Weekend Cookbook Challenge 28 Round up - TV Cooks

Hello out there, and thanks for coming to read the round up for Weekend Cookbook Challenge 28 - TV Cooks. I'd like to say a big thanks to everyone who took part this month. There are literally a zillion food challenges out there, and I thank you for coming and taking part in mine.

Let's start this round up off with ME!, shall we?

After my original recipe choice turned out hideously, I tried a yummy summertime drink, Berry Smooth from the ever popular Sandra Lee.

Mike from Mel's Diner, who will be the host with the most for June's WCC, shares with us Crispy Fried Rhubarb Pork from Jamie Oliver.

Newlywed Michelle at Je Mange La Ville was inspired to make Provencal Vegetable Soup from Wolfgang Puck.

Fellow BC'er KC from Kits Chow joins us for her second WCC with this mighty tasty looking Kayaker's Wok Fried Mac from PBS.

Judy and Judy's Gross Eats share with us Super Nachos from Rachel Ray.

The wonderful Shaun of Winter Skies, Kitchen Aglow has joined me again and came with a lovely Braised Pork Belly and Buttered Apples from Tyler Florence.

Another familiar face is Haalo and Cook Almost Anything Once, with some very pretty Goat Cheese and Red Capsicum Pancakes from Gary Rhodes.

Yay! Ruth has come for a visit at WCC with a two post dish over on Once Upon a Feast - Fermented Black Bean and Garlic Sauce and the finished dish Black Bean Chicken and Tofu Stirfy from Ming Tsai.

And yet another old friend, Pavani who urges me not to give up yet on Tempeh with this Tempeh Club Sandwich from Delicious TV.

Robin from Made with Love shares a decadant dessert, Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding Trifle from my girl Paula Deen.

Anne and Kitchen Bliss bring these great Wolfgang Puck Ginger and Lemongrass Grilled Shrimp to the round up.

Lisa and An Apron A Day have a kickin cheesecake from Emeril - Margarita Mama's Cheesecake.

Paula the Cookbook Junkie shares a dramatic Carrot Cake from The Young and the Restless. Slap!

BA Gourmet from the self titled blog whips up some Coconut Macaroons from Ina Garten.

Deb from Kahakai Kitchen in Hawaii (I'm officially sick with jealousy) whipped up a tropical Coconut Bread Pudding from Sam Choy.

Megan from My Baking Adventures got creative with Chocolate Covered Strawberries from Ina Garten.

Again, huge thanks to all of you who shared with us this month! I appreciate it so much.

June's WCC will be hosted by my man Mike of Mel's Diner. His theme is SALAD, so wow him with a fantastic salad and email your link to him at eatatmelsdiner AT gmail DOT com by June 29.

Great event, and makes it obvious as to why I'm a tv food junkie.

Thanks for putting this all together.

Thanks for hosting the challenge! I loved everyone's results and I love your blog!!

KC said...

Great roundup, Sara! There are so many new ideas here. Thanks for hosting.

Sara said...

Ruth thanks very much for taking part. This nice weather has really cut down on my Food TV watching time. I need to figure out a way to get the TV from the living room to the backyard...

Kitchen Bliss - Thank you!

KC - Every round up is great, but this one has some really really great contributions.

Lovely roundup. And those strawberries are something else. Megan must have a very steady hand.

What a great round-up! I guess people are still inspired by TV chefs. I saw several dishes I can't wait to try- but I will start with your Sandra Lee inspired cocktail!

Sara, darling ~ It is great to see everyone drawing from the same well and come up with something different. This really suggests that such channels are not endorsements for a homogeneous, cookie-cutout existence. Very inspiring offerings here.
