Hey gang! Did you cross a culinary experience off your bucket list this month? Plenty of people around the world did, so let’s peek into their kitchens, shall we?
First up, in a move that will please nutella-lovers everywhere, Nom Nom Ally has made a healthy homemade version…
Followed by Rachel at Trampling Rose, who tells us how not to make macarons! They still look delicious though…
Paul from That Other Cooking Blog finds himself up against rhubarb for the first time… and makes something pretty spectacular. Rhubarb tarts with creme patisserie, anyone?
Our leader and intrepid Growing Edge creator, Genie, finally attempted something she adores eating whenever she’s out – smoked salmon risotto. I LOVE risotto, which meant I had to learn how to make it fairly early on. Didn’t she do a good job!
Next up on the list are these delectable peach muffins from The Orange Bee. Linda was experimenting with some new products from her work, and these babies are made with pecan oil. Cool, huh!
All the way from (unusually sunny) England is this gorgeous roasted carrot soup from Phuong at My Kitchen of Love. How vibrant!
Ever wanted to know what to do with the less-popular veggies that make their way into your CSA/food share box? Why, make a coleslaw of course! Absolute genius, Salted Plates, I wish I’d thought of it 🙂
With a post entitled “The 108 Year Old Breakfast“, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by Chandler’s story of wandering around her town of San Isidro, eating traditional breakfasts (and making me hungry in the process!) and drinking fresh orange juice. Got a spare room over there? I’m keen for a holiday!
And in a favourite read of mine, Danielle tries keeping up with Jamie Oliver instead of the Holsby’s for something different, and finds that his 30-minute promise of Peri Peri chicken with dressed potatoes, rocket salad and a dessert of portugese tarts is a bit of a fib.
And another favourite, Jo at Down To Earth Mother did something I’ve also been meaning to do for a looong time: homemade sweet chilli sauce! This looks out-of-this world good.
Huevos rancheros are next up, and also next on my list! How effing good did Marnelli from Sweets and Brains do? Ah-ma-zing.
For all y’all with a sweet tooth, then feast your eyes on some dark chocolate cherry brownies, courtesy of My Utensil Crock:
And also on the pile of the “why didn’t I think of this”s, are these amazing nueva herb, sea salt and vinegar chips – where the vinegar is BAKED INTO the chip. Oh my sweet cheesus, you can betcha this is happening in my kitchen pronto. Thank YOU Janet, you made me laugh and be hungry, my two favourites.
And a classic margarita. Where can you go wrong with this? I’m keen for one or two of these and a bowl of those damn potato chips. Sonya at And More Food has got me covered.
Coolcookstyle had me giggling all through her tales of ice-cream making, but ultimately had me drooling at the thought of this blueberry buttermilk sherbert.
And Nom Nom Panda makes coconut milk – something I definitely should try!
And me – what did I do? Well you will find that here. I finally tried freezing and thawing tofu to experiment with its vastly different texture. I made san choi bau and dammit, it was GOOD!
Thanks again to Genie and the gang from Our Growing Edge. I had a blast, added some new recipes to my list to try, and found some brand-new blogs to read. Satisfactory all round 🙂
