Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Party #5

Welcome to this week’s Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Party!

Wow – you just keep amazing me each week with all the wonderful things you are linking up and sharing.

I have especially enjoyed all the fun Valentine ideas and have pinned many of them and are saving them for next year.

I think with all the Valentine fun I am a little sweeted out (is that a word??  I don’t think so!)  I decided this week to feature some of you who linked up some nice savory dinner time ideas.  I am always looking for new recipes to try for dinner and I’m excited to share with you some of the yummy ones that were linked up this week.  Plus a fun crafty idea or two!

But first this week’s most viewed link was these darling Valentine Apothecary Jars from the Real Thing with the Coake Family.  So cute.  There is also a great tutorial for how she put them together.

I got some great new dinner time ideas from last week’s linky part.  This Mango Chicken with Coconut Rice from Just Another Day in Paradise looks delicious and right up my alley!  Can’t wait to try it.  I love that it is cooked in a crockpot.

I have been trying to use my crockpot more so there were several recipes that caught my eye this week including this Supreme Pizza Lasagna from Bakerette

We also like breakfast for dinner at our house  and I think these Banana Pecan Pancakes with Butter Syrup from Butter, with a side of Bread may be gracing our dinner table soon.

I won’t be waiting until next Valentine’s Day to try these pretty and delicious Strawberry Pancakes with Vanilla Sauce from Annie’s Noms!!

There were a few crafty ideas that caught my attention this week too.  I am in love with this tutorial for beautiful paper dahlias from Twigg Studios.  So pretty!

dahlias-001Being the self proclaimed Washi Tape junkie that I am I can’t wait to try some of the 100 Ways to Washi from The Night Owl.  So many fun ideas.


As always, thanks to everyone who linked up and shared!

So let’s get this week’s party started!

It’s easy – all you have to do is link up YOUR recipes, crafts, ideas, projects or fun posts to share.
Please no Etsy shops, giveaways or advertisements. Please link directly to the blog post, not your blog.
I’d love for you to share something new that you haven’t shared at previous Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Parties!

A link back is not required but if you’d like to here is a button (or a text link is fine if you’d like but not required.)

After you link up  please take the time to visit some of the other links (at least two please) and HAVE FUN!

Next Saturday I’ll be back to share some of the links that caught my eye and you can link up again.

When you’re done linking up here, visit my other favorite Saturday link parties:
