Sugar Free Sunday – June 5, 2011

Welcome to one of the sweetest weekly virtual potluck get-together ever! Yes indeed — it is Sugar Free Sunday! We host it every Sunday to exchange incredible sugar free recipes. Inspiration? You bet!

It is the first week of June and here in the bay area, we have rain. Correction: thunder storms! Joplin has been completely devastated. It feels like the weather all around the country has been playing havoc, when instead we should be welcoming summer! So as I sat here, looking out at the Grey skies at noon, ready to burst, it felt like one of those mornings when all you want to do is snuggle up in a blanket, have a nice cup of super hot tea, watch some mindless TV and wait for the clouds to clear. Other options to mindless TV are mindless internet, but with a 2 year old full of energy, I had to pull myself together, get the “oomph” back :). I started looking for paintings and came across this beautiful Van Gogh called “A Road in Auvers after the Rain” which immediately brightened up my day. Maybe it was the bright colors, or maybe it was the thought of looking forward to summer, either ways it was an instant feel-good for me. it So here I am, sending out some instant feel-good brightness your way!

On that note, singing “Here comes the Sun…” by the Beatles, and hoping it’ll come soon ;), bring on your sugar free recipes!

      I love quick and simple appetizers! The hummus appetizer appeals to me even more because I have been looking to do something similar with it actually! Thanks for bringing these lovely recipes to Sugar Free Sunday! 🙂
