BLOG UNDER CONSTRUCTION

WELCOME to my blog… under construction. PLEASE NOTE if you are visiting for the first time or a long time fan, all my LINKS from Pinterest and just if you saved a favorite recipe, all links are broken. Most likely if you clicked on a saved link from somewhere it says “that page cannot be found”, but Do NOT worry, the recipe is STILL HERE, just lost in internet space. This happened when I had an error on my blog and someone tried to help me and basically destroyed my entire blog in the process.

THERE IS HOPE. Example: If you look at the URL of the link (recipe) you are trying to find, note the original post date, IE: 9/2012, just look in the original URL for month/year and then you can click on the ARCHIVE below under 2012 / September and then click the recipe name.

I am in the process of trying to fix my blog, but links cannot be restored, so basically my 4+ years of blogging is wasted and I am re-building from scratch. AHHHHH, okay! So…. HERE WE GO….

Cucumber Salad: Secret Recipe Club

Secret Recipe Club
Cucumber Salad
This month is my second month in the Secret Recipe Club and I am now a Co-Host for SRC Group B. Today, is reveal day for Group B and I am so excited to be partnering with all of you to bring this great post today that is sharing over 60 recipes from all different kinds of bloggers.

Secret Recipe Club

If you've never heard of Secret Recipe Club then you are in for a treat. It works like this, all of us below that you see linked up were assigned a blog at the beginning of the month, we read, get to know and then bake/cook from that blog (but, it's a SECRET), we know someone is looking at our blog, but we don't know who until reveal day, TODAY! If you'd like more information on joining the SRC, then hop on over to our Secret Recipe Club Blog and check it out!

My Secret Recipe Blog this month is: Lady Behind The Curtain
This blog is just not about cooking/baking, it's also about parties! And I LOVE hosting a party! I found a few recipes I'd love to make, but since my house is "dieting" this week, I decided to pick a light recipe and her Cucumber Salad was just perfect. I didn't want to eat the cucumbers alone, so I made a nice Garden Salad, that was just right! I think I will be enjoying another one of these today for lunch. (I love left-overs!)


Cucumber Garden Salad
found and adapted from Lady Behind the Curtain

4 cucumbers
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup Splenda (I used real sugar)
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill (I used 1/2 tbsp dried dill)
1/4 tsp pepper

Cut cucumbers into thin slices. Toss with 2 teaspoons of salt. Marinate at room temperature for 1 hour. Drain liquid from cucumbers and add remaining ingredients. Stir, cover and refrigerate 3 hours before serving.

To make a Garden Salad: I added lettuce, tomato, avocado and my favorite dressing: Poppyseed.

Thank You Lady in the Curtain for letting me poke around your blog!
A few other recipes I would love to try or at least they were too cute not to mention:
And if only it was 4th of July still... I would have totally made these. I think they are so darn CUTE!
Mini Firecracker Cupcakes (I will have to remember these for next year)
