  1. Geneva! How wonderful! Can’t wait to hear your trip report, April. 🙂 And your lemon desserts look delightful!

    This week I’m linking up Almond Joysicles (yes, almond joy popicles–in the 90s here this week!) and Paleo Sweet “Cornbread Muffins (for the folks who are grain free but need a cornbread fix!).

    Hope you have a great week after the wonderful start in Switzerland!

  2. Hi April,
    I noticed that you had a lovely weekend in Geneva, it looked very relaxing. Your Lemon desserts would be delicious with some afternoon tea. Have a great week and thanks so much for the party!

  10. Hello cute lady! I always get so excited to stop by your party each week. It’s so fabulous! Please take a moment to party with us. We pin and tweet everything! Lou Lou Girls

  11. WOWWW
    I’m just seeing it now – thank you for the feature April!! ❤
    I hope you enjoyed Geneva 🙂 It’s a beautiful city, but I don’t much like it as there is almost no place for us to eat….

    • I’m so glad you are pleased, Winnie! Geneva was lovely but I can see where it would be challenging in terms of menus for you. I think it would also be challenging for anyone who was gluten free too!

  12. Hi April,
    Nice to be back at the hop with you all. Thanks so much for hosting tis fun party!

  13. April, I’m going to check out your vegetarian dishes this weekend. I love eating vegetarian meals, and I even sneak a few past my husband!

  14. I hope that you enjoyed your surprise, so nice of him to surprise you!!

    Have a great weekend, Karren
