Exotic Destinations

Anywhere but here.
Ever get the feeling that you would be so much happier somewhere else? Like when the frost covers your window, the dogs hide from the howling wind, cold creeps into your fingers, brain, bones?

Or maybe it is just that your house is too crowded, no room to think, people at every turn....

We all dream of going to a far off land, as much to discover new adventures as to escape the same ole' same ole'.

I can't guarantee that these exotic destinations will free you from what ails you, but it sure is nice to think about the great escape. New lands, new people, new foods.

Find any of Nigella Lawson's recipes that you feel suits this week's theme, either in her cookbooks or online, cook it and make sure you post it by January 17th. And of course don't forget to link up with Mr. Linky so that everyone can find and see your dish.

So come travel to Exotic Destinations with us, wish you were here!

Link your I Heart Cooking Clubs post of the week's permalink with Mr. Linky, below, so we can all see your fabulous cooking club creation! Please leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

Anywhere but where you are? We hear you. Can't wait to travel with you!
In the mean time, have you had a chance to see all the delectable Resolutions posts yet?

What a wonderful post that is filled with so many beautiful pictures :D I've got my computer back up and running again and will have fun thinking of a post for this week's theme!

Great post! I am having such a hard time with this cooking challenge! I can never get my stuff made in time. I made her pot pie to go with something and by the time I'd posted it, you were already on another theme!

Tina said...

I love this one! I think I'll go for the crab salad...that might make me think of the tropics more. And that is where I'd love to be now!

Teresa said...

Wow! I could use an exotic getaway right now. Especially since they are forecasting more snow and colder temps! An added bonus -- I can make something out of the new Nigella cookbook I got for Christmas and haven't used yet! :-)

NKP said...

Yay for new Nigella cookbooks! Great to have you cooking with us, Teresa!

Deb in Hawaii said...

Welcome Teresa!

Just "journeyed" to the Middle East and posted my Aromatic Lamb Meatballs and (Nutty) Couscous. Mmm...both were delicious!
