Two of my daily reads – Lynn and Katherine – tagged me for My 7 Links. I’ve been having fun checking out others’ posts (and who doesn’t love reading through their old archives?!), so I decided to give this a go!


To unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.


1) Blogger is nominated to take part. 2) Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category. 3) Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part. 4) These bloggers publish their 7 links and nominate another 5 more bloggers.

Here are my 7 links:

Most Beautiful – Seeing Clearly – This post includes photos taken from the morning I received my new Nikon camera. Every single one of these pictures makes me supremely happy.

Most Popular – Blogger “Blind Date” – We all know that bloggers clearly love to read about other bloggers, but when they meet up in person, bam! Everyone tunes in. I had a great lunch with some gorgeous LA ladies! We were very snap-happy.


Most Controversial – Eh. My blog is my happy space, and therefore controversies are kept to a minimum. But, for the sake of linking – Buh Bye Detox. After Julia and I stopped our detox on the 5th day, we actually felt guilty. We both called our moms for “permission” to quit. Something about not sticking to our commitment? While everyone was so sweet and supportive, I am calling this controversial because why oh why did we think we needed to eat like this for a week??


Green juice + green soup.

Most Helpful – Black Bean & Sweet Potato Enchiladas – I’ve made these for most everyone I know. I’ve emailed the recipe to numerous people. I’ve even fed them to a 3-year-old. I’m nominating this post because I am HELPING you create a foolproof meal. And no one likes to fool around when it comes to a good dinner, right?

Suprise Success – A Fishy Experiment – Apparently sardines are an intriguing ingredient. Or, as the boy would clarify, a firm “no” when it comes to cooking. I kind of liked them though!

Not Enough Attention – Reflections – I think a lot of bloggers struggle with messaging. What does your blog say about you? Is it accurate? When I first started blogging, I wrote about every single bite, lick and taste. In this post, I talked about how much I hated this recounting and the pressure I was putting upon myself. Today, I’ve found what works for me. Although, I would like to write more…but that’s a goal, rather than an obligation!

Most Proud – Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: Brunch on the Beach – When my sister moved to LA, I got to treat her and my best friend to brunch at Shutters, thanks to Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24. It was so great bringing my two “families” together, and I felt like such a hotshot for getting to do so!


And here are the 5 people I tag:

Natalie @ Will Jog for Food
Kristen @ The Swanky Dietitian
Lesley @ Leslie Lifting Life
Biz @ My Bizzy Kitchen
Kristie @ Lighter Portions

You’re it!
