Playing in the kitchen …


With summer time comes summer parties.  Seems almost everyone is having one.  Even me.  I've been in a kitchen creating mood lately.  No particular reason other than life is art, even in the kitchen.

This week's kitchen crafts included the 7 layer bean dip and The Blue Jersey Girl, a drink I made up for my fun Twitter friend @TrueJerseyGirl.
