I‘d like to first thank each of you for your kind words of support during my week from hell this first week of classes, meetings, deadlines, and more! I kept your thoughts on my mind as I perservered through the demands that had to not only be met, but that had to be met with excellence and focus.
But oh, with a sigh of relief, I can now relax over the weekend and visit your latest blog posts. I don’t know the reasons why each of us ‘blog’, but I can say that I gain so much enjoyment from not just ‘it’ (this blog), trying new recipes, reading about your recipes, trips, and gardens, but also from the friendships in this unique community!
Enough of my jibber-jabber (it comes easily to those of us who teach!), it’s time to have some fun and share some super recipes.
Here are the 10, yes 10 Featured Blogs from last week. . . as this blog get-together continues to grow, I felt the need to keep the percentage of featured blogs more in-line with the number of those posts linked up. So here you go!
My oh my what a beautiful pizza pie! Cathy from “Wives With Knives” brought along this summer-fresh pizza to the party, Fresh Home-made Tomato and Herb Pizza! Mmmmm, yummo! Please visit her blog and follow along at her new web address.
From Annamaria from “It’s In There” is this super-rich Blue Ribbon Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake. I love trying any recipe that has won that beloved, treasured blue ribbon! Welcome Annamaria!
Look what my good friend, Kim from “Stirring The Pot” prepared: Basil Potato Puree! I could pour this bowl of deliciousness down my throat and ask for more on top of that! What a recipe, Kim!
What a wonderful way to serve and enjoy fresh peaches. This recipe, Peach Compote with Cream and Almonds, was shared by Jeanie Rose from “Traditional Foods”. Welcome to the party, Jeanie Rose!
Just take a look at this simply beautiful dish shared by Concetta of “Concetta’s Kitchen”: Concetta’s Chicken Salad. She says that this specialty of hers is ‘cool, creamy, and dreamy’. Works for me, Concetta!
Welcome to Carol from “Easy To Be Gluten-Free” and a big thanks for sharing this cheesy Rice and Veggie Alfredo Pie! Great meatless recipe too!
Danielle from “Hugs and Kisses XOXO” is new to the get-together and shared this luscious Red Velvet Cheesecake. What a scrumptious marriage of flavors! Welcome!
Miranda from “Mangoes and Chutney” shared another superb chicken salad recipe, this time enhancing it with an accent of cranberries: Cranberry Chicken Salad! Fruit added to savory salads are so enjoyable, don’t ya think?
A new, updated version of Gazpacho was linked up by Kate of “A Spoonful of Thyme”. For this, Kate added lovely tiny shrimp and perfectly ripe chunks of avocado. Now THIS is a winning soup recipe!
Emily, from “Recipes To Nourish” brought an eye-candy beverage to refresh with on any late summer day, Watermelon Lemonade. Welcome too, Emily!
