6th Anniversary

6th anniversary-DSC_0013

FOODalogue quietly passed its 6th anniversary this month … no fanfare, no giveaways … not even me, who birthed it, thought much about it. I guess because it has become so much a part of my life and identity so it was just another day.

But, I didn’t want to lose the opportunity to thank those of you who have chosen to occasionally pull a chair up to my virtual table and enjoy the food and conversation.  Anyone who puts themselves out there day-after-day, month-after-month, year-after-year, knows just how important the interaction is.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ♥♥♥  Mi casa es su casa.

How to Make a Tapas Party with Foods from Chile

I’ve been to Chile twice. I loved the country and I loved the food!  So, I was delighted to be invited by Kitchen Play to participate in a blogging event with Foods from Chile. The #CookChilean challenge went like this … they sent me a mystery box of food … I offered readers the opportunity to suggest what I should make with the ingredients … and now I’m happy to reveal that the winner is Erica of My Colombian Recipes who suggested ‘seafood tapas’.

Those 2 words gave me the idea (and excuse) to make a tapas party so I invited a couple of wine-toting friends over for a fiesta. “Tapas” are universal these days and the food ingredients I received lent themselves perfectly to the “little dish” theme.

The “Stuff It” Round-Up from the Creative Cooking Crew

This was a fun challenge. “Stuff it” proved to be a very interesting theme. It even became a recurring pun in some of the narratives and we got a good laugh here and there. But, most importantly, the Creative Cooking Crew kicked you-know-what! Continue Reading
