{Link Party} Friday Favorites #105, Features and Looking for Co-Hosts

Happy Friday!
 Thanks to every one who linked up last week (keep those links coming!)
We are trying to combine our features into one post so you'll hear from all the co-hosts and see more features.  We had a few hiccups thanks to Laura's "no reading rule" after Lasik surgery. But, she is recovering well and we are back on track!

 Our Friday Favorites is making some great changes so please read how this benefits you! First, we are looking for 2-3 additional co-hosts. Please email Laura@notatrohpywife.com if you are interested in joining up with Laura, Morgan, Emily and moi.
We are asking for a 3 month commitment and we are very low key!
Next, we will post all of our weekly features on all of the co-hosts' blogs! In the past we each shared our own favorites on our own blogs and with this change our favorites will get more exposure for you!

{Recipe} Mini Peach Crisps

I made these fun little crisps for my All The Light We Cannot See book club.
I wasn't "doing" refined sugar at the time so I searched for a peach dessert that didn't contain any.
I found this Easy Peach Crisp from the Detoxinista.  It was also vegan and paleo (I didn't think those two diets crossed very often.)
 I followed her recipe but made my crisp in silicone cupcake liners so we could have individual servings. It's just more fun, I think!  The filling is a mixture of frozen (or fresh) peaches, maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon.  The topping gets its crunch for walnuts and unsweetened coconut and has a hint of almond extract (I would add a little less next time).
These were not overly sweet and a perfect treat for my fellow book clubbers.  I stored the leftovers in the fridge and they were just as yummy cold! #breakfast

{Entertaining} Book Club for All The Light We Cannot See

Last month it was my turn to host our neighborhood book club.  The book I chose was All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.     I highly recommend this book if you haven't read it.   It's hard to summarize this book quickly but it's about"a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied Paris as both try to survive the devastation of World War II." *
*from Amazon
I did a French theme for book club with gingham, tulips and baguettes.  
Peaches play a big part in the book so I had to include them on the menu and decor. I also made my favorite French salad--Salad Chevre Chaud (mixed greens with toasted baguette and melted goat cheese).
The little girl's father makes her a mini replica of their neighborhood when she goes blind so she can learn where everything is located.  There's also a mysterious stone from the museum where he works and keys also play a big part in the book.
It was one of the first warm days we had that month and I had the windows open to feel the warm breeze. I picked a French traditional station on Pandora to set the mood.
I also made mini peach crisps and..
chocolate hummus with fruit.
Recipes to follow!
Have you read any good books lately?

{Project 365} First 50 Days

We've just passed our first 100 days in my Project 365 Facebook group and it's been going fairly well for me. I have good days and bad days. I don't always take a photo each day and some days I have too many to choose from.

{Day 1-25}
They aren't in order and I missed two days. I also chose to work on editing older photos on some of my days.  Some photos are taken with my Iphone 4.
{Day 26-50}
I try not to be too hard on myself and if I miss a few days, I catch up and keep going.
I'm in a super talented group and I'm always inspired by my fellow Project 365'ers so they motivate to get back at it when I fall off the wagon.

These collages are taking me way longer than I anticipated so I will post my next 50 days later.

Let's keep in touch!
