  3. Happy national vegetarian week! What a great idea to link to lots of recipes as a way of marking the week - I think the salad looks particularly attractive! and thanks for linking to my cookies :-)

  4. Thanks for the link :) The rolls I made were chocolate and hazelnut, but almond and cinnamon sound equally yummy and I’m sure you could substitute them! I will need to go and have a wee look at all the links you have posted now!

  5. Forgot to say...I like your new look!

  6. What a great post and thanks for the link! I checked out all the recipes and discovered some fantastic blogs. You're lucky to have a veg week. I think here we only get a day!

  7. Hi there. Fun finding your blog and finding out about National Vegetarian Week too. Thanks for including my arugula salad. I'm not a vegetarian, but maybe I should be because I have more recipes for salad and vegetables than all the other categories combined.

  8. Great roundup. I'm looking forward to getting some vitamins this week.

    Thanks for including me!

  9. thanks for the link! all these recipes sound great.

  10. Thanks for visiting Janelle.
    The tiramisu looks great!

    Hi Johanna,Happy Vegetarian Week right back at you! And yeah, that salad does look good! I have added your yummy cookies to my recipe book!

    Hi ScottishVegan, I posted my blog late at night and was too busy looking at the lovely step-by-step photos to pay proper attention! I have changed the link from Almond and Cinnamon Rolls to Chocolate and Hazelnut Rolls. Sorry, sorry!

  11. atxvegn thanks for visiting and I am glad you have found some new blogs. I hoped that might happen, it seems greedy to keep all these great blogs to myself!

    Hi Kalyn, thanks for stopping by and saying hello! I hope you come back and visit me again soon! Your salad looked great! I keep saying it, but I am going to take the plunge and try those Kalamata olives!

  12. Hi Tammy, thanks for visiting! I am going to be trying your Tzatziki Dip with Pita chips next time it is movie night and maybe some of Flying Vegan's Baked Tofu Fries. It will certainly be a step up from a bag of crisps! I spend ages cooking meals, but never think to prepare snacks, it's just off to the shop for those!

    Hi Stephanie, thanks for visiting. I love your new banner over at Cumin and Coriander!

  13. What a great-looking bunch of recipes! Happy Vegetarian Week to you, and thanks for including my coleslaw!

  14. Vegetarian week? How great! I wish we had that! This round up of recipes looks great!

  15. You go girl !!! I love the new heading of your blog. Too fun!

  16. Hi Susan, I was glad to add your coleslaw, a nice tangy side dish, but I'll have to leave the walnuts out for Graham.

    SimpleVeggie it is a pity that you don't have vegetarian week, maybe there could be a blog veggie day set up?

    Deb, hello there! Glad you like the new banner, I spelled out the letters in tomato juice especially!
