Getting Back to Blog of the Week

I have been very remiss of late and have not been adding the blog of the week as often as I should. So in an attempt to rectify this situation I decided to start by dropping in on one of my many favorite sites Months of Edible Celebrations.  Louise gives so much interesting information and past history about recipes that I always become totally absorbed by what I am reading and time passes all to quickly.

If you are ever stuck for an idea on what to prepare for a particular celebration, then Months of Edible Celebrations will certainly give you great recipe ideas. It seems there is a celebration on almost every day of the year.

While checking out whats new on Months of Edible Celebrations this morning, I came across a recipe the I haven’t made for many years, it used to be a favorite of my friends and family – Baked Alaska.  We knew it as Bombe Alaska but the principle is the same.  Although a cake base is generally used, when I was at school (seems like a hundred years ago) we were taught to place the ice cream on pineapple rings which also makes for a tasty dessert.

The recipe is courtesy of the Millennium Hotel, Anchorage, and my thanks to Louise for mentioning it.  I have to say it brought back some very pleasant memories.

Blog of the Week – Months of Edible Celebrations

Months of Edible CelebrationsThis week I have a real treat for you.

 Our blog of the week is

 Months of Edible Celebrations

This blog by Louise is  a exactly what the title says, edible celebrations by month.

I thought this title was intriguing and  I was totally sucked in (no pun intended) when the first story I came across was called ‘Nibbling my way to Count Dracula’s’.

The tale of Dracula and Transylvania is interspersed with recipes such as Chicken Paprikash and Oszre Valo Ecetagy Keszitese (a wine vinegar for Autum). 

Louise tells us what the celebration days are for each month,  and then she gives us a beautiful narrative along with recipes to cook for the day.

And just as I finished reading about United Nations day via Argentina which includes a recipe for Humita Mendocina – a tasty creamy corn pudding; up pops a post all about pumpkin days, just in time for Halloween.

I love this blog.  Louise has included  lots and lots of great reading,  she keeps you up to date with all the celebration days that you may like to cook for and there are many excellent recipes included.

Thoroughly recommend that you visit Months of Edible Celebrations, I just know you will end up like I do, totally engrossed in the stories.  A worthwhile way to take some time out for yourself.
