WHB #97:  The Roundup - Part 2

August 30th, 2007

Sequels are rarely as good as the original. This little series, however, is guaranteed not to progress to a trilogy; this second part is the last you’ll see, guaranteed. It’s also every bit as good as the first one. Welcome to Weekend Herb Blogging 97: The Roundup - Part 2.

One of the perks of hosting WHB is that you get to put your own recipe above everyone else’s. I’ve taken advantage of that perk with my own Strawberry and Champagne Jam, but let me tell you - the rest of the recipes below blow this one out of the water. Keep reading!

Here’s a treat - a perfectly simple dish of roasted tomatoes with mozzarella and herb oil from Anh’s Food Blog (aka Food Lover’s Journey). This is a classic combination of flavours that never fails.

This one is one I just love. An effective cup of Ginger Cinnamon Tea courtesy of Sherra at Our Taste of Life. So many food blogs seem to entirely forget about drinks that it’s surprisingly refreshing when someone remembers. Oh, and I just love tea - but then I am British, after all!

There seems to be a great theme this month (which is totally coincidence) of simple yet delicious dishes which use nothing more than a few ingredients, simply prepared. That’s what makes for such great food! This one is no exception, with a fantastic Eggplant Gratin (hey, that’s Aubergine in English!).

I say this a lot, but lamb is my favourite meat. Pam, therefore, steals my heart (which lets face it, is very easy to steal with the right food) with her Patagonian Lamb with Balsamic Roast Veggie Salad.

Here’s a fantastic blog presenting us with a dish which fits the pattern I mentioned a couple of posts above. Fellow 9Rules member Genie from The Inadvertent Gardener has cooked up some Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes over Polenta. Yum!

I love Weekend Herb Blogging. I don’t think there’s another food blogging event which has so many familiar faces joining up so regularly with so many great dishes - although feel free to prove me wrong! Here’s one of those faces, Chris from Mele Cotte with an Open Faced Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich.

Look at this picture and tell me you’re not interested in it. You can’t, can you? Even if I told you it was a Zucchini & Pistachio Spice Cake with Lime Frosting by Anna at Morsels & Musings, would that put you off? Nah, didn’t think so. Tuck in!

Sher at What Did You Eat? couldn’t remember if she’d remembered to send me her entry for Weekend Herb Blogging or not. No fear, I have it right here - a Meatless Tamale Pie of the highest order.

Take a look at the picture. Pretty, strange vegetable looking for warm stomach for extended stay. Go and take a look at Haalo from Cook (almost) Anything at Least Once ’s funky looking Romanesco Frittata

Katie from Thyme For Cooking has made us some tasty Green Beans with Prosciutto and Garlic Chips. Who’s heading to her place with me?

Now this one’s interesting. A Scented Rose Oil (from Astrid at Paulchen’s FoodBlog) just calls out to be tried. I have a large climbing rose in the garden (flowering for the second time this year, in fact) - do you think my Wife will notice if I go strip all the petals from it?

Virginie from Absolutely Green has for us a beautiful and seasonal Purple Salad with Lavender Aroma. This is a great recipe from a great multi-lingual blog. Remember, folks, cook seasonally and God will love you. Or something like that - just do it!

Almost finished (and I hope I haven’t missed any body!), and here’s a dish my Wife would kill for. She just loves Salmon, and this Cilantro Chilli Salmon is surely no exception. This one’s home caught by Katerina from Daily Unadventures in Cooking.

The grand finale (drumroll please)….A Fresh Herb Salsa with Chillies served atop of a fresh whole Sea Bream. There’s nothing more special than a whole and delicious fish. What a note to end on!

Hope you all enjoyed this weeks edition of Weekend Herb Blogging, and I hope to see you all again soon. Thanks again to everyone who submitted an entry - I only wish I got to taste them all!
