So here’s how you link-up:

  • Add your post link with a nice title.

  • Add the photo of the post you wish to showcase.

  • Grab the button (bottom of blog), post it either in your post or somewhere on your blog.

  • No posts to try and sell stuff, no posts for giveaways or promoting a simple product/brand, or with simple coupons and company sales/specials (it isn’t fun to delete these, but I do this every weekend to keep the clutter out and keep the link-up focused)

Please help spread the work about this get-together by Tweeting or Stumbling this post (with your link added); I really appreciate your help everyone!

Your comments make me smile and I promise to get right back to you both here and on your blog! I may be slow at it because I get easily distracted by something brewing in the kitchen, hummingbirds in my gardens, and student papers to grade! BUT I DO VISIT YOUR BLOG and comment back!

  6. new follower :) thanks so much for hosting!

    I do product testing…but I’m always looking for ways to get creative with dinner… I have a picky eater on my hands! :)

  7. Since you posted on fresh seasonal things I had to go back a few posts for my chocolate chip pumpkin bread. Now I did use pumpkin from a can because I only got ONE sugar pumpkin this year from my CSA and I am saving it for my Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. But if you can get your hands on a sugar pumpkin and don’t mind doing a tad more work by roasting it, it tastes sooooo good and fresh and it makes you feel better knowing that you used that instead of a can.

  8. Thank you for hosting! I’ve linked some photos of our first frost this week!
