  • “Noelle’s Tasty Tips”  How to get that strong onion taste out.

 

Oh boy, fresh salsa!  It goes well with omelets, country breakfast potatoes as well as tacos and all the other items that need a fresh kick  Though I do love salsa, I am not a fan of anything spicy.  My Pico de Gallo Salsa Recipe has no heat at all.  I’m sure you could add it if you wanted to with some jalapenos but I have no experience with spicy things and how they affect the flavor. This simple recipe is also great to make with a little one who is being introduced to the kitchen for the first time.

  • Cooking Skill level: Easy  
  • Cooking time:  35 minutes
  • Taste Impression:   Butter, cheesy. You will never go back to eating plain pasta again!

 The Parmesan Cheese Pasta is a recipe near and dear to my heart. This is one of my late Aunts recipe, she was one amazing home cook. I always had such a wonderful time getting to be with her in the kitchen.  She would tell me stories and give me advice while preparing some of the most delicious meals I’ve ever had.  One of her best cooking tips to me was ‘always use enough butter’ 🙂 I miss her dearly and think of her often when I am making this pasta recipe. 

If you don’t like butter or cheese then this is not the dish for you.  The butter not only adds loads of flavor but keeps the paste from sticking together.  There are only 4 ingredients, and the great thing is It’s only a few more than your normal pasta.  Come with me as I show you one of my memory lanes.

  • Cooking time:  45 minutes 🙂 
  • Taste Impression:   Like a spinach omelet (a good one!)

Here is the next in the series of on-the-go Breakfasts. This one has to be one of my favorites. I just love the spinach and feta cheese combo and the hint of oregano. Oh, so tasty!!

In other news, it has been a crazy week here at our house,  the refrigerator went and it’s now sitting in our kitchen like a big empty coffin. Luckily we have a small back up fridge that now has become part of the living room ambiance.

The next day as I was using the kitchen sink it fell apart like a collapsing skeleton.  Some how a stabilizing ring that holds the whole thing together decided to give way…what a mess.  On the other hand, I didn’t have to do dishes for a few days (life always seems to be a give and take).   With fingers crossed here’s hoping nothing else in the kitchen fails or dies  😉

Thank you for listening, time to move on and make this recipe.
