Lately I have cooked a lot of recipes shared by fellow bloggers. I find if a recipe has been tested in real kitchen and someone has made the effort to share it on their blog, it is normally a winner. Today I am sharing some food, links and some good blog vibes.
Firstly, beetroot pasta made with my home grown beetroot. I served this exactly as Katrina at The Other Crumb suggested with goats curd and candied walnuts. It was delicious and felt so wholesome and earthy.
With the leaves from the beetroot mentioned above I made this cheesy-green-garden-bread thanks to Kate at Foxs Lane . As with the pasta, this felt wholesome and earthy and tasted amazing warm from the oven. I also loved using the whole beetroot from top to tail with nothing wasted.
Sourdough pancakes anyone? Thank you Mel at Crunchy Tiger for sharing this little piece of cooking wisdom. Anyone who bakes sourdough knows there is a certain amount of waste every time you feed the starters. The chooks at our place love excess starter but I am happy to have discovered another way to use those precious drops that I have worked so hard to establish.
I continue to be amazed at the generosity and good energy circulating in the blogging world. On Saturday morning as I collected our mail I discovered the most wonderful surprise. Two packets of vegetable seeds sent from my friend Jodie at Jelly Wares . Each contained a perfect hand written note and detailed planting information. Thank you Jodie...you made my weekend.
Do you cook from blogs?
Do you feel the good vibes?
Happy school holidays for those who are almost there!
