#FoodieFriday 23 - I'm all Green with Beans!

Welcome to the #FoodieFridays link up!! “What’s #FoodieFriday?” you ask?? I can’t believe you don’t know.  #FoodieFridays is a link up that helps to promote your blog in hopes that you will return the favor and promote our link party.  And, when it's all said and done, we pin every link!!  Win/win!  

That’s right!! It's a party where every link gets pinned. EVERY LINK! EVERY WEEK!! Our linky was even heralded as one of the best link parties to grow your blog by the SITS girls.  And, it must be working because we hit a record 335 link ups last week! I can't believe it!! Can we hit 350 this week? That would be 335 deliciously tasty recipes that YOU, dear readers, have created!
So, make sure to link up your fave recipes every Thursday (except next Thursday, because it's Thanksgiving in the US and we're taking that time off to spend time with our families) starting at 9 PM EST and stop by the following week to see if one our hosts featured your recipe.

To help this fabulous party grow, please place a button on your sidebar or somewhere in your link up post so people can see that you're partying at #FoodieFridays.


Make sure you follow the #FoodieFriday Pinterest board and see all the tasty recipes that have been linked up to this party so far.  It currently has 2400 followers.  That's some pretty good exposure for your tasty recipes or food creations.

Black Radish Chips

I have probably bragged non-stop about the farmers market not far from work and a particular vendor that sells the most amazing and unique produce at any farmers market I’ve seen. This is twice I’ve purchased these beauties from them. I also purchased some last year that I have pickled in my fridge. They just look so…


I mean, honestly, as a food blogger, how can you NOT purchase a bundle of these gorgeous vegetables??

Smarty Had a Party and I'm Giving One Away

I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but…


Yes. I know. It’s a surprise, but honestly it is the holiday season and I’m sure there are MANY of you that are knee deep in party planning. Part of that party planning is making sure you have enough plates, napkins, silverware, etc. Well, I have the solution for you.

Tuscan Pasta Toss - #MeatlessMonday Link Party

With just a few ingredients and a delicious spice mix, you can make a quick and tasty weeknight #meatfree meal.  Tuscan Pasta Toss is delicious, hearty, healthy and can be easily whipped up for a delicious main or scrumptious lunch.

A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures | Tuscan Pasta Toss is delicious, hearty, healthy and can be easily whipped up for a delicious main or scrumptious lunch.

Sometimes our #MeatlessMondays are just pasta and sauce. I honestly try not to do something so cliché, but it’s really NOT easy to think of something deliciously creative for the carnivore in the house. Not that I’m NOT a carnivore, but he honestly turned his nose up at the idea of a meatless meal one night a week and was concerned it wouldn’t be filling.

Ham & Veggie Noodle Casserole

Left over ham or thick cut ham slices are combined with sweet peppers and onions then baked with pasta in a cheese sauce. This easy and tasty Ham & Veggie Pasta Bake is a freezer, pantry and fridge cleaner! Not to mention a delicious meal.

I was taking inventory of our chest freezer the other and came across quite a bit of ham from Easter. We always have ham for Easter. I’m sure not everyone does, but isn’t it almost a requirement for some households? It was always our protein of choice for that holiday.
