Welcome to Happiness is Homemade! We have a new co-hostess on the team, Allyson from Southern Sunflowers! She will continue choosing our features for the month of May. Before we get to this week’s features, let’s check out what’s been going on here on the blog over the past few days. Be sure to head over and link up on Crafty Creators before you go!
Summer break is here for our family, and I’m sure it’s coming for yours too. This week I made an end of the year gift of a beach towel and a color changing tumbler and gave it to my son’s teachers. You can get the tutorial for that gift as well as three different gift tags to customize your own gift with. You can even give these as summer starter gifts for kiddos as well!
I was given the opportunity to review Printique’s canvas wall art pieces in exchange for a review of the product. Check out my review for all you need to know before ordering prints, canvases, or lovely photo books.
I’ve got some more great home decor posts, DIY Father’s Day gifts and end of the year teacher’s gift ideas with free printables (on Tuesday!) upcoming, so make sure you don’t miss them by following me on social media and email.

This Week’s Features
Welcome to Happiness is Homemade #429!
Are you all looking forward to summer cookouts and barbeques? Your May co-host, Allyson from Southern Sunflowers, has chosen 5 recipes that will be perfect to make and serve at your upcoming outdoor gatherings. Let’s get to the features!
THIS WEEK’S FEATURES!
Lois, from Walking on Sunshine Recipes, shares an Easy Classic Deviled Eggs recipe. I think most people think deviled eggs are a given for all Sunday lunches, holiday dinners, and cookouts. Get egg-cited and head over to her blog to see what ingredients make this a classic!
Rebecca, from Strength and Sunshine, shares a great option for any vegans at your summer gathering. Vegan BLT Pasta Salad is gluten-free and allergy-free. Her pasta has the expected flavors of your favorite BLT sandwich. Be sure to visit her blog to get the yummy recipe.
That Guy Who Grills, shows us how to make Grilled Teriyaki Pork Kabobs. They look mouth watering delicious. Head over to the blog for the recipe and then ignite those grills!
Another classic staple for cookouts, from NancyC, is Creamy Dill Potato Salad. She uses red potatoes instead of regular potatoes and I like the idea of that twist in her recipe. Layer your bowl with lettuce leaves for a nice presentation.
Arlene, from Flour on My Face, has the perfect solution to keep us cool and hydrated in the summer heat. Her Frozen Fruit Punch Cups are easy to make and are filled with a variety of fruit. Visit her blog to see how to make her frozen treats!
