From the Garden to the Grill

Onions, tomatoes, peppers, summer squash - tossed in olive oil, seasoned with salt, pepper and oregano. The best of summer.

Molten Lava Cake

Picture perfect. My hubby made this and was just like what's served up in restaurants. Incredibly chocolate-ly.

Hunts Ketchup Gets Tricky

My husband specifically starting purchasing Hunts ketchup last year because it didn't contain high fructose corn syrup. We don't know at what point they changed the recipe, but the label now has HFCS as the second ingredient. Attention Hunts: Get rid of the HFCS.

Taste Test: Pringles vs. Pringles

My kiddo used to love these "cheese" Pringles, but she said they tasted wrong the last time we purchased them. The label said "Bursting with More Flavor." So, we found a non-"Bursting with More Flavor" can and did a taste test. Sure enough, the recipe has changed and I agree that it's not for the better. There's a petro-chemical off-flavor going on. A check on the label shows the big difference is a boost in sodium content - as if Pringles weren't already high sodium!

Idaho French Fries

Fresh-cut Idaho potatoes, deep-fried. It doesn't get any better than this. These fries were served up in Eastern Idaho at the Opal Country Cafe. Eastern Idaho is where most of the state's potatoes are grown. Nom. Nommity. Nom.

Taste Test: Habanero Pizza at Flying Pie

Habanero pizzas are only available in August at Flying Pie. It's the 19th year they've been offered and I got my first taste last night. I chose the "single" - you can get up to "triple," if you're insane. Single was perfect. Hot, yes, but not enough to make me sweat or swear, and there were no tears. The hot doesn't linger, either. Yummy pizza that's also topped with cheese, grilled chicken and black olives.
Highly recommended, but be warned. Both Flying Pie locations are extra busy during habanero season because folks love these pizzas!
