Soups, Salads, Dips, & Savory Recipes

Last week I posted about the Delicious Desserts and although I naturally gravitate to sweet over savory, it’s not fair to neglect savory in my weekly roundup of great food and recipes I’ve seen in the sphere.  Hopefully there’s something for everyone here: Soup, Salads, Dips, Savory Fare

Enjoy!

Jenna’s Coconut Curried Sweet Potato Soup

 

Leanne’s Light Quinoa and Avocado Tabbouleh Verrines

White On Rice’s Fried Minted Artichokes

 

Brown Eyed Bakers’ Classic Egg Salad

 

Katie’s Homemade Mustard

 

Marla’s Sun Dried Tomato Hummus with Crispy Chips

 

Chelsey’s Vegan Carrot Lentil Burgers

 

Paula’s Spaghetti con Olive e Limone {Spaghetti with Olives and Lemon}

 

A Cozy Kitchen’s Coconut Curry Fried Rice

 

Gena’s Sunshine Salad with Pineapple Ginger Dressing

Great Reads of the Week:

Janetha’s Taking the Party Out of the Girl

Kailey’s Where It Takes Us

From my last post about Just Noochy & Food Trivia, I had no idea that my little mention that I had learned that Oreos were vegan would cause as many comments as it did.  I agree, they are filled with chemicals but many of you seem to like them anyway.  It’s okay.  I do, too.

Glad to know many of you love your nooch as much as I do.  Glad you liked my nooch recipes and yes, order it online as I suggested to save money.

Questions:

1. Have you seen, made, or wanted to make any really awesome looking recipes from the blogosphere recently?

Do tell!

2. Weekend plans?

Nothing other than what I mentioned already:  Working, working out, taking care of Skylar, carrying on, business as usual, and possibly the farmer’s market on Sunday morning.  If I can wake up in time.

I am going to enjoy the wonderful weather we’re having.  80F and sunny, and the flowers are alive.  Yes, I will rub it in.  It’s why I pay through the nose to live here and don’t mind.


The hibiscus I saw on my running path today made me go back with my camera and snap a few pictures.

Enjoy your weekend!

    Awesome recipe round-up! It’s true; while I “recipe surf” I’m more easily drawn to sweet recipes…but it’s usually the savory ones that I end up actually making! Maybe because I’m more picky about my sweet flavor combos, but love finding new flavor combos for savory?
    I saw these orange fig muffins on the artsy kitchen the other day: http://theartsykitchen.com/2011/04/14/orange-fig-muffins/ they’ve got me drooling!

    I want to make damn near everything I see on blogs, LOL. I need more hours and meals in a day! :)

    Making homemade mustard in on my to-make list! I have like a pound of mustard powder sitting on the shelf for like 6 months now with that good intention, haha.

    Yum, everything looks so good… but if I had to chose one, it would probably be that hummus. What beautiful pictures!
    I’m finally getting around to making black bean brownies today. I’ve been wanting to make them for months, but just haven’t had the time… until now! I can’t wait.

    Love this round-up! There are so many tasty looking eats everywhere. I’ve started to print them all off since otherwise I loose track of where I see everything! My latest creation was a spinoff from the Quinoa Protein Bowl over at Choosing Raw.

    Weekend plans-sadly today is rainy here in Ohio but I won’t let that get to me…it is my Birthday! Some yoga this morning and then family celebrations tonight!

    Wow, so many great recipes here. Especially the artichokes, hummus, mustard, Gena’s dressing, and yum! Yeah, I’m a fan of desserts, but focus on more savory dishes over the week.

    1. Yes, too many to list and that considering my limited blog reading this this week!
    2. Hopefully getting in a little gardening, asparagus fest, working out and shopping.

    I love the recipe roundup — you listed plenty of blogs that I don’t read so I never would have seen those pictures!

    I have a list somewhere of some recipes I want to try — honestly the only one I can think of right now is a PB bread from Eat Live Run!

    Have a nice weekend Averie!

    I totally want to make Angela’s back on track salad. It looks sooo delicious! I can’t wait until the farmer’s market starts up near me. I’ve been waiting for forever! But I don’t think they start until May. Bummer!

    I am super excited for my weekend plans! About to go pick up one of nieces and one of my nephews to hang out with for the day. They are 18 month old twins and I love them to pieces!

    I want to make everything! But the fried artichokes?!? Genius. I love artichokes, but I am too lazy and scared to make them from fresh. That looks so good though. I mean, a fried veggie can’t be bad, right?

    Thanks for the shout-out!

    I’m thinking a lot about roasted prawns in a creamy parsley sauce I’ve seen on a blog lately. And I also want to try out a very simple and very awesome coconut macaroon recipe. :)

    This is actually the last recipe I made from a blog. I’m woefully behind on my blog reading, obviously! (It was delicious!) http://kblog.lunchboxbunch.com/2010/03/asian-noodle-salad-with-sticky-ginger.html

    thanks for the comment! i will not give up on the nuggets, when i called (yes, i called trader joe’s), they said it was a manufacturer issues, so as soon as they find a new source they’ll make them again.

    i think my view would be much different if i lived in san diego. i live in loma linda, in the heart of the IE, aka pretty much the worst part of california :). while i do like it in jan-feb, i don’t like running my airconditioner from april onward. that’s funny you’re from minnesota, my boyfriend is from there and i’m from ohio….so I’ll be moving back to wisconsin for internal medicine residency in a few months, then he’ll join me next year when he’s done with his residency out here. what can i say, we’re both loyal midwesterners and want to be closer to home (plus avoid paying the CA cost of living! :) )

    i just got a vitamix for my birthday! can’t wait to try some of your recipes once it arrives this week.

      have fun with your Vita! and yes, san diego is the creme de la creme of CA, well, IMO it is :) That, and the wine country and San Fran. But I like the weather down here better.

      Good luck w/ the move back to WI. One of my closest bloggie friends just finished her PhD and is moving back to WI this summer! She’s from there and ironically is ending up back there.

    Isn’t photography awesome?? And food + photography = bliss. I need a better camera, though.

    I have a “recipes to try” list a mile long. We have a few favorites, but other than that we have something new nearly all the time.

    The flower pics are gorgeous. My weekend plans are to stay warm lol. It’s back down in the 40s! I do think it would be worth a lot to live somewhere warm and pleasant!

    There are so many great recipes around the blogosphere it’s hard to know where to start! I recently made ravioli with wonton wrappers and that turned out really well.
    As for weekend plans I took my son to his first baseball practice this morning, then late we went for dinner at a friend’s house. Tomorrow I don’t have much planned, just housework and errands, and I might make hot cross buns if I have time.
    Nice blog by the way! I can’t wait to read more.

      Well your post struck a chord with me…the pressure to keep up, to be better, have more views, to churn out post after post, the comparisons that inevitably happen…I love you for blogging about what you want to blog about and not getting too wrapped up in the rat race!
