DIY foodie projects and gifts


In case you missed it on this weeks Mondays with Michelle over at Makes me wanna Holler...

I don't know about you, but I love a good Do-it-yourself project, especially ones that bring some extra yumminess to your kitchen (and save you some $)! And although it's a little early to be thinking about the holiday season, these two DIY projects also make for wonderful gifts for your foodie friends and family.

Vegan for a week...

Those of you that follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram already know that I went Vegan this week. I have been having some health issues and in light of all the food and health documentaries I have been watching I thought I'd do an experiment on myself. I'm already pretty certain that most dairy foods are the culprit, but I thought why not just wipe the slate clean and see how my body responds. I have to admit, I had to get a little creative to keep this week yummy, but it wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be. Here are some of the yummy things I ate this week...

Football season eats...

Football season is officially underway, so now is the perfect time to revisit my "Host(ess) with the Most(est) series that I posted on Makes me wanna holler around this time last year. These dishes are delicious staples that never go out of style. You will find recipes for Mediterranean Chicken Skewers with Greek Yogurt Dipping Sauce, Homemade Salsa and Guacamole, and my Famous Spinach Dip with Crostini... make sure you check it out!





For some new additions to your party food arsenal, check out my Party Food board on Pinterest. Here's a little peak at what you will find....
