Seven Links

There is a game going around the Blogging world called Seven Links.  I have been reading this on other blogs, and it seems like a fun idea! Basically there are 7 questions, that you answer using previous posts of yours.   My Home Diary In Turkey tagged me, so I am it!  Here are my Seven Links!

1.  Most Beautiful Post
           Margarita Cupcakes - I am not the best photographer.  I rarely get a picture accepted to Tastespotting or Foodgawker, but I am working on it.  I need to figure out lighting, that much I know for sure.  But this picture I am proud of. 


2.  Most Popular Post
        Homemade Goldfish Crackers - I knew this would be a hit when I was making them, but I didn't know just how much of a hit they would be!



3.  Most Controversial Post
               Barbeque Ribs - Controversial?  Really?  I write about food that I make, what is controversial about that.  But I will say the ribs, because everyone has a say on how you are supposed to cook ribs.  I am guessing many would frown on my 2 hours in the oven, then 5 minutes on the grill.  But they are darn tender and tasty!


4. The Most Helpful Post
               Reader Request:  Kids Lunch Ideas - A reader asked me to write a post dedicated to helping her feed her kids over summer break.  It was some work for me to come up with ideas, because I struggle with this as well.  But I think I had some darn good ones in this post. 


5.  Post that was surprisingly successful
             Strawberry Milkshakes - This was the first in my series of Strawberry recipes.  I thought it was one of the worst as well.  I didn't like the picture and I didn't think it was an original recipe.  This is the first of my posts to make it to the Foodbuzz Top 9!


6.  Post that did not get the attention it deserved
            Homemade Milky Ways - I thought making these at home was darn impressive.  They were relatively easy, and were pretty darn close to the original.


7.  Post you are most proud of
              Chocolate Peanut Butter Macarons - These were my first attempt at Macarons.  I had never even heard of them before I started blogging.  I am always up for a challenge, and these definitely were.  But this was my first attempt, and they were good! 


There are 2 rules.  1 link per category.  And to tag 5 other bloggers!

Tag you're it!
1.  Erin at The Spiffy Cookie
2.  Carolyn at All Day I Dream About Food
3.  Steph at Steph's Bite by Bite
4.  Cassie at Bake Your Day
5.  Lizzy at That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Great round up of the 7! I'm not surprised the goldfish was your most popular. They are so cute and look so good!!

Foodgawker and Tastespotting HATE ME. I've never ever ever had a photo accepted with them :(

I'm with you on the lighting, that is the one thing I really need to figure out how to improve!

Loved reading this, love learning morea bout you!

What a cute idea. :) I'm with you - lighting is the toughest part of this whole photography thing. I'm dreading winter!

Love your links! I was a big fan of the goldfish. And I am super impressed with the milkways too.

It was great reading about your posts, and how they ranked. It's amazing how you think you've got a rockin post and it turns out to be a dud, and then the one you don't think is that good turns out to be a super hit. I enjoy all of your posts!

This link game I like. :) Also your thought about photography on the margarita cupcakes make me smile, "I need to figure out lighting, that much I know for sure." The very idea of photography is capturing light. :) I've always like all of you pictures though, who needs the FG and TS galleries anyway (yeah, me too. but wouldn't it be nice if we didn't?)
