Serving Up Salads!

 

Salads are so very versatile!  They can take center stage as a colorful and gorgeous main course, shine on the side as a light side dish, or whet your appetite before the main arrives.  Come to think of it.....salad can even be made into dessert!!!

Who knew Serving Up Salads was so much fun?

Grab those cookbooks, or look online, and choose any Nigel Slater recipe that gets you Serving Up Salads!  Please make and post your dish by Sunday, August 3rd.

Off The Spice Rack

IHCC Spices Collage

This week we're diving into the spice rack ... Choosing Nigel Slater recipes that use your favourite spice or spices.  Spices come in a huge variety - those which bring warmth, sweetness, earthiness, woodsiness, and even mind-blowing heat.  They add complexity of flavour to dishes and evoke memories of meals and places past.
So get those cookbooks out or look at any of the appropriate online sources, choose any Nigel Slater recipe for a dish that's Off The Spice Rack, and post your dish by Sunday 27 July.

Please remember to link a thumbnail image below, and leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your post.
