This recipe is part of the monthly Secret Recipe Club “assignment!” Every month you get a name of a blog and you need to choose ANY recipe from that blog and then blog about that recipe by a date. It’s a secret because the blog owner does not know you are doing this until the reveal date.
My secret blog this month was I Was Born to Cook, which is written by Melissa from NJ. I spent hours and hours on Melissa’s blog. She write a fabulous food blog that she started after her daughter Bella was born. Before then she was having trouble conceiving and wrote about it. It was hard to read at times but it was a happy ending.
There were many recipes that i wanted to make from Melissa’s blog, but when i came across this Chilled Cucumber Soup i knew this was the recipe for me. I love it. Will be making again.
