The 29th June Edition of The Gallery of Favorites


Alea of Premeditated Leftovers and I want to welcome you to our weekend blog hop; The Gallery of Favorites, a place to share your favorite posts from your own blog.

Thank you to everyone who shared posts last week. This week Alea and I are featuring Joanne of Winelady Cooks. Joanne is a busy wife, mom and grandmother who loves to spend time with her family. Last week she shared a delicious Mustard Dressed Grilled Salmon which is perfect for summer entertaining.

Joanne also makes desserts and treats, and recently posted some wonderful baked Mini Doughnuts made using healthier ingredients including applesauce, yogurt and agave.

Joanne says, “Like many of you, I’m too busy to cook sometimes so my recipes are easy to prepare and ready in a flash. I am also trying to get my family to eat healthier and I’m using some alternative ingredients to replace processed foods and sugars. The most difficult part of this is making the foods taste as good as they should and getting my family to actually ‘like’ them. We still love our cookies, pizza and snack foods but as I add more fresh vegetables and natural foods I’m noticing that we are craving our favorites less and eating a more balanced diet. Sharing this information makes this challenge more fun.” Joanne hopes her readers will feel free to share their own thoughts and challenges in the kitchen with her too.

As well as cooking and baking, Joanne enjoys a nice glass of wine. She shares her favorites on Wine Review Mondays.

Although Alea and I both spend a lot of our time writing about food, we  also have many other interests and we know that our readers do as well. The Gallery of Favorites is a place for all bloggers to share their ideas, interests and passions.

Please share your favorite posts with our Gallery of Favorites below.

Include a link to your actual posts, rather than to your blog.

Please include a link to one of the hosts in your post, either through text or with our button:

We hope you will visit some of the other posts that are shared here. It’s a great way to discover new blogs, or a new side to the writers you already know.

The Gallery will remain open until Monday afternoon (early evening in the UK).
