Our 7 Links…..

We were tagged by Jessica at Jessica’s Dinner Party to participate in the 7 links project.  Jessica is living all of our dreams and attending Le Cordon Bleu in Paris.  We love keeping up with her cooking and travel adventures and are often in awe of her amazing creations at Culinary School.  Thanks Jessica for tagging us!

This is how the 7 links project works –  The project asks bloggers to select seven posts that fill the following categories:

1. Most Beautiful
2. Most Popular
3. Most Controversial
4. Most Helpful
5. Most Surprisingly Successful
6. Most Neglected Post
7. Post we are Most Proud of

Once each category has been filled, the blogger selects five more fellow bloggers to continue the project and on it goes.   Stacie and I enjoyed discussing which posts to select and here is what we agreed on…..

1.  Most Beautiful Cooking with Mom: Chicken Biryani

When it comes to beauty it’s hard to compete with a perfectly iced cupcake, a decadent chocolate cookie, or a scoop of velvety ice cream. But my pick for our most beautiful post is Simran’s mom’s Chicken Biryani which looks so good I could just dive right in. But what really makes this extra special is the love it’s cooked with. With every bite you feel like you’re getting a great big hug. What a beautiful thing indeed!

2. Most Popular – Coconut Mango Pancakes

The post that started it all – it was an instant success – very early on when we starting blogging.  It gave us the momentum and encouragement to keep going.  I haven’t made them in a while and perhaps it is time.


3. Most Controversial

Can’t think of one….hmmmmm…….We may need to stir the pot more….

4. Most Helpful – Jam Jar Craft: Spend-Save-Give

Several of our friends have incorporated these little decorated jam jars that teach you about money and so much more into their kids lives.  An Italian website featured them as well.  Hopefully, in a positive light 🙂

5. Most Surprisingly SuccessfulCondensed Milk Ice-cream

This was one of the those recipes that the idea was better than the product.  I was intrigued by the concept and it seems other people are too. This post gets a steady number of people visiting everyday and we are quite befuddled.

6. Most Neglected PostThe Great Fort Mason Adventure

One of the first adventures we wrote about and might still be among the best. This corner of the city has so much more to discover than you might imagine…. As a 2nd generation native San Francisco and frequent visitor to Fort Mason, I never knew the community garden existed until Simran wrote about it. Would love to share this magical place with more people.

7. Post we are Most Proud ofCollecting Memories Around the Dinner Table

This idea blew me away.  It is something that every family needs to incorporate into their dinner time routine.  Stacie is enjoying going back these days and looking at what they were talking about a year ago.  A family dinner journal beyond compare.

Here’s our friends who we are tagging to continue this project:

Lena at A Happier Meal

Anya at Cooking with Caleb

Chandani at Sensible Cooking

Anna at Chef Wanabe

Emily at Fuss Free Cooking

  1. I enjoyed your 7 links! I had some posts that I didn’t read before so I check them. Chicken Biryani looks soo good that I just finished lunch but I feel like I can easily eat them. Very nice. I should try the coconut mango pancakes too. I love 7 links… bringing the old posts alive!

  2. Your Fort Mason Food Adventure post is the one that got me hooked on your blog when you first posted it!! My family should do it again while the weather is still so nice. Thanks for the reminder.
