  1. I love pizza, and these all look so delicious. This week I have shared an old family recipe for Crunchy French Bread Egg Pie. It's frugal, easy and very tasty too! Thank you for hosting, Jenn. Have a lovely week!

  2. Thanks for hosting! Have a great week!!

  3. As a former child of the 80's and avid sticker collector, I'm pretty sure I had that scratch and sniff. I can totally smell it right now! Thanks for the throwback...and for hosting!

  4. OMG That pizza scratch and sniff sure brings back memories! Hope you are having a good week... i'd love to hear more about what you are studying (-:


  5. You totally have me craving pizza now!
    Thank you so much for the party!

  6. Man you are right..I do want that to be a scratch and sniff...I loved those stickers! I also love pizza and now have a huge craving for some sort of pizza for dinner:-) Thank you so much for hosting!!!

  7. Hi Jenn
    Thank you for hosting another party
    I'd looooove a slice of pizza now (make it 2 slices) as I'm hungry now!:)

  8. Jenn, thank you for hosting!

  9. I think I'm glad this isn't scratch and sniff because I'd be starving after looking at those pizzas. YUM!!! Thanks for hosting and for always having such a fun theme!

  10. A scratch and sniff pizza! That's hilarious. Where do you find these things? Hope you're having an amazing day Jenn!

  11. Thanks for the shout out on the pesto pizza! Today I linked up a great dessert - choc and caramel covered rice krispie bars! So yummy. And so dangerous, especially if you want to fit into summer clothes! :)

  12. Thanks for hosting!! Enjoy your week. Megan

  13. Oh how I love pizza, it's one of my most favourite foods... it's got everything I need in one place! Sadly I am currently kick-starting myself back in to healthy eating but I've bookmarked some of those recipes for treats when I settle back down a bit!

    And thank you for hosting these linky parties, I always enjoy a bit of browse to see what people are up to, I find it really inspires me, which is handy right now as my crafting mojo has done a runner recently!

  14. hi there my friend! sorry i was away for a week or two -- just a bit overwhelmed -- so glad to be back -- portobello pesto ROCKS!!!! hugs!

  15. This is my first time on your carnival - thanks for hosting! Your pizza party inspired me to share my own gluten free pizza recipe - so for those of you celiacs who couldn't enjoy the pizza party last week, now we can enjoy some pizza as well!

  16. Jenn, my rhubarb romance is in full swing, so I've shared a rhubarb syrup recipe that I am going to use in some rhubarb-champagne cocktails for a Mothers' Day dinner. Happy Mothers' Day to you. I hope Jeff and the girls spoil you. xoxo Camilla

  17. I so remember that exact scratch n sniff sticker!!! I also remember the ones that didn't smell so good, like the gasoline one!

    Thank you as always, dear Jenn, for hosting the party!

  18. OMGoodness I loved the scratch and sniff stickers!! :) Thanks for hosting. :)Have a lovely Mothers Day!!
