, this little site here turned 5 this week! WOW! I truly cannot even believe that a little thought I had while driving home from my corporate job (that I desperately wanted out of) one day has turned into my full-time job and allowed me opportunities I never
