Cheesy Sausage Crescent Ring

This post is sponsored by VELVEETA® . All opinions are my own.

During spring and summer, we tend to get together with friends for weekend brunch a lot. Heading outside during the nice morning weather for a meal together is one of our favorite ways to reconnect and just have some relaxation time in the midst of the hustle and bustle of shuttling kids to activities and taking ourselves back and forth to work. I like to make my recipes for brunch easy so that I don’t spend a ton of time in the kitchen. A recent favorite, a cheesy sausage crescent ring, has only a few ingredients and is so easy to make.

Teacher Gift: DIY Soy Candle

PLEASE NEVER LEAVE A BURNING CANDLE UNATTENDED

Hello! Jennifer from Satsuma Designs here and very excited to be back at Just Us Four blog – thank you Shannah! At Satsuma Designs, I create Seattle-made baby products and content that help make caring for kids as easy as child’s play. At my blog, you’ll find crafts, organizing tips, recipes, holiday and everyday treats to delight you and your kiddos. Come by for a visit!

Did you celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day at school this year? We did and there just aren’t enough ways to thank our teachers for all they do for our kiddos and our families. We try to find little ways to say thanks with little bouquets stealthily picked on the walk to school or a coffee card once in a while. So as the year winds to a close, I wanted to present a homemade gift that sends a fun message. Here’s my Teacher Appreciation Gift of a DIY Soy Candle. I’ve added a fun little message related to light to really drive it home!

Roasted Tomato Goat Cheese Pesto Pizza

I love goat cheese. You may remember a little strawberry goat cheese creation I shared recently and I have to tell you that appears on our table weekly now that strawberries are in abundance at the farmer’s market. Know what else goes amazing with goat cheese? Roasted tomatoes…especially when you use it to create a roasted tomato goat cheese pesto pizza.

Paleo Chicken Salad

Guess what day it is?! It is Paleo Monday. I am so excited to share with you one of my absolute favorite new recipes this week. I’ve been searching for a way to replace the chicken salad that I loved for lunch each and every day before going Paleo {er-ish}. Well, I think I finally done it. This paleo chicken salad is to die for and is so perfect for Spring and Summer lunches.

Spicy Italian Macaroni and Cheese

I am excited to partner with DairyPure milk to bring you this new recipe. While this post was sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

We love mac & cheese in our house. I don’t get to make it from scratch as often as I like but I try to make a big batch and then freeze it for later use at least once per month. Since we eat it a lot, I like to try and change it up from time to time and go beyond a basic macaroni and cheese. Recently, I wanted to make some that was geared a little more to the adults in our house and created spicy Italian macaroni and cheese.

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week so far. My week started out with some extra Mother’s Day activities at school so that was so fun. I am looking forward to a {hopefully} quiet weekend so I can get caught up on a few things around the house.

Speaking of getting caught up, here are a few things you’ve missed this week if you haven’t been by:
