Our thanks to all of you who participated in our third Weekend Cookbook Challenge. Our theme this time around was "Food in Shades of Orange", and it looks like every one had a good time with it. From appetizers to dessert, and some jam and salsa, everything's coming up orange!
First off, the hosts-
Alicat from Something So Clever - is pleasantly surprised with her Orange Glazed Carrots with Cilantro.
Sara from i like to cook is not crazy about her Curried Lentil Soup.
This month's roundup was done by Sara. Please email me at email@example.com for any corrections.
All 4 of these fantastic looking dishes are from Ruth at Once Upon a Feast - Tropical Salsa, Butternut Squash, Orange Endive Salad and Roasted Carrots.

Thanks to all of you who participated, we hope you had as much fun as we did! Please join us next month for challenge number 4. Don't worry, this one has a broader theme - Easter Breakfast and/or Brunch.
There are quite a few possibilities out there for Easter breakfast and brunch -- mimosas, omlette's, coffee cakes and more. Whether you celebrate religiously or not, please join us! If you have a recipe you would like to try out that has nothing to do with Easter per se, but it does fall into the breakfast or brunch category, that is great too!
See you then!
Alicat and Sara.
