Your Best Recipes (YBR) October Roundup, Yum and Wow!

“Trick-or-treat, smell my feet , Give me something good to eat “ Happy Halloween and boy do I have something good to eat for you! Welcome everybody to the 1st edition of YBR or Your Best Recipe! First I’d like to thank all of you who have chosen to participate this month and I am looking forward to your submissions next month. To the others who are not submitting, thank you for your kind words and all of the support. I hope that perhaps you’ll join us next month.

As I started receiving submissions the words that kept repeating in my mouth (and stomach) were WOW and Oh YUM! Some I was happily reminded of and others were ones I had missed. So I feel that my mission with this YBR event is on a good direction. Ladies and gentlemen here are the scrumptious, drool inducing, Your Best Recipes from October. Please stop by all of these very talented foodies’ blog’s and leave them a kind comment and tell them you saw their recipe on YBR. (The photos are presented in the order of which I received them. A first come first serve so to speak.)

*Notice : Unfortunately those participants that have removed the YBR button/badge from their blog can no longer be included in the roundup. Thank you for understanding.*

    All of these recipes look really hearty and heartwarming! I would never have known about some of the other bloggers (and their best recipes) if you hadn't done this YBR round-up. Well done, and thanks for hosting, Nancy. Looking forward to next month's YBR – which reminds me, I'd better get cooking!
