Turkish-Inspired Borlotti Bean and Lamb Stew with Cheesy Eggplant Purée - A Guest Post by Rosa Mayland of Rosa's Yummy Yums
With wildly eclectic interests that range from heavy-metal music to homey domesticity, Rosa Mayland has a personal style of natural magnetism. It is no wonder that her blog, Rosa's Yummy Yums, approaching its sixth year, should have such a wide and devoted following. Her Blogger profile alone boasts over 66,000 views. This is a girl who clearly gets around all parts of the world through her kitchen. And when she is not innovating special recipes to cook, bake, and photograph, Rosa takes her talents to the road where her camera revels in the Swiss countryside around Geneva, where she makes her home. We are routinely treated to the visual splendors of weekend getaways with their dazzling natural beauty, often in pictorial essays, but sometimes tucked into her writings on all things sweet and savory, mixed with her very wise, soulful, or entertaining observations of the world at large.
Back in her kitchen, Rosa, of English and French-Swiss extraction, broadens our horizons farther as she carries us along with recipes which emphasize sound nutrition, natural ingredients, and economy of table, without sacrificing flavor, hedonism, and originality. A strong advocate of home cooking, Rosa never fails to serve her large readership generous portions of all the pleasures created as mistress over her own pots and pans. Despite her prodigious kitchen and blogging output (with over 1,000 posts), she is always the very first friendly face to comment on your own latest culinary creation. I'm not quite sure if there is anyone out there who doesn't know who Rosa Mayland is, but to those scant few, let hers be the first friendly blog you comment on to start your day.
I am very happy to present Rosa and her outrageously inventive and flavorful stew which she has created as a guest blogger in celebration of My Legume Love Affair - Kicking Off Year 4.
