We had a great turn-out for February's Whip Up Something New edition. Some of you got very busy and there were lots of great sounding recipes. As someone pointed out--this challenge really isn't doing any favors for shrinking our recipe stacks, but...! ;)
February's Participants and Recipes:
My friend Stephanie shared a recipe for Bruschetta with Sauteed Mushrooms, which in the comments she noted she made into a brunchy meal with tomatoes and spinach.
Elise got busy with several recipes: Cinnamon-Buttermilk Muffins, White Chili, Baked Potato Soup, and Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp.
Gnoe at Graasland shared a variety of different recipes: Pumpkin-Coconut Soup, Indian dinner, Quinoa Chili with Kale and Cashews, Marvellous Mayonnaise, Yaki-Gyoza, and Japanese Sesame-crusted Rice Patties.
Bev from Funny the World shared a delicious sounding Italian Wedding Soup recipe.
Cutest Lil Bookworm from Kisha's Masala whipped up a Mayan Omelet with Chorizo Sausage.
Uniflame at She Likes Bento shared several Japanese inspired dishes: Japanese Potato-Macaroni Salad, Inside out Salmon Onigiri, Teriyaki Burgers, Tomato-Tortellini Soup, and Pesto Muffins.
Margot at Joyfully Retired made some Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels that smell delicious (I could smell them through the computer, I swear).
Michelle from My Favorite Time of Day tried her husband's grandmother's Sugar Cookies.
Joanna from It's All About Me tested out a traditional Polish Carnival tradition: a Faworki recipe with a bonus tip for making meringue.
Kristina from Kristina's Favorites made a very yummy looking Garbage Plate.
JoAnn from Lakeside Kitchen shared a recipe for Stuffed Flank Steak with Apple, Feta, and Almonds.
Kristi from Kristi Loves Books tried out a new Macaroni and Cheese recipe.
Christina from Reading Thru the Night whipped up a new Chicken Cacciatore recipe with pasta.
And I made a delicious Turkish Beef Stew recipe that's been sitting in my stash for over three years.
This month I noted I'd be giving away a small prize to one of the participants. Out of the thirteen participants (not including myself), Random.org selected Kristi as the winner! Just a few little things for the kitchen--ladybug kitchen timer, cookie scoop, cookie cutters, and a recipe organizer.
Next month my cousin Elise will be hosting the link-ups, so be sure to pop over once you have a new recipe! Be sure to bookmark Joanna's Introductory Post to see past months' participants/recipes as well as current hosting.
