Mouthwatering Mondays {Week 5}

Oh my goodness, y’all!  It’s a good thing that Mouthwatering Mondays is a BLOG post instead of a VLOG, because I don’t have a voice!!!!

My voice started going right before my session on The Principles of Storytelling at BlogHer Food on Friday morning, and by Saturday’s closing party – I was whispering.

I had such an amazing time this past weekend, y’all.  I met so many new people, reconnected with some of my favorite people; ate delicious food, danced my heart out, took no pictures, ate delicious food, walked a lot, and learned some new things, too.

Here are a few pics from the photo booth at Saturday night’s Closing Party at Stubb’s:

Heidi, Me, Kelley, Maria, and Jeanine

Oh, and then there’s this picture from after my panel when Elise Bauer came up and hugged me and complimented me and said we could be sisters {swoon}

snagged from Elise’s Instagram stream


Now on to Mouthwatering Mondays!

Y’all are sharing some serious deliciousness, and I swear that I need to put a protective padding over my computer while I click through to y’all’s recipes!

Here are a few of my favorites from last week’s linky!

This Pretzel and Toffee Peanut Butter Brownie recipe by Six Sisters’ Stuff on My Recipe Magic looks positively sinful! {they were at BHF and we somehow didn’t meet!}

This Seared Pork Tenderloin with Lemon-Garlic Butter from Sweet Plantains made my mouth actually water!  Y’all know my weakness for lemon and garlic!!

This Chocolate Dipped Banana Cream Pops from I Wash, You Dry sounds like summer on a stick.  Can’t you just see drippy hands, happy tummies, and chocolate smeared faces!!!

I can honestly say there’s never been a time in my life where a McRib sandwich has sounded appealing, appalling maybe, but never appealing.  Well, all that changed when Carrian from Oh Sweet Basil shared her homemade McRib sandwich last week.

 I treated my family and neighbors to Bakery Style Blueberry Cheesecake Muffins last week 🙂

Don’t you wish you were my neighbor?
