Happy Monday my friends! Before you start grumbling under your breath about there being no such thing as a happy Monday, prepare yourself. Grab a cup of coffee and spend the next few minutes at work (or at home) in the sweetest form of escapism that exists. For the next few minutes, I invite you to dive into the sweet and delicious compilation of treats that have been gathered on two wonderful sites.
The first party is taking place over at Steph’s Bite by Bite blog. At 7am this morning, the auction opened for bidding on all of the baked goods that were donated for Steph’s bake sale. Her Team in Training is working to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It is such an important cause and one that is very dear to me. Please run (not walk!) yourself over to her site and consider bidding on those delicious treats!
The second party is being hosted by Nancy over at Spicie Foodie. The Your Best Recipe roundup is a collection of dishes that participating bloggers have contributed. Each month, we get to pick our favorite dish that we made and share it with the awesome community of readers on her blog.
Come on, isn’t this a great way to start a new week? You get to contribute to a great cause and drool over a collection of delicious recipes! Can us food blog readers ask for more on a Monday morning? I think not!
The last thing I wanted to share with you is my *happy dance*! On Saturday afternoon, I received in the mail a treat that I had been hoping for ever since she announced it’s release. It’s Nancy’s cookbook! I can’t wait to try the different recipes and drool over the phenomenal photography on each page.
I have a complaint to make. It is of utmost importance and needs to be brought to somebody’s attention immediately.
WHERE HAS NOVEMBER GONE!?
Time needs to slow down just a bit. That being said, here we are at the end of November and you know what that means! It’s time for YOUR BEST RECIPE! As busy as I think this month has been for me, I can’t imagine how crazy it has been for the beautiful hostess of this recipe roundup. In case you haven’t heard, Nancy announced the release of her first cookbook (shameless plug: you can find it on amazon… and yes, I want a copy for Reyes… hint, hint mama… nudge, nudge pelirojo) that is filled with her phenomenal photography and delicious recipes. It’s been really neat to see this project unfold.
With all of these things in play, Nancy still managed to find time to host this fun project. I’ve been exposed to some great bloggers through this effort and it has been so much fun to see the types of recipes people submit from across the globe. So without further ado, I invite you to click on the badge below to head over to SpicieFoodie.com and see this month’s delicious collection of recipes!
Ladies and Gentlemen! It is with great excitement that I present to you my submission for this month’s “Your Best Recipe!”
This roundup is Nancy’s (from Spicie Foodie) brain child and was created to collect the most delicious recipes contributed from foodies all around the world. Each month she will post the submissions on her site so that we can all enjoy each other’s favorite recipes. It is such a wonderful idea, and such a great way to be exposed to so many talented cooks/bloggers out there. (It’s also a daunting reminder of how much I have yet to learn!)
