Recipes from Bloggers

Broccoli & Cheese Soup 

Last weekend I did a little bit of cooking and decided to test out a couple of recipes I had seen shared by some fellow bloggers.  Firstly I have been wanting to try out Broccoli & Cheese Soup for a while and in my search stumbled across this recipe by The Veggie Mama.  I whipped up a pot on Saturday while Corey was sick on the lounge.  I woke him up to have a bowl and he ate it up pretty quickly. It was delicious! I will definitely be saving this recipe into the winter recipe list.

Orange Butter Cake

After the soup I thought it might be nice to bake something sweet to take to Garterbelts & Gasoline.  We pack a picnic whenever we go to a festival so we can camp out in front of the stage and have lunch and listen to music.  I had a few spare oranges so I decided to whip up this Orange Butter Cake I saved a while ago from Melbourne Epicure.  Cathy is an absolute goddess when it comes to cakes and this one is no different.  It is so quick and easy to whip up and produces a delicious moist butter cake.

Have you found any good recipes on the blogs you read lately?  I am having the biggest urge to try out new recipes lately and have been cooking up a storm!


  1. Both look so yummy! I loooove making this whole orange cake:

    It is so easy - you literally put the whole orange in the food processor add other the ingredients and voila! I don't have a food processor so have always used the mini processor attachment on my wizz-stick thing, I just chop up the oranges first so I don't blow it up.

    I'd recommend using only 1 or 2 eggs though, as 3 makes it a big eggy.


  2. Well, yum and YUM! I can try both of these recipes gluten free and I am an absolute broccoli-aholic, so pretty sure I will love that soup.

    PLUS I loved that blog and now following - thanks for all the recipes and blog love, Kat!
