Ohh! My Favorites!

Yummy Chunklet tagged me in the 7 Link Challenge last week and I was so excited to not only be chosen but to have an excuse to go back into my old files and pick my favorites. I never have time to reminiscence over past posts but this gave me a reason to do just that so I gladly welcomed the challenge.

There are only two rules: 1) publish a link specific to the categories below and 2) nominate up to 5 bloggers to take part in the challenge. Here are my chosen links for the following categories:

1. The most beautiful post: Saffron Seafood Paella

2. The most popular post: Homemade Gnocchi

3. The most controversial post: Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas or Homemade Cinnamon Rolls I didn’t really have a controversial post so I just choose two of my favorites.

4. The most helpful post: Easy as 1-2-3 Cheese Souffle (souffle, it doesn’t have to be hard!)

5. The post that was surprisingly successful: Smore’s Brownie

6. The post that did not get the attention it deserved: Eggplant Napoleon

7. The post I am most proud of: My Homemade Pretzels

I have so many favorite food bloggers that I love to visit so it is hard for me to chose just 5 but I tag the following girls that I am always curious to see what they will come up with next!


  1. Valerie

    Your choices are fantastic! Seafood paella and a souffle are on my to-do list, so I may be using your recipes to get them crossed off my list. Thanks for participating!

    I wouldn’t know where to start on your blog…everything, I mean EVERYTHING that you do makes we wish that I could take out a spoon and serve myself…right from the computer screen!

    P.S. Your onion rings were such a hit with yesterdays’ lunch, my husband got jealous and I’ve had to prepare them for him this morning!

    Greetings! 🙂

    I found you from Yummy Chunklet and I’m glad she awarded you this so I can get a brilliant glimpse of your blog. I’m not at all surprised that your s’mores brownies got a great hit, because it looks awesome and one of my most popular posts was probably the s’mores granola bars I made…seems like people really love their s’mores!

    All those dishes look so inviting! I would eat a bit of everything. I’m glad you say everyone can cook. My daughter (hungrycaramella.blogspot.com) has no clue about cooking, but she sure loves to eat. I will tell her to visit you and maybe learn something. I’m Sicilian but my husband is Japanese so I cook a lot of Asian food. Anyway, I’m following you from Rome. Your blog is splendind!

      Thanks girl. Can you believe the eggplant didn’t get everyone’s attention. I think it was a bad time of the summer or something because it sure was my favorite
