Do you remember what you liked to eat when you were five? Your food preferences have likely become wider and more sophisticated. Today, the Recipe Redux turns five, and yes, there will be an abundance of healthy and delicious recipes posted on the 21st and 22nd. However, this month’s theme is NOT food focused. Rather we’re celebrating each other! I think this underscores a major benefit of our community, going beyond posting a recipe to a blog by engaging with fellow bloggers via comments, pinning, tweeting and ALL THINGS shared.
Here’s our challenge: For ReDux’s birthday month, let’s celebrate each other! Pick a fellow ReDuxer, go to their blog and either make one of their recipes or create one of your own inspired by theirs. In your post, give your readers a little intro to this blogger, what you like about this blogger/their blog and either link to their recipe you made or share your brand new “inspired” creation.
Before I reveal my pick, I do want to give a shout out to the Recipe Redux founders Regan Jones (of Healthy Aperture, Regan Miller Jones, Inc, RDs 4 Disclosure), Serena Ball and Deanna Segrave-Daly (both of Teaspoons of Communications). These ladies have blazed the trail to promote healthy eating via social media platforms! Thank you for your vision, smarts and support.
Now, this Redux is a cake walk, except for this: I have to pick just one member! The Recipe Redux has a myriad of talented bloggers (I think we are over 150 members strong). I could have chosen any one of them. So, how did I go about selecting just one? I tried to let the choice come to me spontaneouly. Here’s what happened. During June, I’ve been honing my grilling skills; every night I’ve been cooking outdoors. But last Wednesday, storms wrecked havoc with my evening food prep ritual leaving me a bit lost for what to make. I reached for my favorite go to recipes and the result was this…
.. an instant reminder of how much I adore Sonali Ruder’s recipes! Head over to her blog, the foodie physician, and get the recipe for Southwest Shepherd’s Pie. She takes this classic comfort food and makes it lighter without sacrificing flavor! It was a perfect meal for a wet and rainy weeknight. The recipe also appears in her book, Natural Baby Food, has been the #1 hot new release in its category on Amazon! I love that all of her books include recipes the whole family can enjoy together.
Sonali describes herself as a physician, chef, recipe developer and board certified foodie! This combination of talent gives her tremendous insight and I think it’s why she’s one savvy food blogger. I have just one question for Sonali, Where do you find the time?
