It’s Blog Party Time!

Food, fun, and friends.  I love a good party! Over at 5 Minutes for Mom, the Ultimate Blog Party 2009 has begun.  A Finer Things welcome to all who are visiting from there!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

In my little corner of the blogosphere, I celebrate faith, motherhood, simplicity, tiny towns, and good home cookin’.  I am convinced that we can live joy-filled lives with less if we focus on the Finer Things.

Here, enjoy a slice  of chocolate chip cheesecake.  See what I mean?  It’s the little things that make life grand!

You can find more of my favorite recipes, such as cavatini, pizza braid, and Skor Cake on my Recipes page.


Be sure to visit Finer Things Friday before you go, and link up with a post of your own!  You’re welcome to join us every Friday.  What Finer Things are you celebrating this week?

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Subscribe in a reader or by email, and follow me on Twitter so we can get to know one another.

Head on over to 5 Minutes for Mom for more fun and prizes!

  4. Chocolate Chip Cheesecake? You just spoke to this cheesecake-chocoholic’s heart!

    I agree about living fuller lives with less. I am currently trying to cut down on the things that my family and I consume and I am realizing that I don’t need a lot of it. Who knew life would go on without so much TV?! 😉

    Thanks for your post, I enjoyed meeting you!

  5. Your cheesecake looks like it is to die for. I think you have the right idea about the finer things. I’m looking forward to you teaching more about them as I get to know you better in the weeks to come.

They’ve totally replaced magazines for me. So nice to meet you! Have a magical day!
