This is the last installment in my 7 Links Challenge.  The sixth and seventh parts of the challenge ask for : your most beautiful post and a post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved.

# 6 Your most beautiful post – Chocolate Fig Tarts | Fresh Figs in Good Company

Based on the response I received I think the Chocolate Fig Tarts is considered my most beautiful post.  Although I might have chosen my Mixed Berries in Rosé Wine with Honey Mascarpone | A Summery Fruit Soup simply because that first photo reminds me of summers in France when I look at it.

The Chocolate Fig Tarts were born out of a desire to use the Calimyrnas that caught my eye at the market.  They were plump, fat, golden-green orbs, bulging at the sides and lusciously sweet.

I paired the figs with a dark chocolate coconut milk ganache in a a gluten-free and grain-free almond tart crust.  I can never resist a good chocolate dessert as you may be able to tell from my chocolate gelato, chocolate blueberry truffles and my chocolate and milk toast and I suspect that I’m not the only one!

# 7 A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved – Kitchen Inspiration | Tools of the Trade

This was a post I truly enjoyed writing.  The idea for the post came after a guest post I had done.  The idea was to write a short “thank you” to my kitchen, like I would an old friend.

It made me think about the relationship that I have with my kitchen; how it makes me feel, how it inspires me, and the role it plays in my life. 

I started to notice all the little things in my kitchen that inspire me when I’m cooking and the memories they recalled.  It was a special post for me and I would have loved to see it get more attention.


And that concludes my version of the 7 links challenge.  It wasn’t always easy to choose, but it was great fun, thank you Jeanne for nominating me.

And now, I nominate the following bloggers to take part in the challenge:


Amanda from i am baker

Naomi from Bakers Royale

Susan from The Urban Baker

Marla from Family Fresh Cooking

Sukaina from Sips and Spoonfuls

    So hard to choose, your posts are all so stunning. I have to say I really enjoyed your Mixed Berries in Rosé Wine with Honey Mascarpone post, but then again, the Chocolate Fig Tarts post was also beautiful, so dramatic.

    Your series was so well presented. Can I go against the grain and tell you I think your most beautiful post is the Zuchinni and Quinoa salad? I love how the recipe is bursting with flavor, texture and different types of food . . and of course it’s so elegantly photographed.

    But this is my second favorite post by along with your blueberry truffles.
    And thank you so much for nominating me.

    This was the one I was most excited to read! It’s hard for me to pick a most beautiful…every time you post, I just think, awe that’s gorgeous. As for the last one going to read it now!

    I don’t know how you could pick a “most beautiful”, because all your posts are incredible, but I do love that fig tart 🙂 Also, this reminds me that I’ve had my own “seven links” post in draft for the last month or two…oops! Time to finish it up!

    your right about your kitchen tool post, it was glorious and certainly deserved more attention…as for your most beautiful post, it would be too hard for me to pick they are all gorgeous!

    Well, I must be one of the ones that did enjoy “Tools of the trade” maybe because I love them, they inspire me, they are the most precious thing I have (in the kitchen) Without good tools, even the most skillful artisan fails! This said, all your posts are excellent!

    I love those chocolate fig tarts – but I would probably still vote for that summery fruit soup – it was so gorgeous!! Love the idea of writing a letter to your kitchen and I agree 100% – why do we “save” all our most beautiful things and only bring them out for other people?? Life is too short! Thanks again for rising to my challenge of the 7 links & I have loved reading yours!
