The Freshman Cook: The Yuck Stops Here! #5

Welcome! Welcome!

 This is the fifth week of The Yuck Stops Here link party. What a great week we had last week, lots of yummy recipes and tips! Please remember that this is a RECIPES only party, recipe tips are welcome, but crafts, etc. belong somewhere else (not that we don’t LOVE them, we’re just sticking to recipes here)! 

We’ve changed our start and end times!

 The party now starts every TUESDAY evening at 8pm Eastern Time and ends the following Sunday at 8pm ET. That gives you plenty of time to link up and to visit each others awesome posts! We’re still looking for a few good hosts! If you would be interested in joining us in our effort to Stop the YUCK everywhere, hop over to our The Yuck Stops Here Hosting Info page for more information.

 Here in my home we hear the word “Yuck” WAY too often. This is a party to gather recipes that can be used in homes everywhere to reduce the number of times we hear THAT word. Here you’ll find lots of YUMMY recipes from great bloggers everywhere. Link up your own & enjoy the delicious talents of others who have linked up theirs.

 Each week, each of our awesome Co-Hosts will pick a special feature, so please visit each of their sites to see who’s recipe made the cut! We will also feature the MOST CLICKED post. ALL of the featured posts will be pinned, tweeted and shared on all of our social media sites. All links will be pinned to my The Yuck Stops Here Pinterest Page so please feel free to visit. Every link will be tweeted or shared by at least one of the co-hosts!

 What to do:

  • Link up your delicious recipe posts!
  • Don’t Re-link (if you’ve linked it here before, don’t link it here again).
  • Link directly to the recipe post, not to your home page.
  • Include ONLY family friendly links.
  • Include a link back to the party (grab the button in my sidebar if you like to make linking back easy or just link back on your post – here’s some info on how to link back)
  • As a courtesy to others, visit other posts (I usually visit at least 3) and leave a comment if you are so inclined.


 Please follow each host via at least ONE social media platform, and visit each host’s website to check out their features for the week!  Host: Cheryl King – Hot Momma’s Kitchen Chaos

This week my featured link is from Dawn from the blog Spatulas On Parade. I just love her healthy Fruit Nachos. I need to eat more healthy foods, and this recipe is full of  fruit and WOW Butter and honey, and well, just check out the recipe!

 Everything in it is yummy!

Thanks for a great recipe, Dawn!
