Best Recipes of the Week

“I‘m leaving on a jet plane . . . don’t know when I’ll be back again!” The last two weeks have been such a relaxing and enjoyable tropical vacation in Maui.  Such a beautiful place that we feel so fortunate to be able to visit.  At the same time, I’m ready to get back to my kitchen to cook with all of you again, plus to check on the progress of my gardens, and finally, to see my babies (dogs, cats, and horses) again.  What is the saying:  Vacations are great, but it’s always nice to be back home.  So true!

As I get ready to board my flight, its’ time to share a post on Fresh, Clean and Pure Friday AND Seasonal Saturday since I’ll be traveling for 20 hours, well into late Saturday night . . . Yes, The Carolina’s are quite a long, long trip from the middle of the Pacific Ocean.  I just cannot wait for the resulting jet lag!  HA!

As usual, please include the button and link back to this get-together so that others can join in.  Include the URL address of your post and not your blog in general.  Lastly, please don’t share posts related to giveaways, coupons or sales, or trying to sell stuff.

Thank you for your kind blog etiquette!

I hope that you enjoy and visit the following featured posts that were graciously shared last week:

Amy from “u try it” does it again with this fresh, spring spinach, brie and prosciutto tart.  Now this looks simply irresistible to me!  Lovely!

Gloria from “Canela Kitchen” shared her Lemon Cheesecake with Raspberry Cupcakes.  What a great flavor combo for this time of year.

I just love artichokes and Katherine from “Katherine’s Corner” shared a unique and freshly-made artichoke vinaigrette to drizzle over our spring salads!  Yum!

Tina from “GIving and Sharing” informs us about a fresh and clean way to get our gardens started in her post organic grow kits in biodegradable pots
