Hurrah For Bloggers!

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to actually cook some of those recipes I’ve bookmarked from your blogs. I promised myself that I would incorporate your offerings  into my weekly menu and so far I’ve not fallen off the wagon and pretty much stayed the course.

Here’s the latest:

First up is a delicious recipe I found over at Nod and Wink. Slow Scrambled Eggs With Rosemary and Capers.  I have to admit, I was a little leery of the flavor combination of rosemary and capers in eggs, but I have to tell you this was delicious.  Loved it. You can find the recipe by clicking HERE. I did exactly what George said not to do; I overcooked the eggs a bit. I rushed it at the end by putting a lid on the pan for the final 30 seconds and left the lid on about 30 seconds too long. 🙂 Even though the texture wasn’t perfect the flavor sure was. I served this on top of English Muffins.  This recipe is now in my permanent database. Thank you so much George  for posting this on Nod and Wink and my apologies for that photo that doesn’t do your wonderful recipe justice.

I served these eggs with Potatoes O’Brien (also in the photo above). I found this recipe over at  Cooking Tip Of  The Day. I have been known to buy Oreida Potatoes O’Brien every once in a while and I have no idea why I’ve never made them myself. I didn’t have any green pepper, so used a yellow bell pepper. And of course these are delicious. To view her original post click HERE.  Thanks to Linda for this good solid recipe.

And last, but not least, look at this beautiful salad. I found this idea over at Mango and Tomato. Thanks to Olga I was reminded to use up the last of those Hearts of Palm I had in the fridge. This was a delicious and very healthy mid-week lunch for me. I did add a splash of Seasoned Rice Vinegar to the olive oil dressing. You can view the original post and a much prettier photo by clicking HERE. Thanks Olga!

So thank you my friends for these wonderful recipes. They’ve all gone from “bookmarked” to a permanent record in my recipe database.

Hurrah for bloggers!

  24. This was a great interview. I enjoy Dave’s blog daily. He has a passion for his blog and it shows. I think that is what really draws his loyal readers. He enjoys digressing and it is fun. I told him in my last comment that he digresses because he really lives and experiences life-which means he has a lot to share.
    I am looking forward to his posts while down in the islands. He will be in rare form.

    • As always thanks for stopping by Velva
