A trip down memory lane – my 7 links

Joanne over at Fifteen Spatulas was kind enough to tag me in the 7 links challenge yesterday.  Thanks again Joanne. 🙂

I was previously tagged by Anna over at The Hospitality Guru, so this is a repost of my 7 links.

The purpose of the challenge is to select posts from 7 categories from your blog and invite other bloggers to do the same.

The 7 categories are:

  1. Most Popular Post
  2. Most Controversial Post
  3. Most Helpful Post
  4. Most Beautiful Post
  5. Most Surprisingly Successful Post
  6. Most Under Rated Post
  7. Most Proud of Post

This is a great way to unite bloggers from all over the globe and to re-introduce a few old and forgotten posts which may not have received any recognition from when we were still newby bloggers.

My 7 are:

1.  Most Popular Post

I am taking the popularity of this post from the number of views and not number of comments – my normal daily views TRIPLED for this post. 😀

My folks and my beanie


2.  Most Controversial Post

I was a little worried about posting this one, but think that it was received better than what I originally anticipated.


3.  Most Helpful Post

Undoubtedly, this would have to be my post on Abbreviations and Conversions.  This really is a concise list of helpful info.

Abbreviations and Conversions

4.  Most Beautiful Post

I think this would have to be the post a friend of mine in Mauritius photographed for me.

Pears in red wine

5.  Most Surprisingly Successful Post

Not sure how to quantify the successful part but I guess I would have to say my, Getting to know you more post where I asked questions to help us learn more about each others culinary likes and dislikes and 5 fellow bloggers were kind enough to share in the fun.  I have compiled another fun post, which I will share next week with links to the other bloggers answers.

Getting to know more about each other

6.  Most Under Rated Post

I am not sure if I am supposed to take this from my blog stats or in my opinion, so in my opinion and just because this is one of my favourite recipes, it would have to be my post on Carrot Cake Cupcakes.

7.  Most Proud of Post

Aah, there is a slight catch with this one  as I have not done the post yet – I will soon, I promise, and just to whet your appetite a little… we have printed a few copies of my book to sell – YAY!  These will be “limited-edition” books as when we do a reprint, we will be changing the format slightly and moving away from a spiral bind to a standard “perfect-bind” oh and we will also have it available as an e-book. 😀

  1. –Mandy,
    —oh, i loved the post about your mommy& daddy. 🙂 That was my fave.
    This is a cool Idea….Yes, I shall do this on my next post. (for sure.)
    How kind of you to mention my name.—You are beautiful….and not just because your food is SO good either. xxx

  2. Oh yay!!! I’m such a fan of this 7 links, and I adored your red wine pears. So pretty. Can’t wait for the cookbook lovely. Your a champion. I’m truly blessed to be able to hang out with amazing people. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Xxx

  3. thank you for sharing and paying it forward! I would love to know how you did the e-book?! And of course I want to order a first edition xxxx

    • Hi Tandy. We are still in the process of doing the e-book – quite a challenge for me – we are going to use 3 formats – a standard PDF, a Mobi format for Kindle and EPub for all other readers – hope that made sense. Thank you so much for placing an order – my first official order! YAY! This is all very exciting. Have a happy week. 🙂 xo

  4. I love reading these posts to get an idea of what each blogger thinks of her/his own work. I loved your post about your parents and I, too, would have thought that the the vegetarian depiction would have created some controversy.Thank you for including me in your list and I’ll get right to work on it. Enjoy your week, Mandy!

  5. Great list and congratulations on the e-book! What a great accomplishment! I love the pear pics and I’m going to go back and read the conversion one. I also find your women’s home companion cookbook ones very helpful. 🙂

  6. A great idea.. and how exciting for you another edition of your cookbook…I’d love a copy also…keep us posted we can all have a launching day cyber party get together! Have a great week! x

  7. Oh, you tagged me :D, you naughty girl!
    I think your carrot cupcakes look lovely. Sometimes I am really surprised at what gets loads of comments and what doesn’t. I try not to let it guide me though. I try to keep my blog about what I want not about what I think other people want.
    *kisses* HH

  8. Wow, am I glad I found you.. now I am going to go back and study each of your 7. 7 is such a great number! But I am so recently begun i am not sure i even have seven pages that would cut it.. am still learning the ropes really and Love Blog World.

  9. Thanks so much for including me in your post, means a lot!! Sorry I didn’t see this until now…I was flying home from NY on Monday. I’ll post soon. 🙂
