Today I am pleased to introduce Wendy, from Around My Family Table. Wendy married her high school sweetie over 13 yrs ago and she is now a SAHM. She has a 6 year old daughter who has some special needs and a rambunctious 2 year old son. Wendy has been cooking for as long as she can remember. Her mom taught her how to cook when she was younger and when she finally left home, she was able to prepare meals instead of boxed dinners or take out. That's probably what won her hubby’s heart. Wendy cooks mostly from scratch (kudos to her for that!) She grinds my own grains for breads, raises chickens for fresh eggs, and has a bunch of fruit trees. She always tries her best to feed her family the healthiest foods possible!
Caprese Salad on a Stick
fresh basil leaves
marinated mozzarella balls
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tb sugar
Feed the tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella onto a skewer in a pattern, so that they look uniform and pretty. Store in fridge until ready to use. Before serving, combine the balsamic vinegar and sugar in a small sauce pan. Bring to a gentle boil and allow to reduce at least by half (maybe 10-15 minutes). Stir frequently. Drizzle over the top of the skewers. Enjoy!

These are a HUGE hit around my house! Not so much for my picky little one who refuses to eat cheese (what child doesn't like cheese?...oh yeah, that's right, my child)...but my hubby and I love them! YUM!
