And if you missed out on the first round

Grow. Swap. Share. Blog Swap


Did you all know I had my first guest post last month?  Like my first time guest posting on someone else’s blog and the first time having someone on my blog.  It was so much fun coming with with a post just for my Trading Blogs buddy.  When Carrie at My Favorite Finds asked me if I knew the next time Trading Blogs was happening a light bulb went off.

Pioneer Woman’s Sour Cream Noodle Bake

Sour Cream Noodle Bake Feat

I love Kristan at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned this once or twice, or like fifty times.  She’s sparkly, loves pink, makes wonderful treats like these and these, and she’s HIL-AR-IOUS!!  I’m so glad she is one of the first blogs I started when I entered blog-land.     Well, Kristan has another blog with her bloggy bestie Shelly from Cookies & Cups.  It’s called That’s

Croque Monsieur Strata

Crouque Monsieur Strata FEAT

I’m kind of nerd about the whole French cooking thing.  I love Julie & Julia.  I used to watch Julia Child on PBS when I was little.  The the SNL skit…priceless!  Maybe it’s the years of studying French or the fact that they put lots of butter in everything.  I don’t know.  But when Tony Bourdain has a Paris episode of The Layover or No Reservations, I watch it a million times

Cookie Christmas Tree

Cookie Christmas Tree FEAT

It’s time I face the inevitable.  I need to make big girl decorated cookies for once in my life.  Bake at 350 was one of the very first blogs I started following.  Bridget is a cookie genius and master of all things decorated with royal icing.  Soon after finding Bridget, I found Giselle at Baking in Heels.  She makes awesomely decorated cookies too.  Yes, I’m jealous of their cookies.  After

One Lucky Blogger Giveaway! {Closed}


  Every once in a while it is nice to throw together a group giveaway to show another fellow blogger a little love and support.  As bloggers, we appreciate ALL of our readers.  But we also know that many of our biggest supporters and most loyal readers are other fellow bloggers.     March is known for the luck of the Irish, and leprechauns, and pots of gold at the

WLOW 1st Birthday


I can’t believe it’s been a year.  One year since I put up my very first post and decided to start a blog.  Ready to hear how all this started?   I sent a link to craftgawker to my friend Laura via Facebook.  She’s super crafty, she can sew, and she’s a great photographer.  I thought, “She has to know about this sight.  It’s too good.”  Then the following comment
