Friend Of The Week – Helen


This week we are traveling to the Pacific Northwest to meet a woman who loves life – loves her family – loves cooking – and loves blogging! I’d like to introduce you to Helen – the accomplished blogger behind The Lazy Gastronome and Pleasures Of The Northwest!

Helens Cats

Helen is quite the renaissance gal! She lives with her husband Dennis and her feline family of four rescue cats, and spends as much of her time with her children and grandchildren as she possibly can! When she’s not hiking, kayaking or hunting wild mushrooms, she can be found passionately photographing her family and the scenic beauty of the Pacific Northwest, creating DIY crafts that spotlight her creative side, or whipping up delicious recipes that are worthy of a feast!

Helen is also the host of several fun parties on her blogs – if you love to cook, bake or craft, be sure to check them out!

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you brighten Helen’s day and treat yourself to the gift of friendship by dropping by her blog, introducing yourselves, and congratulating her for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

    If I were going to an ice cream store and had my choice, my favorite ice cream would be black walnut or rocky road. Love them both, depends on my ood.
    Thanks for hosting, wishing you a great week!

  2. Thank you for continuing to host this great link up. I hope you have a lovely weekend.

    Great post and my favorite ice cream flavor is Cookies and Cream yum! Nothing else really beat those cookies inside and I love when I get bigger cookie chunks.

  4. Thanks so much for hosting each week! Have a great Labor Day week-end!

    Helen, you run two blogs–that is impressive! Keeping up with one keeps me on my toes. Wishing you an incredible week!

  7. Gotta change that picture!! LOL – Thank you so much for the honor of being the friend of the week!! AND for hosting the party every week!

  8. Hello! For my ice cream pick, I’d have to say Rocky Road, because I have braces and can’t eat it right now due to the nuts in it! I’m 37 and have braces….that’s fun. I was happy to come across your blog; I have been blogging for a long time, but had taken a break, and now it seems all my bloggy buddies are out of the blogosphere, and I need to make some new friends! Please come visit me and say hello!! I’m a 37 year old mommy to two boys, ages 12 and 9, we are a retired military family living in Texas, and I miss interacting on my blog so much. Come visit and hang out! 🙂 XOXO – Stace

  9. I like to change up what Icecream flavor I pick, but two of my favorites from the store that was near my university were mango sorbet and green apple sorbet.
