Hi, I'm Kim

Hi, I’m Kim Christensen, M.Om., Dipl.OM, L.Ac. I’m a licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and owner of Constellation Acupuncture & Healing Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Back before going to school and becoming a healthcare practitioner, Affairs of Living was my creative outlet while healing from chronic health issues. There's big changes coming to the site - it will soon be the home of my new health coaching practice! Stay tuned.

August SOS Kitchen Challenge Round Up: Mint

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 to soups, all using mint. However, I must admit that my eyes went immediately to dessert. Ricki and I are both big fans of chocolate, and this challenge certainly provided us with lots of drool-worthy recipes: 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?

This linky list is now closed.

Hi reader! My schedule as full-time grad student with two part-time jobs doesn't allow me the time to manage comments. I hope you enjoy what you find and can figure out answers to any questions you may have. xo
