It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, which makes getting back into the routine akin to starting back at the gym after a few weeks off. The first workout, or in my case blog post, is the hardest to knock out. Lucky for me, one of my sister Philly Social Media Moms and kindred-spirit food fanatic, Heather McCurdy caught my eye on Facebook the other day with these tiny tacos. I am happy to send you her way, because not only is her blog fun to read, she has a bevy of delicious, simple to prepare recipes (served up with a side of sass) and more bite size app recipes in the oven. Thanks to her, my re-entry into READ.eat.DEW.write. is a Super Bowl of fun.
Before I send you over to Real the Kitchen and Beyond, scan your eyes south for a few more recipes to boost your Super Bowl repertoire. And, to satisfy those guests who really don’t give a hoot about the big game.
In the apps for dummies category, I have a super simple recipe made with mid-size portobello mushrooms, Whole Foods spinach and artichoke dip (packed in tubs and possibly in an artichoke-only version as well; in my stores they keep this type of stuff near the prepared foods counter), sun-dried tomato slivers and shredded manchego or locatelli cheese. I made this on a whim once and it was better than I expected. The steps are ridiculously easy and they look quite pretty when done. Alas, for this post, I don’t have an exact shot of the final product. However, the photo below will get your taste buds incentivized. I’ll try to make a batch ASAP and circle back with pics. In the meantime, what you really need to know is under the photo.
