Here's the complete, I hope, list of all those who posted an entry for the Is My Blog Burning? day. If I forgot anyone, pleas send me an e-mail and I'll add you ASAP. I also included a link to my entry in case anyone wants to paste the links somewhere else. You'll also find, after the links another soup recipe Hande, in her words "a half-German living in Italy", sent me via e-mail which I'm happy to post.
I hope you had fun too coming up with the recipes and reading what the others came up with. I sure did. Some of you have written to me suggesting we repeat this "blog cooking experiment". I think it would be nice too. The question is when? and Which "theme"? I would also suggest that, if we want to turn this once off cooking day into something more regular, it might be nice for somebody different for each time to call a theme. Let me know what you think.
and a link I missed, sorry Elise!

Deb's Asparagus and rice soup
Hande's Pumpkin Soup
Pumpkin (Hokkaido or Muscat, if you can find, but actually any kind will do, even the “Halloween” type)
Slice the onion, dice the pumpkin, cook both in some olive oil. Add finely sliced ginger. Add some brown sugar and let caramelize. Add diced apple, vegetable broth, a dash of orange juice (the liquids a bit more than just to cover the solids). Let cook until pumpkin becomes soft (depends on the kind, around 15 min). With a handheld blender grind/mix everything, chunky or finer, as you like. It should be a thick soup (enough to support the following stay on the surface!).
* Roast some pumpkinseeds (not the white ones, the greenish inners) in a pan without oil. Decorate soup with these and also with a spoonful of pumpkinseed-oil (the best being the “Steirisch” from Austria – that is the region and I think also stands for the sort of pumpkin, which is used solely for the oil).
