Game Day Food

Typical conversation with my husband. ‘There’s a <insert sport> game coming up. What should we make to eat?’  Isn’t that everyone’s first question?

Display Table Background

Want to kick up your display table?  I’ve got a great, easy (and cheap!) way.  Just add a background.  In fact, I wish I had thought of this when I made a candy buffet for my son’s birthday.  Oh well.  Maybe that means I need to make another candy buffet??  Hmmmm… I have other ideas for …
