Article Excerpt:

Last month's SOS Kitchen Challenge, hosted by Ricki from Diet, Dessert, and Dogs and me, featured none other than everyone's favorite invasive herb: mint! We received so many wonderful sweet and savory contributions from bloggers all around the world. I found myself drooling regularly whenever I'd check the Linky for updates.

We saw everything from dips to salad dressings to bean dishes using mint, as well as wide assortment of delicious desserts.  As a devoted chocolate lover, I must confess that my favorite way to use mint is in combination with chocolate. Our readers certainly did not disappoint me and provided many delicious ways to combine two of my favorite ingredients: Mint-Chip Ice Cream, Maca Mint Blondies, Frozen Mint Mojito Avocado Truffles, Not-So-Faux After Eights, and Coconut Milk Mint Chip Ice Cream.  Amazing!

Check out the Linky below for a listing of all the recipe submissions for last month's challenge. You may discover a new blogger and find your new favorite recipe, and that's what this challenge is all about.  Thanks to everyone who participated, and we hope you'll join us for this month's challenge, which will be announced on Tuesday. Any guesses on what September's ingredient will be?
