Taste&Create VI – T&C December/January Round-Up

Published by myamii at 6:00 am under Recipe Reviews, Reviews, Taste&Create

All submissions for the December/January Round-Up of Taste&Create are finally in! We had an amazing turn out! I’m really happy we are growing! A few people didn’t show up, so if you blogged about your partner’s dish and I didn’t get it, please send it to me so I can update this post! Before we get to all the great posts… I’d like to announce T&C VI. This takes place every month, and the round-up is posted on the 1st day of the following month.
What it’s all about: community, sharing, tasting, and blogging.This is a gathering point for the food-blogger community to come and have their recipes tested by their peers.
How you can T&C:

  1. Leave a COMMENT by February 7, 2008, and include:
    • your name
    • the name of your blog
    • your blog’s address
    • your email address
  2. I will email you by February 10th with your partner’s info, and I will edit this post and put up the partners list at the bottom. If you do not receive an email by February 11th, please look here for your partner and check your spam folder to see if the email was sent there!
  3. You will:
    • Browse through your partner’s yummy blog entries, and pick out one dish that looks really interesting to you
    • Create the dish you’ve chosen
    • Taste it and tell us what you think (aka – blog about it)!
    • Don’t forget you have to include a photo – so snap away!
  4. Email your entry by February 23, 2008 with
    • your name
    • the name of your blog
    • the name of the dish you created on your partner’s blog
    • your permalink
    • 1 photo of your re-creation (just some legal blah blah: I reserve the right to blog with your image, even for commercial purposes. I’m not planning to sell it or anything, but my husband thinks I should add this.)
    • sum up the dish in 1 phrase
    • send your emails to: myamii@rezimo.com
  5. In your post please include a link to this post and/or include the T&C logo, so we can get the word out and have others join in the fun.
  6. Your personal blog entry doesn’t have to be in English, but please make sure that your “summed up phrase” is.

Now, to the good stuff!!

This is what we came up with this month:

Dana from Dulcedo blogged about Seduction Meals’ Lobster & Corn Chowder. Dana says “This chowder is particularly good because you can actually taste all of the individual ingredients you are supposed to taste, from the chives to the celery to the seafood — delicious!”

Dorit from prettybaking in Israel blogged about Bounteous Bites’ Coco-Nutty-Prune Candy. Dorit says “Fits me and our holiday like a glove!”

Ben from What’s cooking? blogged about Cupcake Project’s Margarita Cupcakes. Ben says “Cupcakes gone wild”.

Apu from Annarasa blogged about Hey, That Tastes Good!’s Cranberry Orange Relish. Apu says “Deliciously inspiring!!”

Dolores from Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity blogged about Other People’s Food’s Miso Glazed (Halibut) with Roasted (Winter Vegetables). Dolores says “A brilliant balance of sweet and salty, with a clean tart finish from the lemon, caramelized to perfection under a broiler. MUCH less fussy and far less time consuming than Martha’s version or Nobu’s, this is going to be my go-to miso glaze.”

Allison from Sushi Day blogged about The Skinny Gourmet’s Baked Potato Soup. Allison says “Delicious! But better without the beer.”

Chelsea of Rolling in Dough blogged about Mediterranean Cooking in Alaska’s Rosemary Bread. Chelsea says “A wonderfully moist bread, good with everything from eggs to peanut butter!”

Namratha from Finger Licking Food blogged about Tart Reform’s Marble Pound Cake. Namratha says “Hard to share Marble Pound Cake”.

Dhivya from Culinary Bazzar blogged about A Veggie Venture’s Maple Ginger Sweet Potatoes. Dhivya says “The recipe was innovative, healthy and tasty!”

Gay from A scientist in the kitchen blogged about More Than Burnt Toast’s Lumberjack Hash. Gay says “The verdict? The addition of green bell is inspired, infusing the dish with its distinct flavor and aroma. This is a very filling dish paired with garlic fried rice and will certainly appear again in our breakfast table not just on New Year’s Day!”

Steph from a whisk and a spoon blogged about We [heart] Food’s Turkey Chili. Steph says “easy to make and very flavorful”.

