Spring is here. The weather is becoming nicer and it's time to plan for party season - End of year school parties, graduation parties, bridal showers, recitals and more. My April, May, and June months are filled with activities. If your friends are like mine, you may be expected to prepare something. Avoid "Store Bought"! Wow your friends with these special easy to fix treats.
