Last week I did my first post on my “favorites of the week.” I really enjoyed sharing some of my favorite bloggers and recipes with you, so I decided to make this a weekly thing.
The inspiration for a “favorites” post came from the lovely Chef Pandita. She has a delicious link post on Mondays that I was lucky enough to be mentioned in. I thought it was a great idea, so I am starting a tradition of my own.
From now on, once a week I am going to share with you 5 of my favorite recipes from the past week or so.
And without further ado…

These little personalized pies are so cute! I have been wanting to make my own pie in a jar for a long time. They are the perfect size, and would make a great gift. She also mentions not wanting to share dessert, and I completely understand. Dessert is the best part of the meal…why share?
2. Amy from Fragrant Vanilla Cake – Chocolate Red Wine and Olive Oil Cake

Amy made this delicious looking chocolate, red wine, and olive oil cake. Can you imagine how luscious, and moist this cake must be?? To top it off, she spread homemade raspberry jam in between the layers, and covered it in vegan chocolate frosting. I think this would be the perfect cake for a date night or anniversary. This cake is beautiful, and elegant.
3. Kate from Diethood – Peanut Butter Cupsphoto courtesy of diethood.com
Kate shares her take on a classic, peanut butter cups. I don’t know many people that can resist the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. I know that I can’t. When I saw her post on how to make your own at home I knew I was doomed. I love the addition of white chocolate and chopped nuts on top, great texture contrast!!
4. Kim from Liv Life – Margarita Lime Cheesecake
Kim made a wonderful margarita inspired cheesecake. I love cheesecake. The silky smooth texture with the crumbly slightly sweet crust…mmm… Kim really took it to the next level with the addition of tequila, fresh lime juice, and Grand Marnier. Her presentation is beautiful as well. She even made little cheesecakes for the perfect single serving size!
