My sister, Tara, is getting married in May. We had a wedding shower for her at my mother's house on Saturday. It was a really nice shower. She had some of her friends come, along with some of our family. Pictured above is "the bride to be" Tara, with one of her friends (forgive me for not putting your name but I know I'll mess up the spelling), mom who is holding my youngest, "D", and Nana, our grandmother. Tara was "showered" with lots of household items and we all had a really nice time.

The menu:

Oriential Chicken Salad

Sugared Peanuts

Deviled Eggs


Hershey's Bliss Chocolate

No-Bones Chicken Wing Dip

Crab Stuffed Snow-Peas

Pineapple Cream Cheese Sandwiches

Pimento Cheese Sandwiches

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Chicken Nuggets

Fresh Fruit Tray

Sweet Tea

This is part of the food table. We had lots of yummy goodies. In this photo you can see that we had Oriental Chicken Salad, Sugared Peanuts, Deviled Eggs, cupcakes, Hershey's Bliss Chocolate, No-Bones Chicken Wing Dip, and Crab Stuffed Snow-Peas.

We also had Pineapple-Cream Cheese Sandwiches, Pimento Cheese Sandwiches, Chocolate Chip Cheese Cake Bars, Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, Chicken Nuggets and a Fresh Fruit Tray.

I had several requests for two of my recipes and I thought I would post them here.


1 pkg refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1 (8oz) cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 oz mini-chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350*. Press cookie dough into a foil-lined 13 x 9 inch pan. Beat cream cheese, butter and cornstarch until creamy. Mix in the sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add egg and vanilla then stir in 1/2 of the chocolate chips into the mixture. Pour evenly over the cookie dough and sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips. Bake 25 - 30 minutes. Let cool and cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.

(from Taste of Home April / May 2008)
1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, softened
2 cups (16 oz) sour cream
1 cup blue cheese salad dressing
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
2-1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 block (8oz) provolone cheese, shredded
Baby carrots, celery ribs and crackers

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, salad dressing, and buffalo wing sauce until blended. Stir in chicken and provolone cheese. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350* for 25-30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve warm with carrots, celery and crackers.
