However, I'm also the type who despises change---but my mom and my husband think I need a new look! What do you think? Tell the truth...you won't hurt my feelings! Do you like it when websites give themselves a makeover every now and then? Does it make it difficult for you to figure out "where you are" if things don't always look the same?
Today I'm featuring a super easy recipe that my kids absolutely love! I first began making this when I was selling Pampered Chef about 10 years ago. I use their Scalloped Bread Tube to bake my bread in but you could use any hors d'oeuvre-sized bread for yours.
1 can refrigerated french bread dough OR small bread slices
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2-3 Tb. dry dill weed
2 cloves garlic
1 cucumber, sliced
(optional)Bake french bread in a metal bread tube according to package directions until lightly browned. Cool and slice bread.
Mix cream cheese, dill, and garlic in a bowl until well blended. Peel (if desired) and slice cucumber (I used Pampered Chef zester/scorer to make lines down the sides). Spread cream cheese mix onto bread and top with cucumber slice. I also sprinkle dill on top. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
Thanks to Peggy at Good Recipes Online for featuring these in her recipe round up!

Jann from Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson gave an update on her basement project. She updated this cute chair and cupboard to make her grandkids an outdoor café. Isn't this adorable?!
