Foodie Friday--January 3, 2014

 Welcome to the first Foodie Friday of 2014.
I hope the New Year brings you joy, contentment, and great recipes. We cooked, visited with family, tended to the farm, and tried to stay warm. 
Speaking of food . . . I'm always excited to see what you've cooked up each week. I thought it would be fun to include a  round-up of last week's favorite Foodie Friday recipes.

Last Week's Favorite Foodie Friday Recipes




Sourdough Native's Scalloped Ham-Potato-and Broccoli

Picture Perfect Cooking's Basic Slow Cooker Roast

Hope in Every Season's Chicken Ranch Casserole

 Olla-Podrida's Caribbean Cornbread

Swirl and Spice's Cranberry and Coconut Gummy Candies

The Mystery Ingredient Club returns Friday, February 7th, along with the regular Foodie Friday
party. If you aren't familiar with the club, you can read about it HERE. Past MIC parties included an unusual ingredient: preserved lemons ...

... and a mystery sprinkle kit for Halloween.

The February party is open to everyone.
If you'd like to play along, the secret ingredient will be unveiled Monday, January 6th, along with places to find the ingredient (it won't be truffles!) and brief guidelines--they'll be a little different.
But fun!
Hope you'll join us!

    It's always wonderful to visit you! Today I've shared a traditional New Year's recipe for Navy Bean Soup with a little information on finding gluten-free dried beans, peas and legumes. The soup happens to be gluten-free but all sorts of people like it, especially those in my family who are not GF.
    I hope your year ahead will be blessed and full of peace --
