Carnival of Recipes is Here

UPDATE! Please be aware the oatmeal fried chicken recipe had the wrong amount of oatmeal initially! It was suppose to be 2 cups. It has been updated.

UPDATE! The submitters of the dueling Eggs Benedict recipes are each other's Significant Other

Please be aware I took liberty in stealing borrowing words right from the posts of the authors. And some of it is slightly changed. Sometimes I will admit it, other times I won't. ;-) Finally the Carnival of Recipes is ready for your eyes to feast upon and enjoy.

  1. Breakfast

  2. Lunch

  3. Appetizers / Salads

  4. HELP

  5. Drinks

  6. Dinner

  7. Desserts

*** Breakfast

Waffles. Not just any waffle, ANCIENT waffles. Gotta read it to find out. Must say they look delicious! Made my mouth water just reading the recipe. Thank you George from In The Interest of Me.

I'm stealing this line straight from the submission: "Dueling Eggs Benedict Recipes". I'll start with the 'Mock Hollandaise Sauce' from Nic at Shoes, Ships, and Sealing Wax. Now for the 'Real, will mess up your kitchen, Hollandaise Sauce' from Victor at Publius & Co.

Apple Streusel Muffins from ALa at blonde sagacity are definitely a sugar high for the morning. And watch out, there is a picture of these tasty breakfast (or dessert) treats that will make your mouth water when you see it.

*** Lunch

This could be dinner as well. What's that? This Focaccia Turkey Sandwich from Marsha at A Weight Lifted. Wow. Reading the recipe makes this sandwich sound so flavorful and fresh.

Since lunch is lacking, I'm putting this delectable Meatball Sub here. Taleena from Sun Comprehending Glass suggests to serve it with a cold beer. On these hot summer days, I thing it is an excellent suggestion!

*** Appetizers / Salads

Carrot salad for the person who needs something quick and tasty from Muse at me-ander. It's not only quick but EASY as well.

A work of art is right. Take a look at this appetizing yet beautiful Salade Niqoise from Mensa Barbie.

*** HELP

Yes, this is a special category for a special recipe. Punctilious at Like News but Tasty has requested help for The Secret to Gazpacho: A Work in Progress. Go check it out and give a helping hand.

*** Drinks

This was hard to place but I figured it would work good as ice for a drink. It is the Apricot Peachtea Delight from Christine at Morning Coffee, Afternoon Tea. Great for those really hot days.

Pina Colada Punch for those summertime get-togethers, backyard barbecues and hot days. Thanks CalTechGirl at Not Exactly Rocket Science for something to 'chill' us during the summer.

*** Dinner

Have a complete dinner with this Bacon wrapped stuffed Chicken with the corn and sweet potatoes from Virgil at the Redneck Gourmet.

Another chicken entree and it's perfect for those with kids - Oatmeal Fried Chicken Chunks! Actually this is good for anyone that likes chicken. We were lucky enough to get this from Jay at Accidental Verbosity.

Geeze, we must have a bunch of Chicken Geeks Bloggers. I must say I love Chicken and Dumplins and have it at least once a month. And here is a delightful Chicken & Dumplin recipe from David at Third World County.

Number 4. Yes, the 4th Chicken recipe has been sent. No meat and potatoes for this group so far. Yet, I can't wait to try the Chicken Marsala recipe Christina from Feisty Repartee sent. I love getting it at different restaurants but never had success at home. I think I will now.

YAAAA. Not a chicken entry. And straight from the entry a wonderful description: A no-cook sauce that makes a delicious, fun and easy summertime dish. Also very inviting to the tastebuds. Give this Organic Basil Pesto with Shrimp and Spaghetti from The Pragmatic Chef a try.

Then what happens, I find my Cheesy Chicken Recipe next in line. Give it a shot.

Tasty, filling and another Chicken recipe. The nice part is you can use left over grilled, or even buy a rotisserie, chicken to use. Chicken and Navy Bean Stew with Baby Spinach from Shawn Lea at Everything and Nothing is something to try.

Easy, Fast, and Appealing to most everyone's tastebuds. Here is a Turkey Rice Casserole from Punctilious at Like News but Tasty.

