Friday's Scissors and Cream! (orzo salad, pineapple cake and photography prop )

For those who are new to our blog I have taken on the challenge to broaden my domestic goddess talents. I will be posting "first attempts" to crafts and recipes each week for your entertainment success or total failure! I call these my Friday's scissor and cream posts. Enjoy...

This week I tried two different recipes and a photography prop.

In the kitchen:

Orzo Salad with spicy buttermilk dressing
Thanks to the fabulous blog called little birdie secrets we were able to have this tasty side dish with our lemon sole and salad from our garden. I used powdered buttermilk and it worked well as a substitute and I didn't have a whole carton of buttermilk laying around waiting for another recipe. This is a great recipe for the kids too! Danagan LOVES spices and he was convinced to eat more veggies. yay!

Yellow Butter Cake with Pineapple Glaze and Coconut

We had a last minute Family Luau at our house and I experimented with my brand new bundt cake pan! You can find the 2 ingredient glaze recipe and alternative yummy cake on this blog.

We shot a beautiful vintage wedding a couple weeks ago and just got done with the final touches. I found this idea from another photographer following this blog
