Hi. Was traveling yesterday to St. John and wasn’t able to participate. I’m sneaking in today. I write about my intuition but now that healthy eating makes for a clearer connection. Hopefully, soon I’ll make something and send it into you. What a great blog idea….as a food lover. I’m very excited! Here is my blog. No pressure https://www.facebook.com/unbreakablejoyintuitiontalesblog/ I’m just making up for lost time. I won’t eat those cheesy fries….but I LOVE looking at them and daydreaming about it!!! Nice to meet you.

Esme: Hello! I am scheduled to have a granola recipe featured on the Sharing is Caring recipe exchange in December but it seems as though you are posting more recipes and you were encouraging bloggers to send more than one? So, I am sending a few more recipe links that would be good to make this fall. Let me know if you can find a place for them.
Thanks for doing what you do on your blog. It’s lovely to see so many different kinds of cooking in one place!
I will let you know the release dates tonight. Thanks

Thank you for responding, and I will think about it. Have you had any responses to this initiative so far?
Yes for sure. Already done 3 guest posts and the 4th will be released ar 1am my time. I do one per week and already have more scheduled. Please let me know once you’re ready. Would love to showcase your recipes. Have a look under the section Guest Bloggers for those already released. Thank you for your condideration to participate.
Thank you for responding. I will definitely look. This might be a silly question, but what kind of recipes should be considered?
Any recipe that’s yummy and you like and if you made it so much the better. 😊
That’s the question: I make all my recipes, and in my humble opinion, all of them are yummy, otherwise I wouldn’t be making them, would I?
Good stuff. You can send me as many as you wish. No problem. On which of those posted did you get the best feedback? Maybe start with those your readers like best.
Good idea, thank you. I never bothered checking!
Following your advice, I analyzed my stats. The most favorite, by far is this one:
