Carnival of the Recipes!!

Anywhere But Here: Recipes From Somewhere Else
Let's have a world-wide roundup of recipes from every corner of the globe:

Mediterranean-inspired recipes
Angel Hair Pasta with Basil Cream Sauce
If you like prosciutto and parmesan, this one at Quietly Into The Night is for you!

Walnut Basil Pesto
Pesto is one of Italy's finest gifts to the culinary world, in my opinion, and A Weight Lifted has got just the thing to satisfy your basil cravings.

Mediterranean Stew
Wow, this one's great for cleaning out the fridge, being frugal, AND being delicious! Thanks to Stephanie from Stop The Ride.

Chicken Scallopini with Lemon, Artichokes and Capers
And did you know you can make it in 30 minutes? No, really. 30 minutes. The Expatriate explains it all.

My Mother's Tomato Ketchup Recipe
This ketchup's got an Indian twist to it; I am going to have to try this stuff from I, Me, Myself.

Indonesian Sate
Let's see... garlic... peanut butter... soy sauce... ginger... tofu... I am such a sucker for Asian dishes! Pipsqueak over at The Common Room is the fabulous submitter of this gem.

Japanese Summer Noodles
It's the perfect time of year to try these cold noodles. BlogDog over at Pugs Of War is your go-to guy for Asian recipes!

Mango Lassi
If you've been eating some spicy food from India, here's just the thing to cool you off, from Anywhere But Here.

Nigerian Spinach Stew, Peanut Butter Soup and Nshima
Everyone ought to branch out and try unusual new things. These sound scrumptious -- and none of the three recipes requires any hard-to-find ingredients, so you have no excuse not to try them. Besides, Wee Wifey says it's one of her family's favorites -- even the four-year-old loves it. Kids don't lie about tasty food, believe me. ---UPDATE: Triticale writes that the four-year-old is actually now 28! So this one's time-tested... all the more reason for you to enjoy it, too.

Mexican Chopped Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing
Bored with the same old fiesta salad you find at every Mexican restaurant everywhere? Try this one and you won't need to visit a restaurant to find the good stuff. Kudos to Shawn over at Everything And Nothing -- this one's a winner!

Mexican Chicken Casserole
Easy and yummy, your kids won't turn their noses up at this "ethnic" offering. From the Chicken Recipes blog... where, if you're needing something interesting and new to do with chicken, you'll find what you're looking for.

Quick Black Bean Salsa
SarahK makes this tremendous stuff, and it's not only amazing and tasty, it's GLUTEN-FREE!

Scandinavian Pot Roast
And it's done in your slow cooker, which makes it tasty AND easy. From World Famous Recipes, where you'll find all KINDS of yum.

Or translated: German Apple Pancakes. Need I say more? And did you know that there's a blog devoted entirely to Pancake Recipes? Well, if you didn't, you do now. No more excuses for boring breakfasts.

Russian Beef and Cabbage Stew
Don't tell anyone, but this one's also [whispering] good for you... it's from Diabetic Recipes. Shhh... you'd never know it.

Hungarian Wine Spritzer
Simply sparkly! The Egoist keeps it uncomplicated and very, very tasty.

BBQ Marinade from Montana (with bonus Apple Crisp recipe to accompany your meal)... there just isn't anything quite as satisfying as a thick slab of beef, and the folks from Innkeeping know it!

Make Your Own Buttermilk
This could be handy the next time you want to make buttermilk dressing and don't want to buy an entire quart. Lucynda's got the scoop on this tasty treat.

Acorn Squash, Green Beans Almondine and Asparagus with Orange Dressing and Walnuts
Disease-proof yourself by eating the healthy foods recommended on Dr. Fuhrman's site!

Mayonnaise With POW!!
This one's from Kneadle Work in California, but it originated in the South, where we hear it's used as a white barbecue sauce. Whatever it's used for, it must be too good to pass up, that's what I think. How could you go wrong with a little horseradish and cayenne, anyway?

Crockpot Indian Pudding
No politically-correct "Native American" or "First Nations" designation here... but who cares what it's called? It's got molasses and cornmeal in it; it's bound to be good, especially since it comes from Slow Cooker Recipes blog. I visit that blog often to plan my weekly meals.

Hawaiian Pancakes with Pineapple Syrup
Macadamia. Nuts. In. The. Batter. Oh, goodness, reading that recipe made my head swim. Thanks to Famous Recipes for that little equilibrium imbalance moment. I should wipe the drool off my shirt, I suppose.

Magic Milkshakes
A frequent commenter on my site, NorthernLight, says she found this recipe over at Hillbilly Housewife and TOTALLY loves it... except that she always calls them "Fake Frosties." Whatever you call them, you're going to love them... and you don't even have to feel guilty about eating them, either!

Key Lime Pie
Steve didn't submit this to the Carnival, but it's got to be the best Key Lime Pie on the face of Planet Earth, and I just wanted y'all to know, so I took the liberty of linking to it myself.

Happy Eating!
