Hosts for July!

July 3, 2012- Hazelnut Biscotti, p. 315 hosted by Jodi of Homemade and Wholesome and Katrina of Baking and Boys

July 17, 2012- Semolina Bread, p. 102 hosted by Renee of The Way to my Family’s Heart and Anna of Keep it Luce

July 31, 2012- Blueberry Nectarine Pie, p. 384 Hilary of Manchego’s Kitchen and Liz of That Skinny Chick Can Bake

I know there was a little stress for some folks because we opted for three Tuesdays this month.  No worries everyone!  As long as you bake along with at least one of these, you are eligible to host.  And if three recipes are too many for you, do what you can.

Bake on!

July Recipes! Anyone out there anxious to host?

I am super stoked about this month. I have vowed to make one pie per week for the entire summer. This is to remedy the fact that I am an absolutely horrible pie maker. When I say horrible, I mean it. (This is Laurie, not Jules, I am sure Jules is a fab pie maker. I just know she is.) I was so excited that several pies/tarts were suggested for this month. However, we did not want to overload the month on sweets, so there is savory as well. Happiness for all!

If you would like to host one of these recipes (two needed each recipe), please throw your name in the hat by leaving a comment below.  This is a NO CHAT post.  I’ll close this post on the 22nd and announce the hosts on the 23rd.

What are we making in June? Nominate here!

It’s that time of the month again!

Just to review:  We ask for nominations. An executive committee will review the nominations. One simple and one more difficult recipe will be chosen to be featured the following month. Next week, we will ask for volunteers to host said recipes on another post. A host for each recipe will be chosen by random number generator from the list of volunteers.  Once you have hosted, you move to the back of the line to give others the same chance.

Pick something good!

Enter your recipe nomination for May in the comments below. Please include page numbers. Recipe Nominations will close on 5/17/12.

Please leave Recipe Nominations only. This is a NO CHAT post.

LYL: Hungarian Shortbread

Look at these gorgeous examples!  You’ll find them on our host’s blogs along with the recipes.

This one was made by Lynette of 1smallkitchen.

This beauty is from Cher of The not so exciting adventures of a dabbler…

And two last reminders. 1) This is a NO CHATTER POST.  Links only, please.  2) Sometimes links and/or comments end up in our spam folder.  We get to it as soon as we can to approve them.  Please only leave one link or comment.  If you still don’t see it a few hours after posting, shoot us an e-mail so we can approve.  THANK YOU!

LYL: Irish Soda Bread

Let’s see how yours turned out!

Cathy of My Culinary Mission  made a gorgeous version with Gruyere cheese.  Carla of Chocolate Moosey went a little more old school.  (The size differential is only because I’m lousy at working with photos.  It’s nothing personal.  ;-)

Links only, please.  Save the chatter for the other post!

***** Edited to add:  If your post doesn’t show up right away, please don’t comment multiple times.  Chances are it’s caught in the spam folder and it will be approved very soon.  Thank you!
