I didn’t see you there.
I’m kidding. I knew you were coming to parrrrrrrttttaaaaaaay.
How was your 4th?? What did you do?? What good foods did you eat?
I stayed home and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Living in Oklahoma when I was younger I was 1000s of miles away from my family. Holidays were not these huge family gatherings so I tend to not really worry about them too much. Plus, when I was younger I worked in retail and pretty much had to work holidays. Now that I freelance and have to share the home with others, I will take every opportunity I can to stay home alone. Husband, his mom, and kiddo went to his mom’s side of the family annual BBQ camp event at a cousin’s house. So, while they did what they usually do, I spent 3 days getting a lot of writing, reading, sorting, brainstorming, creating, and resting. It amazes me how much more productive I am when I don’t have to worry about anyone else but me and there is no real schedule. I don’t have to worry about distractions!
So, last week I shared my fave from the party as the Clean Eating Pecan Pie. Did you see it? I highly suggest you check it out. Truth is, I have been obsessing about this pie. I am going to explode if I don’t make it soon!
I am sure this week is going to bring me a new obsession. So many wonderful shares!
Also, I can’t stress enough, if there are ANY of you fabulous foodies who wish to co-host with us – please let us know. More co-host = more pageviews and social sharing for us all!
NOTE: Something else I want to touch base on here. Please, please make sure when you link that you 1) have linked back to us in some way, whether its a direct link in your post, our button on our sidebar or our button on a link party page hosted on your website. We have a lot of folks linking and not giving us credit back. 2) please do not link and run. A lot of work goes into recipe creation. Please, if you want people to visit you then you really should pay it forward and practice the power of three. Take time to visit at least 3 recipes and leave a comment. Bonus if you social share. Cheryl and I visit each and every one of the posts in our link. We comment on ALL and we social share. That is VERY time consuming. So PLEASE, be kind and pay forward your respects to fellow foodies. This is supposed to be fun, so don’t make me slap your hands 😉

This week’s Features:
Ham and Cheese Pinwheels from Three Generations Living Out Loud
YUMS PERSONAL PICKS:
Ok folks, I could not decide. So, I have a tie this week. When you see what I am talking about, you’ll get it. Trust me, you will want to lick your computer screen just like I did when I saw these eatables.
If anyone would like to create these, I’ll be more than happy to invite myself over for the meal 😉
First we have the simply gorgeous Blackberry White Chocolate Tiered Cheesecake. I admit, Lisa first had me at cheesecake but when I clicked and looked at more photos I knew I had just died. I mean..look at it folks. It’s so beautiful (and just betting me to bite into it!)
Now, just look at these pancakes! I can’t stand it anymore!! We don’t eat a lot of pancakes anymore because of my PCOS and insulin issues, but ohmylord I have to try these. I am pretty sure kiddo would approve. Mr. Yum isn’t much of a pancake or sweets fan thought. More for us.
Seeeeeee?? Can you blame me for having a tie?
CONGRATULATIONS to you ALL!

Are those flowers on the cheesecake edible? It would be neat if they were. We are making some favorite spaghetti tonight for dinner.
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
We had a very quiet 4th. It rained here from that hurricane, so pretty much everything was either canceled or postponed. We had a quiet cookout at my parents house, but never made it to the fireworks like I wanted.
Aww thats a bummer Robin 🙁
Charity L. says

Thanks for the opportunity. I signed up #44, if anyone wants to visit! I visited and commented on Strawberry Pie, Cheesy Broccoli Casserole, Chocolate Cake, and Baked Avocado. Not sure if my comment made it on one of these. I was having issues. I can tell you that these are recommended posts too!
So many great food recipes in the link up! I am adding mine too and pinning a few of these here.
I love recipe link ups! This is a great way to find my dinner menu for the week 🙂 So many yummy choices.

We had a quiet 4th too. Just celebrated with the immediate family. That cheesecake is almost too pretty to eat!
That cheesecake is so pretty. I’d be too upset that I was ruining the art to eat it
I am not sure I could eat it. I would spend hours taking photos before I finally decided that my drooling was ruining it anyway.
Amanda H. says

Oh I meant to check out that clean eating pecan pie – I’m so curious! And that Blackberry White Chocolate Tiered Cheesecake.looks almost too pretty to eat!
I agree with both statements! I made a list of things to buy for the pecan pie, but still have not made it.

The cheesecake looks amazing. I never would’ve thought to put bacon in chocolate chip cookies.
