Tastetastic Thursday 7/5

I’m feeling more like myself this week, so thank you all for your patience.  My grandfather passed away last week and it was a very difficult week but now I’m home and trying to get back to normal.  One of the ways I’m getting back to normal, is to get back into blogging.  So, as promised, highlights from the past TWO Tastetastic Thursdays.

Roasted Butternut Squash Fries from Life’s Abundant Adventures, Skinny Brownie Beachball Fruit Pizza from French Press, Cheesy Potatoes (on a Diet) from Couponing & Cooking

Blueberry Lemon Poundcake from Lisa’s Dinnertime Dish, Summer Squash Pasta from Don’t Waste the Crumbs, Reese’s Overload Scotcharoos from Something Swanky

Who’s ready to party? The rules are simple:

  1. Please link up no more than two recipes.
  2. I’d love it if you’d follow me using the social media icons on the right sidebar.
  3. Please have a link back to me on your post. I’ll be featuring three links next week, but I can only feature you if there’s a link back.
  4. Click around, have some fun, and get inspired!
(As always, the links show up in random order. No rewards for the early birds, or punishments for those who get there a little later.)
By linking up to this party, you give me permission to use the photo you submitted in next week’s feature.

    Dear Amy…my deepest condolences.

    The loss of a grandparent can be very, very difficult. I grew up with my grandparents and lived with them for many years and their deaths were very painful. The bond between a granddaughter and grandfather is so special. I can empathize with the loss of that relationship. Thinking of you…

    Can you please do me a favor and delete my steamed broccoli lemon and garlic submission. I didn’t mean to share that one. Whoops. Thanks so much.

    This week I am sharing:

    (1) Chicken Mole with Grilled Veggies, Mango, and Sautéed Cabbage

    (2) Strawberry Cherry Pie with Cashew Cream Topping (gluten free, grain free, dairy free, cane-sugar free, SCD frienld)

    Be Well,
