Tasty Tuesday Parade of Foods


TastyTuesday200pix Following Recipes: To Read or Not To Read

Next week when you come to link up for Tasty Tuesday, you’ll see a whole new look here at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam. I’ve spent the last few evenings going through hundreds and hundreds of posts and re-categorizing them for easier search-ability and organization. It was so fun to go back through the history of Tasty Tuesday, and how it’s evolved over the last two years. Every week, I appreciate your support and the inspiration you give to others.

One of the aspects I will be adding is the ability to submit a guest post. My Food & Cooking category is chock full of a variety of topics, but I will be adding more C.O.S.T Cooking post (Cook Once, Serve Twice or Three Times),  and Ten Minute Dinner ideas, along with Cooking with Kids, Recipes, Tasty Tuesday etc.  I just wanted to give you, my favorite foodies, a heads up about this feature, since I will be looking for the ten minute dinner recipes, as well as frugal meal recipes first. My request is that it’s a newly published, creative post (not a post already published elsewhere), along with sharp, clear pictures (unlike the ones I sometimes take of my food at 9 pm, which I always regret. 🙂 )

Pardon my brevity. I’m hoping to have this re-design up in the next day. It won’t be a completely finished product, since I’ll continue to tweak categories and posts, but there will be some fun, new additions.

Can’t wait to see what you’re all cooking this week! Please make sure to follow my simple requests below.

Simple Rules for Tasty Tuesday Parade of Foods –  As always, please link directly to your recipe post and not your blog URL, so that everyone can find the recipe months from now.

Also, link back here so that everyone can join in the fun, it’s just common courtesy of blog carnivals. Please do not link up a recipe meme that you have started. Thanks for your understanding.

  10. I’m hoping to be inspired by your coming changes to finally do the same myself over on my blog. 🙂 One of my favorite things about blogging is the inspiration we all are able to share with one another!

    Today I’m sharing our recipe for Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins. I’m not sure why, but the photo didn’t work and I’ve got the little blue guy in its place. Thanks for hosting! Blessings, ~Lisa


  11. Looking forward to the new changes. Thanks for hosting.


  12. Oh I’ll be so interested to see your new categories as I’m trying to streamline mine as well! Hope it’s OK if you inspire me a bit. 🙂

    Well, I am supposed to stream line mine, but I still end up having ten….yes, my designer suggested many less, but with such a range of topics, it was too hard. BUT, with all those, comes easier navigation to where people want to go, so that’s the plus.

    Oh my goodness, LESS than 10? That could never happen either over at my blog!! I’m just trying to figure out how to get it down to 10…


  13. Hi Jenn, looking forward to seeing your new stuff! I sometimes think blog designers, like IT people have no clue what we creative types do! Less than 10? no way! Linking up a great bacon eggy breakfast muffin that doubles as a good brown bag lunch for kids. All the best, Alex
