How the game works: There are 7 categories to link to a post you've already written, and then you tag 5 blogger friends to take their turn.
1. Most Beautiful: Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Whipped Cream
I loved this cake and thought the dense chocolate cake was so good with the sweet raspberry whipped cream. I also thought the light pink icing looked pretty with the deep dark brown cake. :)
2. Most popular: Strawberry Pound Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze
This was the first time I ever had a picture accepted by Foodgawker and Tastespotting and I was thrilled to say the least! It's still the post that gets the most hits-- I guess everyone else likes pound cake as much as I do!
3. Most Controversial: Strawberry Streusel Muffins
Thankfully, I haven't had a controversial post yet really, although people who have been blogging longer than I, assure me that its inevitable. Yikes! That's not a pleasant thought! Anyway, I'm offering these strawberry streusel muffins instead. These were one of my early blog posts and one of my all-time favorite muffin recipes!
4. Most helpful: How To Make Stuffed Artichokes
5. Surprisingly Successful: Spiced Peach Carrot Quick Bread
I'm always looking for quick bread recipes, but apparently everyone else is too because this became one of my most popular posts! It's always surprising to me to see what's going to do well and what going to get an "ehhh" response. :) I do love this bread-- so good with a cup of coffee!
6. Post that Didn't Get the Attention it Deserved: Dad's Favorite Chocolate Cake
This was one of my first blog posts before I knew about cropping photos, Tastespotting, Foodgawker, Twittering, Pinterest... a lot has changed since February. As the title says, this is my Dad's favorite chocolate cake and its mine as well. I like this photo because you can just see a little bit of my cat Bella on the left as she's watching me take pictures.
7. Post you are most proud of: Lemon Blueberry Cake
I chose my first blog post as the one I'm the most proud of-- even though the pictures are kind of dark and funky. I'm really glad I took the plunge and started blogging. I was nervous to start the adventure but am so glad I did. I have met so many wonderful people in the 8 or so months I've been blogging and am constantly impressed at how kind and encouraging the people in the food blogging community are!
