Results of Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style

This past Monday I kicked off my Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style recipe exchange. I must admit, I wasn't sure how it would play out. Imagine my surprise and delight as Holiday recipes started quickly pouring in!

Not only did many of you contribute a recipe or several recipes, but you also shared heart warming stories of how you came by these treasured family recipes. Each post that has been linked is fantastic! Believe it or not, there have been well over 200 recipes submitted!! Amazing!

Thank you all for participating and sharing your recipes! As promised, I've visited each and every post (at this time there have been 72) to check out your recipes. If I've somehow missed you, please let me know. I'm sure I'll be back again as I begin the task of collecting all of these recipes together.

Don't hesitate to stop back often to look up recipes. I'll leave the "Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style" button on my sidebar for quick and easy reference. And if you think of more recipes to submit or you didn't get a chance to when this exchange was first launched, by all means, feel free to stop by and do so anytime!

Again, thank you to all who have made this Holiday recipe exchange such a success! I won't be lacking in ideas for my holiday cooking for a long, long time! I hope you've enjoyed the recipe exchange as much as I have.

This is awesome. I have more recipes I can try once my wrist is done healing.

BTW you have an awesome blog, I will add you to my list.

Also I am praying for Canon. What a sad story and such a happy looking boy, he has had rough times, but I hope he gets his strength and soon prevails over all this.

This was a great idea. I know as soon as I can begin to eat solid foods again I will be looking up some of the recipes listed.

This really was awesome. I'm certain I'll click through again during the holiday season.

And I so appreciate the time that some of you took to help me with my mystery recipe. It was so thoughtful and heartwarming that you did that! I look forward to trying your suggestions in the weeks to come.

You had such a great idea! If I was you, I would look into published a "Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style" cookbook!!!

Thanks for giving everyone a chance to exchange even more yummy recipes!

Oh's Thanksgiving this weekend here and I've not even done a bit of grocery shopping yet!! Guilt is setting in! LOL.

It was a lot of fun. I'll keep the button on my sidebar also. I'll even edit the link so it goes directly to your post. I'm working on that gift idea. I'll post about it soon.

Thanks for thinking of this!

That was pretty cool. I'd wanted to participate but then, um, I got sick. :(
I'm going to have a lot of fun checking out all of the recipes, though!

At 7:30 AM, Blogger Stacey said...

Okay - this was AWESOME!!!
I have to tell you my great idea: I decided to compile many of the recipes into a cookbook and I am going to give it away as gifts this Christmas along with a crafty ingredient type gift (like dry ingredients for gingersnaps in a decorated jar) or a baked dish from the cookbook!!!!

I have had such fun reading every single link!!!! Woo-hoo!!!

WOW! I hope to read through and get inspired! Someday I will cook and it will be because of all your excitement about cooking!

It's all of us who should be thanking you! It was so nice that you created and hosted this recipe exchange. I took a break this week for my sister's visit so I have only managed to get to a few so I also really appreciate you leaving it available for those of us who plan to spend some time going through all the recipes.

Thank you for doing this. It was a wonderful idea and obviously a big success!

At 8:15 PM, Blogger Kelli said...
