Life is filled with events and celebrations, many of which take place in the spring and summer.

We just celebrated Mother’s Day (and fishing opener) this past weekend. Grad parties are starting to get into full swing, Memorial Day is just around the corner, Father’s Day is coming up in June, along with family reunions at the lake, outdoor concerts, and the 4th of July… just to name a few.

But of all of the events and celebrations that happen in life, weddings may be one of the biggest, and most life-changing, of all. So much anticipation and excitement leading up to the wedding day – and the bridal shower is a big part of that.

Everyone initially assumes that these are traditional peanut clusters, and they’re pleasantly surprised, and puzzled, to realize that they’re not.

They usually ask what that secret ingredient is, and then want the recipe.  (For those of you that I still haven’t gotten back to yet, here you go.  :-))
