#CookBlogShare Week 22 Round Up and Week 23 Linky

After a week away I have missed writing my #CookBlogShare weekly round up. However I was delighted to have free wi-fi while we were away so was able to see what everybody was sharing.

I want to say a huge tank you to Mandy at Sneaky Veg for hosting in my place while I was away. This week I am looking forward to hosting the linky and getting tempted by all of your delicious creations! But first let me tell you which recipes were my favourite from last week.

I usually share my four favourite recipes, but as I was away and missed a week I am going to share my six favourite recipes. Plus I really could not narrow it down!

So without further ado, here are my favourite recipes from week 22 of CookBlogShare...

First up are these fun little Mashed Potatoes with Spinach men with mushroom hats. We love mashed potatoes with spinach but I adore how Everyday Healthy Recipes have transformed this everyday food into something more exciting and inviting. I will definitely be making these for not just the kids but for all of us!

Next up is a delicate genoise birthday cake. This delicious Lemon Mousse Cake from Only Crumbs Remain is not only a centre piece cake but is also contains a mousse that contains aquafaba making it free from raw eggs. Aquafaba is an ingredient that I have never used but after reading this recipe of a favourite cake of mine I will be keeping an eye out for it!

The next recipe that I chose is a dish that I know my whole family would love! This Very Green Pasta Salad from the Mostly Vegan is full of ingredients that my whole family enjoy. This dish combines broccolini (tenderstem broccoli), asparagus and artichokes with pasta and a pistachio mint pesto which sounds amazing! This is a must try!

We all love a good pudding and puddings which do not contain sugars are less guilt ridden! This Sugar and Dairy Free Date Nectar and Banana Cake from Mummy Mishaps ticks all of the boxes! I adore the banana and peanut butter combination and being both dairy an sugar free makes this cake my ideal cake!

When I lived in Gran Canaria I loved patatas bravas so when I saw that Sneaky Veg had made some Mild Kid Friendly Patatas Bravas I could not wait to read. These milder patatas bravas look and sound so good, I know that I am going to have to try making these and introducing them to the children!

Last but not least is an amazing anti gravity cake from Snap Happy Bakes. This Anti Gravity Galaxy Cake looks and sounds like the perfect birthday cake! Galaxy chocolate is such a creamy chocolate that is simply irresistible! Not only does this cake look outstanding but it sounds so tempting, I simply do not think that I could stop at one piece!
