    This past weekend, I hosted a baby shower with a few gals for my best friend. It was amazing and so much fun! I made all the decorations but the other gals made the snacks and HOLY COW have you ever had Fruit Pizza? It is delicious and really, super easy as well as interactive! We got so many compliments that I have to share the “recipe” with you. I know, I know, I know. I don’t write a recipe column but really, you don’t…
