Patriotic Trifle

As you can see, I’m on a bit of a craft hiatus. However, I’ve been trying lots of new recipes and I believe my little family is enjoying it quite a bit! Yesterday, as you know, it was Independence Day.  Hope you knew that… And if not, then What the heck’s up with that?! Anyways, I’m a bit of a trifle junkie. First step is to admit it, right? So there it is. Strung out, tweaking, straight up junkie for the trifles, yo. Ok, so maybe that “street” talk is a bit taboo for my conservative readers, but I’ve been watching AMC’s Breaking Bad. Awesome series btw! They throw around the very outdated word “yo” a lot and it tickles me really.
