Mangia Mondays:: August Features

Welcome to Mangia Mondays, the weekly blog hop I co-host with Kristin of Delightfully Dowling!
This week I'm sharing some highlights of the inspiring recipes linked up this month.

Through this recipe for a Summer Vegetable Tart I was so happy to find the blog The Alchemist - be sure to check it out.  This tart features homemade spinach-basil pesto, strips of zucchini, corn, tomatoes and mozzarella, all on a puff pastry crust.  Yum!

Speaking of zucchini, The Single Nester's Stuffed Zucchini sounds deee-lish too!

Patricia at ButterYum shows us how to make Homemade Gnocchi….how good does this look with a brown butter and sage sauce?

I love this easy recipe for Shrimp en Papillote (cooked in parchment paper) from Home Cooking that has a bit of an Asian flair and is cooked with veggies.


How about these Banana Split Wraps from Heather's French Press?  I could justify eating one of these for dessert every night!

For a special occasion (a birthday - an anniversary - a Monday??) I have to try Acasarella's beautiful Brownie Raspberry Cake based on a boxed brownie mix!  Love the presentation!

Chocolate, Chocolate and More linked up Birthday Cake Milkshakes that in my house might be renamed Back-To-School Milkshakes!

Thank you to everyone who linked up recipes and food posts in the month of August!
