It was a pleasure to be the host for Weekend Herb Blogging this week.
Weekend 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!
Sugar Plum Fairy of the brand new blog Vanilla Strawberry Fields used rosemary to make Herbed Chicken and Squid. Sugar Plum Fairy resides in Goa, India…welcome!
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…
Nate from House of Annie used yams to make these luscious looking honey glazed yams. Nate resides in Sarawak, Malaysia!
