Blog finds.....

---Red Velvet and Cinnamon Layer Cake. Red Velvet cakes seem to be trendy right now. A lot of the recipes that I am coming across for these are multi-step.
---Winter Delight Peppermint Cake.  Multi-step. Uses coffee. Winter isn't over yet. :-)

Annie's Eats
---Okra Cornmeal Cakes with Chevre and Roasted Tomatoes. Pretty and I like goat cheese.

"A little bit of country life in West London."
-----Sprats in Horse Radish Butter. A sprat is an oily fish with a lot of health benefits. :-)
-----Blackberry Bakewell. I have never heard of a "bakewell" and will have to investigate this more. The recipe is for an orange pastry filled with jam and topped with flaked almonds."Very nice with some extra thick double cream… or a glass of Amaretto… or both!" :-)
-----Nasturtium Pesto. I have filed this under "Willing to Try."

Berries and the Blue Sky
A blog about Estonian food.

These are mainly the blog author's family recipes from Algeria and The Maghreb.
---Algerian Baked Fish. Beautiful. This dish has actually inspired me to start a board for Algerian fish recipes on Pinterest.
---Algerian Lentil Soup (Chorbet Addas). It will be hard for me to find the lamb soup bones around here.
---This led me to read about the sprat which is among the principal fish caught in Algeria.Of note from the Wikipedia article on sprat:
"Sprat, most importantly contains long-chained polyunsaturated fatty acids, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).[Present in amounts that are comparable to Atlantic Salmon, and up to seven times higher in EPA and DHA than common fresh fillets of gilthead, the Sprat contains approximately 1.43g/100g of these polyunsaturated fatty acids that have been found to help prevent mental, neural, and cardiovascular diseases."
