Random Recipes #11 - Round Up

... wow... last day of the year... and what a month eh...?  this thing called Christmas just loomed out of nowhere, rearing its ugly head from behind a cloud of tinsel and fairy dust... but you still found time for a bit of charity this month and I'm so glad you did... you all get a gold star and one step nearer to heaven... which, believe me I really need right now!

kicking us straight of is the brilliant Phil from As Strong As Soup with this funny recipe for Microwave Chocolate Fudge taken from the dreadful (I know, I have it) Microwave Cookbook by the people at  Good Housekeeping 

next out of the charity bag is the lovely Karen from Lavender and Lovage with this Goat's Cheese Salad with Quick Cranberry Chutney taken from The Readers Digest 30 Minute Cookbook

next we have these stunning Lebkuchen chosen from Gifts from the Kitchen by Annie Rigg made by the wonderful Yummy Choo

lovely Jo next from Comfort Bites with this rather nice Pork, Apple and Sage Kebabs taken from Gary Rhodes' Great Fast Food

next is the wonderful Ruth from Makey-Cakey with this perfectly un-Christmassy Rocket, Parmesan and Pear Salad (without the Parmesan...) taken from the rather odd World Cuisine Italy (1)... better at the charity shop I say!

next is a virgin entry for Random Recipes by Laura from How to Cook Good Food... who we welcome heartily with this very good Three Cheese Ravioli and Walnut Sauce taken from the intruigingly titled Wraps Around the World!

lovely Kate from What Kate Baked is next with this very Christmassy looking Panna Cotta taken from the Hairy Bikers 12 Days of Christmas

next up is Gill from Tales of Pigling Bland with this bloody amazing looking Madiera Cake WITH hocolate lid... of all things!...taken from Good Housekeepings Cakes and Pastries

and now onto Lucy from The KitchenMaid who is pretty much acting as superwoman at the moment with a big house move and still had time to join in the random recipes madness with this Krummeltorte taken from Sophie Gray's painfully titled Stunning food from Small Change

next up is Farmersgirl herself Janice with a very inventive Turkey and Cream Sauce Bake taken from The Book of Pizza and Pasta... it should have been salmon but for some reason she had some left-over turkey...

next is lovely Lou from Please Do Not Feed The Animals who made this rather healthy Poached Salmon with Herb Dressing taken from Everyday Food by Martha Stewart

and of course, let's not forget little old me (from Belleau Kitchen) with a rather nice as it happens Creamy Vegetable Curry taken from the now greatly missed, Practical Low Fat

so thank-you once again for the lovely entries... wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2012... see you in the New Year with a new Random Recipes challenge and plenty of new recipes and fun!

eat and of course, enjoy!


  1. Fantastic round up Dom - there's only a couple that I haven't read already, so looking forward to reading them.

    Very interesting to see some of the books that are being given away - some surprises in there!

    Wishing you all the very best for 2012

  2. Hi Dom!!!
    Sorry but I couldn't take part this time as I was to busy to cook for Christmas!!
    I will be in next year ;-)
    Wishing you a 2012 full of love!!

  3. Great round up! Happy New Year 2012! Look forward to reading more of your blog next year.

  4. Good round up! I've missed again, good intentions and all that. Perhaps I'll just give my chosen book away anyway - was struggling to find something I wanted to make from it as it was!!!

  5. AB FAB round up and I am looking forward to January's RR, I have become a bit of a RR junkie ~ maybe it's your sparkling persona Dom!

  6. Great round-up Dom, so many interesting dishes! Happy New Year to you too, will try harder to join in each month from now on! x

  7. A great round-up Dom, with some lovely recipes that make me think - why get rid of the book. I'm so sorry I didn't manage to take part in this one as I thought it was such a good idea and I really need to have a good sort through my books - as well as all my other stuff too! Just couldn't get my head around it this side month. AND I don't like missing your RR challenges.

    Thanks for being such a great blogging friend and I wish you and the Viking the very best for 2012 (and hopefully we'll get a bit more of a glimpse of your kitchen)!

  8. You always write this up with such humour, I love the way you put these together but hits line...
    it should have been salmon but for some reason she had some left-over turkey...
    just completely had me in stitches...
    Happy new year and in 2012 keep on doing more of what you do. xxx

  9. I raise a glass to you and the Viking and look forward to more Random adventures in 2012. Janice X

  10. great round-up! I had no cookbook to give away, though I did give away a harry potter book.. i made a chocolate orange cake which I was hoping would end up qualifying (as harry's chocolate birthday cake) but decided not to push it haha. thanks for doing this and lookign forward to more in 2012! have an awesome new year's!

  11. Fab round up Dom - as always! Happy new year to you both x

  12. A great round-up and some very interesting recipes - thanks again for that.
    As predicted, I was unable to take part because I only throw out books if there is absolutely no chance whatsoever of me wanting to cook anything from the only ones that I took to the charity shop had nothing I was prepared to try, no matter how much I flipped through the pages !!


Sorry folks....Ive had to switch on a spam filter word verification due to a sudden influx of spam,
