Saturday Stumbles Jan. 29

I've had a crazy good week for blogging, and otherwise in fact, in spite of the flu. Take that, flu! Speaking of which, the cheese-free week was not terrible. In fact, I feel so much better I've decided, at the least, to seriously limit my dairy in the future. I found and made some great cheeseless recipes. I did not try the vegan cheese, but I wouldn't hesitate to try it in the future. 

I've had several recipes featured and my blog featured AND a blogger award granted to me. Awesome. For more on the award and who I appreciate in blogging this week, see blogger award and recognition. Thanks to all the lovely ladies who featured me this week and to those who create great blogs for me to follow. You'll find those who featured my blogs and recipes in my "Features, memberships and sponsors" sidebar. Thanks ladies!

But, on with the favorites.

Fried Nutella Ravioli: What? Yum. As you well know, I'll probably find a way to bake or crock pot bake these instead of frying! Girlichef has a lot of great pasta recipes.

Black Bean Brownies: At first I had no idea what to think of Angie's recipe. Black bean brownies? What the heck? But, I really love zucchini brownies. Maybe this is a similar venture. Then again, maybe black beans and chocolate are delicious together. Either way, it's worth it as an experiment.

Ham Solo in CandyBaronite: Hilarious. I'm going to have to head over to Booturtle's to steal borrow her Han Solo candy mold to make these with coconut bacon.

Vegan RoTel Dip: Even if you don't do this vegan-style, you have to appreciate the lack of Velveeta. My husband hates velveeta, so I definitely appreciate this (and I could sub cheese if I chose. Plus, velveeta's creepy like twinkies and never goes bad.

French Onion Soup: I love French Onion soup. But, of course, it has beef stock in it. So, I'm digging Vegan Miss' vegan version and I love the retro cookbook. Hilarious.

There are so many more posts that caught my eye this week, this is but a few. Thanks to all the bloggers for sharing your knowledge with all of us.
