Creating Community during Tasty Tuesday

Mar23

Last weeks Tasty Tuesday experiment was a huge success!!

From many of you, I heard from that you received comments and visitors that do not normally occur, so thank you for taking my request to heart and sharing the visit love.ย  I was so thrilled to hear that since I am all about creating community here at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam.

One of the things that has connected me into the world of blogging is the sense of community that came from so many of you. In our day to day routine of getting meals on the table, it sure is wonderful to know that we’re all in this together,, even if it is just a pat on the back for our Tasty Tuesday recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚

I will continue to do the image linky because people loved it , (but maybe not every single week). I like to surprise you all. Some friends want to know the title of the recipe, some the blog name, but I have no preference, so it’s completely your choice how you title it in 20 characters.

As always,ย  Please link directly to your recipe post and not your blog URL. Also, link back here so that everyone can join in the fun. I’m all about fun. :)

(If you’re reading this by email or in your reader, you will need to click over to my blog to enjoy all the amazing recipes. Trust me, you’ll want to do this.)

I can’t to see what you were all cooking in the kitchen this week.

  1. I think the pics are so much fun, and I already see EXACTLY what I needed today. Yay!

  2. I still keep putting my name instead of the name of the recipe, but other than that I’m loving the new links! (And that isn’t the fault of the links, it’s me making the same mistake every time – doh!) Hopefully next week I’ll get it right ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, thanks for hosting!

  3. Hi Jen~

    One of these days I’m going to get around to joining Tasty Tuesday! For now, I’ll enjoy looking at some of these yummy recipes.

    I am SO GLAD to hear that there was more “visiting” after your appeal last week! I like to think that the trend of “linking and leaving” is being halted, at least a little. It’s so much more fun to get to know people!

    Thank you for hosting these Tuesday parties so faithfully. Hope you’re having a great week!

  4. Hey, Jen! I like this new linky thing!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I decided to link up again after reading your “community” message. I stopped for awhile because (to be honest) I was spending lots of time leaving comments, but not receiving any in turn. :s I hope your encouragement will turn things around. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m off to Bible study this morning, but will be back this afternoon to visit. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for hosting!!

  6. Hi Jen!
    I LOVE all the food pics! Very cute:) I look forward to trying so many of these tasty meals. I don’t have any to contribute today as I don’t take pictures of my food often, but I will try to get some up soon. Have a great week! Elena

  8. I’ve been away from Tasty Tuesday for a bit, but I gave you some linky love on my blog today, added the link to my Facebook page and left my Mushroom Barley Soup recipe on your blog. Awesome, and I can’t wait to try out some new recipes!

  9. I don’t love the image linky on everyone’s site, and it bugs me every time that I can’t put my full “name.” But on a food blog, this is a great addition! (Yes, even without my name.) ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. What a neat link up. I can’t wait to explore all the yummy recipes! So glad Smockity Frocks sent me over:)

  11. I LOVE the pictures! This is great! I agree it looks more appealing. Hopefully I’ll usually have pics from now on!

  12. I’m back with another opinion. ๐Ÿ™‚ This image linky definitely makes me click and visit more!!!

    [Reply]

  13. Wow! This is so cool! I love it. Thanks for hosting . I love being able to see what I am looking at.

    [Reply]

  14. Comments are the best, aren’t they! So much more meaning than those Google Analytics stats! LOVE the picture feature!

  15. Ok Jen,
    Did you like the movie Under the Tuscan Sun? Do you love Italian? THEN, you have to SEE this recipe! You may even want to purchase her cookbook. Who knows?

  16. This is now my favorite meme to join because of the picture links. It makes it so much easier to visit new blogs and see the wonderful food!

    [Reply]

  17. I was out of town last week, so I was surprised by the pictures. I really like it, it is much easier to find recipes that I want to learn more about. Maybe I am just a visual learner. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. It’s my first time here, and I accidentally posted my name when I meant to describe my recipe, and I don’t have a cute photo…but I hope somebody will check out this yummy alternative to meat sauce anyway! Thank you for hosting this. I promise to come back and look at the recipes!

    [Reply]

  19. Thank you for hosting again! I do like the pictures because they give you a better idea of the recipe – and some of them look irresistible!

    [Reply]

  20. Thank you for this! I always get some great ideas!

  21. Jen,

    I am just trying to catch up with everyone after my knee surgery. How wonderful, the images are awesome. I hope to join Tasty Tuesday very soon. Love all your work you have been doing.

  22. I am so inspired and excited to see all the food photos. What a fantastic idea!!! I think there’s a better chance I’ll be trying some new recipes now!

  23. I like this new link thing. I haven’t been posting recipes lately, but I always enjoy looking for new ideas from these Tuesday posts. Thanks for doing this and for helping to create community.

    Blessings to you today…
    Jennifer

  24. I so prefer the โ€œphotoโ€ link on Tasty Tuesday. When I search links I get very aggravated wasting computer time on blogs and recipes that are not what I am interested in. Last week I was able to find a really good bread recipe by spotting a photo of 2-loaves of bread on the Tasty Tuesday photo link. Not only do I now have a really good Oatmeal Bread recipe but I really enjoyed browsing through the blog that posted the recipe! So, please consider keeping the photo link, itโ€™s a time saver!
