a NEW taste Tuesday


Happy Tuesday!

It was a happy day when a friend recently called to get a recipe that I haven’t made in years…I was happy to be forced into remembering this great recipe!  I had made it for my son’s prom/dinner group (about a decade ago!)…and my friend remembered her son just raving about it.  It is super easy, but delicious.  We typically have mashed potatoes at our house, because my hubby is the mashed potato KING…that’s the only reason I haven’t made this baked potato topping in quite a few years.

It’s easy to remember:  1 pound butter; 1 pound sour cream; 1 pound bacon(cooked and crumbled); 1 bunch green onions.  That’s it!  Soften the butter and whip everything together. YUM!

You might also notice my baked potatoes wrapped in gold foil instead of tin foil.  I love the look of the gold…but I sure had a hard time finding it!  If you know a Sysco sales rep, check with him/her – that’s where I got mine, but again….that was about a decade ago (there’s 200 sheets in a box)! :o)

Have a great day!  Do or learn or TASTE something NEW!

a NEW recipe…Basil Butter


I’m loving my indoor herb garden!  {see previous post with details HERE}  Today I tried a NEW recipe and used up some of my basil that I’ve been growing.  YUMMY!  I got the recipe from Paint Chips and Frosting (that’s a fun blog name, huh?!?).

Now I’m on the hunt for more great fresh herb recipes…the only catch is, my garden is kind of small at the moment, so the recipes can’t call for more than a cup or so of basil, parsley or cilantro, and only a tiny bit of chives…but I have PLENTY of dill!   Does anyone have any fabulous dill recipes???

Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!

NEW ideas for Honey Butter

Fresh scones!  Yummy!….BUT they HAVE to have honey butter on them, right?  As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, if you happen to leave roll dough in the freezer a bit too long, (and they decide they don’t want to raise), just make scones!  I searched the web for variations on honey butter recently and thought I’d share with you what I found:

Tidy Mom (one of my very favorite sites) has a great recipe for Cinnamon Honey Butter -AND- a great gift idea!

Also Simply So Good had a recipe which I have to try soon!  It reminds me of the  really yummy Raspberry Butter I had at a restaurant on a recent weekend trip.  If it’s even tastes close….I know it will be fantastic!

Try some NEW variations of honey butter!  Let me know of any you can recommend ok?  Have a terrific day!
