Chili Lime Pretzel Mix – SRC Group D Reveal

Yum
Pretzel bits, oyster crackers, and rice crackers are coated with delicious chili powder and lime flavors to make this game day worthy snack mix for any crowd.

It’s SRC REVEAL DAY for group D. I love love LOVE SRC!




For those that don't know, SRC (Secret Recipe Club) is a group of extremely talented bloggers, chefs, and food-thousiasts like myself. Once a month, we sign up to participate and once a month we're assigned a fellow blogger in our group. Once we have found and created or re-created a recipe on the blog we are assigned, we create a post telling everyone about our assigned blogger, their blog, and the chosen recipe on our specified group reveal date. I'm not explaining it all that well. So, you'd better head on over to their website and read about it yourself. It's awesome and I've found some really wonderful blogs to follow and be inspired by.

Like this one!

#FoodieFriDIY - Birthday Style!

Yum





Sorry this is going to be a short post.  We are going to be packing up today, the movers come tomorrow, and we move into OUR NEW HOUSE!  I'm so excited!  WE are so excited!  GOURMET KITCHEN!  I promise a nice photo collage of the place soon so y'all can see it and be jealous.  Muahahahahah!

Don't forget about all the new changes we made to the party.  Didya sign up for the Pinterest board and the Facebook group?

  1. Name change!  We are now the Foodie Friday & DIY.  Yes, we are now accepting the DIY projects.  Previously we were trying to be just food, but some of the DIY is SUPER COOL!
  2. We have opened the Pinterest board to invite all you nice linkers to pin to the board, too!!  So, now it's not just us pinning your awesome recipes and ideas, but you can pin there too, with a few rules, of course.  If you'd like an invite, please send an email to Michelle to dishofdailylife@gmail.com Requesting Invite - Foodie Fridays and DIY Group Board.
  3. An enhanced Features and Favorites board.  Not only are we posting our features, but also our favorites.  Some of us, myself included, do a round up of recipes for the features.  Well, that leaves out our faves.  So, we're posting those there, too.
  4. We have a FACEBOOK GROUP!  I know!  That's awesome!!  This group is for those who are committed to helping each other grow.  We are currently accepting members, so, make sure to check with Michelle for an invite to the group.
  5. And...WE CLOSE OUR HOUSE NEXT WEEK!  I hope, at least. I haven't heard from the loan coordinator yet, but we skipped Christmas so we wouldn't have anything questionable on our credit.

Saucy Skillet Cordon Blue with Rice

Yum
A quick and easy skillet meal, this Saucy Skillet Cordon Blue with Rice tastes just like the famous chicken dish without all the work.



I have a bone to pick with Pinterest. Bare with me on this one readers, I feel a need to rant about this issue. Well, I don't have a bone with the website or the program and its algorithms. I’m not one of those bloggers. If I have 2 readers I’m thrilled. Here's the scenario, I’m scrolling through my Pinterest feed and I come across a photo for delicious looking food. Like this one here. I mean, those hotcakes look like little clouds of heaven, right?

Hot Brown Ham Sliders - #SundaySupper Hometown Food

Yum
I've mashed up the Kentucky hot brown with the Virginia ham biscuit and made these deliciously simple Hot Brown Ham Sliders.

When I was 7, I remember it distinctly,we moved from Kentucky to Virginia. Dad was working for a county office and applied to a position with the Federal government. He was hired; cause he’s awesome! So, this family of country bumpkins (and I mean COUNTRY with accents a MILE long) moved to the big city. Think Beverly Hillbillies but on a smaller scale and not quite so back woods.  It was a mile to our neighbor, but we didn't have to hunt for dinner, unless you count the fridge.

It has been THE WORST week.  I gotta say.  Power outages and a broken down car = unhappy kitchen hoor.  I can only hope that Monday goes smoothly and we are allowed to close on our FIRST HOUSE EVER!

Cheesy Ham and Potato Leek Soup

Yum
With a few simple ingredients, and some left over holiday ham, you can make a delicious and hearty soup for supper. Cheesy Ham and Potato Leek Soup is perfectly warming for the colder nights.

Last week was not fun. Here’s how it all went down. Bear with me, this is a rather lengthy post. But it has a happy tummy ending.

Monday was relatively normal. There was a winter advisory from the National Weather Service Monday night into Tuesday afternoon. Around here, that could mean anything. It could be anywhere from nothing but a little rain to a light dusting to a foot. I’m sure this is true everywhere, but there’s no way the meteorologists can get anywhere close to predicting what the weather will actually do. Sometimes they’re in the ballpark, but most of the time, forget about it.

Eggplant Schnitzel - #WeekdaySupper Lightened Up Meal

Yum
You won't miss the meat in this Eggplant Schnitzel. Toasting the panko really does the trick to make this crunchy, tasty and crazy delicious.

Eggplant Schnitzel - #WeekdaySupper Lightened up Meal - You won't miss the meat in this Eggplant Schnitzel. Toasting the panko really does the trick to make this crunchy, tasty and crazy delicious.


This month #WeekdaySupper is lightening up their menu. Not that we eat of lot of fattening food, but we do eat GOOD food. And, I’m sure we’re like the rest of the world that indulged during the holiday season; holiday cookies, cakes, pies, parties with cheese trays, stuff mushrooms, and wine. LOTS of wine. The holidays are all about feeding your senses and your inner fat chick. Well, unless you’re me and you’ve let her out. *snort* 

So, this month, we are getting back on track, cooking up some healthier options of our faves, and realigning ourselves to eating for need instead of just eating because it’s there. #SundaySupper offered up some tasty vittles last week to get us all back on track. From spaghetti with meatball pearls to pulled pork tacos to egg drop soup, we covered several bases of basic food cravings. And this week we’re serving up some of my schnitzel, some fish and chips, and some potato soup. You’re not going to want to miss this month’s recipes for #WeekdaySupper!!

Supreme Pizza Strata - Captivating Casseroles #SundaySupper

Yum
This has all the flavors of delicious supreme pizza in a tasty casserole. Combine the ingredients and allow it to sit overnight before baking to allow the bread to soak up all that delicious pizza flavor.



I have three casserole dishes. Yup. Just three. I’d honestly have more if I had more room to collect antique Pyrex casserole dishes. Honestly, the butterprint and snowflake patters are AWESOME! Just saying….
