SOS Mint Roundup–And We Have a Coconut Oil Winner!

Giveaway Winner:  Before I move to our SOS roundup, it’s time to announce the winner of the Tropical Traditions giveaway!  Thanks to everyone for entering the giveaway–I was delighted with so many entries!

And now, our randomly chosen winner is:

Comment #81: AMY!  Amy’s comment about what she’d make was

That fudge looks wonderful Ricki!!! I’m pretty sure I’d have to flop in my will power and eat a whole batch!!

Congratulations, Amy!  Hope you enjoy the coconut oil (but go easy on the fudge) ;).

Stay tuned for number two in the “Back to School Swag” series of giveaways–another exciting ingredient and recipe using it, coming up in a day or so! 😀

And now, on to our regularly scheduled blog entry. . . .

Last month’s SOS Kitchen Challenge, hosted by Kim from Affairs of Living and me, featured none other than everyone’s favorite invasive herb: mint! We received a wide variety of sweet and savory contributions from bloggers all around the world, and I think we truly did mint proud.

Despite the wide variety of delicious-looking soups, salads, and other savory dishes–twenty entries in all!–I must admit that, like Kim, my eyes went immediately to dessert. Kim and I are both big fans of chocolate, and this challenge certainly provided us with lots of drool-worthy recipes: Mint-Chip Ice Cream, Maca Mint Blondies, Frozen Mint Mojito Avocado Truffles, Not-So-Faux After Eights, and Coconut Milk Mint Chip Ice Cream (see links, below).  Amazing!

Check out the Linky below for a listing of all the recipe submissions for last month’s challenge. You may discover a new blogger or find your new favorite recipe–and that’s what this challenge is all about!  

Thanks to everyone who participated. We hope you’ll join us for this month’s challenge, which will be announced on Tuesday, just after the upcoming long weekend here in Canada (and most of the US, I think).

Any guesses on what September’s ingredient will be?

Have a great Labor Day (or your regular) Weekend, everyone! 🙂

  • I’d wondered how you would do this round up and glad there is a post to remind us of it – even though I have already started browsing a while ago! I think I prefer mint in savoury food though your mint chocolate ice cream could prove me wrong

    Missed the giveaway but am sure it went to someone more passionate about coconut oil than me
