Lunatic Loves These Links – August 12

Hello lovely readers. I hope everyone has enjoyed their week. I’m sure everyone is so happy the weekend is here. Time to sit back, relax and enjoy some down time. Love weekends. I mean who doesn’t. Well I suppose people who work on the weekend hate weekends. Okay so boo for those who work on the weekend, your bosses should give you huge bonuses. You can quote me on that. Tell them Kim said to give you a raise and a bonus immediately. You deserve it.So it’s been a long, wild week. Lots has been going on and I am enjoying life to the fullest. This week brought my first time on foodbuzz’s top 9 and let me tell you I just about woke up the whole country hooting and hollering. I was so floored. I have a really crappy camera so to get that pic on there was a real treat and meant so much to me that you all took the time to vote for me. I love you all. You….and you….and even you….and you over in the corner, the quiet one, you too. I adore you all. I also experimented with some new recipes. I made some pretty cool stuff. I made marble pistachio bark and ate almost all of it myself. This stuff is easy and quick. This stuff rocks! You can find the recipe HERE!So that’s what I’ve been up to. I usually post this on thursdays but I  may rethink that and either do fridays or mondays. Not sure yet. But I will keep doing this every week. And now on to you lovely folks. I bookmark a ton of stuff but for time reasons and not wanting to overdo this I have decided to pick a set number to share each week. So this is your:BAKER’S DOZEN:

I was floored and stunned this evening to discover that The Shiksa in the Kitchen had put me on her list. Tori does a weekly review and does picks of things she likes on the web. My Marble Pistachio Bark made that list and I honestly got teary eyed. I am new to the blog world so to have Tori like something I did just makes me grin from ear to ear. I don`t get emotional much, I am very stoic for a chick. Yet to see your recipe picked by someone like The Shiksa is such a honour. I do not take these things lightly and am incredible humbled by it. You can check it out HERE! Tori I am forever grateful, this made my year! I adore you! xx

Okay my lovelies. I am off to do my Farm Fresh Friday post. So hope you liked this one and am hoping you trust me and go check out all these blogs. I have decided to start doing this on my other blog and list links for healthy recipes and fitness blogs. I will be doing that one next week, I have not been keeping up over there as I should. Two more weeks of summer and everyone being home and then back to reality and hopefully I can get some stuff done.

Enjoy your weekend. Check back soon for produce, produce and more produce.

Photos missing due to a G+ incident. Will be restored soon. 

Toodles and smoochies. xx

    I'm so intrigued by those eggplant fries, especially with the wonderful heat of Sriracha. I love that stuff. Thanks for introducing me to a couple of bloggers I've not seen before too.

    you are killing me with all those incredible treats you made, I love that pizza, and especially the bark, pizza and eggplant fries!
    I think I just gained 5 lbs reading your post….sigh

  8. janet@cupcakestocaviar says

    Oh, I need to cook a dozen batches of each and every one of these dishes… and then eat them until my stomach hurts. Sooooo yummy!
    Congrats on the pick from Shiksa! Cool!

  9. Kim Bee says

    @ The Mom Chef- Thanks so much. Just discovered sriracha myself and am loving it. You are so welcome, I love passing on the blog love. I find tons to follow through other blogs and twitter.

    @ Chef Dennis- Aw, thanks so much! I had a ball last week. I did not lose any weight last week due to these recipes but hey, life is short, enjoy it right. Lol! You are welcome, I enjoy letting people know who inspires me. Cannot wait to see your new site. So exciting.

    @ The Culinary Lens- Thanks. Those fries were incredible. Just something a bit different.

    @ Janet- Lol, if you do invite me over and we'll chow down together. I often eat until my tummy hurts. I was stunned by The Shiksa picking me. I was teary which is really unlike me. I kept grinning like a lunatic, then tearing up. Think the fam was ready to commit me over that one. lol

  10. Stephanie@ Eat. Drink. Love. says

    Great post, Kim! And what an honor to be in The Shiksa's picks! Btw, the fries look INCREDIBLE! I saved that post and it's officially on my to-do list!
