I am extremely excited to share with you guys that two Hungry Happenings recipes have hit the newsstands this summer and are in some magazines!
At 7:23 p.m. today, a boy, no actually a man, will get off a plane from Russia and I’ve been frantically getting ready for his visit. The last time he was here, he was 16. Now 21, I’m not sure how he will have changed, all I know is that I can’t wait to see him. His sister will arrive on Sunday and both will stay until month’s end.
Needless to say, I’ve been crazy busy trying to get projects done for my blog, create recipes for my freelance gigs, and clean my house. Have you ever started to clean then couldn’t stop? What started as just a bit of organizing turned into a major purge. Twelve boxes went to be shred, endless garbage cans went to the curb, even more went into the recycling bins, and the back end of my car was filled with donations twice. Every room is clean and boy does it feel good.
I must have had a heavy load on my shoulders recently as I’ve felt the need to clean house and clean up my blog. Now I feel ready to take on the world. Well, O.K, at least Woman’s World.
Two of my recipes, my Wedding Cake Cheese Ball and my Red, White, and Blue Dip were featured in summer issues of Woman’s World Magazine. I really wasn’t aware of the dates of publication until reader’s let me know they saw my smiling face in the magazine.
One reader wrote to share with me a picture of the wedding cake cheese ball she created after seeing mine in the magazine.
Not only did Cindy make a beautiful wedding cake cheese ball, she piped a rose out of cream cheese to place on top. She said the guests at the wedding shower had no trouble cutting into her masterpiece. They devoured it. I love to hear that and I am always so happy to get e-mail’s from my readers with pictures of what they created.
Have you made something from one of my recipes? Have you sent me a picture so I can share in my Readers’ Gallery? You can send them to me at email@example.com.
Here are a few more wedding cake cheese balls from readers.
Doris used to decorate cakes which is evident by the lovely piping on her cheese ball wedding cake. She served her cake to guests at a wedding reception and they were in awe of her creation.
Angela created this wedding cake cheese ball for her sister’s bridal shower. She didn’t have the cookie cutters needed for the project, so she used bowls to mold her cake layers. I love how she used dill to decorate the side of the cake. It really adds a nice visual element.
