Blog Posts of the Week II

For some reason, last week's post had my Etsy Mini in between every paragraph. That post should now be fixed. I seem to have been in food/recipe mode this week; I have more recipe blog posts than crafting posts.

Pasta Salad with Lemon and Peas

At some point within the past few years I discovered that although I do not care much for macaroni salad, I love pasta salads. As a result, I'm always looking for new pasta salad ideas. I can't wait to try this one from An Herbal Bedfellow!

Tropical Traditions Flax Seed Giveaway

This post is also from An Herbal Bedfellow. Flax seed is something of a recent discovery for me. I'm always looking for ways to get more fiber. Flax seeds are an easy way to get a little extra fiber. I like to put them in my oatmeal, cream of wheat, and homemade granola. The giveaway for a one pound bag of flax seed ends on Friday, May 21, at midnight.

Motif 1&2

Catherine's Crafting recently returned to blogland. She joined a 25 motif tatting challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing more of her work. Welcome back to blogland!

3 of a kind, but no pair

Yarnplayer dyed some more thread this week. Every time I see one of her skeins, I want to buy it! Or learn how to make my own HDT.

Confetti Egg Salad with Olives, Pimentos, Salami, Scallions, and Parsley

Farmgirl Fare is an awesome blog. My basic pizza sauce recipe came from Susan's blog, and has been tweaked to my family's taste. I was also introduced to Pesto on Farmgirl Fare. If I ever get around to making this recipe, I would probably leave the olives out, or put them on the side. Somehow mixing olives and eggs doesn't appeal to me.

Chocolate and Zucchini: Daily Adventures in a Parisian Kitchen

Chicken and Radish Salad with Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

This recipe is from one of my favorite food blogs: Chocolate and Zucchini. Not only do I like the name, but the recipes are interesting, as well as the background information on strange-to-me ingredients. I've also enjoyed the Edible Idioms series of posts, and the monthly desktop calendar wallpapers. Clotilde has also published a cookbook, Chocolate and Zucchini: Daily Adventures In a Parisian Kitchen, available from

Enjoy this week's posts! I will be sewing and helping Mom with preparations for my Sis's wedding all week - less than 2 weeks now!
