Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party

                                                          Foodie Friends Friday

YES, you heard right, we are going to have another linky party.  Last week we had great  success and hope to even have a better time this week.  I know that I did get alot more traffic to my blog from this, so here is hoping that it continues...
Last week the top three links that had the most clicks were
#1 Lois from Walking on Sunshine with her recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Cookies.  Peanut butter and cookies, who wouldn't like them... Lois is a wonderful addition to this group and an inspiration to us all.
Don't they look so delicious.
#2 Dawn's divine delight came in second and she says on her blog that she loves to bake and that there is always time to bake.  I think I need to spend more time on her blog as if her link for Key limed filled lemon cupcakes is anything to go by she looks like a wonderful baker.  Thanks for sharing Dawn and I hope you join us again with one of your masterpieces.
They look so yummy! picture from

# 3 was a tie between Cindy from Cindy recipes and writings with her link for dutch potato salad and Angie from A'lil Country Sugar with her link for mini s'more cookies.  Both of these girls belong to our group and have been alot of help to me.

 I also want to mention a new member of our group.  I have been following her for awhile now and she has some great recipes.............. Skye at Virtual Essence.  I am hoping that it was my influence that gave her the courage to join our group.   Here is the link to the recipe she linked with the linky party last week: pomegranate feta salad.  Please go over to her blog and check it out... It is fantastic.

  1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I love reading your blog. We have friends who are missionaries in Liberia and you give me a glimpse into their lives.

    1. Dawn, I am glad you enjoy my blog... I am planning on writing more about my time in Togo and Ghana.. I just wish that I could spend more time there, maybe one day we will be able to live there for awhile. Your blog is wonderful too but I think I will gain weight if I spend too much time over there.

  2. Stopping by to visit and say what a lovely place you have here! I have perused several of your posts and enjoyed each one. Great recipes too :)

    Kindly, Lorraine

    1. Thanks for stopping by...and thanks for the comment. I hope that will come again. <3 Marlys


Please stop for a moment and leave a comment to let me know you have been here. I love reading all your comments.

I am sorry but I cannot accept Anonymous comments anymore as I am getting too many spam. I hope that you will comment with an ID user. Thanks for understanding.

I will not be accepting comments that have links on them. I will not delete them but because of google's stance on links I do not want to have any problems with my blog. Thank you for your understanding.
