My Take on Seven Links

I was tagged by Elisabeth @ Food and Thrift Finds recently for the 7 links game. I finally have time to write the post. thank you Elisabeth for the nudge to go back and review my posts, like old friends you haven't seen in awhile.

 My Most Beautiful Post was the dessert table with six luscious mini desserts for Cherise's shower.

My Most Popular post was the Almond Joy cupcakes that I made for my belated Blogiversary and my 10th wedding anniversary.

My Most Controversial Post, no controversary here so here are my Nutella Fudge Brownies

The Most Helpful post was the post for the day of the Online Bake Sale to benefit the American Cancer Society and the Relay for Life.  Our wonderful blogging community raised $700.  Thank you again for all of your support.

My Most Successful post in terms of the recipe was the Cinnamon Walnut Loaf. I made that bread for a healthy snack when I went shopping with my future Daughter-in-Law and her Mom for "The Dress.".  Cherise didn't find "The Dress" on that trip, but the bread was wonderful, and that was my first baking experience baking with Greek Yogurt.
The post that didn't get the Most Attention was Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas with Ancho Chile Sauce, that my husband makes. They are so good with all of that cheesy chicken in that wonderful spicy ancho chile sauce The picture is BNC, Before New Camera, and I was fairly new to the blogging world. I think that the next time that he makes them, I'll take another pic, that will hopefully be better.

The last of the Seven Links, but not least, is the post that I am Most Proud of which is the King Cake that I made for Mardi Gras. I finally conquered my fear of yeast.  I haven't made anything with yeast since, but I should. I guess that I really don't want all those tempting goodies around the house to expand my waistline.

Well, that is my take on the 7 links and now I am passing on the 7 Links challenge to my blogger friends:
Gina @SP Cookie Queen
Jill @Dulce Dough
Christine  @Christine's Pantry
Brandie @The Country Cook
Kim @Liv Life
Kim @The Farmer's Wife

I entered the giveaway that Monet Anecdotes and Apple Cores had a couple of weeks ago for a  a selection of fresh Bagels and other goodies from  Los Bagels  in Eureka, California  and I won.  shortly after Monet notified me that I was the winner a huge box arrives at my doorstep.           
Inside was the most assortment of bagels and other goodies, 1 doz bagels, assorted varieties, 2 types of Rugelach, Apricot and Chocolate  Chip,1 loaf of Challah bread, Mustard sauce, and Slug Slime. Slug slime is a concoction of dried onions, garlic, sesame seeds and poppy seeds to spread on top of your bagels and cream cheese. Yum!
Thank you Monet @Anecdotes and Apple Cores for this wonderful giveaway! Now I will have to have a Bagel party.
