Weekend Potluck (formerly known as Foodie Friday)

It's Friday!
And I'm probably going to confuse a whole lot of you for a few minutes (bear with me).
Every Friday, some fellow bloggers and I have been hosting Foodie Friday which is a link party to share all 
the great things food bloggers have been cooking up. And it's a chance for our readers to get some new recipes.  

We've decided to give Foodie Friday a face-lift.

Introducing....
Foodie Friday's name has been changed to Weekend Potluck.
The party will stay the same, you link up the same way, only the name has changed.

We decided to change the name because we wanted a name for this party that really encompassed what this linky party was all about. And we all kinda saw it as a potluck where food could be shared and enjoyed all weekend long. Food bloggers can link up their dishes starting on Friday and continue to link up through the whole weekend. And my fellow co-hosts and I will continue to promote and share all of your lovely food creations all weekend long.
So we thought the name Weekend Potluck really suited us better.

We hope you'll stick with us by linking up all of your delicious recipes and 
we hope our readers will continue to visit all the recipes that are linked up each week.
We really think this change will be for the better and that this linky party will continue to grow.

~*~ GIVEAWAY ~*~

In celebration of the change, ONE blogger who links up will win a copy of Everyday Food: Great Food Fast.

Last week's link-up was incredible. So many amazing recipes! Our blogging friends really stunned us with so many delicious recipes, and we struggled to pick three to feature. You really need to go back to last week's party and get another look at the yumminess! The recipe that gained the most attention (clicks and re-pins on Pinterest) was...
Mud Hen Bars by Cooking with K

We also enjoyed...
Mashed Potato Balls from Forkful of Comfort
Creamy Pepper Jack Chicken Dip by Sunflower Supper Club
