Weekend Round-Up {5-4-13}

lbgc - weekend round-up
Sooo .... we're into the first week of May already! It hardly seems possible, doesn't it? I know I'm not that old that my mind is slipping ... seriously, where does all the time go?!

I am excited to see that my Facebook page is approaching 5,000 fans! I am so excited, that I have been thinking about what to do to celebrate when we reach that milestone! A giveaway for my Facebook fans perhaps? Hmmmm ...

Speaking of Facebook, this week, I asked ya'll about Grits - love 'em or leave 'em ... what we like to grow in our gardens ... rhubarb - yay or nay ... one food you could NEVER give up ... brownies with or without nuts! If you'd like to join the conversation, drop me a line anytime or meet us over on Facebook around 3:30 pm Eastern time! I have a new random question every Monday through Friday and I'd love to see your smiling face there! :)

Here's a look at what happened around the blog this week:

let's get social 3
I am totally loving all the new hosts for Let's Get Social Sunday and the fact that we're now on 9, yes - *nine* blogs every week! If you missed us last week, be sure to join us tomorrow morning at 6 am Eastern time when the party goes live! We'll be linking up and meeting new friends - and we'd love to have YOU join us!

lbgc - menu plan monday
Lots of amped up recipes on this past week's menu! Expect to see a few new recipes on the blog from this week's Menu Plan Monday!

lbgc - all my bloggy friends2
Linda and I hosted All My Bloggy Friends on Tuesday. The party is still rockin' if you want to link up! The party closes at 11:59 pm tonight! Be sure to join us on Tuesday morning at 7 am Eastern time for the next par-tay! We try our best to share the social media love with some of the links that are shared at our party! So come on over and join the fun! :)

m&m chocolate pudding cookies
Sometimes, you just have to eat dessert. On Wednesday, I shared these M&M Chocolate Pudding Cookies. They're so easy, chocolate-y ... and soft! Definitely add these to your list of cookies! You will be glad you did!

blackberry & lemon coffee cake
Here's a fantastic Blackberry & Lemon Coffee Cake .... perfect for Sunday brunch - or Mother's Day! Hello, it is next weekend! She'll love you forever .... ok, never mind the fact that she already will love you forever - but, this will make her love you even more - or something like that! :)

chili cheese dog nachos
Need a new dinner idea that the kiddos will love? Try these Chili Cheese Dog Nachos ... they're kid tested and approved! And the adults are sure to love 'em too! It's also great for those times when you forget to get buns! ;) Not that that ever happens at my house, just ask me and I'll tell ya! :D


Five things I pinned this week that I think you should see too:

1. Romanian Lentil Soup from Slice of Southern - This looks like it would be a budget-friendly and healthy family meal!
2. Pepperoni Artichoke Breadstick Focaccia from Stone Gable - This has to be the best thing I saw all week ..... seriously, look at the picture .... Doesn't it look fabulous?! I need to give this a try ASAP!
3. SnoBall Cake Roll from Sprinkle Bakes - I cannot wait to try this! It's like the little snack cake - but bigger!! I'm thinking this would be a hit at any party :)
4. 10 Easy Holiday Storage Tips from The Family Handyman - I especially love how they contained the wrapping paper! Such a genius idea!
5. Herb Ricotta Gnocchi with Quick Tomato Sauce from Serious Eats - OK ... So I may or may not have a thing for gnocchi ...... it's safe to assume that I do though :) This looks like a simple dish and it's on my list of things to try!

Most pinned post this week: Chicken Fried Rice
Most popular post this week: One Pot Goulash
Biggest referring site this week: Facebook
Most searched phrase: Homemade Alfredo Sauce

I hope you enjoy! Shared at these fun parties!
