For Flashback Friday I'm re posting a recipe I made for the Super Bowl Party this year! It was Emeril Lagasse's Barbecued Pulled Pork Sandwiches, the absolute BEST recipe for pulled pork I have come across. If I remember right, I think Kathleen from Cuisine Kathleen gave me the head's up on this recipe. The Wet Mop Basting Sauce and the Barbecue Sauce give a special 'twang' that is so savory and delicious you think someone else had to have made this...certainly not me! I even impressed myself with this dish.... I added a simple cabbage slaw and the Super Bowl Party was a resounding success!
The theme for Foodie Friday was Cinco de Mayo...which I forgot until I was doing this post..since I did not plan ahead I will show you the most flavorful chips we always use with homemade salsa - they are a Aztec blue corn & sesame chips! There are never left over - you eat until they are gone!!
For Foodie Friday I finally, after much procrastination, made crab cakes with remoulade sauce. The most beautiful lump crab meat fell into my hands and I didn't have a choice! The recipe is from Epicurious and can be found HERE. When I made the remoulade, I did not have the anchovy paste, so it was omitted. To me, it did not take away from the flavor of the sauce in any way. It looks like I cooked the cakes a little too long, but they weren't overcooked at all...just happened to get a little dark..lol
Both of these recipes will be in my file for a long time... why mess with success!
Another reminder of the Mothers Day Tribute the weekend of May 8th. Please stop in and post photos and recipes or special heirloom items from your Mother, Grandmother, Mother-in-Law or anyone who is important to you on this day! I have it on good authority that Mr. Linky will be up and running! (Isn't that right Suzy and Kathleen)
