If you have been following my foodie adventures for a while
now, you know I absolutely love appetizers.
I take pleasure in a one to two bite delight that is packed with flavor
and is full of various textures. Even
when we are at home regardless of the day of the week, enjoying appetizers
makes us feel like we are celebrating.
night was the 2 hour season premier and we could hardly wait to view it. We actually don’t call it Cedar Cove but
rather “the feel good show” since overall it is a happy show with some twists
and turns along the way. We felt the premier
deserved an appetizer dinner along with a great bottle of wine.

me and chose this recipe to make.
Secret Recipe Club and it has been a great adventure. This month, I have decided to make it my last
month. With my busy career, being a DOLE
Ambassador, blog commitments and life, my plate is full and unfortunately something
had to give. I thought long and hard
about my decision. This group has some
absolutely lovely bloggers and I have enjoyed purusing through their blogs over
the years and making some absolutely stunning recipes. Thank you to Debbi who has been the Group C
leader the entire time I have been involved – you have been simply great!
