Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits

Moist Pina Colada Cake and Remembering an Old Friend

February 13, 2012

I asked my hubby what cake he wanted for his birthday party. Ok, I made him a Mango Pie for his actual birthday but that was before his party. He told me he wanted a Kathie Jackson Pina Colada Cake. She is an old friend from the days of farming and he has never forgotten [...]


Featured Entries for Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits

February 9, 2012

We have had some great entries the last couple of weeks for Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits.  Thought I would share some of the most visited. One of my favorite healthy bloggers, Real Food Forager, had a lot of hits on 5 Reasons to Make Sourdough Bread.  I learn something new from her every time I visit. [...]


Deep Dish Mango Pie

February 6, 2012

  My husband had a birthday last week.  He is really old…..haha.  My, my, my……he can walk in the door after work and my heart skips a beat……after all these years. This week, we celebrated the anniversary of our first date….36 years ago.  That was on February 2nd and I love to hear him tell [...]


Nine Pepper Soup

January 30, 2012

I promise that this is not as hot as it sounds.  I wasn’t really intending to put so many peppers in it…really.  It just sort of happened.  My goal was a good vegetable and chicken soup…….I opened the refrigerator and started pulling stuff out….chopping stuff up.  And….I was not disappointed.  Threw a little cheese and [...]


Last Week’s Favorite Blog Party Entries

January 28, 2012

Well, I am sure if you are on Pinterest or Stumble Upon or if you did any blog hopping last week, you probably saw this awesome post.  I saw it everywhere and it was the most visited at Permanent Posies.  I wish I could eat this stuff.  I think it would be the crack of [...]


Hearty Vegetable and Turkey Sausage Frittata (turned Omelet)

January 23, 2012

A frittata is quite similar to an omelet, in that it is also made of eggs in a skillet.  Really, the only differences include whipping air into the eggs, cooking it without folding, cooking at a lower temperature, and cooking it a little longer.  The frittata gets more done on one side  and is often [...]


Spicy Gluten Free Texas Trash Chex Mix

January 16, 2012

There is no need for a holiday to have a little Spicy Texas Trash Chex Mix, though for some reason, we only make it during the Christmas holidays.  It was an annual tradition at our house and the taste of it brings me back to childhood. I now make it gluten-free since my daughter is [...]


Italian Northern Bean Soup with a Touch of Parmigiano Reggiano

January 9, 2012

Since I brought the Parmesan cheese home straight from Parma, Italy, I have been anxious to cook with it.  However, I came home with a swollen knee, jet lag and a general lack of desire to do anything productive.  We went 80 mph in Italy (well literally because that was the speed limit) visiting the [...]


Happy New Year’s Black Eyed Peas

January 2, 2012

Even though I am in Vicenza, Italy….I had to cook some good ‘ole Southern Black-Eyed Peas.  I am not superstitious (at all) but I love traditions.  I hope Italy can become a tradition.  Just saying! I normally cook a pot of dried peas in the Crock Pot, but did I mention that I am in [...]


Mexican Pasta with Poblano Queso

December 26, 2011

Whenever I cook pasta, I always cook extra and put it in the freezer so that I can pull out a few cups for a quick meal.   So, I did just that the other day.  After browning the meat, it was just a matter of opening cans, melting the cheese and throwing it all together.  [...]
