I hope all of you mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day and those of you like me, who have lost your mother, were able to enjoy your day focusing on happy memories.  My Mini Personal Pinterest Challenge (MPPC) from last Friday's post was a success in trying to keep me distracted.

I'm so glad I only chose three projects to work on; five would have been way too much pressure and would have taken the fun out of the challenge.  I took pictures as I worked on the projects/recipe I set out to complete.  What I didn't plan on was the chalkboard paint needing a few days to cure before I could write on them.  Or the box I painted for my journal project needing a day or so to dry.  So, it will be a couple of days before I can complete them, but they will get finished!  I swear!  Also, there are too many pictures to put in one post so I will probably break it up into a few different posts this week.

BONUS:  Since I can't update you on my other projects quite yet, I'll give you a quick run down on a bonus I decided to sneak into the challenge.  I have had my eye on a recipe for Blue Cheese Bacon Dip for a while.  In fact, Pinterest says I pinned the recipe 17 weeks ago.  That's a lot of time to be drooling, right?  Well, here goes...

Doesn't that make your mouth water?!
Ok, the recipe was originally posted by Josie at Pink Parsley.  If you haven't ever checked out his site, you should.   It has a lot of really great recipes.   Now, back on track, Josie gives original credit to Southern Living magazine from 2004.  How have I not known about this recipe for 8 years?!  This recipe was simple AND delicious, two of my favorite things!  The only thing I would do differently would be to add some extra blue cheese crumbles so it's extra cheesier.
This is the dip in a small, 6x8ish, Pyrex dish as it goes in the oven.

This is the dish as it came out of the oven and had bacon crumbles added on top.

It was so good you will want your own dish so
you can double dip your  crackers, chips, fruit, etc.
You'll most certainly want to.

Sooooooooooo good!
If you give this recipe a try, be sure to let me know what you think.  I'll be back later this week with MPPC details.  See you then!

  1. I was looking forward to this update and then there was no update, way to tease me! At least you left me with a drooling mouth though, must try this recipe.

    1. You are not the first to call me a tease. Sorry. Yes, the recipe is a must try. I have a little surprise in the works for this series so I'm trying to make it detailed. I will be posting them in the next day or two so stay tuned and I promise the next will be the real deal. Thanks for popping in!
