Mangia Mondays:: June Features

Welcome to another edition of Mangia Mondays my peeps!

First of all - have you seen what my MM co-host, Kristin of Delightfully Dowling, cooked up with her husband?????  It's simply scrumptious!  I'll give you a hint at the ingredients:
sugar and spice and everything nice!

I'm over the moon delighted about that latest creation of Kristin's……hop on over to check it out!!

Time for June features!  Man, we've got some culinary talent amongst you chefs out there!  I'm always on the hunt for tried and true recipes for real life and you guys do NOT disappoint!

How about this quick and easy dinner for a busy day?
Chicken Tortilla Bake from Melissa's Cuisine:

Not Your Ordinary Recipes shared this Ballpark Salad that features turkey sausage.  I love interesting salads -- doesn't this look YUM?

Grilled Sweet Potatoes?  Yes please!  Thank you to Allison of Feeding My Temple for sharing this idea….Mark & I are on a huge sweet potato kick right now and I'm definitely going to try them this way!

This Sweet Shrimp Stir Fry With Rice from Healthy Mommy Healthy Baby sounds light and delicious for some al fresco dining on the deck this summer!

Elizabeth of The Mustard Ceiling linked up this Tomato and Goat Cheese Quiche that I would happily devour for breakfast, lunch or dinner!  Elizabeth also made this recipe using feta, which I'd love to try too.

This Couscous Summer Salad with apples and craisins, from Couponing and Cooking,  is a must-make for me this week!

How about some sweets for your sweeties?

Cooking Up Good Times shared these Raspberry Cheesecake Dessert Cups that are oh-so-pretty, and look exquisito, no???

This Carmelized Banana Icebox Cake hails from the blog Simple Living With Diane Balch.  Have mercy!

Now that blueberries are in season I can't wait to try Shopgirl's Blueberry Yogurt Cake!!

There are so many other wonderful recipes linked up week after week.  Thanks to everyone who participates in Mangia Mondays.  It's truly so inspirational to read your recipes and I have tried many delicious foods as a result of this blog hop.  I hope you have found a few new things to try too!

A reminder on linking up to the Mangia Mondays blog hop:
The only requirement of this blog hop is that you link back to either Kristin at Delightfully Dowling or to Shine Your Light in your blog post (not a link on another page of your blog).
You can post a Mangia Mondays button (see that "Buttons" link under my header? You'll find the html code there) or just provide a link to the party on either blog if you'd prefer.
Thank you for remembering this blog etiquette when linking up your fabulous recipes!!!

Alright, link on up, chefs extraordinaire,
and have a great week, all!!
