PC#45 Suggestions Please...

Time flies and it's almost time for the next Paper Chef.
First up, a special thanks to Deeba of
Passionate About Baking for stepping in as our guest judge last month.
As usual we are asking for suggestions to add to the pool of ingredients for selection. Feel free to nominate ingredients that you would like to cook with, just try not to make them too obscure - remember that we all do have to use them & that means trying to find them!
So far we have:
rocket, almonds, lentils, cream, prawns, pasta, pine nuts, salami, dried tomatoes, brown sugar, bread, butter milk, golden syrup, balsamic vinegar, goat's cheese, green tea, tuna, lamb, grapes, mushrooms, yoghurt, beans, spring onions, green tomatoes, carrots, broccolini, blood oranges, olives, mangoes, asparagus, cashew nuts, wasabi, cornmeal, cheese, pineapple, beef, fennel, lemon, honey, mint, beetroot, flour, kangaroo/venison meat, boneless chicken, green bell pepper, garlic, orange roughy, eggplant, leeks, strawberries.

Update: Tofu, Rutabaga, Queso Fresco, Figs, Prawns, pasta.

Next week winner of the last Paper Chef, Janie from
Musingri, will select 3 random ingredients from this list and a fourth ingredient/theme of her own.
Start thinking & suggesting!

A quick roundup this will be because this month we have quite a few entries here, I am very happy that so many of you decided to join in the fun of Paper Chef. Thank You! And then I want to thank the ever so nice Deeba of Passionate About Baking who at very short notice agreed to help me out and be this month's Judge, please take a look at her really nice food blog, it's full of gorgeous recipes and photos so it is well worth it! But now over to the roundup, I hope you will be as delighted as I am about all the different dishes that the participants have come up with, using this month's four ingredients ricotta, chocolate, ginger and an ingredients of choice as long as it had something to do with Fall.

First out is Marcus of I could even eat a baby deer who made a lovely Chanterelle Toast with Chocolate Ricotta and Jellied Ginger.

Dale made these tasty Pumpkin-Ricotta Cookies with Dark Chocolate and Candied Ginger that you will find on his blog Home on the Range.

Ginger of Tried 'n' Tasted has made some great Apple Ginger Cupcakes for us to feast upon!

Ginger Cheesecake with a Chocolate base sounds good, doesn't it? It's Mike of Spikey Mikey who has created this treat.

Anna of Very Small Anna's entry is a gorgeous Spiced Pumpkin-Ricotta Budino with Cacao Nibs, mmmm.

I was delighted to find an entry from Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen, she often participates in the HotM and now also here with her lovely Chocolate Drizzled Pineapple and Ginger Paneer/ Ricotta Cookies

Ri of MUSINGRI created some incredible Ginger, Ricotta, Pumpkin Wontons, they remind me a little of our tortelli di zucca!
