Kitchen Klicks: No Fear Entertaining

Today's "Kitchen Klicks" highlights one of my very favorite food blogs out there. Judy's "No Fear Entertaining."

The thing I like about Judy's blog so much is that she makes cooking and entertaining so very approachable. She shows us that making beautiful, delicious and satisfying food doesn't have to be scary and complicated... that it is something to enjoy and be excited about. Her enthusiasm for cooking and feeding her family and friends is infectious!

Another thing I love about this blog is her honesty. If something didn't work for her, she states that. If she didn't love a recipe or if she thinks it could be made better somehow, she says so. These are the kinds of things I look for in a blog when I am looking for new recipes to try.

If you need a great resource for recipes and cooking know-how... I highly suggest visiting "No Fear Entertaining." The recipes are amazing and varied and most have gorgeous photos to accompany them so you can see what you're getting. You won't be sorry!

Recently did an interview with Judy and I've included the videos from the interview so you can listen to her thoughts and advice on entertaining. You can read the entire article *here*

Note: Sorry for the lack of posts here recently... all 3 of the kids, my honey and myself have been down with bronchitis over the past couple weeks. Thankfully we're finally on the mend and the creeping crud seems to be on it's way out! I should be back to posting on a more regular basis again now. Thanks for your patience and all the well wishes you've been sending via e-mail, twitter and facebook. It's appreciated! :)


  1. Wow!!! You are such an incredible person to make sound this good!!! Thank you so very, very much!!!

  2. Wonderful post! Judy is amazing, isn't she?
    On another note, I hope you are all 100% better very soon!

  3. Oh, love No Fear Entertaining. Such a great name (and great content, too)!

    Hope you guys feel better soon. I'm sending you happy thoughts and warm cups of tea.

  6. Sorry you've all been ill.

    Judy's awesome! Good choice to highlight her, she's a gem.

    And I have thought for quite some time about doing something just like this. I have many bloggers I want to brag on and couldn't think of a proper way to do it.

  7. Nice job! I agree that Judy makes it all look so easy -- plus, her attitude about everything is always so positive. As for you, get well fast! I'm more than familiar with bronchitis and know how difficult it can be to cope with. Hang in there!

  8. Hi Jo!

    Interesting food blog to explore and love the sincerity of your recommendation ;)

    It's bizarre because you're in winter, here we're in summer and a lot of people of my family have bronchitis too!

    Hope you'll feel super very soon!!
    In the mean time I wish you a fabulous holiday season :D
