Style Me Pretty


Isn't she precious?
A Vintage Wedding inspired by none other than Audry Hepburn herself. I know not all of you are married so I thought I would put up a link to Style Me Pretty. Not only can you find more pictures from this charming wedding, but you can also find wedding vendors and tons of ideas for your future "Big Day". One of my favorite vendors Smock Paper can be found on the sidebar on the lower right hand side.

Majority of what has been posted is recipes (duh! we're girls and we looove to cook!) I automatically had to share the love of this splendid little food website to all you ladies.

Yummy Mint Goodness

My mother used to make butter mints all the time at Christmas. You know, the little pillow-like pieces of sugar that taste of minty goodness. Derek and I made some last night, and I must admit: I forgot how wonderful even the dough is! It's the easiest recipe on the planet and SOO good-great to add to that plate of cookies you take your friends and neighbors.

Butter Mints
1/4 cup of butter-nearly melted
3 oz. cream cheese
1lb powdered sugar
1/4 tsp mint extract

Mix all ingredients together. Add food coloring if desired. Then, roll dough out into thin snakes and cut into pieces with butter knife. Set on wax paper to dry out for about 24 hours. ENJOY.
