Added to my recipe box 5-15-2010

I meant to post this yesterday but I was actually trying to be a good student and try to get my homework done ahead of time.  I can't wait until I'm done.  One more year, one more year. 
This week, I found so many recipes I wanted to attempt.  Luckily, my friend Anna shared a copy of her Dessert Magazine.  I tried very hard to copy each recipe.   If you have a chance to pick it up, I would.  This focused on Asian ingredients like matcha.  
This week Healthy Delicious shared a wonderful potato salad recipe that did not include mayo.  Yes, you heard me right.  No mayo.  Instead of using mayo, she used Greek yogurt.  What a nifty way to reduce the amount of fat and still enjoy potato salad.
Food Practice shared a nice twist to pesto.  She was trying to clean out her fridge and decided to create a new recipe.  I know that feeling.  I have been trying to work through my freezer and pantry for months.  This week she created a pistachio cranberry pesto.  I am so used to pine nuts but this a nice change to the norm.
When I was in Miami, I had the pleasure of trying some Venezuelan food.  One of the dishes I tried was Arepas.  I have been craving that since.  I was catching up on the various blogs on FoodBuzz and the Village Cook posted a Arepas recipe.  I was so excited.  I can't wait to try this.
Lately, I had this love affair with goat cheese and figs.  When How Sweet Eats posted a goat cheese and honey stuffed fig muffin, I had to copy down this recipe.  I liked how she incorporated olive oil.  I have been searching for some good recipes that utilize olive oils in sweets.
