Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Link Party

We are still traveling, sharing some between Wheeling, West Virginia (hubby's family) and Pittsburgh, PA (my family). So nice to see everyone since it has been awhile. Hopefully, Monday afternoon we will start for home. I am really missing our fur babies.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome back to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party #230

Wow, we are mid-July and I am already thinking of Back to School, can you believe it. While we are starting to make lists and planning shopping trips we should not be ready to give up on summer just yet. The days are long warm and sunny and there were great ideas from last weeks posts. I am excited to extend summer as long as I can.

Sorta Smores Brownies

I called these "sorta" smores brownies" because I can't really say that they are really "smores brownies".  It all started when I found a package of these Nestle Smores Morsels Mix package in my son's pantry.  They had a cookie recipe on the package but I was being lazy.

Welcome and Happy Monday. So glad you stopped by. Hope your summer is going well! 

I guess it is Prime Monday. Will you be buying? I have nothing that I need so I will not be buying.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Link Party

Still in Vermont and the weather has been beautiful, low 80's. They think it is hot, but coming from Florida, we think it is great. 

My grand daughter had a big Lacrosse tournament this weekend. It is always so much fun to watch the grand daughter play.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party #229

We are into the beautiful long days of summer where it is hard to believe it will ever end. School is still far enough away we can remember and encourage our kids to lay out in the grass and watch the clouds go by (if your kids are like mine you have to put the electronics in timeout, to make them go outside). We love the outdoors and all the beautiful warm days & love to spend time with family during a more relaxed time of the year.  I know you are going to love the features this week. Campfires are one of my favorite activities and you will see why I could not resist the first feature post. Grab the kids and go outside and enjoy some summer snacks & fun. ~Susan @craftingafamily.com

 

No Longer Puppies


Is there nothing cuter than little puppies? Those cute little bodies, sweet eyes, and rolly polly bodies. They just make you want to hug them to death. Look at the face on this cutie.

Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

I love being on vacation but the driving is not that great. Fortunately, we are now in Vermont for about 10 days. Nice being settled for a little while. The weather has been beautiful. It was hot on Monday and Tuesday but today was gorgeous around 80 degrees. 

Hope you are enjoying some cooler weather and your summer is wonderful.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Link Party

It's another Sunday here at Over The Moon. We are leaving Maine and heading to Vermont.  Although I love spending time with the grand kids, we do miss our fur babies. We only leave them once a year with my daughter but it is hard not having them around.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome back to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party #228

I hope you had a great 4th of July if you are here in the USA. We had a lot of fun with our communities annual Parade and Festival. With the holiday being on a Wednesday, we here are all confused feeling like Thursday was another Monday. But it is so much fun to have another weekend after the 4th to spend with family. A perfect weekend for more picnics, barbeques, and patriotic kids activities. So happy we are full swing into Summer! ~Susan @craftingafamily.com

On with this week's features!



For every summer picnic, you always have a bunch of condiments that clutter up the table and never look nice. What a great idea from Live Craft Love to make your table beautiful.  BBQ Condiment Bar for Summer Parties.
 

Macaroni Salad is a picnic basic and I love the added creaminess of this Cheddar version. It looks amazing.  Kim from Cozi Nest has a roundup of 4 versions of Macaroni Salad.  The one featured here is from Jo-Anna at A Pretty Life.

You will fall in love with the Summer Patio Outdoor Beverage Cart and put this on your list of projects for next summer. The design from Jen at Clean & Scentsible will make any outdoor space a vacation.
There is nothing better than a casserole for your picnic. One dish that you can make ahead and reheat for your family get together. Check out Culinary Envy's Pepperoni Pizza Chicken Bake recipe.


Now, let's get started now with this week's party. While you are here, we'd love it if you would visit the blogs of our lovely co-hosts!

Luscious Limoncello Cake

One of my Italian friends gave me a bottle of Limoncello and it has been in my refrigerator for a while now.  I finally decided to make something with it. I searched for recipes that used Limoncello and found one on Allrecipes that sounded really good.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy 4th of July. Hope you have a wonderful day if you celebrate. Please be safe if traveling. Lots of people in the U.S. are traveling this holiday. It is reported that "a record-setting 46.9 million Americans are expected to hit the roads, rails and sky for the Fourth of July holiday".

I guess hubby and I are in those numbers since we will be traveling to Portland, Maine for my grandson's hockey tournament and after that back to Vermont with them for a few weeks.

Decorated Blue Bottles for the 4th

I wanted to make something "easy" for the 4th. In a previous post, Stardom Craft Liquid Markers, I showed you some wine bottles that I used the markers on. Here I will show you how I created them.

Can Cookout Foods Harm You Complexion?

Summer is the perfect time for cookouts. Food always seems to taste better on the grill and you don't have to heat up your kitchen.  So whether you are just cooking for your family or having family and friends over, a cookout always seems to be special. What could be better?

Well, if you are trying to maintain a youthful appearance - there is a problem:
Most of those “fresh-off-the-grill” staples we’ve come to love…

Are major skin-agers.

Take hot dogs, for example. By now, you probably know these ultra-processed meats aren’t exactly “healthy”...

You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Here we are at the beginning of July and a holiday coming this week - 4th of July. Are you doing anything special? We are traveling on the 4th, heading to Portland Maine for my grandson's hockey tournament. So excited. Whatever you do, hope you have a good day and be safe.

Here it is July and we will be celebrating the 4th of July this week. What do you have for the holiday? It is rather crazy since it is taking place on Wednesday - not exactly a long weekend.
