7 Links and More Awards!
Ok, this post is long, long overdue, but Joanna, from one of my favorite blogs, Chic and Gorgeous Treats tagged me for the 7 links challenge, but life just got in the way. Then, another one of my favorite bloggers, Kym from Free Spirit Eater tagged me. So, now I am finally making some time to do this! I had a hard time picking my 7 links. My blog is only a few months old and I am still learning so much about blogging and photography! I feel like I have so much to learn! Being a newer kid on the block, I don’t have too many recipes to pick from, but I am going to give this a go anyway!
1. Most Beautiful Post
Well, I’m going to go with with my most recent post for Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting because it was the first photo of mine that got accepted by foodgawker, LOL! I know nothing about photography and our apartment has AWFUL lighting so taking nice pictures is difficult. But, my husband is a video editor so he is helping me with lighting as much as he can! Bit by bit, we are kind of figuring it out!
This one is easy. Based on my site stats, my post for Nutella Cupcakes is my most popular. People seem to find their way to my page every day for this recipe and I’m so glad they did because these cupcakes were SO good!!
3. Most Controversial Post
To my foodie friends, this isn’t controversial at all, but it was to my husband. When I told him that I was making Blueberry Zucchini Bread, he got a very disgusted look on his face. The thought of putting a vegetable in a sweet bread sounded disgusting to him. I think he expected huge chunks of zucchini. But, after it came out of the oven and I gave him a slice, he said it was actually pretty good!
4. Most Helpful Post
For most helpful, I’m going with my Homemade Manicotti. Making the shells from scratch can be a little tricky, so I tried to give step-by-step instructions on how to make them. Hopefully at least one person will find this helpful!
5. Post That Was Surprisingly Successful
This classic, Pasta Fagioli, has been getting a ton of hits and comments. I guess I didn’t think people would love it as much as they seem to be! But, it is a delicious soup and it is one of my favorite family recipes and I’m glad to see it doing so well!
6. Post That Didn’t Get the Attention It Deserved
Since my blog is new, I think there are quite a few recipes that didn’t get the attention they deserved since I didn’t really try to get my blog out there until more recently. I can’t really pick one! It’s a toss up between, Pasta Aglio e Olio, Banana Maple Breakfast Quinoa, Pulled Pork Sandwiches, and Cheddar Swiss Fondue
7. Post That You’re Most Proud Of
You are probably wondering why a bowl of guacamole is the post that I am most proud of. This was my first post on my blog. I had wanted to start a food blog for over a year and never did it. I finally decided back in May that it was time for me to start this blog as a way for me to share my favorite recipes and to become a better cook by trying new recipes! I’m having so much fun and can’t wait to see what the future brings!
So, there you have it. My 7 links!!
