Gearing up for July 4th

While trying to plan my menu for our 4th of July barbecue (I hope the weather holds up!), I remembered one of my favorite appetizers from Smitten Kitchen, Feta Salsa. If you are not familiar with Smitten Kitchen run and check out her amazing blog! This Mediterranean inspired appetizer includes some of my favorite flavors like Kalamata olives and feta cheese. Plus, this recipe is very adaptable. Last time I made it I didn't have scallions on hand, so I used capers and it still turned out wonderful. Serve it with pita chip, sliced baguette, flat bread or whatever you have handy. Yum!

Working in Style

I stumbled across this great laptop sleeve on Etsy this morning and fell in love with it. Handcrafted by WatermelonWishes, it is made from 100% cotton designer fabric and has a fully lined quilted interior to offer a little added protection. It is affordably priced and shipping is free! What could be better than that? Besides laptop sleeves, they carry tote bags, diaper bags, notepad covers and has lots of options for design-your-own products. You can check out WatermelonWishes' Etsy Shop by clicking HERE.
