Who Am I?

  • My life as a wife, mother, and child of God. I can tell a good joke, but only at my own expense. I can tell ya how to parent, but only by first failing. And I can tell you how to get to Heaven, but you gotta get there on your own.

That looks pretty good! Might have to try it.


I love it...and it looks like a cream cheese and tomato basil cake. You posted something that wasn't cake that still looks like cake. Ha.

Jessica @ How Sweet

That is so beautiful. Surely something I would love!

You know that when people care about each other, they make each other fancy dip, right?

I'll be waiting for mine here in Arkansas. You can just mail it or whatever. :)

Amanda Rettke

Oh. My. Goodness Shaina.  You are SOOOO right!!  What a dork I am!!!

CM @ A Little Lilac

Wow, that's just lovely! Like one of those things that's almost too beautiful to eat...


TOTALLY making this. Mouth watering. It won't look like this but if it tastes as good as yours looks, I will be happy =)

Looks delicious. Of course, your photograpy skills are stellar. I've been trying to come up with a new dish for Christmas and I think this one might be it. Thanks for sharing. Hope you had a great vacation.

Looks delicious - and I think it might just be worth all the effort!

Hope you are your family are well - have not visited your blog in AGES!


Everything you make is so pretty! Could you become a professional food photographer? (Your other pictures are amazing, too; but your food ones are just always perfect!)
I think this would be a few weeks when salty food doesn't make my stomach turn! Ug!


That is such a unique and lovely dip! Love the presentation.


That looks like a Christmas Day treat!

Mary C.

WOW! Sorry to yell, but this is beautiful. Who wants to take the first dip and ruin it :(


Well, I tried this for my ladies Christmas party. It tasted DELICIOUS! However, mine didn't look as pretty as yours Amanda, but everyone kept saying, wow, that looks amazing. But it did taste great! Thanks for the great idea.
