IMG_5006We’ve decided this is it!!  It’s time to revive our idea.  It may have changed a little, it may have not.  Cooking blogs and shows have really taken off over the past 5 years and our little blog is not meant to compete with any of them!! We are no Pioneer Woman (boy, hasn’t her career taken off!) or Rachael Ray. You will not find anything professionally done here.  HA!  I’m making this sound like a place you’ll want to come back to over and over!!

What you will find is this… ideas for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and a dessert or two.  Just friends, best friends, sharing with each other and providing helpful tips and tricks.  Oh…. and maybe just a little bit of sarcasm here and there.  Sorry, just can’t help it… it’s who we are!!

Some of our recipes will be full fat with full flavor thrown in.  Sometimes we will (or have) only been able to think about bacon and everything we seem to post will include it!  Some of our recipes are our own or have been passed down from our mom’s and grandma’s.  Other times we will try one of Ree’s and give it our full ‘two thumbs up’ approval and share it.

We are also about being healthy!  Hey, we have kids & grandkids to think about… lol!  We will be adding low fat, gluten free and diabetic recipes to this little blog.  Feel free to come back and take a look, share our passion, hear our rantings and try the recipes that sound good to you.

If nothing else, it should be good for a laugh!!

One of our Fat Bottomed Friends mentioned that she thought our Peachy Cobbler sounded great, but she couldn’t try it because she was allergic to cinnamon.  That got me thinking… and as promised, I got out my measuring spoons and my spices and got busy this weekend!!  My goal was to develop a cinnamon substitute for those of you who might be allergic to cinnamon.  It was fun…. I felt a little like a scientist!  I was careful not to use any allspice as many of those who have an allergy to cinnamon also are allergic to allspice.  After a few hours of taste testing… by George…. I think I’ve got it!  Who the heck IS George, anyway???

So… here you go.  I believe that we’ve come up with a very nice substitute for cinnamon, if you must.

  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 3/4 tsp ginger

It’s Nuvegin… uh… Ginomeg or… Clovinut?  Surely someone can come up with a better name for this!! Why don’t we play ‘Name this spice’??  Mix spices well, then measure and use just like cinnamon.  I even added the mixture to some sugar and made mock-cinnamon toast.  I was pleasantly surprised at how different and good it tasted!  In fact, my husband even ate a second piece!  Mind you, this does NOT taste anything like cinnamon…. but it’s a nice way to add spice to apples, peaches and other like-dishes that call for cinnamon if you’re allergic!  Try it…. I think you’ll like it!! 🙂
