Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party August 17/12

It is that time of the week again for our Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party.... YEAH!  Last week we had so much fun and we had 144 links.  Let's try for a record this week...  I am sure we can do it.  Again this week we have a wonderful giveaway for the Top 3 Voted

Only Available for US Residents
Farm girls glitz and glam has graciously donated lavender scented body scrub for the Top 3 Voted Recipes... Isn't that great.  The only draw back is that it is only available for US residents... But if you are not a US resident and my recipe wins then I will be donating my prize to my host favorites... Although you will have to wait for a week before you know that you won.  So, go ahead and submit your best recipe and see if I pick you.

Congratulations to last weeks Top 3 Voted winners.... they each won a e-cookbook.

Molasses Cookies from Spatulas on Parade

Stay at Home Mom -had 3 winning recipes Salted Caramel Cake, Corn Dogs and Cheddar Bacon Fries

1. roasted parmesan zucchini bites

Once again this week there were many great recipes and I had a hard time to pick my favorite... but this recipe I kept going back to... for one thing it is a crock pot recipe and I love using my crock pot and I am always trying to figure out some what to use a little beef in my recipes.  My husband is not a meat, potato, veggie kind of guy.  He is used to eating rice with a sauce and this came with it all.... So, my favorite is...
Beef and Broccoli by My Biscuits are Burning.  I am in the process of making this recipe as I type out this post... so before night's end I will post my picture to this one and also my posting for the changes I made to this recipe.  By, the way it smells wonderful and I can't wait until I taste it.  Thanks My Biscuits are Burning for submitting this recipe. To find my recipe click on the link under the picture.
