Guest Host: Bookmarked Recipes

It is my pleasure to host this week's round up of Bookmarked Recipes. Bookmarked Recipes is a weekly roundup spearheaded by Ruth of Ruth's Kitchen Experiments. Currently in its 47th week, the roundup features recipes we've bookmarked from other sources (e.g., blogs, cookbooks, websites, etc.).

As always, this week's round up features some beautiful dishes.

First up is Tami's Kitchen Table Talk. She shares Spicy Orange Beef with Vegetables that she found on Family I think it's about time for another stirfry!

Maggie from Dog Hill Kitchen shares Dairy-Free TKOs (Tomas Keller Oreos), a recipe adapted from from Jumbo Empanadas' recipe for Baby TKOs. The original recipe comes from Thomas Keller in Essence of Chocolate. Looks like a knockout to me! (sorry...I couldn't resist the pun)

Next up is my Mamster's submission (I'm stealing Grace's name for her mom). Giz from Equal Opportunity Kitchen shows us the Baked Risotto with Asparagus, Spinach and Parmesan that she found from 3 Books in 1 - Appetizers, Party Food and Entertaining. What could be better than risotto that you don't have to stand over for 30 minutes?

Also from Equal Opportunity Kitchen, here are my Oatmeal Raisin Applesauce Cookies. Since we're all friends here, I'll be honest and say - they weren't the best cookie in the world. But, as far as healthier baked goods go, they're not bad. In case you're wondering what's up with the chocolate chips, I only had enough raisins for 50% of the cookies and used chocolate chips for the rest. Here's the original HubPages source for the recipe.

Ivy from Kopiaste shares the Falafel she made. The original recipe comes from Val at More than Burnt Toast. I loved reading Ivy's post about her experience at the market to find cilantro and chives - go check it out!

Also, check out the great work Galvy (my petname for Giz, Ivy and Val) is/are doing with BloggerAid to raise funds and awareness for world hunger.

Ben from What's Cooking shares a recipe for Whole-Wheat Quesadillas. The recipe comes from Ask Ben's tortillas are filled with cuitlacoche and flor de calabaza, two ingredients that remind Ben of the food he ate while growing up in Central Mexico. Looks delicious. I think I need to take a week long course in Mexican cooking from you.

Also, check out Ben's Homemade Food Event. It's definitely an event in which I would like to participate in the near future! Ben will be posting his roundup for this month's theme, Homemade Bread, shortly. Stay tuned for next month's theme!

Last, but not least, is the hostess with the mostess: Ruth from Ruth's Kitchen Experiments. Ruth shares a Buttermilk Chicken recipe from Nigella Express. There's something about that juice coming of the front-most chicken leg that is making me very hungry.

Thanks everyone for your submissions!!! It's always exciting to see what people have been making and recreating as well as meeting some new bloggers.

Next week’s round up will be hosted by Ivy from Kopiaste.

Thanks for the lovely roundup Psychgrad. Everything sounds delicious and why shouldn't it be. Who would bookmark a recipe if it wasn't (lol).

Great round up, some delicious dishes there. It makes dinner options easier: quesadillas or orange beef.

Thanks for your comment on the kidney foundation blog, and so happy to hear you were successful in obtaining a new kidney. My cousin, unfortunately is not a candidate for organ tranplant, so dialysis is her only option at this time.
