What do you think of eggs? Are they a go-to morning food or do you eat them anytime of the day?  Are you only a scrambled person or do you change it up based upon your mood? Do you look at a meal and think it would be better with an egg on top or is your meal based around the egg? I love the versatility of eggs.  Poking a perfectly poached egg and watching the yolk burst out gives me the chills, the crispy edges of an oil fried egg makes me tingle and the bright yellow yolk of a flawless hard-boiled egg makes me feelRead More →

Are you reading for some learnin’?  One of my many realizations in the past year was that I still need to make more steps forward in learning about other cuisines. I had this epiphany when watching Jeopardy and a food category came up.  I was sure I would get them all right but I didn’t….I only got one correct and it was the $200 Answer.  I was quite embarrassed with myself and so glad I wasn’t standing behind the podium.  (Because I will say that I mock those people who are in a vocation and then get the questions wrong in their vocation.) Just becauseRead More →

Drum roll please….it is time for the Annual….DEVILED….EGGS…blog!!!!! (I guess I gave it away in the title.) Hooray!!!!!!!! I think this has become one of my favorite blogs on Felt Like a Foodie. I know that if I didn’t feel the pressure to write about deviled eggs every year…I probably wouldn’t force myself to experiment with the fillings. (Oh who am I fooling…I’m so wild…I would probably do this anyway!) I was perusing the Internet getting some inspiration and I noticed something I never had seen done to a deviled egg before. (Please note…do not look at a website called Deviled Egg Fetishes….if you wonderedRead More →

Okay, maybe that isn’t very “eggciting” but I thought the egg reference was appropriate because I feel like an egg right now. First and foremost, my shell is definitely cracked. This last little medical blip makes me feel like humpty dumpty. It is truly like I fell off a wall. My doctors are in the process of putting me back together but it doesn’t seem to be working.   Think about when you crack an egg. Even with all the duct tape in the world, you aren’t going to find all the pieces and put it back together. I am sure it is as frustrating forRead More →

*** I am still trying to work out the “comment” bug on the new website. I am also trying to lighten up the backgrounds. Thanks for your patience during this transition……and now on to this weeks post.**** Super Bowl weekend is upon us. Are you excited? Is your team playing? Do you know who is playing? (I don’t.) As you know from previous years, I’m not much of a sports buff. (Now if they showed some clips of the guys in the locker in the buff, I may be convinced to watch more often.) Don’t get me wrong, I think it is an interesting sportRead More →

Writing Felt Like a Foodie sometimes is overwhelming. There is a pressure to make sure my recipes are correct, ingredients are accessible and it is a relevant post. (By relevant, I mean, it can hold your interest so you don’t only look at the picture….especially today’s picture!  ZOIKS!!!) As I start to approach my 5-year mark, I am feeling a little more pressure. Am I doing new things? Am I reinventing old favorites? Am I funny? Am I funny looking? The big thing for me is to keep making things that I want to eat and finding stories you want to read. (Or maybe afterRead More →

Why don’t you like me? Is it my color? Do you think I’ll make you fat? Maybe my gooey insides freak you out? Could it be that you just don’t like things that are different? These are questions poached eggs would like to ask you. (By you, I am referring to all the people who have never had a poached egg.) Just imagine being shunned because people are unfamiliar with you. It can make an egg have hurt feelings. I think this is how hard-boiled eggs first originated. All of his anger and disappointment built up inside and hardened his yolk. How do you likeRead More →

My husband and I did something the other day that we haven’t done for a loooooong time. It is stereotypically something guys want to do more than girls but this time I was pushing for it. The interesting thing is that he only wanted to do it if we had another couple involved. Since I am a good sport, I said yes. If this was the only way he was going to do this…the more the merrier! I couldn’t wait to see the bases again and to see who would get the first homerun! Are you like this too? Do you like professional ball games?Read More →

One of the many highlights of writing Felt Like a Foodie is the communication I have with my readers. I get Facebook posts telling them that I made them laugh. I get comments on how they tried a recipe and just loved it! And then I get some emails that are let’s say a little more explicit. (Explicit as in detailed, not as in naughty but I do get those too.) Apparently there are things that I find important to include in a recipe, like exact measurements, that some people just feel are unnecessary. Case in point, my annual deviled egg recipes. Since year oneRead More →

Do you ever feel like your brain is scrambled? That confused feeling when you are trying to complete a simple task but for some reason it isn’t coming easily. You know the solution but for some reason you just can’t get there. (If I were a little older, I’d just say “senior moment” but I can’t use that excuse yet.) I’ve been feeling that way since my hospital stay. I just feel dopey. I find jokes harder to get and I get distracted easily. Look a bird is at the feeder. Where was I? I chalk a lot of this up to the fact thatRead More →
