Favorite Post of the Week - Apple Brown Betty

Here's Jessica's comment on her favorite Apple Brown Betty post:

'I'm glad everyone enjoyed it as much as I did! I really enjoyed everyones posts, and how each person really made it their own. My favorite was from Danica at Danica's Daily. I loved her process pictures, especially the "apple, peeler, corer" and the bread crumbs.'

Favorite Post of the Week - Tomato-Tortilla Soup

Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet chose the post written by Bri of Yoshimi Vs. Motherhood on the Tomato-Tortilla Soup as her favorite post, here she explains why:

'This was my favorite post....I like the variety of pictures, I like when she spoke about the immersion blender (which I want!), and I like how she gave tips (make extra tortilla strips).'

Fall Blogroll Clean Up

It's time to clean up the Blogroll!

As the rules state you have to participate at least twice a month, also if you host you have to actually make and post the recipe you pick. For september we checked the blogs and a couple of the members didn't comply with the rules, therefor I'm removing them from the blogroll and the recipe rotation.

If you feel you were mistakenly dropped from the blogroll and recipe rotation, contact me at When you know in advance that you won't be able to participate in a certain month, let us know by sending an email to:

November Recipes + looking for a volunteer

When I took over hosting CEiMB from Sara a couple of us thought it would be a good idea to make sure that the rules for CEiMB were complied with. For the cooks that participate faithfully every week it can be discouraging to cook a recipe and then find out that the person who picked the recipe didn't even bother to cook and post it. However since I went back to school I found that I don't have time to check all the blogs every month to see if everyone posted at least one of the chosen recipes for CEiMB and if the host posted the recipe she chose. 

So now I am looking for a volunteer: is there someone who would be willing to check out all the blogs once per month to see a) if that months hosts actually hosted their recipe and b) if the blogger posted one CEiMB post that month? If you are willing to do this at the end of every month, please send me an email at!

Please note that if you hosted a recipe and did not post it, you will be removed from the blogroll. The same goes for anyone who hasn't posted any CEiMB-posts in a month. If you no longer want to be a part of CEiMB, please let me know via email at so I can drop you from the recipe rotation and blogroll. If for some reason you're not able to participate at any given time, also please let me know via email!

Without further ado I now give you the recipes for November:

4 November, 2010: Joanne of Apple Crumbles selected Mushroom, Onion and Basil Pizza on page 1706 of The Food You Crave.

11 November, 2010: Kayte of Grandma's Kitchen Table chose Whole Wheat Pasta Salad with Walnuts and Feta Cheese on page 137 of The Food You Crave.

18 November, 2010: Margaret of Tea and Scones picked Cioppino on page 199 of So Easy.

25 November, 2010: Thanksgiving special - choose your own recipe - deadline postponed to Friday November 26th. 2010

2 December, 2010: Bri of Yoshimi Vs. Motherhood decided on Tortellini-Spinach Soup on page 90 of So Easy.

Thanksgiving at Craving Ellie in My Belly

Hi Everyone,

Last week I sent out an email to the members who get to pick the recipes for November, one of the members noticed that the date of their pick was Thanksgiving. Now as most of you all know I'm not American and even though I know your holidays, I was completely unaware of the exact date of Thanksgiving. 

Bri of Yoshimi Vs. Motherhood suggested to do what we did last year: have us all choose our own recipe to make and post about. This will give everyone some flexibility with the holiday and still be able to participate. Perhaps even try to incorporate your Ellie recipe pick into your Thanksgiving meal if possible. 

Also, the posting deadline was extended to Friday last year so that we don't have to worry about posting and blogging on TG if we don't want to. Would you all prefer to extend the deadline this year too?

Let me know your thoughts!!!
