Our Growing Edge January 2016 Intro

Hello everyone. It’s been weeks since my last blog. I’m still technically on holiday. The Koala and I got back from holiday a few days ago where we had a magic 10 days away with friends. I had grand plans of blogging and cooking up a storm over the holidays but turns out I just really needed to chill. I’m not going to apologise for my absence.

With a new year, comes a new year of Our Growing Edge. New Year resolutions, healthy eating plans, adventurous and ambitions intentions for the kitchen. I’m sure most of you have ideas you’re itching to try this month for Our Growing Edge.

I haven’t written my NY resolutions yet. I guess I’ve been pre-occupied this season, but I do hope to come up with some intentions for 2016 in the coming week. I’ve enjoyed reading your resolutions. Bucket lists and resolutions are a great way to focus ourselves and also to review the year that has just gone. It’s now 3 years since I started Our Growing Edge. With over 600 entries from all around the world, I never envisaged this adventure I started to inspire other food bloggers would grow to this.

This month is hosted by Jess from Little Girl Story.


Calls for contributors to share their cooking, any original recipe that they created from anything random they came across in their fridge or supermarket shelves. In short, just last minute meals, something they throw together with whatever ingredients available.

We all have bucket lists. Whether they’re written down somewhere or kept in our heads and hearts.

Our Growing Edge is the part of us that is still learning and experimenting. It’s the part that you regularly grow and improve, be it from real passion or a conscious effort. This blogging monthly event aims to connect and inspire us to try new things and to compile a monthly snapshot of what food bloggers are getting up to. If you have a blog and are planning to write about a new food related experience, join us!

More info on the event can be found here.

Some ideas you could try this month:

  • Make up a recipe using only what is currently in your fridge/pantry
  • Use up a forgotten ingredient from the back of your pantry
  • Cook something using an ingredient you have never cooked with before
  • Use a familiar ingredient in an unexpected way
  • Combine two flavours together to make something new
  • Recreate a dish you have eaten before but with a unique tweak

December 2015 round up

Below are some of the submissions from Decembers edition of Our Growing Edge. Jazzmine from Dash of Jazz is the host and the round up can be viewed here.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.
