Welcome to 
Showcase Your Talent Thursday!!

What's cooking, love?

I hope that everyone is having a great week!  I can’t wait until this weekend. My birthday is on Sunday.  My mom and sister and I are going for massages and lunch on Saturday and then on Sunday, my son, husband, and I will probably go out to dinner.  I hope that everyone has a fantastic weekend!

 Thanks to everyone that linked up last week! I can’t wait to see everything that you have to share this week!!  
The most viewed link: 

Slow Cooker Garlic and Brown Sugar Chicken by What’s Cooking in the Burbs.  This chicken looks so delicious. This looks like a great an easy meal!

My Favorites:

Kit-Kat Cake by Love Bakes Good Cakes.  This cake looks amazing!!! I have seen a bunch of these kit-kat cakes around, but I really like this version because it is a Peanut Butter Cake with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting, Reese’s Pieces, and of course Kit-Kats! You can’t get any better than that!

Root Beer Float Cupcakes by Country Momma Cooks.  I used to have root beer floats all the time as a kid.  These cupcakes take me back.  They look wonderful!

Shirt to Pillow Upcycle by SaltTree.  This pillow is so cute! What a great way to reuse a shirt that you don’t want anymore!

Harry Potter Party by Sugar Bean Bakers.  This party looks like it was fantastic!! I am a fan of the Harry Potter books, so I really like all of the ideas that she came up with!

Pecan Pie Muffins by Call Me PMc.  These muffins so delicious! These a a great alternative to making a whole pecan pie!
