    Quick question:
    Antipasto skewers: where’d you find skewers with a knot at one end? Cute + practical.

      World Market has them and sometimes they are in the cocktail section of the grocery store. :)

    Wow, your Hawaiian Hot Dogs with Pineapple Mango Salsa looks amazing!!! Love the idea, never would have thought of the combination! But anything with avocado and salsa is okay in my book!

    Made the skewers for a party. Then left them in the fridge as we were rounding up the kids. Sleep deprivation is not my friend!!
