Carrot Easter Wreath

easter-wreath

You guys are well aware...it’s a little known fact that I love making wreaths and surprisingly I have never made an Easter wreath!

Add more water if too dry or add more flour if too wet. From there … [Read more...]

When Abbey & I decided to start this series, we loved the idea of incorporating her readers' love for creating and cooking into a discussion that got even more personal and helped us talk about things near & dear to our hearts. Thus, Recipes of the Heart was birthed, and we are excited to be exploring the theme of Bravery & Courage in our inaugural month.
