Friday Favorites: Featured Blogger Edition!

Happy Friday! Every Friday, I link up with Katie from Cup of Tea, Della from Della Devoted, Tif from Bright on a Budget and Becky from BYBMG and this week, they chose me to be their featured blogger! Thank you so so much to Katie, Della, Tif and Becky for featuring me and for hosting this link up every week! Now onto some of the best things going on in my life right now...

1. Last weekend, my family celebrated my Gammie's 81st birthday and I got to make the cake! I love baking for loved ones and this cake was a big hit! I posted about the cake on Wednesday, you can find all of the details HERE.

2. My family went sugaring off on Easter Sunday and it could not have been anymore fun! We rode on a horse drawn carriage, ate a delicious meal (with lots of maple syrup), had maple taffy on snow (in french we call this 'la tire') and so much more! We went to the cutest little place called 'Sucrerie de la Montagne' and I'll be sharing of the details next week!
3. I made orange cranberry muffins over the weekend and they have been the very best snack all week long! This recipe will likely be up early next week! I have loved having muffins as a snack in the mornings - I made Lemon Poppy Seed last week and Orange Cranberry this week. What should I do next? If you have a favorite muffin recipe I would love to try it!

4. Last night, my family had Chili Lime Chicken Tacos with Grilled Pineapple Salsa and now I'm really craving Summer! These tacos are the most delicious twist on traditional tacos and they make such a great spring/summer meal! The recipe will be up soon!

5. Speaking of tacos... Cinco de Mayo is coming up soon and I can hardly wait! I love celebrating just about everything and any excuse to eat Mexican food and listen to latin music sounds good to me! Last year, my family set up a little burrito bar, made churros and I made a little donkey piƱata for decor! I also love that Cinco de Mayo happens on a regular work/school day - I love that we all go about our business during the day and meet back at home for a fun little fiesta! I will be sure to blog about our Cinco de Mayo festivities this year!
