Bookmarked Recipes #53

Monday, May 11, 2009
Here’s this week's round up of Bookmarked Recipes and this week we have some more great recipes from some more great bloggers. This week’s round up is being hosted by James at The Cotswold Food Year

You're wondering what to eat for lunch? You're wondering what to eat for dinner? Don't worry - we've got it taken care of at Bookmarked Recipes this week.

Lunch City Girl (who likes to blog anon) of City Girl Lifestyle finds a great way to chill out on a hot day with this Cucumber watermelon cooler which her husband bookmarked from My Spicy Kitchen. And as yesterday was Mother's Day in the US, Canada and Australia, it would have made a great addition to your Mother's Day celebrations.

Ning at Heart and Hearth has been baking, and shares her easy beer bread from an original recipe from Dog Hill Kitchen. Easy because it contains no yeast, so there's no need to knead - how good is that! You may remember this from a previous Bookmarked Recipes. It's been on my to-make list ever since then. With 2 recommendations now it has to be good! With such wonderful bread, you need the perfect accompaniment. Something like this hot artichoke dip from Patsy at Family, Friends and Food. The recipe, originally from Sweetnicks, was ideal for the monthly Bunko night, and luckily her sons are good at stirring, if they could just remember whose turn it was to stir..... Dinner

Shhh! Can you keep a secret? The secret of the Secret-Secret Geography Club. This time Kindra of The Meal Planner turned the club's attention on the cooking of France and made this decadent dish of Coq au vin. She wanted a recipe that would knock her guests socks off, and found one by Emeril Lagasse on the Food Network. The only problem being, when her guests came to go home they realised they didn't have any socks left.....
P.S. I also know from Foodie at 15 that a Dutch Oven in the US is what we call a casserole dish in the UK. You guys have some funny words.

For dessert you might try making this rhubarb jelly which I found from Keiko at Nordljus and made from the rhubarb growing in my garden. She sets the jelly on top of pistachio mousse, but back on the Cotswold Food Year, I set it in a container and diced it as a garnish for my rhubarb crumble tart. If you adjusted amount of sugar you could use any fruit instead of the rhubarb. Except kiwi of course - the acid content is too high for the gelatine. Thanks everyone for your submissions!!! It's always exciting to see what people have been making and recreating as well as meeting some new bloggers. Next week’s round up will be hosted by Divya at Dil Se…
