A mother should not admit to having a favorite child.  I should not admit to having a favorite You Buy, I Cook  project. But if I did, this one would be it!  It all started with an article claiming that orange is the color of 2012. Orange, just happens to be my favorite color, ever, no doubt!  After an impromptu facebook chat with my friend Angie, I decided to host a special edition of You Buy, I Cook – For the Love of Orange.

The lovely ladies (in order of appearance) Alla, Angie, Anna, and Kellie came to my kitchen with orange, and other color goodies and we set to cook!

Scroll down to see what we had on the menu.  Interested in a particular “recipe”? Let me know!

The menu:

Carrots with 1000 island dressing
Orange bell pepper salad with tomatoes and cucumbers
Roasted salmon with Persimmon and Kumquat Salsa with Cilantro and Jalapeno

Red and White Quinoa with Sauteed Portabello Mushrooms and Asparagus
Stuffed Orange Peppers with Quinoa
Orange Sorbet with Dark Chocolate Chunks in waffle bowls
Sparkling Peach Wine, Sangria, Iced Tea

Thank you for making this such a delicious celebration of orange!
