The Gallery of Favorites – The Make It From Scratch Edition

Gallery of Favorites
April of The 21st Century Housewife and I would like to welcome you to our weekend blog hop: Gallery of Favorites!


This week we are featuring three entries that feature an item made from scratch: Homemade Red Wine Vinegar, Homemade Mayonnaise, and Homemade Harissa Paste.


Jen, of Jen’s Natural Kitchen, shared her experience with making Homemade Red Wine Vinegar. I love the idea of making my own vinegar!

Laura. of Mom Essential, shared two vairations for Homemade Mayonnaise – Spicy or Mild –  both look delicious!

Elsa, of Elsa Cooks, shared her recipe for Harissa Paste. I predict we will see some delicious uses for this in the future!

The Gallery of Favorites is a place for you to feature your favorite posts from your own blog. Although April and I both spend a lot of our time writing about food, we do have many other interests and we know our readers do as well. The Gallery of Favorites is a place for all bloggers – not just food bloggers – to share their ideas, interests and passions.

The Gallery of Favorites will remain open for entries until Monday afternoon. We hope that you will take the time to visit some of the other entries in our Gallery of Favorites. It is a great way to discover new writers, or a new side to some of your favorite bloggers.

  1. I love the idea of homemade red wine vinegar! Great features! Thanks for hosting and have a marvelous weekend!

  2. Hi Alea,

    Love your made from scratch theme this week :)

    I’ve linked up two recipes –  Peach Mango Creamsicles, healthier and better tasting than commercially produced ice cream bars. Plus Frozen Yogurt Tahini Banana Bites with Recipe Round Up. Love a yogurt tahini banana combo!

    Have a great week!

  3. Hi! Thank you for hosting! I shared my Garden Minestrone Soup this week!

    Like Laureen, I also like the theme this week! Such a good idea!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  4. Thank you for the mention!! I can’t wait to check out all the other favs this week. :)

  5. Thanks for hosting Alea. I like the made from scratch theme very much. Good idea!

    I’ve linked my Farmstead Waffle recipe this week. It made these waffles using leftover whey from my homemade yogurt.

    I’m looking forward to exploring this week’s links. Thanks again for providing the opportunity for me to share my recipes.
