Hurrah For Bloggers…and a Winner

May 24, 2010 at 1:49 am | Posted in Hurrah For Bloggers | 20 Comments

It’s time to showcase some of those great recipes I’ve found by reading  your  blogs.  Again, so many bookmarked, so little time. 🙂  Hurrah for bloggers and thank you for sharing your delicious and tempting offerings. It’s a great lineup…so let’s get started.

First of all, I found this Mexican style chicken burger over at MOTHER RIMMY’S. Kristi, this looked wonderful and I couldn’t resist giving it a try. Afterall, its list of ingredients was calling our names. You can see her original post for this recipe HERE. With a name like, Spicy Mexican Chicken And Avocado Burger…it automatically made its way to our table.  Thanks for this recipe Kristi…it is now in my database.

Stephanie over at PLAIN CHICKEN  is constantly tempting us with wonderful dishes and as soon as I saw her post for these sticky buns, I knew I had to give them a try. Good-gaaaREEF is this good. Stephanie, thanks so much for sharing this wonderful, melt in your mouth, ooey gooey goodness treat. Can’t wait for brunch guests to swoon over this one. For her original post take a look HERE. This is now in my database as Steph’s Over Night Sticky Buns.  Thank you my dear.

 How about Fried Goat Cheese on Bibb Lettuce with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing…let me repeat myself, “how about fried goat cheese on bibb lettuce with lemon poppyseed dressing”  I mean c’mon who can resist such a wonderful sounding salad. I made this the very night I saw it posted over at CINNAMON SPICE AND EVERYTHING NICE.   I have only one word for this…Fabulous!  To take a look at the original post and a great photo take a look HERE.  I served this with some Tequila Lime Shrimp skewers. YUM. Thank you for this Cinnamon Girl!

And last but not least, how about a Strawberry Pie?  Big tease Larry over at Big Dude’s Eclectic Ramblings has been waving torturous photos of a wonderful Strawberry Pie at us for over a week.  I made time to give it a try. I adore this Summery easy dessert. You can take a look at Larry’s original post here.  This is a traveling recipe making the trip from Mary’s blog DEEP SOUTH DISH, to LARRY’S BLOG in Smoky Mountains and finally to my Denver kitchen. This will be a great “go-to” dessert when company is scheduled for dinner.

Now for the winner of my cookbook 1st blogiversary give away. Using and assigning everyone a number…the resulting winner is Beren over at Roti-n-rice. Please send your snail mail address to lannisam at gmail dot com. I’ll get that Colorado cookbook in the mail.

Hurrah For Bloggers…a standing ovation…

Thanks For The Great Dishes

  1. Every time I visit a blog, I want to cook something new! So true…so much to do and so little time. All of these recipes have officially been added to my list. Thanks 😛

    • Joanne, you’re just the best. Thanks for the visit and the comment.

  2. Mmmmm… I think I need a week off to test drive each of these recipes. Great post!

    • Liz, I need about 10 years off to make all of the wonderful recipes I’ve bookmarked. Thanks for stopping by and the comment.

  3. Now I’m ready to try some of these – thanks for showing me some other blogs to visit. I also noticed that you’ve “done dough” – how was it? Did you make homemade pie crust? (so many questions) Great pictures and very nice post. Congrats to Beren on the cookbook.

    • I made Stephanie’s rolls with those frozen dinner rolls. Rhoades brand and very very good. I love those things. Yes, I made my own pie crust. I had all of that Crisco left over from the fried chicken. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by Vic

  4. No need to repeat, I got it the first time – Fried Goat Cheese on bibb Lettuce with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing? YUM.

    I make a very similar strawberry pie; it’s from the very first cookbook given to me, Better Homes and Gardens; circa…a long time ago. Mine doesn’t have 7-up or Jello but it’s a similar premise except that it uses some cooked strawberries for adding color and flavor to the sugar/cornstarch mixture that is poured over the berries. But my best addition? Over the years, my only complaint was a soggy bottom crust so I’ve found that mixing either cream cheese or mascarpone with a bit of cream and a little sugar til smooth and then spreading on the crust before filling with the berries is not just an updated flavor profile but handles that job for which it was intended!

  5. Thanks Lea Ann! I wish my picture of the chicken burger looked as good as yours. Maybe my new camera will improve my picture taking skills, but I have a feeling there’s more to it. 🙂

    • I actually thought the same thing about your photo, thought it was better! 🙂

  6. first the fried chicken , know this great round up…oh man eveything looks delish..congrats to the winner


  7. Aren’t those sticky buns insane ?!?! I am so glad you enjoyed them too!! I am going to have to make them this weekend now that you posted them. That strawberry pie looks delish too. So much for my diet!

    Congrats on one year!

    • Your photo was much better than mine. I think I was in too much of a hurry to eat them. 🙂

  8. These all have my mouth-watering! Those sticky buns look heavenly. Thanks again for making my salad and telling the world!

  9. Glad you made you a pie – I’ll quit tempting you now.

    • I’ll have to see that to believe it! 🙂

  10. You are quite the blog traveler, aren’t ya? Those dishes all look great!

    Congrats to Beren!

  11. There are too many recipes all over too many blogs. It’s hard to resist them all. Fried goat cheese is one to try!

    • I thought it sounded so good that I made it the very night I saw it. Loved that lemon poppy seed dressing.

  12. Such great recipes! I must say I love Mother Rimmy’s and Cinnamon Spice ad Everything Nice’s recipes. I will have to check out the other two. I am sure they have great recipes as well.

    Wow!!! I can’t believe I won! I am so excited!!!!! Thank you so much!
