Without Further Ado…

… I would like to present my Food Blogging Mentees…

Dot of Foodcent’s hails from lovely Colorado. She graces us with product reviews, food savings tips and some recipes, while ultimately keeping in mind the goal of eating healthy and loving yourself.

Ashley of Smashedpotatoe, a recent college grad, loves pumpkin, baking to de-stress, cooking and Wordless Wednesdays.

I will be mentoring them for the next couple months as part of Adopt-A-Blogger #4 (yes, apparently, I’ve been doing this enough to mentor). So please, jump on over to their blogs and welcome them into the food blogging family…

Carrot-Ginger Soup
(idea from here)

2 garlic cloves, smashed
1 small onion, chopped
2 in. ginger, fresh and chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
12 oz. bag frozen carrots
3 cups chicken broth

In a stock pot, heat the olive oil. Saute the onion until soft. Add the ginger and garlic for about a minute. Put in the frozen carrots and the chicken broth. Bring the broth to a boil. Boil until tender. In batches, puree until fine in a food processor. Be careful because hot liquid can expand in the food processor (and I’ve read, even explode!). Or use an immersion blender (Thanks, Mom!). Serve with some goat cheese and good bread.

    Good for you for adopting TWO bloggers. Isn’t this a wonderful program?
