Tag! I'm it!

I'm it alright.

This tag is all about your own stuff. I think it's a great idea to highlight some long forgotten posts or some lonely, neglected, uncommented recipe ... especially during one's early days of blogging. I'm happy to be tagged by Three Cookies to take part in this 7 - Link Challenge. That's 7 of your own posts in relation to the categories and then to nominate 5 victims bloggers to join in. No extra cooking or baking required.

2 simple rules:

1) publish links for the categories below (1 link per category)

2) nominate up to 5 bloggers to take part

Here are my links:

1. The most beautiful post:

Hmm ... well, this link I chose for this category isn't about the looks of it but rather the content, the memories that are beautiful to me. Apple Sauce. I loved those times when mum was so able, capable and independent. Today, we can just talk about those good times since she's no more mobile due old age.

2. The most popular post:

That would have to be Spike! Yeah, I named my pie. I picked this based on the number of views.

3. The most controversial post:

What? Who? Me? Controversial? Wouldn't dare. This is so lame but it'll have to be the Red Velvet Cupcake.

4. The most helpful post:

I've 2 categories on my blog called The Occasional Tip and DIY with some helpful hints. Here's one .... Marshmallow Plugs

5. The post that was surprisingly successful:

This was so funny! It wasn't even supposed to be featured. It was just one of the many dishes we had for our dinner and at the last minute decided we'd just snap a shot just for the heck of it and it turned out to be a top9! Fried Pumpkin

6. The post that did not get the attention it deserved:

This poor biscotti ... I'm not sure if it had even been looked at. So lonely and sad :( This was actually a very good recipe using egg whites ... very light and a great snack. That's why it got to be featured above :D Egg White Biscotti

7. The post that I'm most proud of:

Most may not find this too interesting but it took a lot of elbow grease (ouch) for the dough. And the chicken turned out beautifully moist! Salted Dough Chicken

And my 5 nominees ..... (drumroll)

1. Citra - My Home Diary in Turkey

2. Elisabeth - Food and Thrift Finds

3. Kita - Pass the Sushi

4. Megg - Pop Artichoke

5. Kelly - Food Pusher


  1. Ooh, I'm excited! It will be a few days before I get this post up - but I definitely want to participate. It will be fun looking around my own blog again :D

  2. Fun seeing some of your older posts, Ping! I'm still in awe of of the most beautiful pies I've ever seen :)

  3. Nice, the biscotti looks great in the photo and I am sure it tasted delicious too. And its also interesting to serve cookies in a glass:) I wonder why it never got the attention it deserved. Salted dough chicken sounds great, I have been thinking about this for sometime and one day I will attempt. And I will consider your advice - do not eat the dough:)

  4. Kita: Happy to know you're participating! No hurry, no time limit. Looking forward to seeing your links!

    Lizzy: Aww ... thank you so much! Hug!

    3Cookies: Thanks! At least it's getting some eyeballing right now. Haha! The salted dough could do some serious reconstruction to your dental work :D And btw, if you don't like the idea of chinese herbs, you can substitute it with whatever herbs and seasonings you like. It's a great way to cook. I'd do it more often if it wasn't so arm-breaking to make the dough.

  5. Yaayyy... Thx for tag me ping... now I must think who's gonna be my next 5 nominees .. ow btw, I like your egg white biscotti though ! ^,^

  6. I'm honoured that I got to lay eyes on Spike! That is one damn impressive looking pie! Loving the rest of your links too :D

  7. A very cool idea. I have been been looking at a few of these and never feel like I have enough posts to choose from.

  8. Ping-I'm so excited about tagging me, as well!
    Am I the next victim?...LOL so funny! I will do my best to link up 7 posts. Actually I'm really looking forward to backtrack to my previous posts, to share. Love this game, and I thank you so much, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness!

    Love all your links of the past posts, and I do love your light, crispy, and lovely biscotti:D

  9. We did this 7 Links a while back. Good fun isn't it to look back at past posts and see how far you've come. :)

  10. Fascinating post! I love this 7 links challenge. I was amazed by the Marshmallow Plug and loved your apple sauce post. I totally agree the biscotti look like they should have more attention! The salted dough chicken does look impressing. Congratulations!
    Thanks for sharing your links especially with us, who are your very recent visitors and admirers.

  11. Citra: Thanks for taking part. And thanks for liking the biscotti too :D

    Charles: Hehe ... thanks. It's all in the looks only, think I'd do well in the advertising world? It's just plain ol' bacon and eggs!

    Culinary Lens: It is a great idea isn't it? I didn't think I'd have enough to pick from either but then ... it's only 7... and if I have only 7 posts, those would have to be it LOL

    Elisabeth: Hello dear friend. Haha, yes, you are one of my victims :D .
    I think your recipes should really be shared as they're all filled with happiness and right from the heart. Thanks for liking the biscotti ... it got so lonely for awhile.

    Julia: Hello Julia! It is a super idea this. I'm so happy to be digging through all the old posts. I don't have many but can you believe I actually have some that I'd totally forgotten I had posted?

    Sissi: Thank you so much Sissi! Really appreciate you being here.... great source of encouragement.

  12. oh that biscotti does look amazing!

  13. Simply Life: Hi! Thank you for dropping by.

  14. Love your 7 links, Ping! It's nice to see all those post of yours that I've missed! I totally love your Egg White Biscotti and Spike! They are so gorgeously yummy! ;)

  15. This is my first visit to your blog and it looks like I came on a perfect day. This post gave me the chance to see some of your best posts. I really like the food and recipes you feature here. I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  16. I loved this trip down memory lane! :D

  17. Mary: Hello, Mary. So nice to meet you. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I took a quick peek at your blog yesterday but didn't have much time to browse, and I'm already loving what I could see. So, you will be seeing me more often :D

    Tiffany: Yes, this was a great idea wasn't it?

  18. Hi Ping-I should have done the same thing you did and not even try to post until things get better, and my activity slows down...luckily, I had great help with my d-in-law and granddaughter, who has been looking out for me, since I was alone house/dog sitting at daughter's!
    Thanks for your good wishes, and your kind care and concern. You are such a good frien!
