Carnival of Recipes 1-0-0

Welcome the 100th installment of the carnival of recipes. Your humble host, me, will try to guide you through the latest rendition of the juggernaut that is the carnival. My basement flooded and took out a lot of the kids' clothes and toys during the last time I hosted, so let's hope this goes a little smother, no? Step on up and take a seat at the counter and let's see what is on the menu of the World this week.

Some of my most favorite recipes from the previous carnivals include:
The Geezer's Huli Huli Chicken. This stuff is heaven and is the most requested recipe I use from the carnival. People just can't get enough of it!

Don't forget AussieWife's Fish Burritos with Cucumber Salad. MMMMM. I actually lifted this, redid it, and submitted the new recipe to a different carnival.

Let us not forget Rory and his what not to cook series.

On to this week's submissions!

Shawn Lea, the most gracious keeper of the carnival starts us off with a birthday cake in honor of the carnival's 100th installment. I dare you to click on that link and not make one yourself.

She would also like to share Chicken and Smoked Sausage Gumbo. Shhhh! Her secret is that she makes it because it's hard, but not too hard. Most people don't make it from scratch anymore, so give it a try. Your patience in making the roux will pay off big time.

Dr. Fuhrman is up next with a couple of healthy goodies- Rice Pudding with Banana/Apricot Sauce and a Tuttie Fruitie Pita Sandwich. Good stuff.

Marsha at A Weight Lifted brings offers up a trio of Summer Smoothies. These sound great on days when the soars into the triple digits.

The next submission comes from down under. Joanne would like to share Home Made Ice Cream. The site is dedicated to guiding people to a life that is nourishing, healthy, wholesome, and wise.

Riannen would like to point out that her submission for Beef and Pork Sauce is not a stew or goulash. It is a sauce to be used over noodles or with potatoes or potato dumplings. I could eat this with just about anything since I agree with her assessment that "beef and pork together produces a magical flavor."

Peggy Hall at Blabber Heads joins me in walking down memory lane with her fond memories of Cheesy Bacon Green Beans and Potatoes - In a Crock. What part of that recipe doesn't sound yummy? This recipe was originally in a carnival on Practigal.

Imagine, if you are the only person who isn't hot right now, that it's a warm day and you have a place of refreshing Tomato and Mango Salsa in front of you. Wow. Thank Bill at World Famous Recipes for this one.

Kathee brings us Cider Vinegar Chicken. Her site dedicated to chicken recipes has more to keep you busy cooking for weeks.

After developing an intolerance for wheat two and a half years ago our next submitter learned to work around her obstacle with Wheatless Pancakes. Check out this link for a picture.

Now I bring the post of my new hero. This blogger created an index of every carnival submission they have made. Count them. 68 submissions. This person loves to cook.

Who wants to turn the oven on in the middle of summer? Now you don't have to if you still want to enjoy a decadent pie. I present Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Pie from KeeWee's Corner.

triticale brings us a recipe from his foster niece. Check out the Easy Cheesy Potatoes. Yum.

Maureen from Trinity Prep School would like everyone to try some Fresh Brushetta. The garlic soup mix sounds like an interesting twist I'll have to try sometime soon.

Finally, Amy at brings us some lovely pumpkin pancakes. They sound good and the top left logo brings back all kinds of memories of bathing my two year old twins.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this and any of the previous carnivals. Thanks for sharing your time, taste, and words. Check out next week to continue your fix.
