Wraps are one of my favorite sandwiches. So when Terry of Cottage Grove, MN submitted this Versatile Chicken Wrap recipe to the Quick Summer Meals Contest I was doing the happy dance. Luckily for me (and you) this is a written blog and not a video blog. I do my happy dance to embarrass my kids. Does that tell you anything about what it looks like?
The thing I love about wraps is the variety of meats, cheeses and vegetables you can put inside. Everyone can have pretty much a wrap that they will love and eat. Plus, tortilla wraps themselves come in a variety of flavors. I mostly like the plain ole’ white or whole wheat ones best so that the flavor of the tortillia doesn’t overpower the yumminess inside.

Thank you Shannon from Prairie du Chien, WI for this Quick Summer Meal Recipe. I had never made a beef roast this way before and you can bet I will make it this way again. Italian flavors are a favorite in our house and putting roast beef on garlic bread is a genius move. Bravo for thinking of it Shannon!!!

Desserts for the Deserving.
I like to bake and I like to share my goods with others. It’s kind of a therapy for me. Not so much the baking part but the look on the recipients face when they eat something I’ve made or a quick thank you email or text about how much it was appreciated. I don’t do it for the pats on the back. I do it because I know little things like a plate of cookies or bars can turn a bad day into a good day. It can be dessert for dinner or breakfast the next day. It can be a reminder that someone was thinking of you. So when I saw this group on Facebook, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.
Desserts for the Deserving was established in 2011 with the sole purpose of bringing people joy. It is a nonprofit movement where bloggers, bakers, crafters, and all forms of creative people offer up time and resources to bring strangers joy.
The thing is – you don’t have to be a part of this group or any group to give someone joy. You can do it on your own. Do you know someone
