Real Food Weekly- August 4, 2011

August, the last month of the summer.  The month we are inundated with tons of tomatoes.  I love it.  Everything in the garden and on the farms is really humming.  I love how basil is bountiful at the same time as the tomatoes.  Works out nicely.   It’s a great time to make a pesto and roast off some tomatoes then top it off with that pesto.  Yum!

I’m really excited to see what you have to share with us this week.   Here are some great ideas from last week:

The Easiest Way to Peel Garlic from Whole. New. Mom

Poblano Soup from Gluten Free Cat

Baked Sweet Potato Falafel from Diet, Desserts and Dogs

OK, I’m waiting.  Show me what you got!


Please link back to this post so your readers can find lots of great recipes.

Link to your individual post, not your home page.

Please share recipes made with very little packaged ingredients but using single food ingredients or Real Food. Maybe 1 or 2 if the list of ingredients is long.  If I bake something I’m usually using almond flour but I didn’t make it myself.   So you see where I’m going with this.

Please do not link giveaways or book reviews, this is for recipes with Real Food.

As always, have fun!

Now hopefully that doesn’t seem to difficult.  The point is to share Real Food with Real People!

Please don’t make me be a meanie and have to remove your link if you don’t follow the guidelines.

When you share your recipe feel free to grab one of these badges, or as Tia calls it Real Food Bling, and add it to your post.  You can even add it to your blog sidebar.

You can find these on the page dedicated to Real Food Weekly.

Now look below for the words, Click Here To Enter so you can link up your recipe!  Thank you.

    Thanks so much for the mention, Diane! All the recipes sound so yummy. 🙂 And I only wish my garden were that bountiful–the tomatoes are still green over here, and the basil isn't! (My poor basil just shrivelled up and died this year. . . no idea why. Sniff, boo hoo!). Heading to the blog to see what I can contribute this week. 🙂

    Hi, Diane! Thanks for hosting! We're celebrating National Peach Month at The Nourishing Home, so I shared a few peach recipes. Hope you're having a blessed week! 🙂 Kelly

    Yippee for garden abundance! We don't have one living in the woods, but I do appreciate the local produce at our farmers market. 🙂

    I linked up some wonderful chocolate beer muffins (plus more options). I finally perfected them for you all! 😉

    Thanks so much for hosting! I shared a nourishing Chocolate Elderberry Fudge (w/ dairy-free option). It is full of chocolaty goodness and so easy to make. Thanks again!

    Thanks so much for mentioning my poblano soup! Wish I had something to link up this week, but it's the first week of school. Lots of impromptu salads and smoothies here! (I have to try Valerie's pudding and Ricki's Falafel!)

    Definitely agree about the tomatoes and basil – soooo yummy together. Thanks for hosting!
