Pineapple"n"Spice and everything nice


The weekend is finally here!!!! and I had a wonderful time  tonight with my friends over supper.... haven't seen them in a while so there was a lot of catching up to do... I thought I will share some of the items from tonight's menu with you:

The  Pineapple-upside down-cake is one of my favorite cakes to bake...and it's a hit every time I serve my guests, pssssst...... I cheated a wee bit, its from a boxed cake mix... a huge time saver!!!!! It looks so colorful and tempting, despite being from a box, don't you agree??

  

I love making these fruit tartlets for my guests... and the kids simply love 'em... they magically disappear within minutes!!

 They are so easy to make... just whip up until smooth:
   1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
   1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
   1/4 cup of orange juice concentrate
   3 tablespoon lemon juice
   1 cup of heavy whipping cream, whipped
   3 drops of yellow food coloring, optional
   12 graham cracker tart shells

   Pour the mixture into ready made graham cracker tart shells, chill for few hours, garnish with fruits of your choice and you're  done!!!!

    How about these sausage won-ton wraps as hors d'oeuvres:


And last but not the least, the spicy bbq chicken:

  I'm looking forward to a lovely weekend, spending time in my garden and getting it ready for planting. Planning which color flowers to plant in different containers is so much fun!!
Have a great weekend, I know I will!

I want to Thank Marty at Stroll Thru Life for featuring me at her 60th Tabletop Tuesday, this week. It is my first time for getting featured at her weekly party and I'm ecstatic!! Do stop by HERE and get inspired. You will get to know so many talented ladies!!!

  3. Hi, friend! You've got a lot of informative & creative posts so why
    not show them off at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop? My co-host
    this week is Amber from Lucky Lees To Be.

    This is a combination of linky party (where we can show off our
    creations) and of blog hop (where we can follow as many excellent
    bloggers as we like), hence the name Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop.
    It's a great way to meet awesome creative bloggers like you and
    increase your followers in the process.

    All you have to do is 1) link up whatever creative post you'd like to
    share - can be a DIY project, decor, photography, crafts, recipes,
    poem, thrift finds, tips, or that informative syndicated post that can
    make us laugh, or cry - in short, whatever you're proud of! 2) Then
    follow as many blogs as your heart desires, preferably starting first
    with the one before you and after you, and leave a comment to them
    that you're doing so.

    You’re not required to include the party button – you read that right
    – not required to include the party button but if you’re so inclined
    to display it in your blog or your post, you’re very much welcome to
    do so :)

    See you at http://www.homemakeronadime.com/2011/04/creative-bloggers-party-hop-041711.html
