It was a pleasure to be the host for Weekend Herb Blogging this week.

whb-210-150x150Weekend Herb Blogging is a weekly group blogging event that was founded by Kalyn of Kalyn’s Kitchen. WHB is a great way to share recipes about herbs, vegetables, fruits and other plant ingredients. WHB is currently managed by Haalo of Cook (Almost) Anything At Least Once, and next week’s host will be Lynne from Cafe Lynnylu.

I loved getting so many great submissions from around the globe…thanks to everyone for participating! Here is the recipe roundup for weekend herb blogging 210…

We begin with Laurie, who hails from Anchorage, Alaska. She blogs at Mediterranean Cooking in Alaska and featured kale in this lovely Recipe for Kale Puttanesca. Make sure to read her analysis of artisanal vs. “regular” pasta (she recommends artisanal for this dish).

Tigerfish from California runs the blog Teczcape- An Escape To Food and also cooked with kale in a recipe for Chinese-Style Kale Stir-Fry with Garlic. So vibrant…looks delicious!

Marillyn Beard (Costa Rica) of the blog Just Making Noise used beets to make a simple yet gorgeous Classic Beet Soup. So lovely!

Kalyn from Kalyn’s Kitchen used persimmons for the first time in this Whole Wheat Couscous Salad with Persimmons, Grapes, Green Onions, Mint, and Pine Nuts. Wow, what a combination…

    Graziana,
    So sorry for leaving you out!
    I didn’t receive any emails from you, though, nor do I see an incoming link from
    one of your posts…if you let me know which post it is, I can figure out the rest of the details and add you in…

    Wonderful roundup Winnie,

    And special thanks for including my submission even though I forgot to submit it!

    There are so many things I want to try this week. I have my eye on the kale pasta and those nut biscotti.

    There should have been a warning about that peach though–definitely NSFW!
