When I was visiting Michaela's site, An Affair from the Heart, I had no difficulty picking a recipe since it is May, and time for thinking about Memorial Day picnics. Her Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake Trifle sounded delicious and easy, two things I like! Such a great recipe to share with The Secret Recipe Club readers!
What's the Secret Recipe Club? It's a group of bloggers who love to cook and share recipes on a monthly basis. Each month we are assigned to a food blog where we explore to our hearts content, then choose a recipe to duplicate. On Reveal Day, we find out who had our blog and what they chose to make!
As I was checking out the blog, I found these other delights, too! These Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs will definitely make it to a Tiger Tailgate or two this fall! I am huge fan of eggnog so these Frosted Eggnog Cookies are already on my list for Christmas.
I loved reading about Michaela. She's married to her sweetheart and she's the mother of four, with a set of twins! She loves everything about the creating of a party, and her blog is full of great information from food, to tablescaping and invites!
