Have you ever crashed a party?
I just did. I'm guilty as Nixon, but I couldn't help myself. When I learned that one of my beloved #TwitterSisters, Nelly (@nella22) was being thrown a virtual wedding shower, I just HAD to invite myself. There's no way that I want to miss out on celebrating her happiness and big day!
Nelly announced her engagement to Brian "M" Murray late one November evening, and the Twitterverse was instantly filled with squeeees of glee from those of us who know and love her. Nelly has a heart of gold and a priceless smile, enhanced all the more when anyone makes mention of M. What can be said about the love between Nelly and Brian is this: the strength of their love shines brightly enough to light up a star-less sky! I truly could not be any happier for you, Nelly. I love and admire you so much!
The virtual wedding shower was organized by Lite Bite. A few other creative food bloggers teamed up with her to conceptualize the perfect online party and create the beautiful logo. Liz (@Mango_Queen) penned a beautiful piece for the bride-to-be and her beloved.

Cook over slow simmer for the rest of your life. Dot daily with a Sense of Humor.
Leave out the nagging, sarcasm, skepticism, doubts and stubbornness.
Serving Suggestions: Best prepared daily. Serve with flourish because Married Life is a FEAST. Live it with flavor, spice it with unconditional love, enjoy its richness.
Recipe Notes: Some ingredients won't always be fresh or available. Or the heat may flare up and the anger spills over. Simmer down and douse the flames with all the LOVE you can throw in.
Enjoy the feast of marriage, love and life!
WHAT I'M BRINGING TO THE PARTY
One of the reasons that Nelly and I get along so well is that we share a passion for many of the same foods. Our chins become covered in drool at the mention of foods like bananas, bacon, avocados, chocolate, and let's not forget the food of the gods…Nutella!
I wanted to create a dessert that would be a great combination of many Nelly's favorite foods, and baking them into an adorable miniature form makes them a perfect match for the equally adorable Nelly!
Congratulations, my friend. My words of advice to you for a lifelong marriage are: Love hard, forgive often, don't go to bed angry, and whatever you do…NEVER EVER COOK BACON IN THE NUDE!
