Young Grasshopper's Featured Five

Here's to YOU!
I've decided to add this segment because I see so many awesome posts and recipes every week  I just want to raise my glass to them and of course share some of them in case you missed them.  Clearly, I could come up with dozens but these are my TOP FIVE or as I like to call them
Young Grasshopper's Featured Five 
for the week ending April 6th 2012 {listed in chronological order, no favoritism among my favorites!}:

From Gerry at Foodness Gracious.... Macarons with Bacon and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream... Gracious is right, I've got a serious thing going on with bacon so this was right up my alley.... Gerry, can't I just come over and have one of these?

Averil from From

and The Clay Boy Maker posted her 
Onion Loaf that made me swoon. 

Kristina at Whipped makes me want to head to Mexico so I can come home inspired and bake some Margarita Lime Buttercream Sandwich Cookies, oh ok I may do it WITHOUT going to Mexico! 

Jaime at the Tomato Snob took the picture is worth a thousand words approach to some Dr. Suess..... LOVE it! What a fabulous meal with friends.

and last but NEVER least, Choc Chip Uru's Chocolate Pavlova Bird’s Nest


and because I can't count or
maybe it's and "one more for good luck!".....
an encore pick goes to
 for the best looking Hot Cross buns ever!

HUGE Thank you to all for letting me repost****
