The last few days have been very hectic so it has taken me slightly longer than I hoped to put together the round up for Our Growing Edge, which I have had the pleasure of hosting this month. Our Growing Edge is a fantastic event designed to take you out of your cooking comfort zone in whatever way you choose, using a new ingredient, a new technique or even just making something you’ve always wanted to make but never quite got around to having a go at.
I love trying new things and each month I try to push myself in some way or another in the kitchen and love to find inspiration in the recipes other people make too. Our Growing Edge is the brainchild of Genie at Bunny Eats Design so do take a look if you’d like to enter next month.
The first entry, an Oreo Dirt Cake, came from Everyday Life of a Mother and Wife. How could anything with that name not be delicious?
My entry was next. After watching the Great British Bake Off I was inspired to make a 3d biscuit scene. My little girl loved our 5 Little Ducks Went Swimming One Day Biscuits.
We then had this delicious and easy sounding Mango and Chia Seed Pudding from Spicy, Quirky and Serendipitous.
This was followed by a rather unusual but delicious sounding apple and pumpkin crumble by Cook it Fit.
Jules at the Kiwi Diaries made this delightful lemon cake.
Caroline at Shrinking Single made these delicious Spicy New Orleans Sprimps using liquid smoke – something I’d love to try using one day.
Caitlin at Foraged Dish made a Curried Pork Stew with Apples and Collards – just perfect for this time of year.
Brynne at By: The Common Cook made lentils with yoghurt and basil for a tasty lunch.
Genie at Bunny Eats Design made Peking Duck for Busy People. Why get a takeaway if you can make something that looks this good?
Andre’s The Home Baker made this tempting Chocolate Mocha Chiffon Cake.
Audrey at Rice & Kai made one of the most beautiful cheesecakes I have ever seen decorated with edible flowers. Have a look at her Pineapple Cheesecake with Coconut and Flower Jelly.
Ksenia at Saffron and Honey contributed this lovely warming roasted tomato and carrot soup.
Chandler from the International Poor Chef School Project then linked up this fascinating post about how to make Moroccan Tea. It brought back lots of good holiday memories for me.
Denica at D’s Bistro made this pretty Pistachio Pavlova with Kiwis and Nectarines.
Finally Leah from Sharing the Love with Food made these lovely pillowy gnocchi in a green sauce with ham.
Thank you everyone for entering. Next month Our Growing Edge will be hosted by Jules at The Kiwi Diaries.
