Tried and True Recipes #9

What a crazy week!  We had several days of torrential rain and my basement flooded!  As I speak I can take a deep whiff of....................moldy, wet basement.  UGGHHH!

Needless to say, I haven't done a lot of cooking this week.  Instead I've been going through boxes, and throwing out things I should have gotten rid of a long time ago.

Anyway, I your week was better than mine.  Last week I put out a challenge for you.  If you brought a friend to the blog, you and your friend would be eligible for a gift card.  Thanks to all of you that participated!

The winners are......................Beth from The View From the Pew and Lucy from Coffee With Us 3.  Congratulations ladies!  I will be emailing you the details of your prize!

Now, onto the featured recipes.  Once again, I learned so much from you.  I loved reading about the Russian piroshki, making your own sausage, the chicken ravioli, and the rice from Sierra Leone!  You are all so talented -!

Here are a few of my favorites:

Taco Pizza from One Organic Mama

Lumpia from Spatulas On Parade

Toffee Apple Tartlets from With A Blast

  5. Nothing worse than a damp, smelly basement~ When we lived in our older home (80 years old) every time it rained, our basement flooded, one reason we sold it:) Bad foundation. Hope this next week goes better for you:) Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines
