This is my first month participating in a new challenge. The Secret Recipe Club has become very popular as far as blogging challenges go, and they have has a wait list since October. A month ago I recieved an e-mail alerting me that a spot was free. I ws very excited to participate because I love discovering new blogs and recipes. I also like to see what other people think of the dishes that I have made.
For this round, I recieved the blog Biking and Baking. I really enjoyed reading the different types of recipes because many of them are vegan and/or vegetarian. I came across a recipe for Black Beans and Peaches. I thought it sounded both refreshing and delicious- perfect for summer. As described, it is both strange and delicious (and I mean that in a good way!). I love the combo of the two main ingredients, and paried with a salty tortilla chip it is addictive! I think my only future modification would be the addition of a jalapeno for a little extra heat! Thank you for a great recipe!
