Friday Link Love And A Heads Up About Next Week


First up let me take care of a little Dianne's Dishes "business". Next week I won't be posting recipes. It's Miss G's first week of 1st grade and we'll be busy doing 1st grade stuff! I should have lined up some guest bloggers, but in all my preparations for actual school work I didn't think of that! I had hoped to find some time to get some recipes up and ready to go ahead of time, but well that didn't happen either! So next week you'll get What's For Dinner? and possibly Friday Link Love...It will just depend on how the week goes! After that we should be in a routine and then I'll get back to the recipes!


Now let's get down to some Friday Link Love for today!

Dine and Dish is helping out with a fabulous cause...Cupcakes for Cancer! If you don't live in Kristen's area there are still ways you can contribute. Hop over and check it out! The sunflower cupcakes are gorgeous!

Tartlette shared some Myer Lemon & Sour Cream Donuts that really looked great! I'm going to have to actually take the leap and make donuts one of these days!

If you've been reading Dianne's Dishes for a while you'll know I'm a BIG fan of getting kids involved in the kitchen! Elana from Elan's pantry posted a great entry on Getting Your Children to Cook! Not only is cooking fun, it teaches kids valuable life lessons that they'll carry on to adulthood!

OK chocolate and peanut butter...You know I like that! When I saw these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Duos on Picky Palate my mouth began to water! Don't they look zen like? Sort of Yin and Yang? Yum!

Have you got squash and zuchini and don't know what to do with it? The Homesick Texan posted a really great looking Tex-Mex Squash Casserole that I'm really going to have to try!

My blog daughter Ingrid took one of my all time favorite flavors and made some Key Lime Pie Ice Cream! I've made Key Lime Ice Cream myself, but mine didn't have graham crackers. I'm going to have to try that! Looks delicious!

I love quiche. How about a quiche made with caramelized onions? Sound right up my alley! Check out goodLife {eats} and see Katie's Caramelized Onion Quiche.

And last but not least pop on over to the Mystery Lover's Kitchen and take a look at the Low Country Boil. That looks great!

What caught your eye this week?

You are too sweet to post about the cupcakes, thank you!
Good luck with 1st grade. Remind me... do you homeschool or does your school actually start this early?

We homeschool. I like to start at the beginning of August so we don't have to go into June, although we still do lessons a couple of times a week during the summer just to stay in the groove, but they are more laid back and more of a review.
