  1. Thanks for hosting! A nice ice tee and plate of Just Divine Chicken Salad sounds good for summer!

    See you next week,

  2. Hi April!

    Thank you so much for having featured my post! That’s wonderful 🙂

  3. This week I share my last post. A salty yogourth sponge cake.
    Have a nice week!

  4. April, your banana muffins look scrummy! And do tell me about the teapot in the muffin photo. Thank you for hosting. I’m going to check out the beet soup first. I’ve never made a beet soup.

    • Thank you so much, Jean! The Blue Willow china belonged to my great-grandmother, and came over in a steamer trunk (which I still have!) on the boat from England in the early 1900’s. The set didn’t have a tea pot though (I’m not sure whether it got broken or whether there just wasn’t one.) Anyway, my lovely husband spent ages trying to find a tea pot from the same Blue Willow design (as you know, there are so many!). He eventually did and surprised me with it. Needless to say I was delighted 🙂 Thank you for asking 🙂

  5. Hi April,
    Thanks so much for the awesome feature for my Summertime Sweets Recipe Collection, what a lovely surprise. Your muffins are just delightful and I have a surprise for you and your muffins. Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for the party!
