Bee Hive Butter

My friend who threw my baby shower made this adorable bee hive butter for the party. I have been making it ever sice. It is perfect for a Spring or Summer party! I made fresh biscuits and sliced ham and served it with this butter. It is SO yummy!

Makes 3 cups
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1/2 cup spicy brown mustard
1 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
1 pecan half
Garnishes: fresh rosemary, edible flower petals
Stir together butter, mustard and pecans (minus the pecan half)
Form butter mixture into a beehive shape. Smooth mound with a spatula or rounded knife. Form grooves around mound with tines of a fork. Insert pecan half near the base for a door; chill 2 hours or up to 2 days.

Fluffy Monster Pops!

ooooo... I found the cutest idea at Conversation with a Cupcake. I, of course, couldn't create a pink fluffy pop. I am after all the mother of two boys. So, I had to change the idea and turn them into "Fluffy Monster Pops". My guys were happy to find them on the table when they came home from school today. This is an easy and great after school treat! If you want to see how they're made, go to the link above and see what it is like to have a converstation with a cupcake! Her site is adorable!
