It's time for another secret recipe reveal day! The secret recipe club was started by Amanda from Amanda's Cookin' It has become very popular and there is currently a waiting list to join! I am in Group D and will be blogging a secret recipe post at the end of each month. The idea is simple - each month you are assigned a blog which you keep secret hence the name and make a recipe from that blog. Someone else will have your blog too. All posts are revealed at the same time on a set date. As Amanda says, its a fun way to discover new blogs, make new friends and step outside of our comfort zones.
This month, I have been assigned lifeandkitchen as my secret blog and I absolutely love it. There are so many recipes there that appeal to me particularly the baker in me :) I have to admit I'm always slightly worried that I will be assigned a blog that has no baking in it but have not come across that yet. There is a clear recipe index on her blog with gorgeous photos for each post. The recipes are easy to follow and I've already bookmarked a few other recipes to try.
For this challenge I chose these oatmeal, M&M and peanut butter cookies - I don't think you even need to ask why if you are a frequent visitor to my blog! Coincidentally, I chose peanut butter chip pillows for my first secret recipe post. Do you see a trend here? :)
