Welcome to our 9th weekly potluck party… what better way to make a Monday a little more bearable than sharing great food!
If you are a new visitor, please check out our Make a Food-“e”-Friend (MAFF) Monday page for more information on what this party is all about.
All guests will want to check out a separate ongoing party, the Star Recipes Collection party, where the most popular recipes from blogs have been linked. It can be accessed through the link above, our left sidebar, or Star Recipes page. New recipes continue to be added, so you can check back again whenever you need a great recipe idea that you know has been popular.
This week I am excited to bring our surprise recipe last week, because The Chef created it especially with me in mind and it is one of my all-time favorites of his:
They have been popular already, and if you like the ingredients that are required to make them, I feel certain you will like the end result of the combination of flavors. And what better day to share this with all of you than today, our 12 year anniversary! That’s right… 12 years ago today, we were married in the town where we met each other in college at a church that became so special to us during that time in our lives.
I have to also tell you that when The Chef asked me yesterday if I wanted anything special today (and of course, our minds usually go right to food in these types of discussions), the thing that came to my mind was strawberries, for some reason! I do love strawberries, but usually, it is chocolate/peanut butter, oreos, or cheesecake that I would be thinking about for a special treat. He suggested the Strawberry Freeze recipe we served not long ago, and it was perfect. Current circumstances in our lives do not allow us to experience big celebrations of these special occasions, but we are perfectly fine with keeping it simple and sweet for now!
Just a few reminders about linking in this party:
1) You can link a recipe or any type of food-related blog post (including giveaways or free food coupon offers). Make sure you use the URL for the actual post and not your blog (or those interested in what you are sharing may not be able to find it if it’s not your most recent post and will miss out on what you wanted to share!).
2) Don’t forget to link back to this potluck party, using either a text link or the button image. This is especially important if you are linking your recipe or a great blog post and want it to be included in the index (see bottom of this post). To make it easier, as I know some of these details can be a little confusing:

3) If this is your first visit for a Monday party and you would like or need more information about the party or how to link-up, please click here. I’m so glad you joined us and hope you will come again next week!
4) Most of all, have fun and be sure to check out any recipes that interest you that others have brought to the party. (How else will you make new Food-“e”-Friends?!) Some weeks I am not able to make it around to all of the recipes, but I so enjoy seeing the different things that are shared at these parties and check back when looking for new recipe ideas. We actually used a recipe from a previous party tonight… but more on that later!
