First up, over at Aussie Wife, Amanda has a recipe for Pasta with tomato, basil and chevre sauce. How can you go wrong with two cloves of freshly minced garlic?
David Gillies posts a recipe for fried pork wontons at Daily Pundit. I'm definitely making them soon.
This recipe over at In the Headlights is quite a mouthful: Chicken-noodle-bacon-um-potato-onion soup. In addition to being a winning Scrabble word, it looks mighty tasty. Be sure to thank Riannan when you make it.
The instructions that CalTech Girl lists with her recipe for Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon includes directions for cooking on the grill. Sure, you can cook them in the oven, too, but why would you?
Speaking of grilling, everyone needs a recipe for good homemade barbecue sauce, and Grill Maestro helps out with his recipe for Really Cheap Coca Cola BBQ Sauce. I'm still not certain where I can find a 20 cent can of Coke, though. I must shop at the wrong stores.
The next recipe comes from a blog down under, Keewee's Corner. Jennifer's recipe for Chicken Chow Bake looks both easy and delicious, two things that appeal to me.
Muse at Me-ander presents for your inspection her variation of a recipe for a traditional Kewish food, In the Kishkes. It looks like it would go great with some latkas. Muse also offers up a recipe for Diet Killer Crumble. Like I need more diet-killing recipes.
Kim at Life in a shoe is this first entry this week that includes both an a entree AND a dessert. Go check out Mexican Chicken Chowder w/Peach Cobbler. What's that you say? It's a soup and not an entree? Good chowder IS a meal. So give it a try.
My entry this week is a recipe for Chili Soup, which I think that you'll enjoy.
Taleena of Sun Comprehending Glass gets us off on the right sweet tooth foot with her recipe for Strawberry Tarts and Clotted Cream. Here's where I do my best Homer Simpson impression: ::drool::. Hey, I didn't say that it was a GOOD impression.
I hope that you enjoyed this week's collection of recipes from around the blogosphere. Be sure to visit Carnival #79 next week, hosted at The Ministry of Minor Perfidy. And if you're interested in hosting the COTR, send an email to Recipe (dot) Carnival (at) Gmail (dot) com and be sure to include the word "host" in the subject line.
