Our Best Bites

Do you have any cooking disaster secrets?
I do...........like the time I put in the peeling from the garlic clove in the chili instead of the clove........I didn't know. I thought that was the good part.........I know....what can I say? Now had this blog been around way back when I didn't know about garlic cloves, I would have had a much better chili.

Kate and Sarah with Our Best Bites has a very user friendly cooking blog. I'm a visual learner, so all their great photos of each step keeps me calm and confident that I too can make whatever delicious meal they've posted.
I also want to thank them for becoming one of my sponsors.
As mentioned, their site is very user friendly. They have a link for Tips and Tutorials..........God love'm. In fact they have a soft spot for cooks like me because they even have a HOW TO for garlic.......see. This could have saved me years of ridicule.........my friend Marla still laughs at me. If she could see me now.......I even have a garlic press.........and the jumbo size jar of chopped garlic in the fridge.
I LOVE seeing all the ingredients needed for a recipe. I don't know why, but it takes the "too hard" factor out of it.
These lovely ingredients make this yummy looking dressing.......... Creamy Lime Cilantro Dressing. The name says "don't make me, I'm too difficult" but after seeing their photos........I can do it! If I remember correctly, they used this on their Chili Lime Steak Salad.......OH MY!How about this Thai Peanut number? This is something I plan to make very soon!
Great desserts too. They really have a bit of everything on their site. The Pizzookie........I've had this at a pizza parlor once and never once thought about making it at home.............until now!

I think I have ALL those things in my fridge RIGHT NOW!Love their photos............
You're probably wondering why all these eggs are wrapped in fabric.
Cute........but...........That fabric is actually silk ties........Why do they have eggs wrapped ties? Did I miss this decor idea in the latest Country Living?

Is it some new "green" way to use your old neck ties?

OH DEAR MOTHER OF PEARL.............. can you believe it? The dye transfers onto the eggs. Is that the most original idea of 2009 so far? They have a TUTORIAL, so we can all copy them and have wonderful decorated eggs for our Easter table to impress everyone around us. Stunned..........


Our poor husbands will not have one tie left in their closets...........they needed new ones anyway didn't they?

Enjoy visiting these two fun gals. Don't forget to tell them how you found them..........while there you won't be surprised by the cute blog design.......Shannon my gal from Eight Crazy designed theirs too. :)
Oh.....one more thing. Kellie from Don't look Now is having a give away.
Also.......what to get the word out about your blog? Add it to our new Chic Chick Media Widget.

Thats funny, I just saw the tie thing in a magazine today and was wondering why I had never seen it before? It does seem odd, but I need to find a tie to try it out like right now. LOL

My biggest cooking disaster was when my oven caught fire, Christmas Day, when we had 22 people at the house for dinner. The last thing to do was brown the turkey.
Fortunately, my next-door neighbor was home and let me brown the turkey in her oven.
My sister tried to defrost a turkey in her clothes dryer!!! I'm not kidding!

Gina said...

Jenny said...

Kimber-Leigh said...

Pixeltrash said...

I'm totally doing this! I had seen it too late last year and forgot about it this year, so THANKS for posting this right before my little eyes!

I left a pumpkin pie on the stove once...later I was going to cook something and turned on a burner. I accidentally turned on the one with the pie and it caught fire. There was ash all over the kitchen!

The eggs are amazing!
