Showcase Your Talent Thursday #71

Welcome to
Showcase Your Talent Thursday!!
What's cooking, love?
I hope that everyone is having a great week! We are leaving our son overnight with our in-laws for the first time and are going to Niagara Falls for the weekend.  I am excited about spending alone time with my husband but don’t like the fact that we will be away from Aaron for a whole weekend.  I’m sure he will have a good time at his grandparents house.  

Did you see that some other bloggers and I are doing a giveaway for a Kitchen Aid mixer, a $300 Target Gift Card, and 10 cookbooks in honor of Ashton from Something Swanky’s birthday!! These are awesome prizes.  If you haven’t already, make sure that you stop by and check it out.

I am also giving away a Wonderful Brands Prize Pack including a beach bag, towel, and a variety of nuts.  Make sure you check that out too!

Thanks to everyone that linked up last week! I loved looking at all the great projects that were linked up! There were so many great ideas, I always have a hard time picking the features!   I can’t wait to see what you have to share this week!!

Spiced Blackberry Upside Down Cake by True Blue Baking.

My Favorites:

Almond Blueberry Biscotti

Almond Blueberry Biscotti by The Adventures of MJ and Hungryman.  These biscotti look fantastic.  I love the combination of the blueberries and almonds and I bet this would be great dipped in coffee.

Summer Salad with Blackberry Vinaigrette | Cooking on the Front Burner

Summer Salad with Blackberry Vinaigrette Dressing by Cooking on the Front Burner. This salad looks great and perfect for summer. I love all the fresh berries.

How to Make Cake Toppers in Microsoft Word by A Typical English Home.  This is such a great tutorial.  I love the idea of making my own cake toppers and will have to try this.

Watermelon Cupcakes by Sugar Kissed.  These cupcakes are so cute! These would be great for a summer picnic!
