It is time once again to announce the winners of this month’s Royal Foodie Joust – a foodie event hosted on
The LeftoverQueen/FoodieBlogroll Forum! Where each month features recipes using 3 ingredients in common. These ingredients are chosen by the previous month’s winner. This event is sponsored by Ben from What’s Cooking?. This means you have a chance to win Tupperware products from Ben as well as a personalized apron for the first place winner from yours truly!!!

This month’s ingredients were chosen by Erin of The Skinny Gourmet, they were Apricots, Ginger and Butter. We had a wide variety of entries from sweet to savory with flavor influences spanning the globe! But there can be only one (each month)!!!! :)

And this month, we passed the apron to my dear friend and Greek cooking officianado : Peter of Kalofagas with his totally rockin’ entry of
Apricot and Pistachio Cake:
