Tropical Dream Rice Krispie Treats

And the craziness continues.  We finally found a buyer for our house, that meant we had to go look for a new home.  Last weekend, my mom watched the kids as my husband and I drove fourteen hours down south to look at houses.  We must have looked at about thirty houses the first day and that was all in six hours.  After already owning two houses, we know what we want and what we don't.  Our realtor was awesome, he was patient and understanding.  We were supposed to spend two days looking at house, but since we saw most of our list the first day, we ended up finding "the one" that day. Now it's time to start packing!

Chocolate Strawberry Oreo Truffles

#chocolate #strawberry #oreo #truffles
Today I made some last minute treats for our 4th of July picnic tomorrow.  I love the Oreo and cream cheese combo, but this time I chose to use strawberry flavored cream cheese.  Strawberries and chocolate always go well together.  These are so easy to make and you can adapt them for any party.

Potato Salad with Pickled Beets

Potato Salad with Pickled Beets #salad #potato #pickledbeets #4thofjuly
Summer time means picnics and picnics mean potato salad!  Well, at least to me they do.  I love potato salad, but it has to be homemade.  The store bought ones are either too salty or have too much mayonnaise.  My potato salad has to be just right.  This is the one that my sister-in-law makes and so far it is my favorite.  She uses pickled beets to add flavor.  The pickled beets give it a sweet, but tangy flavor.
