My 7 Links

I like this game.  Thank you to Ryan for tagging me to play.  If you’ve not seen her blog give it a look it’s called Ryan Bakes and you’ll love what you see there.  She’s part Italian and part southern, and it makes for a fabulous combination in her kitchen!

The reason I like this game is that I had to delve back into my archives for appropriate posts.  I’ve blogged for 7 1/2 months and I’d forgotten some of my early posts.  The food blog world has millions of participants, all of us with a reason for writing a blog. This game is just one of the ways we can network with each other and share other blogs with our readers.

How the game works:  There are 7 categories to link to a post you’ve already written, and then you tag 5 blogger friends to take their turn.  There are 2 Rules:  1 Link per category.  2.  Tag 5 other Bloggers

My 7 Links Game – Enjoy!

1. Most Beautiful:  Peaches, Peaches, and More Peaches

I love this photo.  The light is beautiful, the fruit perfect and the landscape green.  Food au naturel and at it’s finest.  I chose this for its simplicity and wholesomeness.

2. Most Popular: Banana Blackberry Bread

I am a little baffled  – but this post gets the most hits on a daily basis.  Don’t get me wrong it is delicious, just am amused at how many times people hit it.  Maybe it’s because blackberry season has recently been upon us.

3. Most Controversial: Cheesecake

I haven’t had any controversial comments posted yet, thankfully,  but I chose this photo as it is the one and only photo I have submitted to FoodGawker, Tastespotting, etc. that has been accepted.  Personally I think the photo is a little cheesy, but it was appropriate for the post I wrote that day.  The controversy lies with me in wondering how it can be the only photo they have accepted.

4. Most Helpful: What A Nice Surprise

This post was only helpful for you, my readers, if you are around bees and are attached to your cell phone.  It was helpful to me however, as a documentary film maker found this photo on my blog and asked permission to use it in his film about the state wildflower of Oklahoma.  Also I was given the Versatile Blogger Award which helped boost my confidence in this big ole’ blogger world.

5. Surprisingly Successful: King Ranch Casserole

I’m not much of a casserole maker but made this for a lunch I catered.  It got favorable reviews.  It does look all cheesy and yummy!

6. Didn’t Get The Attention It Deserved: Italian Creme Cake

Maybe the photo didn’t do the cake justice, or maybe you had to be there to taste it, or maybe it was all the champagne imbibed that evening, but this cake is out of this world delicious and it got very little respect.  No prob… I still love y’all!

7. Most Proud Of: Whoa Nellie Here We Go

I don’t even have a photo to go with this post.  It was my very first post and after I finished I was pretty happy with myself.  As I typed, the words flowed and I truly enjoyed the process.  I probably hadn’t figured out how to add photos yet. Before I began to blog I had no idea how much I would enjoy it.  Check out those I’ve tagged below, they are just a few of the talented bloggers I’ve discovered along the way.

Tag you’re it!

    Great posts! It was fun to look back at some of the ones I hadn’t seen yet! Thanks for tagging me…not sure if I can brave the archives but I’ll give it a try!!

    • Thank you Sarah! Braving the archives is a fun challenge – if I’d name my posts by recipe instead of catchy phrases it surely would have been easier for me! There’s a thought…

    I loved all of your links– so fun to see your choices– and how did I not see that gorgeous Italian Creme Cake? I’m so glad you highlighted it so I can make it soon. It looks awesome! Your pictures are beautiful as always!

    • Ryan, thank you so much. There are so many of your cake recipes I’d like to find time to try. It was interesting to look back at 7 months worth of blogging. I totally enjoyed your selections too – that chocolate cake looks right up my alley!

Make my day - leave me your thoughts!
