This is what we came up with this month:
Dana from Dulcedo blogged about Seduction Meals’ Lobster & Corn Chowder. Dana says â€œThis 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!â€
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!”
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!”
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.”
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.”
Laurie from Mediterranean Cooking in Alaska blogged about Rolling in Dough’s Spicy Squash Soup. Laurie says “Chelsea Greighâ€™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.”
Yes, I realize I have 2 partners.Â Since we were an odd number and I want to play too, I took 2 partners.
