Oooooo...this looks scrumptious. I'm going to have to try this recipe soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a footprint of your visit in my comment box. I appreciate the opportunity to return the visit.

And I love your leisure house guestroom with the seashell motif. Oh yes, I do love it. And the peek through the doorway at that picture with the breeze blowing the curtain...oh my... I feel the refreshing and the bliss.

Wishing you a beautiful day ahead!
