Hosting: Our Growing Edge … Round-up!

3 Dec

our-growing-edge-badge And just like that, November was over. The Our Growing Edge crew made the most of the month though – it looks like everyone was busy in the kitchen! It’s possible that this is the highest number of entries that OGE has seen – it’s sure close, if not!

The thing that strikes me the most about OGE is the international nature of the bloggers and posts every month – New Zealand, United States (from California, South Dakota, to Boston, and more!), Australia, India, Argentina, Singapore, France, the Netherlands, and more. I have never heard of many of the dishes and ingredients used – it is a fun learning experience!

Let’s get to the round-up! You can see all of the entries on this page. There are sooo many that I am going to break the round-up into two posts. The second will be posted later this week. Enjoy!

1. The first entry came in from Dearest Sultana, who shared with us a Homemade Gumbo, and a discussion about making roux, which can be tricky business! I am starting my own “to-make” list NOW!

2. Have you heard of Salted Kouign Amann? I had not, but The Pig & Quill gives us a very detailed tutorial about this crispy sweet treat on her blog. Thanks, Em!

3. Hello, Autumn Cheese Beer Soup. I can’t wait to meet you. In my kitchen. With standard ingredients, this looks like a great recipe to whip up on a cold weekend, or snow day, without having to run out for a specialty item. YUM, Food on Demant!

4. Peppery Lacto Fermented Radishes: Totally new to me. Thanks for expanding our horizons, Om Nom Ally!

5., 6., 7., 8. Vessy’s Day was SUPER-prolific this month, with FOUR entries! Steamed Clams with White Wine, Hot Creamy Tomato Soup, Banana Peanut Butter Cookies, and Chicken Empanadas. They are eating well at Vessy’s house! Thanks for the delicious – looking contributions, Vessy.

9. Trampling Rose, THANK YOU for spending the time to make the gorgeous Rosettes and Krumkake for us to covet. And congratulations on your feature in South Dakota Magazine’s “Sweets for the Holidays” feature! That’s awesome – quite an accomplishment to be published in print!

10. Pumpkin Pie Mousse, and a ton of unique and creative photography, from Passionate about Baking. Read on!

11. Beef and Onion Stuffed Bell Peppers, exploring Paleo-friendly dishes and concepts, from Dish by Dish. Happy birthday, Felicia!

12. Urban Food Lover talks us through the journey of making Healthy Hassle-Free Home-made Granola for the first time. No matter what your tastes, you probably love some variation of granola. Try it out for yourself if you haven’t yet!

Check out the second half of the round-up here!

    Great round up. There’s something very comforting about these dishes. Like a feast that’s also a warm bear hug.
