Silhouette October Promotion {Recipe: Homemade Grape Jelly}

Homemade Grape Jelly Recipe dineanddish.net

I know it's way too early to start talking the holidays, but if you are thinking of making homemade gifts for your friends and family this year, NOW is the time to get a move on. I'm sorry to rush you, but if you are anything like me you have grand plans for a homemade holiday and then December comes around and you realize you have ZERO time to be able to create something. This is my first year owning a Silhouette Cameo, and I'll be honest with you... I'm still learning how to use it, however, I hope by the time Christmas rolls around I'll have some mad Cameo skills and will be able to rock out some awesome gifts for friends and family! There is nothing quite like a wonderful, homemade gift from the heart to make people feel loved. If you don't own a Silhouette Cameo or Silhouette Portrait, I have a quick promotion to share with you that will give you HUGE savings on the machine and some really great accessories (like adhesive labels to add that special touch to your homemade gifts!). If you act in the next few days you can take advantage of these great deals -->  … [Continue reading]

Disconnected {Recipe: 3 Ingredient Shortbread Cookies}

3 Ingredient Simple Shortbread Cookies

Have I mentioned I've deleted all the social media apps from my phone? Instagram has stayed, but everything else has gone. In addition, I'm keeping my phone downstairs instead of having it in my bedroom next to my bed. Some of you with the same addiction to being connected may understand how hard this has been for me. Others of you, who have a healthy relationship with social media and your phones may not. Either way, I knew it was something I needed to do to become more present in my life, less sidetracked when I should be on task, and more productive.  … [Continue reading]

A Little Lemon {Recipe: Lemon Basil Bruschetta}

Lemon Basil Bruschetta by www.dineanddish.net

There was a time when I would sign up to bring anything to a party BUT an appetizer. I've never been very good at appetizers, until I discovered the ease and versatility of Bruschetta. This Lemon Basil Bruschetta was the perfect idea to take to my friend, Liz's, Virtual Baby Shower! I'm sure you know Liz from The Lemon Bowl, right? She's having another baby boy very soon and a few of her friends and I decided to throw her a virtual baby shower to celebrate! I'm all for baby showers and people having babies and all, but I really must confess that I'm a little annoyed with Liz for having another boy... she's kind of got the market on cuteness with her first son, Asher. I'm not sure what she's trying to pull bringing more cute into the world. Sounds like some kind of crazy blog stunt to me! (That's Asher, hanging out with me in Michigan this summer... little did I know at that point that he's kind of a ladies man and I'm pretty sure has long forgotten about me by now. I still love him though!) … [Continue reading]
