Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop #84: Thanks for the Love

Hi friends. It’s Wednesday and time for another Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop at Pure Grace Farms! Last week we broke the 400 barrier with 424 posts…amazing!  It warms my heart to know that my personal goal was met. Now I can retire from the Wonderful Wednesday blog hop knowing the mission was accomplished! Woo Hoo!

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop #84: Thanks for the Love TRIPLE THE LOVE!

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop #81 As I have been doing all month, I have switched things up a bit at the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop promoting “Triple the Love!”  

This is how it works. Each time you link up on my site and leave a comment (so I know you linked up) I will feature your post on my Facebook page during the coming week. I will also tweet to the heavens and pin your fabulous post on one of my boards. That’s what I call Triple the Love!!!  If you have a moment, in your comment please tell me what you have shared. With so many great posts being linked up it makes it easier for me to find yours. :) 

Triple the Love Since I have been co-hosting The Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop my Preserve the Harvest Series has not been getting the love and attention it deserves, so…I decided to put it front and center along with the Hop in hopes that you might also give it a little love while your here. This week I am sharing Blackberries and Canning Homemade Blackberry Syrup.

This amazing dessert had the honor of being number 400!
I love promoting those who come in a little bit later in the process but this lady wasn’t at all late. She did it JUST RIGHT! Sara’s post is our first in the 400′s ever–no one will ever be the FIRST #400 again! Isn’t this sundae cake a really creative idea? I love it!

Spinach Parmesan Souffle

Spinach and Parmesan Souffles

Spinach has always been given a bad rap. If it wasn’t for Popeye when I was growing up I never would have touched the stuff. Now days I can’t get enough of it. Funny how our tastes change as we get older. It’s a good thing too; spinach is easy to grow and as my mother…
