Timesaving Dinners and Tips at #FoodieFriDIY no 34

Sharing is caring!

Welcome back to #FoodieFriDIY!  We like to think this is one of the best places to share your favorite recipes and DIY projects, as well as find new ones to try! 

This week we’ve finally got our new logo! I can’t get it to load on my computer though for some reason and I am leaving for Florida so it will have to wait for next week. But you can see it below with my features…what do you think?!

Have you joined our Group board on Pinterest yet? We would love for you to join us! You are welcome to pin anything you share with us at the party, as well as up to 10 posts a day. Your pins do need to be food or DIY related though (crafts, tutorials, and organizing is fine).  The rules are listed on the board.

Follow A Dish of Daily Life / Michelle Nahom’s board Foodie Fridays and DIY on Pinterest. 

If you’d like to be added, please follow the board above, as well as all of the hosts of this party (see below).

Then fill out the information on this Google doc, and you will be on your way to joining us!

We also now have a Facebook Community, which is growing. This is a place you can promote your recipes and projects, and we’re offering multiple boosting threads a week. If you are interested in joining us, please fill out this Google doc.  

FREE PROMOTION FOR YOU –> If you stop by my Facebook page with one of your recipes or DIY projects that you linked up at the party, I will guarantee a share of that link on some form of social media.  My features and faves will get even more special attention with even more shout outs and shares to some of my favorite group boards as well!   This week though you may have to bear with me a little bit, because I am going to be traveling to Florida to run a half marathon with friends during the party. If you leave me a link, I promise I will share when I get back!

[Tweet “#FdBloggers and DIYers, come party with us at #FoodieFriDIY! @adishofdailylife loves to SHARE!”]  

This week it’s all about easy…easy meals, timesaving tips, ideas to help you simplify your life. As always there were a ton of great posts, and I’ve pinned quite a few of your links from last week to our Features and Faves board in addition to these.

Please stop by and check out the board…follow it and pin a few of your favorites as well! We really do want to promote you all as much as possible and when you share as well, our reach extends that much further! 

Timesaving Dinners & Tips

Fish Tacos with Wilted Cabbage from Sidewalk Shoes: Simple, fast and easy…and I love fish tacos!

Pin it for later HERE.

Freezing Wine for Cooking from Frugally Blonde: Don’t throw out the leftover wine (or the wine you really didn’t love!) again. Freeze it and use it for cooking…such a simple concept, but I’ve never done it. I will be now though.

Spicy Cashew Chicken from the Chunky Chef: This delicious dish on takes 30 minutes…perfect for busy moms!

Pin it for later HERE.

Organizing your Bills so you don’t miss a Payment from Mom’s Favorite Stuff: This is a great tip…I’ve used this system before and it worked, so I am not sure why I got away from it. I need to start up again.  

Pin it for later HERE.

Slow Cooker Coq Au Vin from the Wilderness Wife: Anything that I can make in the slow cooker that looks this delicious is going on the menu!

Pin it for later HERE. 

Slow Cooker Cheesy Ham Potato Soup from Recipes for Our Daily Bread: Soup is the perfect comfort food, and I love that this one can be made in the slow cooker!

Don’t forget to show our features some love! Pay them a visit. Head over to our Features and Faves board and repin your favorites! 

Follow A Dish of Daily Life / Michelle Nahom’s board Features and Faves @ Foodie Fridays / DIY on Pinterest.

Please follow the board as well…after all, it is the place we share our favorite posts that you link up. You may very well find yourself on it!

Ready for the party?

We’re not really a rules-type party. But here’s what we do ask. 

1. Link up your favorite recipes and projects from your own blog. Roundups are fine as long as they include links to the recipes or DIY projects. Please DO NOT link a post without a recipe, project, craft, or tutorial.

2. We’d be truly grateful if you shared our party to other food and DIY blog friends so others can join in the fun! Tweet us. Share us on Facebook. However you can help us spread the word, we appreciate!

3. It’s not a requirement of course, but if you can, try to visit another link or two and leave a thoughtful comment. Give someone a shout out on social media. Use the hashtag #FoodieFriDIY…we’re trying to grow a community for all of us, and it’s always nice to make new friends.

4. If you’d like to include a link back on the individual post you linked up, we’d love it, but again, there is no requirement to do so. We are working on a new button if you’d like to put that on your sidebar or link party page. We’re hoping to have it for next week. Stay tuned.

And now for the party!

I have to admit, Michelle - I was looking forward to this. I'm way behind with blog reading but I knew I'd have this to read and to catch up on Pinning!! Thank you!

The toughest part about this linkup is knowing where to start! I wish there was a random button to pick one for me. Have fun in Florida!

I clicked on over to Sheryl's blog this week because that Slow Cooker Coq Au Vin was waiving it's hand in my face, "Pick me! Pick me!" And indeed I did and can't wait to make it! Have an absolutely awesome weekend, Michelle! :)
