Chipotle Mango Preserves – Crazy Ingredient Challenge

I had so many ideas for the Crazy Ingredient Challenge this month when we picked mangoes and chipotles. But I am definitely glad I chose these Chipotle Mango Preserves.

Smothered Greens

Confession time: I hated greens as a kid but I love them now. My Dad grew Swiss chard and I would do anything to avoid eating it. Now I like all kinds of greens: dandelion, collard, mustard, chard, beet and turnips. Especially when you cook them with bacon and onions.

Raspberry Rose Sugar Cookies – Fill the Cookie Jar

It is time to Fill the Cookie Jar with Mother’s Day themed cookies. On the first Thursday of every month, a group of bloggers all post a cookie recipe based on a monthly theme. Be sure to check out the recipes the others made at the bottom of this post.

I am so excited about the cookies I made this month. I got the idea months ago and saved it because I knew it would be PERFECT for Mother’s Day. How many Moms are going to get roses on Mother’s day? My guess is quite a bit of the $2.5 billion expected to be spent on flowers this Mother’s Day will be roses.

But, I know some moms that are going to get Raspberry Rose Sugar Cookies instead!

And in my vision those sandwiches are Cucumber Sandwiches and Watercress Sandwiches and look something like this:
