Polenta and Almond Cake

I seem to have a fascination with using polenta in cakes - there's been little Blueberry polenta cakes, a Polenta Poundcake, one with Polenta and Ricotta and even a serving of lemon polenta cookies. It's not all that surprising that when I spied a recipe for a polenta and almond cake in La Cucina Italian that I'd soon be making it.

Weekend Herb Blogging turns 5

It may have started as Kalyn said, by accident but we have now reached edition 260 which marks Weekend Herb Blogging's fifth anniversary!



Firstly, I'd like to thank our wonderful hosts who volunteer their time to support WHB:

Each week through Weekend Herb Blogging we get to travel the world, experiencing ingredients that we may not know, or learn new ways of treating old favourites. It is very much a global event.

So I am very pleased to announce that Weekend Herb Blogging will be expanding - from WHB#261 an Italian version will be running alongside the current version. Regular contributor Brii from Briiblog will be organising the event so not only will we able to enjoy the english version you'll be able to explore the world of Italian blogs and Italian ingredients.

As part of this 5th birthday celebration, everyone that enters this edition of Weekend Herb Blogging will go into the running to receive one of my favourite cookbooks from this year. As I couldn't split the two, whoever gets drawn out of the hat will be able to choose from

Yotam Ottolenghi's Ottolenghi: The Cookbook or Plenty

Cherry Chocolate and Stout Loaf

The lovely Susan from The Well-Seasoned Cook is hosting this edition of Weekend Herb Blogging. Here in Victoria, we're just about to start the all too brief cherry season and while I haven't got fresh cherries I have found something that's almost as good - dried Royal cherries.
