What would you cook if you had two food bloggers coming for dinner? That was the decision I had to make for Saturday night, when Vanessa from She Craves and Erin from Erin Eats came to dinner at my house. As far as we know, the three of us are the only food bloggers in the Salt Lake area, and possibly the entire state of Utah. Any other Utah food bloggers lurking out there?
I made Curried Chicken on the Grill with cilantro chutney. The chutney was from California courtesy of my stepsister Karyn, who recenty sent me this fabulous black and white plate making its first appearance on Kalyn's Kitchen. In the background you can see asparagus prepared The Perfect Way to Cook Asparagus from Simply Recipes. (I also have a link to that asparagus recipe from Elise in my veggie archives. It's such a simple and wonderful recipe.)
We also had Brown and Wild Rice with Pine Nuts. This was something I first made for the dinner for my stepmother a few weeks back. I know I keep promising this recipe, and truly, it's coming this week!
For a salad, I chose Arugula and Sweet Mini-Pepper Salad, a combination I first came up with for one of Sweetnicks ARF Tuesdays. This is another super-easy but amazing tasting recipe.
Erin brought Mascerated Berries with Vanilla Marscapone for dessert, and it was fabulous. Head over to Erin Eats to get Erin's recipe for Mascerated Berries with Vanilla Marscapone. I don't think it's overstating it to say that Vanessa and I were completely blown away by this dessert.
The dinner was a lot of fun. We had a great time together, eating, dishing about all the blogs we read, comparing notes on the trials and tribulations of writing a food blog, talking about politics in Utah, and making plans for a monthly get-together. We're thinking dinner at The Red Iguana next time, since Erin hasn't been there and Vanessa and I both love the place. Stay tuned for the continuing adventures of the Utah food bloggers!Food Recipes Cooking Low Carb Recipes
