… I had a sneaking suspicion that this months random recipes would be a little more random than usual and you’ve not let me down… sometimes I fear that i’ve pushed you too far but each month you always surprise me with the love and for that I am ever grateful…
… and I suppose I’ll start at the beginning with the random recipe and book that inspired me to come up with this months theme and that’s my own recipe for croque monsieur taken from Mark Bittman’s amazing How to Cook Everything that I found in my step-mum’s collection…
here’s Ruth from Makey-Cakey and some rather naughty but nice looking deep fried Torrijas taken from her mum’s collection and a book called The Festive Food of Spain… I so want to sink my teeth into these!
here’s random recipe virgin Ang from the very stylish looking My Golden Pear and a recipe for Chocolate and Apple Cake taken from The Fairtrade Everyday Cookbook which she got from her friend Sam after a lengthy tease about a man called Dom she’s met on the internet…
och eye and next up is my wee scottish maiden Lou from Please Do Not Feed The Animals and a brrrrilliant recipe for Spezzatino Di Cinghiale (pork stew) from Twelve by Tessa Kiros which she got from fellow blogger Little Macaroon

The 'pinny shot' wins it for me…its a cracker!

I had great fun with this challenge – see you next time.
Dom, fantastic. I love the stories and two years is amazing. Gutted I didn't manage this one, I had something lined up but nothing has gone according to plan so far this year and I just ran out of time.
Excellent round up! There are some very interesting recipes, as usual. Love the apron!

Don't know if I was that popular at home posting the man in the pinny …..but hey he deserves to get a mention now and again he's a great cook. What a great round up will now spend most of Feb giving them a run in my own kitchen, the thing I love is that they are all so different.
Great selection, and love the fella in the frilly apron!
Wonderful roundup! Thanks again for hosting Dom – Random Recipes is always a blast 🙂
I really enjoyed taking part! Looking forward to the next challenge. Thanks for hosting Dom!

Fabulous round up and I am delighted to be taking part again. I was distraught last month when I couldn't participate. Okay, I was very, very sad. Can't wait to have a look at all the lovely entries! Here's to year three!
