Tackle it Tuesday--My Food Post for the Ultimate Blog Party

I've been having a GREAT time looking at everyone's Ultimate Blog Party sites. This is my first year participating & I set an ambitious goal for myself. I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to create a party post for this blog & for my food blog. The post for my regular blog was not terribly difficult, but for my Food blog, I wanted to make & take pictures of all my favorite party foods and write out the recipes. A few of the recipes were things that I have gotten from other people or from product packaging, so those were easy. The ones that were the most difficult were the recipes that are stored in my head (or in my Mother's head).

Over the weekend, my kids & I made and took pictures of most of the food. I sat at the computer for HOURS writing down recipes & then tweaking them to be "just right". Next I had to lay out the actual Ultimate Blog Party Post. The editing screen in blogger is NOT my friend, but I finally got it all done and all the links in. This morning, I put the final touches on, took the last couple pictures & finally published it!!!

Check out 5 minutes for Mom to see what everyone else has Tackled this week.
