Welcome to the February edition of Whip Up Something New! My name is Trish and I’ll be your hostess (duh). Get out your untried recipes and start cooking!

How to play along:
1. Find an untried recipe from your stash (if you don’t have a stash, consider yourself better organized than me and just use any new-to-you recipe).
2. Cook, create, make, or bake your new recipe
3. Post about how your recipe turned out
4. Link below and hop around to see everyone else’s creation
5. Anyone can join! The more the merrier.

If you don’t have a blog and would like to participate, please contact me for guest posting opportunities. I’m not sure if Facebook allows “blogging” options, but that might be another possibility.

Deadline to submit recipes for February will be the 28th of the month.  At the end of the month I’ll round up all the links and create a summary post of all your creations.

Please link to your specific recipe post using the following format:
Your Name: Trish (Coconut Cake)
Your URL: http://www.lovelaughterinsanity.com/2011/01/coconut-cake-barefoot-contessas-recipe.html

#Mustworkonbeingmoreconcise.  There will be a prize this month!!  Prize is to be determined (I’ll blame inclement weather as I’m currently iced in at home), but the giveaway will be available to any participant.  The winner will be chosen at random.

Now, grab a button and get cooking!

Each month Whip Up Something New will be hosted on a different blog. Please check out Joanna’s introductory post to sign up to host a month or to find out who will be hosting the next month.

I also wanted to draw your attention to another cooking meme called Weekend Cooking hosted by Beth Fish Reads.  She writes: “Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend.”

Can’t wait to see what you all whip up!

  1. Huh. I was just thinking this morning that I should cook something from my recipe box or throw out some of the cards. But I have some readng of Joyce to do first.

  2. What a great idea on a snow day, Trish! Just this morning, I made bruschetta with sauteed mushrooms from my fave Cooking Channel show, Extra Virgin. I added truffle salt and a little truffle oil because I’m obsessed with truffles! I made it breakfasty with a spinach, mushroom and bacon frittata (turned scramble!) on the side. Yum. Happy cooking everyone!

  3. hmm this is just the kind of mini-challenge that I need to put some more variety in my cooking. I knew there was a reason I asked for feedback on twitter aka my food blog! I have a hard time keeping it up but this kind of challenge sounds like fun.

  4. Yay! I have a couple of posts about yummy food I made in the past couple of days, but can’t get myself to put them together. Soon though!!

  5. I’ve got big cooking/baking plans for February (Valentine’s Day!), but just posted my first recipe for the month. :)

  6. *Care – Could you read Joyce whilst whipping up something new? ;) It’s a perpetual challenge (though hosting site changes), so join in any time!

    *Michelle – I’m going to ignore your comment. :P Yes, I realize the conundrum but I’m ignoring it! Ha!

    *Stephanie – Oh that bruschetta sounds wonderful! Hope you’re staying warm, love.

    *Rebecca Reid – I hope you’ll join us–if not this month than just sometime.

    *Joanna – Can’t wait to see what you’ve put together! I’m snowed in today so I might sneak in some baking as well to warm up.

    *Elise – You are on a roll! I can’t believe all the cooking you’ve been doing lately.

    *Gnoegnoe – So glad you’re joining us! :)

    *Bev Sykes – Can’t wait to see what soup you’ve tested out–we love soup in our house.

    *Uniflame – Thanks for joinig us! Look forward to seeing what you whip up.

  7. Today I had added another recipe (link) to my virtual stash but decided I should try it right away. So I had quinoa for the first time in my life! It was pretty good; I especially liked the lemony taste of the dish. Yay for whip up something new! :)

  8. @Stephanie: I haven’t found a way to comment on your post but wanted to share that I’m going to try the bruschettas for lunch *now*!

  9. Oops, I apologize for the double post, I forgot to add the recipe title. This challenge is so much fun. This is the third cooking challenge I’ve joined this year and it’s definitely been keeping me on track with making new recipes and actually utilizing my cookbooks.

  10. I like this challenge of trying something new at least once a month. It’s also been fun to see what others are coming up with.

    By the way – I volunteered to host a month but haven’t heard anything. Any idea what month is mine?

  11. Just posted my link for Flank Steak stuffed with apple, feta, and almonds. It was made in the crock pot… delicious!

  12. I’ve made a wrap-up post with some more of the recipes I tried this month. I already entered the URL into Mr. Linky but the post will only go up tomorrow morning at 10:00 GMT+1.

    February was a FAB month!
