A Special Occasion Meal

A special occasion meal including recipes for roast beef and strawberry chocolate cake.

My recent project for my husband was inspired by this bib!
As I was feeding my studly little man - who was wearing this bib - the other day, I thought, "My husband's a stud muffin, too!"

He appreciated it and it was SUPER easy to do. All I did was create a little logo in photoshop, printed it out, cut, and taped a skewer to the back. Stick it...
