I made Italian pizza, Irish inspired nachos, Asian Salad,

Italian Gnocchi, Japanese pancakes, and French beignets…

a little traveling by cuisine!

Asparagus, Mushroom & Artichoke Aoili Pizza

I made my own lo carb version of Irish Pub Nacho Potatoes from A Wicked Whisk using roasted cauliflower and broccoli florets instead of potatoes

Broccoli & Cauliflower Nachos

I shared a long time favorite, Asian Salad with Sesame Peanut Dressing inspired by Thai Peanut Salad from Seeking Good Eats

HHjr shared his recipe for Florentine Gnoochi with Mushrooms and Pancetta

We also enjoyed some Tex-Mex style Zucchini Boats,

full of sausage, black beans and corn

and I reshared 3 other stuffed zucchini recipes too

Stuffed Zucchini 4 Ways

White Chocolate Sugared Lemon Bundt Cake, original recipe was renamed to Snownut Cake because it looks exactly like a big powdered sugar donut!

I didn’t make Monte Cristo Crepes from Taste and Tell but I sure enjoyed HHjr’s Japanese style pancakes, such a stunning presentation!

Biscuit Beignets with Praline Sauce from Kevin and Amanda reminded me of one of our favorite treats
