I met April while in Utah. We were actually sitting next to each other for awhile. I like her. (yes, I liked them all……but that’s not always the case)
Her blog Simply the Sweet Life is like flipping through a Martha Stewart or Real Simple magazine. I just keep scrolling and scrolling looking at her gorgeous photos. Maybe because she has a wonderful online mag called CraziBeautiful. It’s full of some great stuff………you’ll enjoy it. I promise……..pinky promise.
Lots and lots of recipes……….
Pico de gallo – Yum…….nothing like fresh pico on a warm summer evening. My brother inlaw makes some pretty good pico.
On her CraziBeautiful site……you’ll find a ton of topics. Including a cooking section. She got a few contributors who help fill her site with TO DIY FOR treats and meals. Like this Raspberry Pound Ice Cream cake……..Need a fancy cake, but you don’t have a lot of time? This is your recipe.Since Raspberries are in season……..you may as well make some raspberry lemonade. It always looks so nice.My sis makes this dessert! I’m thinking this dessert is a signature dish like funeral potatoes for these Utah families. They do love their jello. Yum! I love this. The crust is crushed pretzels! Also found on her CraziBeautiful Magazine…….RootBeer Float CupCakes! (you know you can find cute cupcake liners at Skip To My Lou’s new bake shop – SWEET!)OK, so if you’re not eating carbs like me……you can still enjoy yourself by looking at all the other fun categories she has.
This contributor below was a past feature! Yes she was.And this clip board would be darling just hanging on the wall. She’s got a full tutorial on her mag site.If you haven’t clicked over to find that clipboard and you’re still with me……..you may also enjoy April’s holiday garland she made for the Fourth….of course it can be adapted for other holidays. We can always use a garland for something, right?What if you don’t how to make one? No worries, she’s got a tutorial.
