Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #320

Messy Messy Fail - Here's a double whammy - I wanted to make homemade pop tarts for the boys because they love them.  I had a recipe for something more like a pastry strudel that I thought they would just love - WRONG!  "This isn't flat like a pop tart mommy!"  Really?

Tidy Victory - They recipe was still delicious anyways - my husband and I enjoyed eating all of them ourselves the rest of the week.  You can thank me later....

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade Link Party #320

Thanks for joining us again this week at Happiness Is Homemade - here we are in week #8 of quarantine (in Western New York anyways!) but we've been so busy with teaching from home that the time is flying.  I hope it's the same for all of you out there!

I had a great 39th birthday with my family - tuna melts for lunch (yum), marinated pork loin with butter potatoes and asparagus for dinner (double yum) and a sunny spring yellow cake for dessert (triple yum)!  My husband and boys made me feel very special and loved.  The six-pack of Stella (my favorite mommy beer!) was the cherry on the sundae. :D

For my features this week I found so many food posts that I couldn't leave any out, so get ready to tantalize your tastebuds!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #320 Features

I keep a large pot of herbs outside on my deck in the summer but because we live in Western New York, they gotta come in for the winter months. I had a really cute Rae Dunn set of pots but you can guess what happened to one of them.  This tutorial for Farmhouse Style Herb Planters from Pamela of DIY Vibes is the perfect fix to my problem AND much less expensive! :D

Fun fact - scones are actually super easy to make!  These are my favorite baked good to enjoy with a cup of coffee - I'll be trying these Easy Blueberry Scones from Kristy of Mommy Hates Cooking shortly. 

In my house with two boys under the age of 10, we go through ranch dressing more quickly than toilet paper (lolololol quarantine joke lololol!)!!!  They have always asked me to make it from scratch but I was worried it would spoil - DUH it will be gone within DAYS!  I am going to try Keri Lyn's recipe for Easy Homemade Ranch Dressing  from her blog She Saved cause really - how bad could it be?!?!?!?! 

So I don't even think I need to provide an explanation for this one - THIS JUST LOOKS SO FUN AND YUM!  Click and Pin ya'll - Campfire Donuts Recipe from Sarah at Must Have Mom, total no-brainer.

You can clearly see where my mind is this week - EATING EVERYTHING IN SIGHT!  I've always wanted to try making a Tres Leche Cake, it sounds so exotic and sexy don't you think?!?!?!!?  I also have to believe this would be a great light (in texture, lol) dessert for the warm weather.  Thanks to Tracey from The Kitchen Is My Playground for sharing this with us!
