I've made some of my closest friends because of cooking and food, including Zaar member - NCMysteryshopper - who, I am proud to say, has asked me to do the honor of being her taste-tester for many a new cocktail she has posted.
Here's to food, drink, friends and being merry!
Love to take the local, fresh stuff (we have lots of farms and markets here) and use them in unique ways. Spices and spicy are very popular in our home. We will eat most anything at least once. It says it all when I tell you that my 9 year old gulps down a plate of raw fish like it's a plate of french fries!
My personal favorite foods are lobster (anyway it comes-but the best was a burlap bag full of them straight out of the cold Atlantic ocean!), crab - any kind, raw or steamed oysters, sushi (SEE, I do need to be near the ocean...), Thai anything, Indian anything, but my very most favorite styles are Latin or new Southern foods. My friends say their favorite dishes out of my kitchen are the Benevolent Burrito (yes, it was born in a parking lot after a Grateful Dead show) and the Fried Green Tomato & Bacon Sandwich. Neither of those are very fancy but they are good old comfort food with a twist.
After years of using Recipezaar, I have finally started posting some of my own recipes and reviews here. After being reprimanded by 3 SUPERmembers - Leslie, PaulaG & NCMystershopper - I was shamed into it. I had the pleasure of meeting Leslie and Paula in person for lunch here in Asheville (thanks to Cheryl). It was such an honor! I now understand the importance of reviewing a recipe that you try - sorry guys...! UPDATE: I have NOW had the pleasure of meeting even MORE Zaarites! MamasKitchen, ~Leslie~, Chef V, and Mommy Diva were all part of NcMysteryshopper's wedding in Costa Rica! so that was really quite a treat! We've all become quite close and all because of Recipezaar!!!
I do hope to find time to post more recipes in the near future but with such a busy life, please forgive me if it takes a while. It's great to feel like part of a community! Thanks for all the GREAT recipes everyone!
