Follow Friday: Inside BruCrew Life

2 Nov

I attended Online BlogCon last week. I learned so much great information..but the thing I was most surprised by was the network I gained. There were so many awesome bloggers and the Facebook page for the group was blowing up 24/7. It was hard to keep up with everyone’s helpful tips and questions.

One of the first people I connected with was Jocelyn from Inside BruCrew Life. I asked a question about blog design and transferring to  Jocelyn was the first person to respond and she gave me a great referral of the woman who recently helped her. Her new page is sooo cute! And she lives in Indiana. It’s probably another reason why I like her so much 😉

After the conference, I was thinking of ways to highlight other bloggers I love. Of course I can pin their recipes to Pinterest, write comments on their posts, like them on FaceBook… but I wanted to do something more. Twitter has this thing called #FollowFriday. You list people you think your followers should follow too. Why can’t I do that on my blog??!!

Even though I come up with a lot of my own recipes, I love making things other people have done. It takes the pressure off of me and I feel relaxed following a recipe. I was always good at following directions and that’s all a recipe is, right?? 🙂

One thing I don’t post a lot of are dessert recipes. I have a huge sweet tooth, so I’m shocked that I don’t. But guess who loooves to post sweet treat recipes?? Inside BruCrew! And guess what people??! These recipes are delicious, unique and use common ingredients. I picked my top 5 favorite recipes from her blog. Trust me, I had a hard time just picking 5. EVERY recipe looks good. So here is my seriously narrowed down list.

1. Salted Caramel Brownie

Milk Duds in a brownie??!! Jocelyn might be a genius.

2. Pumpkin Spice Latte Scones

This recipe will keep your pumpkin addiction alive and you can skip the trip to Starbucks.

3. Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies

Instant pudding adds some extra richness and using Reese’s Pieces make this a fun fall looking cookie. 🙂

4. Carrot Cheesecake Muffins

One thing this recipe title leaves out is the streusel topping…and it’s made with Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal. I know, wow!!!!!

5. Peanut Butter Brownie Batter Swirl Ice Cream

Peanut Butter and Brownies Batter??!! Yes, please! And you don’t even need a fancy mixer attachment to make this ice cream happen.

So what do you guys think?? Are these recipes as drool-worthy as I think they are? Be sure to head over to Inside BruCrew Life and check out all of her amazing recipes! In honor of #FollowFriday, here are all of the ways you can stay up to date on what Jocelyn’s doing in her kitchen.

So, how can you be my Featured #FollowFriday Blogger next week? It’s easy! All I have to know is know about you! Make comments on my blog, get active in Link Parties or take drool worthy pictures. (I’m easily distracted by yummy looking food!) If you are featured, all I ask is for you to tell you followers you were featured on The Tasty Fork.

Have a great weekend, everyone! Next Monday, I’ll have a new post about some tasty creation I made over the weekend.

    This is a really good idea. I’ve been blogging, but only recently started highlighting where I get my inspiration. The Salted Caramel Brownies look great!
