Foodie Friday -- August 22


Welcome to Foodie Friday
where good food is always on the menu.
I'm bringing an old favorite to the party--a super easy 
blueberry tart.





A Taste of Foodie Friday's Most Popular Recipes
Showcasing Bloggers' Recipes and their Words

The most-viewed recipe was Dad's Spaghetti Sauce by Gather Around Our Table 
Here's how Natasha explains the background of her sauce:

"At my dad's 80th birthday party (yup, you read that right) all his sweet friends and family stood up and read letters to him recounting all the fun they had through the years over a few beers and most importantly surrounding my dad's cooking," Natasha explains. "I can't stress enough how sought after this man is for his cooking! Requests come in from all over the country for this guy's corned beef and cabbage, baked ravioli, and of course this famous spaghetti sauce. 
You guys, the recipe's not even hard. If we were really living in Italy, maybe he would have grown his own tomatoes and canned them all then made a fresh pot of sauce. But we don't, so I'll let you in on a little secret, he cheats with the canned stuff...gasp... And it's freaking delicious."



Foodies loved The Maine House's Ultimate Rustic Italian Penne. And it's
easy to see why. This is an entree that should be in a class of its own--the angels sing when this casserole is baking
"It's going to take a little time, but the end result is well worth it!" Estelle writes.
"The flavors of this pasta bake are incredible!
If you are having company for dinner or just want to serve a beautiful weekend dinner,
 this pasta will earn rave reviews!
 Are you ready to begin?"

--Estelle, The Maine House


Back Porch Musings wowed everyone with homemade chili, better known as "Good Eats." 
When I started blogging in 2008, Pat was one of the first ladies to make me feel welcome.
She always inspires me with her grace and style.

"Sometimes, life is like a bowl of chili…full of beans and a little spicy," Pat says. 
"I made a crockpot of chili on Wednesday. Every time I make chili I put it together different than the time before. It always tastes good, even when I throw it a curve. Pinto and Great Northern beans for the pot, this time, and the usual spices with the addition of Mexican Seasoning. Simmered in the pot all day. Served in the new red bowls, topped with sour cream, Pico De Gallo, and shredded cheese."
--Pat, Back Porch Musings
