I've made a lot of blogging friends through the past year and a half and I would like to introduce some of them to you. I was honored that Nici, from Posed Perfection, said "Yes" and is my guest blogger today. I've been following Nici about a year now and I love her delicious recipes and beautiful crafts. She is also the sweetest lady and I love the encouraging words she shares each week on "Food for the Soul".
Here's Nici to tell you a little about herself and to share some of her favorite recipes from Posed Perfection.
Hi there, friends of My Sweet Mission! I was so excited when Heather asked me to share with you, her sweet readers. I think my first encounter with My Sweet Mission was when Heather linked up her Coconut Cream Pie to my weekly blog hop. After reading more about her love for baking and missions and seeing all the wonderful recipes she puts up on her blog, I was hooked. I am thrilled to be guest posting here today.
Posed Perfection. I've been married to Mr. Perfect for Me for 15 years and I am a homeschooling mom to two great kids. I started blogging about 1 1/2 years ago as a way to get back to my creative roots, both in the kitchen and at the craft table. I love finding ways to adapt recipes to use the ingredients I have on hand or doing craft projects with supplies I already have in my stash, putting those creative juices to work whenever I can. At Posed Perfection, I share simple, delicious recipes, easy-to-duplicate craft projects and whatever is on my heart for the day. I hope you'll stop by for a visit real soon!
Here's a sampling of some of the types of recipes you'll find when you visit me:

If chewy oats and chocolate are your thing, then you're gonna love these No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars! You can whip them up quickly, because there's no baking, and they're super delicious too. I am so glad I found this recipe and have made them many times in the past few months. These bars are also the reason for my (accidental, but so glad it turned out that way) No Bake Cherry Almond Granola. If you crave granola, you'll definitely want to check out that tasty recipe too.

Recently John made this amazingly delicious Cheese Ravioli Lasagna for our kids, Andy & Brittney, who are vegetarians. It's made with simple ingredients, then layered like lasagna and baked until bubbly and golden brown. It was easy to make and we all enjoyed it so much, that I asked John to make it again over the weekend, so I could share it with you.
Layers of cheese ravioli in a savory sauce and two different cheeses, all melted together into one incredible dish!

Today I'm sharing my Oven-Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan. It's one of the easiest side dishes and goes well with all kinds of savory recipes. Roasting asparagus mellows out the flavor and makes it tender, while at the same time gives the tips a little crispy texture. Asparagus is really healthy for you too, and at the end of this post there are some interesting facts about the amazing health benefits of asparagus. John & I absolutely love it and enjoy it as a side dish almost once a week.

Red Velvet Sundae Cupcakes, yum! What's not to love about that? I created these moist and creamy, delectable gems for a dinner party recently and everyone loved them. They're easy to make, because you use a red velvet cake mix and they're lower in calories and fat, because I used my lower calorie cake tip, instead of vegetable oil in the cake mix. So, here we go...let's make these deliciously pretty cupcakes.

If you're looking for a healthier snack (aren't we all?) that's chewy and delicious, then you'll love my No Bake Cherry Almond Granola. It's really good and it whips up fast because you don't need to bake it! To be honest with you, I created this recipe by accident. I decided to make some no bake chocolate oat bars, but wanted to leave out the chocolate middle and add some dried fruit and nuts, to make the bars healthier. Well, instead of it turning out like granola bars it made this amazing buttery, chewy granola. Whoohoo! I love it when I accidentally create a new yummy recipe and now we have an easy and healthier snack too.
Wholesome rolled oats, dried cherries & crunchy almond slivers. A perfect blend of ingredients for a tasty and healthier snack.

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day a little earlier. I'm excited because I'm sharing my first beverage recipe with you today! It's super easy, really delicious and not too sweet. I'll show you how to make individual glasses and give you the recipe for a large punch bowl for parties too. My Mom created this Cran-Raspberry Sherbet Punch recipe over 20 years ago, for our family's Christmas Eve, and we all love it! We usually go through two large punch bowls of it, because it's so good. This punch is also perfect for Valentine's Day because it's a pretty pink punch.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cups. Any one of these ingredients can make your mouth water, put them all together and your mouth will sing for joy! I make these yummy dessert cups at Baxter's and thought I would share the recipe and steps with you today. I love chocolate and peanut butter recipes and today I'm using my Decadent Peanut Butter Bars and turning them into these amazing dessert cups. I make this recipe in dessert cups for a pretty presentation. Oh and I'm going to show you the huge Hobart mixer I use when I bake at our church's kitchen. I can make quadruple (4) batches of cookie dough or double (2) batches of muffins and bar recipes at a time, it's pretty cool!
