The Weekend Retreat Link Party #51

collage label (1)

Wahoo for another great week at The Weekend Retreat!!  I love seeing what everyone has been up.  This party really gets my tummy rumbling and my mind thinking of the creative things I would love to do.    So please help us keep this party getting bigger and bigger and help us share the word!


Each week we’ll be doing a Featured Blog Spot to help introduce you guys to the different bloggers that link up with us! We’ll be including a main photo along with a few of our favorite posts w/ links back to the blog so you can stop by, check em out and say hi while you’re there! This week our featured blogger is Ciara from Teaspoon of Life!


Ciara really enjoys cooking and likes to try new recipes in the kitchen. She loves being a wife and a mother to her kids. I enjoy her blog because most of her recipes are simple and easy. For me, that is huge! I like having easy and healthy meals on the table for my family! Check out a few of posts here: Beef Barbecue Stir Fry, Chicken and Dumpling Soup, No Bake Oreo Cheesecake.

* Featured Blog Spot will be chosen at random from bloggers that have linked up at The Weekend re-Treat!