Not in the mood for long and involved slaving in the kitchen? Then give the Simple Pasta con Pesto from Anna at bunny? a try. Sounds like my kind of meal!

An inexpensive dinner doesn't mean it has to be horrible. This Plain Old Pasta is inexpensive yet delicious. Thanks to Bernadette from Booklore you have something simple and yummy.

Here is a tasty delight in this recipe for Chicken Enchilada Casserole from TheHeadGirl at The Common Room. Now I'll have another recipe to add to my "Mexican" set. Thanks!

A traditional Brazilian dish called Feijoada is given to us from Kris at Anywhere But Here. Never having a Brazilian dish, this sounds yummy! I love trying something new.

Want pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven taste at home? Give this Grilled Pizza recipe from The Glittering Eye a try.

This is my lucky week. Here is another international recipe that sounds enticing - Tandoori Chicken. Jeff from Trub. The sediment of life. was kind enough to send this in to me.

Smoked salmon and grilled meats make for a wonderful summer meal. Make sure you thank Hal at a geezer's corner when you go over to get these recipes.

My kind of recipe, easy and tasty. KeeWee from KeeWee's Corner sent in this Ham and Cheese Pie. I bet my kids love it!

*** Desserts

Kevin at Technogypsy has a recipe from Grandmother! It's Lemko Nut Cookies that sound scrumptious.

Here comes a pleasurable experience. Go try out these zenfully delicious smores at Memento Moron by Brian.

Cake. Yummy, Rich, Cake! Kentucky Butter Cake from Michele at Meanderings. I have all the ingredients. I hear this one calling my name this weekend.

Blueberries. Blueberries. Can't you just hear it calling to you? Well then you need to try this Blueberry Pudding Cake from Shawn Lea at Everything and Nothing. Looks easy and mouthwatering.

Sweet and International. Want to try something different? Give this Czech Kolace from Army Wife Toddler Mom. Definitely delectable.

This is for the dogs! Or in my household it would be for the dog and the kids. Really!! Here is a recipe for Birthday Bones from Sissy at And What Next. What a lucky dog, Kiki is.

Chocolate and cheesecake. This is my kind of recipe for dessert. And simple too. Inviting, divine, all come to mind when I read the Chocolate Cheesecake recipe from Owlish Mutterings.

Hold on to your hats... here comes two recipes that will make you gain weight just reading the ingredients. Cocoa - Spice Snackin' Cake and Reese's Brownies (Made From Scratch) from the Physics Geek. Block the door, I'm thinking of heading out and getting the one ingredient I don't have and make these up right now!

Last and certainly not least is Spotted Dick from tritical - the wheat / rye guy. Be sure to read it all and slice while hot and serve with a sweet sauce.

Is it the 48th Carnival? Oops, my bad, if it is.

Time flies, I guess.

Posted by: the pragmatic chef™ at July 15, 2005 04:54 PM

That was an amazing piece of work. I know how difficult it is.

Posted by: Sally at July 15, 2005 05:32 PM

Great job!
I'm going to try a few of these this weekend!

Posted by: Michele at July 15, 2005 05:47 PM

Thanks everyone. And J, I'll see what I can do to change the color. I doesn't look neon lime green to me but I'm sure it must to others.

Posted by: VW Bug at July 15, 2005 07:44 PM

Great job, VW! Lotsa great recipes this week. Yummm.

Posted by: Christine at July 15, 2005 08:01 PM

I'd just like to mention the submitters of the dueling Eggs Benedict recipes are each other's Significant Other.

Posted by: Victor at July 15, 2005 08:45 PM

I found a mistake in my oatmeal fried chicken recipe and have prominently corrected it. The amount of oatmeal was listed as 1 cup and should have been 2 cups. Doh!

If you've been there once, you may want to go back, or make a note of the corrected measure noted in this comment.

Real hollandaise can be a piece of cake:

You make me smile with my heart

Good work, Vee-Dub. Thanks for including me again. I kind of thought I might get banned for submitting nothing but desserts. I promise to submit something else, uh, someday.
