Seven Links Challenge

Over the past couple weeks I've been tagged by Jeff's Plate, What's Cookin' Italian Style, and The Chef Doc to participate in the Seven Links Challenge. I figured it was about time I comply and take part is this fun experience :) First, the nominated bloggers must pick out seven posts based on the seven categories and then share the links. Then they pick 5 more bloggers to tag! So here goes....

1. Most Beautiful Post: Fresh Curry Fettuccine with Pureed Carrot Sauce, Asparagus, Peas, and Wild Mushrooms... this post not only contained my favorite photos (which I later used on a canvas print), but it was one of the most unique and flavorful dishes I have made. I love how healthy it is over all, and how the flavors compliment each other so well.

2. Most Popular Post: Homemade Soft Pretzels with Whole Grain Mustard... I'm honestly shocked by the overwhelming response of this post. It has been viewed significantly more than any other post on my blog. I will thank StumbleUpon for that :) These pretzels are so easy to make and so tasty! And the homemade mustard doesn't hurt either.

3. Most Controversial Post: Pysch's Fries Quatro Queso Dos Fritos... it may not be super controversial, but technically the cheese is not "injected" into the potatoes as the description on the show states. We did a great job making these fun fried treats, but it may not completely follow Lyin' Ryan's method.

4. Most Helpful Post: An Ode to Meat: Welcome Grilling Season!... There may not be an actual recipe in this post, but I shared a really nice discussion of meat from quality to cuts. It's pretty basic, but a good start to anyone wanting to learn more about meat selection.

5. Post That Was Surprisingly Successful: Dr. Lemon Puff, or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love Pâte à Choux... This was the first time I successfully made Pâte à Choux. It was a pretty big deal, and I loved filling them with lemon curd. Such a great idea :)

6. Post That Did Not Get the Attention it Deserved: Cranberry-Cinnamon Goat Cheese... I'm  just waiting for cranberry season so I can make this again. Weekly. It was so good, but the fact that it was posted in the midst of Christmas and New Year's meant it was overlooked by a lot of people. I hope this will give more people a chance to check it out!

7. Post You Are Most Proud Of: Tea Week: Scones (Tipsy Cherry Scones)... Not only is this one of my favorite recipes I've developed, but it was my first (and so far only) cooking video! I had so much fun putting it together. It was a super proud moment for me :)

Now to select five bloggers to tag!! I hope you'll all participate, it's a nice trip down memory lane :)
