Eat Make Grow Thursday Blog Hop #14

Welcome to this week's Eat Make Grow Blog Hop where you share what you have been eating with your family, growing in your garden or making with all your creative impulses. Eat Make Grow is a collective link party that is shared across three blogs and runs every Thursday-Tuesday. Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on all three sites! Eat Make Grow is a way to share with many people posts about your domestic doings, whether that’s growing veggies, hosting parties, sewing, mixing up cleaning supplies, or trying out a new recipe. We want to learn about it! Every week, we will feature the most popular link, and one chosen by the host. This week, your host is Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!

Your Hosts
Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!
Foy from Garden. Cook. Write. Repeat.
Miranda from Pocket Pause
Here are the rules:

No big corporation or business advertising or promotional posts. Let’s not dilute Eat Make Grow with junky posts. We don’t mind helping out the little home grown businesses of independent bloggers or handmade merchants (Etsy, etc.).
Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Eat Make Grow community by sending your readers to all of the other participant’s posts. We will feature two posts each week and we will only consider posts that have a link back. A text link is fine, or you can grab this button and put it anywhere on your blog:

Here's our features:

Our most popular post this week was Planting Garlic from Bepa's Garden. This one made my mouth water. I LOVE garlic and use it all the time in my cooking. And dipping fresh bread into raw garlic and olive oil is my idea of a perfect appetizer. This post made me want to try a few different varieties. Stinky Breath Party, anyone? Check out Rob's wonderfully informative post about when and how to to grow your own garlic.

And my choice this week is the post {Homemade is Better} - Dried Apples and Apple Chips from Craft Room Confidential. I'm a sucker for healthy, kid-friendly snacks! Well, #4 there doesn't look soooo healthy, but it definitely looks Mama-friendly! Visit Lynn's blog for the basic recipe and links to some fun variations.

  2. We hunt for the majority of the meat we eat as a way to live more sustainably. I get asked by a lot of women how to get started so I shared a post with tips specific for women who want to learn how to hunt.
