Other people's food

Thing is you see that I collect cookbooks like other people collect…whatever they collect. Point is I had enough trouble keeping up with my reading before I started reading blogs. These are things that have caught my eye of late…

Things I have made that are very, very good:

Rosa’s cauliflower soup. Rosa’s suggestions for garnishes are absolutely wonderful. The apple and vanilla - yum.

Another Outspoken Female’s vegan meal of pumpkin, coriander and chickpeas. The dressing is the best, creamiest, non-dairy thing I’ve tasted in a long, long while.

Susan’s cauliflower ragout.

Things I cannot wait to have the time to cook:

These pita chips, made with Turkish bread. Myriam – yum!

Kathryn’s beetroot curry – can’t wait to try this as a way of taming all that sweetness.

Johanna’s pierogi – never made them, but really, really want to now.

This beautiful salad from Vegan Yum Yum.

Almost everything (bar, of course, the meat) from Ceviz’s wonderful blog about Turkish food. These look incredible and so do these.

This beautiful quinoa soup from Lisa.

This incredible granola.

And this cake from Cindy at ‘Where’s the Beef?’


And lots more too. So much food...so little time.

I am having a similar problem - my file of other blogs' recipes to try has far outstripped my list of recipes actually cooked and blogged by me! As problems go, it's a pleasant one to have. :-)

I can now confirm that the chai cake maintains its taste and texture post-freezer: I popped a piece under the grill this morning and enjoyed it with a banana on the side.

Often wonder when it will all stop Cindy...probably never. Excellent news that the cake goes from freezer to toaster so well!

So glad you loved the cauliflower soup, though I must give full credit to chef Daniel Rose for the recipe and garnishes. It is such a flexible soup though, I'm sure I'll be coming up with many more garnishes of my own!

thanks for your link to the pierogi - I have some in the freezer that I hope will cook up well - a freezer full of emergency rations, a computer full of great blogging recipes and a couple of shelves of cookbooks - can we ever go hungry with such abundance - love your list - more recipes to dip into!

I know what you mean Lucy. I think most of us food bloggers have the same problem :) so many dishes to try, so little time :)

Thanks for including mine iny your beautiful list of recipes. I'm off to investigate all the blogs now - most of which I haven't come across. Excellent distraction for a cold and rainy Friday.

Susan said...

Thanks, Lucy, for putting my ragu in such good company. I'm becoming somewhat of a recipe pack rat myself. I did purchase the fixings for your mushroom gyoza, so I really am starting to chip away at the list.

Lucy said...

Rosa, I wouldn't have found it without you...

Johanna - it's enough to drive you mad at times. Can't wait to make them.

And then Cynthia, just after I had written this, I saw your eggs. Another one for the list...

Kathryn - I love your food, and your knowledge. Have bought some more beetroot to give this a go over the weekend. Thanks.

Susan, you are very welcome. Such beautiful and subtle spicing.

I think it is wonderful to acknowledge these people and their recipes! My problem is I keep collecting, but I have yet to make one someone else did - although the time has come! But I really enjoyed reading this!

Glad you liked the pumpkin dish - the sauce is good on almost anything savoury!
