The August round up for Our Growing Edge is live. Check it out here: http://sneaksandsweets.com/our-growing-edge-a-recipe-roundup A big thank you to Lindsey at Sneaks and Sweets for hosting this edition. The September link is live and Corina from Searching For Spice is this month’s host. Corina loves to use spice in her cooking and her love for Indian, Mexican, North African, Thai and Chinese food shows. As a busy mother of two, her recipes are simple to follow and unfussy. Corina is totally getting into baking at the moment so if you’re a little stuck on what to turn your growing edge to this month, why not try some baking?

Dana from I’ve Got Cake has posted her round up of Our Growing Edge April. Perhaps the most colourful commentary in Our Growing Edge history and you can check out out here. 16 submissions with huge contrasts. Coconut & Lemongrass Tofu Soup vs Seal Flipper Stew. Never seen before udon bundles vs nostalgic Pastafrola (quince jam pie from Argentina). April also saw many Easter and spring time dishes. So inspiring and drool-worthy! May’s edition of Our Growing Edge is now open and you can join us via the button below.
Medha from Mimi’s Mommy Blog has just posted the round up for last month’s Our Growing Edge. With 14 great entries this month, it was nice to see the synchronicity of food bloggers around the world. Check out her post here.
Alice over at Nom Nom Cat has posted up the round-up for Our Growing Edge October. View it here to see what foodies have been pushing themselves with last month.

Feast your eyes on the goodies over on Sweets and Brains. Thank you to our host Marnelli and to all those that joined Our Growing Edge. The dishes cooked and eaten look mouthwatering. A great range of baked goods, exotic recipes from blogger’s own cuisines, tasty healthy options and decadence. I look upon the round up like a delicious pot luck extravaganza.Can you imagine tasting all those in one sitting? A a girl can dream… Comfort foods and go-to recipes are fine, we all have them. Expanding your repertoire to extend to a larger variety of dishes, go-to recipes and even special occasion recipes are interesting and fun. There is something lovely about food cooked by foodies that push out of their own comfort zones. These dishes have all been coveted and marked worth attempting and failing for. Trying something new can be a bit scary but if you try new things every month, it becomes a normal part of your life. Failure is bound to happen but learning how to salvage something is a great skill …
A big thank you to Marija from Palachinka for her beautiful round up of Our Growing Edge August. What a delicious collection of new food adventures we had last month! It looks like the pages of an amazing foodie magazine. The calibre of entries this month was top notch! Check out Marija’s round up over here on Palachinka and if you also have a food blog, please join us in September’s edition. I’m still looking for a host for December and future editions so comment or email me if you are interested. Have a great (and delicious) weekend!
August 29 is officially More Herbs, Less Salt Day. I adore herbs and I wish I’d done a herb garden instead of our vegetable garden. I suppose it’s still not too late for that. I’ve grown rosemary, mint, coriander, basil, parsley, sage, tarragon and thyme. They’re all pretty sad looking at the moment, but hopefully this spring will give them magic beanstalk powers. My favourite herb is coriander and I can eat that stuff like spinach. The Koala loathes it though so I don’t cook with it but rather, dump it on top of my own plate as a garnish. Luckily it’s the kind of herb that works fine for that. What is your favourite herb? Are there any herbs you dislike? In honour of More Herbs, Less Salt Day, here are five of my favourite herb-filled recipes. All of these are particularly simple to prepare. Just click in the images below to be redirected to the recipes. Enjoy!
When a new person comes to visit, we notice them noticing our rabbit running loose indoors. We are accustomed to seeing a rabbit around the house. Tofu isn’t a prop, he’s a legitimate member of the household. Still, I always get a kick out of seeing other rabbits in other indoor settings. Especially beautifully styled homes or hanging out on beautiful furniture. When you have a beautifully designed room or piece of furniture, you need two other things. A rabbit and a talented photographer. For your viewing pleasure, I have collected these images from around the world, relating to bunnies with beautiful interiors or architecture. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have.
