A Cookbook Swap and New-to-Me Bloggers

Throughout the year I participate in events that span the blogosphere. It might be for a cause, such as the Cookies for Kids Cookie Swap I do around the holidays; it might just be for fun, such as a Pepper Party.

Food Blogger Prop Swap

But I stumbled on this event - the Food Blogger Cookbook Swap cohosted by Alyssa of Everyday Maven and Faith of An Edible Mosaic - and signed up immediately. Geniuses both, I tell you.I can not wait to participate!

If you are anything like I am, you probably have enough cookbooks to build the Great Wall of China. Okay, maybe not quite that many. But I used to pick up cookbooks anytime I went to a bookstore. Sadly, almost all of our local bookstores have disappeared; but there's always amazon. I have purchased cookbooks for single dinner parties. I have cookbooks that I have reviewed for publishers. I have received cookbooks as gifts. Some I use once; some I - blush, blush - have never used and probably will never use.

So, I am tickled that I get to package up a cookbook and swap it with another foodie blogger. Another great thing about this: I get to meet some new-to-me bloggers. Rose at Avocado Bravado; Hannah at Blue Kale Road; Cucina Kristina; Kitchen Treaty; and Kellie at the Suburban Soapbox - nice to meet you! And it's always nice to see some old friends: Heather at girlichef; Carrie at Poet in the Pantry; Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious; and more. It's always a pleasure to be part of projects with you all.

If you want to join the fun, click for more information here. The sign-up deadline is this week. You still have time!

Now I just need to wait for my assignment, peruse the blog, and pick a good book from my shelf.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R

We hope you'll follow along for inspiration. You can find out more information, including the schedule:  here . This week, we are "going nuts" and sharing all sorts of recipes with nuts.
