Bookmarked Recipes 2

Here's the second round up of of Bookmarked Recipes and this week we have some more great recipes from some more great bloggers:

Ryan from Ryan's Recipe Blog in the UK made a favourite of mine: American Pancakes topped off with bananas and strawberry jam which he had seen made on Ready Steady Cook.

Ricki from Toronto, Canada from Diet, Dessert and Dogs made a beautiful and delicious looking Mock Green Papaya Salad from Vegetarian Times Magazine.

Nilmandra from Soy and Pepper, also based in the UK, made what looks like a very elegant and tasty dish: Smoked Salmon and New Potatoes with lemon crème fraîche that she saw on "Jamie at Home".

Ohiomom, based in Cleveland Ohio, from Cooking in Cleveland made a beautiful Coconut butter pecan pound cake from "Pillsbury - The Complete Book of Baking".

Shira from Petit Pois made some Fennel braised with Thyme and Black Olives which is adapted from Molly Stevens' All About Braising and includes some new fresh garlic in the dish.

Dell of Cooking and the City from Melbourne, Australia joined the round up again with a fantastic Madeira Cake recipe she found on the BBC website by James Martin.

Finally, my own contribution, which shows that Dell and I were on the same train of thought this week: lemon madeira cake as my birthday cake!
