Guess Who's Hosting Weekend Herb Blogging this Week? Me. The brainchild of Kalyn, of Kalyn's Kitchen, has been one of the web's most popular food blogging events, and has been going strong for well over a year. Weekend Herb Blogging (WHB) was my first ever food blogging event, and my first post for it was on the yamaimo, back on September 24, 2006. And since then I've participated in the event with a Dill Havarti Sandwich, Dill Cream En Croute, Lamb and Herb Soup featuring dill again, and a German Cucumber and Potato Soup, with yes, dill again. I had to put dill in some Dilled Corn and Potato Salad for WHB before finally moving on to another herb. (You are probably wondering if I voted for dill as my favorite herb in Kalyn's Anniversary Celebration of WHB? Wonder no more.) I featured celery in a Celery Cous Cous which makes a superb side dish, then got adventurous with a Chard Skillet Saute. I then went natively exotic with Sunchokes Gratin, followed by Sesame Salsify. I then went on a soy binge for Weekend Herb Blogging, showing how to make soy milk and tofu from scratch, and featuring a Hiyashi Tofu recipe. I had to do something with all that soy bran, so the next time I entered Tropical Okara Granola into Weekend Herb Blogging. My most recent entry into Weekend Herb Blogging was an Herbed Cheese Log which featured parsley. What am I going to do this week? Well, I haven't decided, so it will be a surprise for all of us!

I have been working on posting all the recipes which I've posted on this site to GroupRecipes, under the username annalou. If you are interested in the recipe side of my blog, this is a good spot to go for a summary of all my recipes with photos.
