  1. Hi April,
    All of your features look like very enjoyable treats. I am sharing a new recipe this week that I developed from a family favorite, Stacked Enchilada Casserole. Hope you are having a great week and thanks for hosting!

  2. Hi April!
    I shared my recipe for Chocolate Espresso Snowball Cookies. This recipe is gluten free, but it can be made with “regular” flour if you don’t have an issue with gluten.

    Thanks for hosting!

  3. Hi April,

    Thanks so much for highlighting my Wild Orange Chocolate Balls! This week I am sharing recipes for Healthy Chocolate Peppermint Candy, Dairy-Free Pistachio Gelato and a Natural Deodorant to make at home. Take Care!

  4. Thanks for featuring my Lemon Macaroons! Today I shared my Wild Ramps ans an article about drug company kickbacks to doctors.

  5. Good morning April. Today I am sharing a recipe for sweet and zesty coleslaw. Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful week 🙂

  6. Thanks so much for hosting! This week I’ve shared a recipe for making brie baked in a gluten free pie crust (you can use regular pie crust, of course, if you don’t have gluten issues), and served with a fruit compote.

  7. Thanks for hosting April! Next to the last Granny Step this week! We’re expanding our real food knowledge this week. Sharing that real food isn’t really more expensive and my soaked buttermilk biscuit recipe.

  8. I could do serious damage to those lemon coconut macaroons!

  9. Sharing our method for homemade “cultured” buttermilk — so easy and frugal! As always, thanks for hosting, April. 🙂

  10. Hi April! Hope you’re enjoying the sunny weather! I shared my lemon tart in a glass recipe today, perfect for the sunny days ahead (she hopes!)

    Thank you for hosting!

    • We have had some sun, Vicky, and it’s been lovely! I’m just hoping it sticks around 🙂 Thank you for sharing another delicious recipe with the Hop!
