Encouraging Hearts and Home: Eating Our Way Through the 50 States

When my boys were younger and we began homeschooling we checked out a few recipe books from our library about eating our way through the 50 states... I don't think we ever quite made it all the way through any of them since my boys were like most little kids and pretty picky about what they ate.  But when I saw so many different and yummy recipes linked up with us last week that represented different parts of the United States I just knew I HAD to feature them! 

And Now, It's Time for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!  

 

Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!

    1. I thought that sounded delicious too; and I'm not usually a maple syrup fan but maple cream?? That sounds pretty good.
