Over the weekend I made these beauties, Blackberry Cheesecake Mousse from Snixy Kitchen visit her for lots of great recipes and lovely food pics. Delicious, light, creamy, not too sweet, not too tart, and they look so pretty...and fast. They are the perfect treat, great for a summer BBQ.

Stuffed Cherry Blossom Sugar Cookies


If you love almond sugar cookies, this is the perfect recipe for you! They are so delicious and really fun to make. This was my first attempt to make stuffed cookies, I'll definitely be making these again. They would make a great gift for the cherry, almond, or cookie lover in your life. How cute in a gift basket with teas! They have man approval too, my honey took some to work to share...they liked.
The recipe is from love & olive oil. You'll find lots of great recipes and she just came out with an new cookbook called Breakfast for Dinner it's going on my Amazon Wishlist for sure!
Happy baking! xoxojolleen

What I Wore || Instagram Me

What I Wore this week...

I love how long and simple these earrings are, they make a great accent piece to dress up any outfit.

I was getting dressed and wanted to wear this gold belt. 
It wasn't working as a belt....then I glanced at my arm (light bulb)- wear it as a bracelet! 
Works perfect...I will be doing this again, great multi use for skinny belts.

Silver and black double finger leopard ring - amazing I know! 
My sister got it for me for Christmas. I really like how the tail curls up on your pinkie.
