Carnival of the Recipes #15

Thanks to everyone who sent in entries for this week's Carnival of the Recipes!

Main Dishes:

Marinated Pork Tenderloin from Christina of Feisty Repartee. The pork is marinated in a soy/bourbon/sugar mixture and served with a creamy mustard sauce.

Slow-cooked Pork Roast from Anywhere But Here.

Fried Chicken Strips coated in a spiced flour and oatmeal mixture from Jay of Accidental Verbosity. (Includes photos.)

Jeff from Trub. The sediment of life. has a recipe for Augiesala. This is a spicy dish of chicken and peppers served with angel hair pasta.

A Thai recipe for Sweet Chicken in Green Curry Paste comes from Amanda of Aussie Wife.

VW of One Happy Dog Speaks shares a recipe for Chicken Tetrazzini, a dish of chicken and mushrooms in a cream sauce served over pasta. It sounds like an Italian dish but it's really American, created for the opera star Louisa Tetrazzini.

I had never heard of talapia until this week when I received two recipes using this type of fish.

Allan of Inside Allan's Mind gives us his recipe for Citrus-Jerk Talapia. (Includes photos.)

Pan Seared Tilapia from The Laughing Wolf. The pan-fried fillets are served with a Cream Sauce.

Homemade Pizza from the Organic Baby Farm. The recipe makes enough for two to three pizzas which makes it easier for those of us who have to cater to kids' finicky appetites.


One of the best recipes for Mashed Potatoes that I've ever read comes from The Flying Space Monkey Chronicles. This is his first Carnival of the Recipes entry and the post ends with the comment, "Update: This is not a recipe blog." Deny it all you want, just keep posting your recipes!

Amy of Prochien Amy offers a recipe for Granny's Noodles, a perfect comfort food for winter.

The Laughing Wolf has two recipes for side dishes to go with the Tilapia I mentioned in the Main Dish section - Roast Garlic and Cheddar Mashed Potatoes and Peas.

Triticale has a recipe for Spaceman's Legs Pasta Salad. He also has recipes for two pies but you'll have to wait until we get to the dessert section of today's menu for more information about those.


Marvie from Marvie's Crochet Corner has a recipe for Potato-Cauliflower Soup.

Songstress7 of News from the Great Beyond has a recipe for Pumpkin Soup. You can make this soup using fresh or canned pumpkin.


Cinnamon Pie from CalTech Girl of Not Exactly Rocket Science. A slice of this pie served with a cup of hot tea or coffee would revive even the most fatigued holiday shopper.

As promised above, 6.283185307178 - two pi(e)s from Triticale - Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pie and French Silk Chocolate Pie.

A different kind of Pumpkin Pie from Anywhere But Here. It's a crustless pie baked in a 13"x9" pan with a crumb topping made of cake mix and chopped nuts.

Chris’s Pumpkin Cheesecake finishes up the meal at The Laughing Wolf (see entries for Tilapia and the side dishes above.)

Churros by Bothenook of A Geezer's Corner. These are Spanish doughnuts rolled in cinnamon or powdered sugar and they go great with hot chocolate.

Alert the media, The Glittering Eye has a recipe for Fruitcake that is not just edible but actually good!

Denise from Grandma's House has a recipe for Potato Candy rolled up jellyroll-style with a peanut butter filling.

Punctilious of Like News but Tasty has a recipe for Raspberry Walnut Chocolate Chip Brownies. The recipe was a last minute inspiration (aka what's available in the pantry) birthday cake.

My recipe this week, part of my series of Christmas Cookie recipes, is for Tiny Holiday Tarts. These are raspberry and almond flavored tarts cooked in mini muffin tins.

Everything looks great!

Thanks so much for all of your hard work.

Thanks, Christina. Listing and linking is the easy part. The hard part is deciding which recipes to try first!

Nice job. I wish I had categorized the recipes that nicely when I hosted.

And thanks to everyone who contributed. Great stuff.

Thanks for the plug. Just one quick little correction though: I'm G-U-llyborg, not G-O-llyborg. :-)

Posted by Gullyborg at November 26, 2004 07:25 PM


My apologies. It's been corrected. I remembered the comment you made last week ("O" not "E") and I guess I got carried away with Os.

Holy Cow, does this look awesome!!!!

The Glittering Eye's Fruitcake looks DIVINE, but it mentions honey, but gives no quantity.

Posted by Mac at November 28, 2004 12:32 AM

Good pickup, Mac. Thanks. The fruitcake calls for 1/3 cup honey. I've changed the recipe on my blog accordingly.

I wonder if this will turn into some new kind of tradition, whereby everyone tunes in each week to see how my name is spelled?