Lalaine from The Cook Mobile blogged about For the Love of Food’s Spicy Buffalo Wings. Lalaine says “A nice platter of Buffalo Wings!”

Stef from Cupcake Project blogged about What’s cooking?’s Pumpkin Chili. Stef says “The pumpkin chili was fantastic. The combination of flavors was perfect: spicy but not too spicy with just a touch of sweet.”

Abby from Eat the Right Stuff blogged about elly says opa’s Youvarlakia. Abby says “comfort food with a twist!”

Chris from We [heart] Food blogged about a whisk and a spoon’s Cranberry Bliss Cupcakes. Chris says “A delicious, and humbling, experience”.

Elly from Elly Says Opa! blogged about Eat the Right Stuff’s Courgette & Lemon Risotto. Elly says “a fresh, light take on a comfort classic”.

Katie B. from Other People’s Food blogged about Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity’s Ricotta and Besciamella Lasagna. Katie B. says “Satisfying and delicious!”

Amy from Tart Reform blogged about Finger Licking Food’s Pita and Falafel. Amy says “While there was an itty-bitty typo in the pita recipe, both recipes were great. Everyone loved them. Most people thought the pita was really good store bought pita until I told them. The falafels were nice and dense, crispy on the outside, warm and smooshy on the inside. De-lish.”

Terry from Seduction Meals blogged about Dulcedo’s Mexican Wedding Cookies. Terry says “Melt-in-your-mouth Delicious!”

Laurie from Mediterranean Cooking in Alaska blogged about Rolling in Dough’s Spicy Squash Soup. Laurie says “Chelsea Greigh’s Spicy Squash Soup is a winner. Its rich spicing counteracts the tendency of winter squash to be overly sweet.”

Val from More Than Burnt Toast blogged about A scientist in the kitchen’s Creamy Linguine. Val says “This dish was very tasty. It was kind of a twist on both a Carbonara and an Alfredo. I loved the addition of the tomatoes and the bacon which added another dimension to the pasta dish.”

Erin from The Skinny Gourmet blogged about Sushi Day’s Mango Salsa Sushi. Erin says “This beautiful east-meets-south fusion maki is a unique and memorable flavor combination that I will definitely make again. It would be a great show-stopper served along with more traditional makis, like tuna maki, salmon maki, or even California roll. The presentation is a bit advanced, and not for the faint of heart, but will definitely impress if you pull it off!”

Nicole (me) from For the Love of Food blogged about The Cook Mobile’s Shrimp & Chicken Fried Rice. Nicole says “so delicious that we fought over it.”

The partner list: (Feb 10th: I will email this list and update it with links tomorrow. My baby has the stomach flu and I’m just exhausted.)

  27. myamiion 06 Feb 2008 at 1:47 pm

    Apu: Yes, you are correct. I will always ask the copy write holder permission. My husband is just worried that someone may try to sue me if I make money with my blog int eh future. For example, with some Creative Commons licenses you can forbid people to make money off of their work and only provide it for free. So, if I make money with advertising and it is somehow linked back to a taste&create with a copywrited photo, I could be screwed.
    I’m not to kean on it…

  28. Laurie Constantinoon 06 Feb 2008 at 1:52 pm

    Yes, please!

    But like Apu, I don’t agree that you in any way hold a copyright on my images and don’t believe you have the right to use other people’s images at all except to post a round-up of this event. I don’t mean that to be harsh in any way, it’s just that I believe all bloggers own the rights to their own images and don’t lose those rights by participating in another blogger’s event.

  38. abbyon 08 Feb 2008 at 7:20 pm

    i’m late – can you squeeze one more in this month?!? fingers crossed!

  39. [...] I really want to start another food blog. I have been wanting to for a while, because I want somewhere to write about all my other non-sushi cooking that I do. (Yes, I DO make food other than sushi! I promise! ) Plus, I kinda feel bad when I post about non-sushi stuff on here (like Taste and Create and other events that I have been considering doing) so I would rather put that kind of stuff in a general food blog. I guess the only thing that’s stopping me is that I’m not sure if I would have the time, and I don’t know if people would read it. Would you guys read it? Or would it just be one more food blog in a sea of too many? I promise I won’t be upset if you tell me you wouldn’t read it! [...]
