Simone's Kitchen

And the winner is and Monthly Mingle Roundup….

With wildly varying favorites it was quite a difficult task this month to choose a winner for the combined photochallenge and Monthly Mingle that we had last month. Such beautiful entries too! And all of them delicious… πŸ˜‰



The winner is this delicious Rocky Road recipe by The kitchen Witch. While we didn’t all agree on the ‘best’ image among the entries, most of us had this particular image in our top three, making it by points gathered the most popular image and therefore making it the winner. For the runner up of this month we have to name Asha of Fork Spoon Knife with this beautiful pumpkin and pecan cheesecake!

AshaI could really give you a lot more beautiful entries but if you want to see them all feel free to have a browse around the entries through the links below.

I’ve decided to move the new photochallenge a little further ahead in the month, as I haven’t been able to shoot the challenge myself just yet. I know what it’s gonna be but I just have to work out the details! So you will soon see the challenge come up. The plus on this one is that you will have until the end of february to finish the challenge instead of the usual end of the month. Partially because I will be traveling to far away destinations in february and will have no internet access for a month… O blish… ! Lol…

And as usual the thanks go to our panel of esteemed judges:

Meeta from What’s for lunch Honey

Jenn from Jenncuisine

Kay from kayotickitchen
