SC Doughnuts 11

Elie chose Strawberry Cake Doughnuts {Yellow Butter Cake Mix + Strawberry Greek Yogurt = Strawberry Cake Doughnuts!} from Cooking With K. “I loved the Strawberry Cake Doughnuts from Cooking with K! They are so quick and easy and sound delicious. Perfect for any weekend morning!”

Ce Ce also chose this post. “This is such a great idea, I have always wanted to make homemade donuts. I love food blogs! I wish I can say I’m a foodie, but I don’t cook much and I love to eat!”


Carolyn chose Loving, Supportive Parents Make Me Not Want to Have Kids from Surviving and Thriving in the Second Year of My Divorce. “I chose [this post] because it’s straight from the heart and just really honest!”


Tenns chose How To Choose a Web Host from Blog U. “This post was such a good write up on hosting companies, that I feel more confident about who I’ve chosen as my webhost. I’ll definitely be referencing this post in the future when my current hosting is up.”


Shana chose Amazin’ Vegan Flourless Black Bean Brownies from Urban Naturale. “Deborah does a great job explaining the nutritional and health benefits of the vegan ingredients in her flourless black bean brownies. It’s nice to see healthy versions of our favorite indulgent foods, and this recipe certainly fits the bill.”


Rachel chose The So Called Perfect Body from Home is Where the Heart Is. “I truly connected with this article because I felt scarred and never would have had such confidence after my pregnancy. Body issues among women is a leading topic and this message is positive and beautifully written.”

Natasha also chose this post. “It’s amazing how body image impacts us as women every day. I’ve always had issues with my body, but never more than when I went through a c-section to give birth to my son. But every day when I watch what my body was able to create, I become less and less focused on my body image and more on creating happiness in my life. Great post!”

This post also received the most clicks.


Rebecca chose Put A Pin In It – A Reader Friendly Pinterest Option from MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter. “There are a lot of Pinterest tutorials out there but this was really helpful – and offers something a little more than just that little hover button!”


Stacey chose How to Make Butterscotch Sauce from Little House Living. “During the summer, when I was a kid, we would go to get ice cream sundae’s and butterscotch was my favorite flavor to get. Butterscotch has been discontinued at a well known fast food restaurant, so I look forward to giving this a try.”


Debbie chose Blueberry Vanilla Creme Brulee from The Crafty Side of Sarcasm. “I absolutely love Creme Brulee and have never even thought of having blueberry vanilla creme brulee, this sounds amazing and the directions were very detailed. Can’t wait to try it!”


Jillian chose Don’t take your eyes off your kid. from Little White Dinosaur. “I chose this entry because it is summer and everyone is going swimming, this is a reminder as to why we need to pay close attention to our children as they go swimming.”


Katie chose Living Flower Wreath from Oh My! Creative. “I love the look of this wreath … Just stunning! I love that it’s easy to water. And I love how original and creative this is! Perfect for summer!”

5 easy recipes

Kae chose 5 Easy Recipes while on Vacation from Eat Drink and Be Merry. “I chose that link because I liked how simple it is to make and cost efficient. Definitely something I will take forward when I go on vacation next month.”


Katy chose Caprese – The Perfect Summer Food from The Coconut Head’s Cancer Survival Guide. “Caprese is one of my absolute favorite foods, so I’m always excited to see new recipes to try and think it’s such a great fit for summer weather.”
