Recipe Swap Roundup - Blogger's Choice Part 3

By far the most popular theme for the recipe swaps isn't really a theme at all. It's the Blogger's Choice, where folks are assigned an entire blog to peruse and then pick one recipe to make and blog about. There's more freedom to these swaps, a chance to make what fits your personal tastes and preferences.

Cathy isn't normally a fan of shortbread cookies but she thought she'd give these Chocolate Cranberry Shortbread Cookies a try since they have fruit and chocolate mixed in:

Melissa's Baked Chipotle Chicken Chimichangas were perfect for Cinco de Mayo:

Nichole's husband loves the flavors of Chicken Cordon Bleu so when she saw it as Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza, she couldn't wait to make it, despite some minor kitchen mishaps:

Eva had pinned this recipe for Cannoli Cheesecake, so she was thrilled to get a chance to make it:

I've had my eye on this Chicken in a Tomato Basil Broth over Couscous for a long time and was thrilled to finally be able to make it:

Christina has a tough time cooking for her picky eater husband, but since he loves chicken parm she enticed him with these Chicken Parm Burgers:

Kate is a sucker for chocolate and peanut butter so these Chewy Reese's Cookies won out over the veggie dishes she also had her eye on:
