Happiness Is Homemade

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party

Is it a hot summer or what? We are always quite warm here in Florida but hot temps are sweeping across the country. Even Boston is experiencing high temps. It is hard to think of working outside with this weather. I can't seem to get the energy to do any projects that involve being outside. Are you lucky enough to have cool weather or are you dealing with high temps too?

Don't forget to check out comments from our hostess - Katie:

Here it is....... Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #280!  What a great link party we had last week, and now we are ready for the next one.

Our weather has been so hot and humid for our region that we've been trying to find family activities that keep us cool.  Movies, swimming and air-conditioned library visits have been high on our list lately :)

What has your weather been like lately?

I am so excited for you to see my featured posts this week, and congratulations to those bloggers for their great content!

This week's features for Happiness Is Homemade #280

I personally did not purchase anything during Prime Day on Amazon last week, but I know that many people don't take advantage of all the neat things that come with their membership.  This post from Jennifer Lambert at A Sacred Balance explains it all - How To Get the Most from Amazon Prime.

About a week ago I took the kids out and picked 22 pounds of fresh cherries - dirt cheap and so easy to pick!  Look at this amazing looking recipe from Flour on My Face for Sweet Cherry Preserves, I'll be making this for sure!

I love making sweet treats to take to picnics, parties and gatherings.  These Mini Oreo Cheesecakes from A Labour of Life look so tasty - not to mention easy to take on-the-go!

As we get ready for our big family trip to Disney at the end of August, I keep hearing SO many good things about their pineapple dole whip.  Apparently it is iconic.  In preparation for how much I am going to love this Disney treat, I found this Copycat Dole Pineapple Whip recipe.  Any dole whip experts out there?  Try this recipe and let us know what you think.  

We have a very tall, wide and empty wall behind our TV in the family room.  I've been waiting for an opportunity to decorate it with some shelving, pictures, etc.  But I found this awesome tutorial with instructions on How To Create Your Own Multi Panel Split Canvas Print from Drugstore Divas - I think I found the perfect decor!

  1. Bev,
    Today is supposed the last day of our heat wave!! I have been stuck in the house, only sneaking out yesterday morning to do some quick watering of my pots so my flowers don't all die!!
    Thanks so much for hosting each week!!

    1. Debbie,
      I hope your weather cooled down. Ours got a little cooler the other night when a rain storm came through but it is back up there. More rain this week with Barry moving inland. At least I don't have to water. Thanks for stopping by.
