TFal Ultimate Hard Enamel 12 Piece Cookware Set1. My very first entry was from Anthony @ The Lives & Times and he wrote an insightful entry: I’m Great at Eating, Now it’s Time to Start Learning How to Cook – LOL…The perfect start to this Foodie Blog Carnival! Thanks Tony.

2. Kenney has a beautiful post about what Food means to him…Food is Love to Kenney and it reminds him of spending time with family and loved ones around a table with wonderfully prepared meals that were put together with the utmost of care…Check out Kenney’s blog, How to Love!

3. I love Ingrid’s entry because her recipe for Crepes: Kasper German Pancake Recipe is the very first meal she ever cooked herself. How cool is that? Check out her blog about being a grandma, mother and woman today @ Ingrid Turner Today!

Hamilton Beach Classic Chrome 5 Quart Slow Cooker - 335504. As I was speaking about a few posts ago, don’t put your crock pot away yet…Endure the rest of the cold weather with Slow Cooked Tuscan Beef Stew found at Slow Cooker Recipes! Awesome…Sounds yummy!

5. Okay…Don’t Apple Cheddar Quesadillas with Cranberry Coleslaw sound amazing? Care of WorldFamousRecipes.org.

10. Blog N’ Butter Blog Network loves Gordon Ramsay, so they entered Did You See Kitchen Nightmares Last Night? Gordon rocks…a true foodie!

Wine Knot - Wine Rack11. Joe, my good friend @ Another Wine Blog entered A Matter of Taste – a look back at how his tastes for different food and even wine itself have changed over the years…how they shift as we age…maybe due to social influences, maybe physiological age or is it something else? My hubby’s tastes certainly have changed in ways very similar to Joe’s over the past 12 years we’ve been together…Great post Joe!

12. Gera @ one of my very favorite blog about Sweets and other delicious stuff on the net, Sweets Foods, gave us a post on A Sandwich or Hamburger Recipe? None – A Delicious Uruguayan Chivito – I need one of these today!!! Goodness that sounds fantastic!

Pistachios Roasted & Salted Natural 21/25 - 25 Lb Pistachios R&S Nat.21/25: GR24. I am a new-found lover of pistachios…as Joe mentioned in #11, my grown-up tastes have changed.

  4. German Pancake recipe – yum. Your Mom’s is more elaborate than mine in that she beat the eggs first – a step we skip – but in essence its the same as my grandmother’s. Our sons love my pancakes – yes, morning, lunchtime and night, and frown upon fat fluffy (and doughy!) “American pancakes”. Guess I spoilt them for life in that respect πŸ˜‰

    • Hi Sabrina!!!

      Yes, that is very much the truth…We have been spoiled for life…

      In fact, no one in our family will eat the American-style pancakes either.

      My hubby grew up on those babies and he likes crepes, but can’t give up his pacakes. I make them for him, but won’t touch them myself! LOL…

      Thanks for coming by! I’m glad you enjoyed the articles!
