My poor co-workers, so spoiled after 4 years of getting home baked goodies every month for staff meeting – last month, they got donuts from the local bakery with a “too hot to bake!” note stuck to the box. There were some sad faces around the office (I notice they still ate the donuts, though). But this month, I showed up with these Black Bottom Coconut Macaroons and suddenly everyone was happy again.
Why is pepperoni reserved only for pizza? It has so much to offer other dishes.
It’s got a lovely, spicy kick that adds lots of flavor, even when only a small amount is used. And, turkey pepperoni is just about as good as the real thing, so it can really liven up a healthy meal.
I recently signed up with the Barefoot Bloggers, just in time for their 1 year anniversary! This group tries out recipes by the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten, twice a month. I figured this would be a fun way to try some new recipes that I might not otherwise choose.
The first May recipe was chosen by Kate of Warm Olives and Cool Cocktails, and it’s one that’s right up my alley – Tuna Salad. Tuna Salad, you’re thinking? How boring! Not hardly.
