    Thanks for the lovely round up, Mark. Your efforts are truly appreciated :)

  2. I love mejadra and it's fab to see a recipe for it here. And Chez Foti's pie sounds delish. Thanks for including my two cracker-sh recipes, including an old recipe (because it fit your ingredient this week). But it is funny to see how awful my first few months of blog photography were!

  3. Hey Mark! I'm definitely going to be pinning a couple of these. YUM! When I saw fennel, I got excited because the second post I ever did a couple of years ago uses fennel. The picture is bad, but the recipe is delicious. In fact, we had it for supper last night. :) Have a great week and thanks for hosting!

  4. I'm so glad you enjoyed, Mich, and thanks for all your delicious submissions!

  5. Your photos (even the early ones) are wonderful, Kellie. I look back at my early photos and cringe. Literally, I cringe. :/

  6. I'm so glad you enjoyed this week's collection and your pileup sounds awesome! I've never paired fennel with egg, but I really should because I love fennel and why not? Thanks so much for sharing!

  7. Great collection! Thanks so much.
