Something strange happened to me today that I decided to clean all my dinner wear. And the following is the only way I can explain why…..
Last nigh the cleaning fairy came to me and touched my forehead and said, “Darling, you shall clean all dinner wear tomorrow.” And so this morning I said to myself, “I am going to start my early spring cleaning. And for some strange reason I am going to clean all my dinner wear.”

But let us start with yesterday’s dinner. As usual I was buzzing all the beautiful recipes on FoodBuzz and I stumbled upon this interesting looking and sounding savory cake. So I checked it out, and decided and this is it! You know curiosity might have killed the cat, but that day it brought a wonderful dinner to our table. The recipe was posted by thatshowiroll. I didn’t have any Parmesan, savoy cabbage, or red onions on hand so I used sharp cheddar, cabbage, and yellow onions instead. My daughter snatched the a piece today to take to school. It was a successful hit between her friends and even some teachers. Here is a thumbs up for you my dear friend from all of them ^_^ You can find the recipe here.


Then the cleaning begun. Water, soap, and Clorox. Everything soaked for half an hour, rinsed, and then let to dry.

Unfortunately, the day didn’t go by without any mishaps! Yes, I broke something and yes, I am somewhat sad. I broke a tea cup and a tall glass.

While I was waiting for everything to dry out, I of course returned to FoodBuzz. You know what I found? Yes, you guessed it! I found a recipe. The prize goes to CitraKale  @Indonesian in Turkey and her Simple Bake Potato Cheese. And those turned out wonderful also. Some with cheese other without, because my husband for some strange reason doesn't eat melted cheese, except on pizza, of course! For the recipe click here.

Being  a member of FoodBuzz has widened my culinary knowledge. Because you connect with cooks all around the globe on a personal level; through reading their life experiences and daily activities all through sharing the food that they love. And in the end we all find out that every single person in this world shares a common connection: their simple love for food.

As far as for my early spring started snowing in the afternoon :(
