 The Spring Vineyard
and blogger update. 

A couple of weeks ago, I was visiting my friend Elizabeth.  Her property sits next to this beautiful little vineyard.  This is what you see when you pull into her driveway!  How cool is that!  Can you imagine seeing all of this everyday.  I couldn't resist getting out and snapping  a few photos.  It was so peaceful and relaxing.
Hum?  I wonder if I could sneak away with a hand full of grapes this summer and not get caught.  Ha ha!  


 So, back to this new blogger format...
I haven't posted in a few days so I'm feeling a little lost.  When did this happen anyway.  I'm not sure if I like it or not.  It's just I have to learn something new all over again.
What do you all think?  If you have any tips or suggestions please pass them on. 
I'm having a little trouble with the font size.  It looks either to small or to big.  I don't want it to be difficult to read.  Every once in a while I run across a blog that has tiny print. Ugh!

 I also have another new thing to share. 
I am now officially on Facebook.
I know, It's about time. Ha ha!
After I figure it all out, I will post a link so that we can be "friends" with each other. 

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

Coconut Cupcakes
My daughter and I made this terrific cupcake over the weekend.
We found the recipe at Your Cup of Cake
Lizzy has some of the best cupcake ideas ever!
Everything about this cupcake is sooooo good!
You will have to pop on over to her blog to get the recipe.
You won't be disappointed!
The cake part has a mild coconut flavoring and also the cream cheese frosting.
But the chocolate frosting puts it over the top!
I could make myself sick eating theses little babies!
Thanks for stopping by.
Leave a comment, I love to hear from ya' all!

Another Broccoli Salad
Sorry my post has bee so sporadic lately. Things are a little hectic here from time to time. I have enjoyed blogging and reading all of your post greatly. So many of you are so talented and have been so up lifting for me. At times I'm laughing at some of the things you all come up with and other times tears are running down my cheeks. I want you to know how blessed I feel to have gotten to know you all.
God bless you and Happy Easter!
I know I've posted a broccoli salad before, but this one is very yummy. I wanted a fast easy salad I could through together. Also, it's such a pretty salad to serve to guest.
My friends at work planned a pot luck last week and this was my contribution.
Ha ha. I can't blame this one on Pioneer Woman.
1 bag of broccoli flowers
2-3 Tablespoons sunflower seeds
1/2 cup dried Craisins
6 slices crumbled bacon
3 green onions sliced
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 Tablespoons sugar
Mix all ingredients. Add bacon last when ready to serve. That way it won't get soggy and soft.
I don't want the salad to be dripping. Use as much as you would like for your taste.
That's it!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!
