Flashback and Foodie Friday ...

It's Friday! Busiest time of the week for my blog since I try to participate in both Flashback Friday, hosted by Suzy of Kitchen Bouquet and also Foodie Friday,
hosted by Michael of Designs by Gollum . Check out both of these sites, I have gathered such great recipes from both and the photos are superb!



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!


A Special Tribute for Mothers Day


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)

Every picture is mouth watering. I have gained so much weight with FF, I am giving up and buying new clothes. The pulled pork looks so good and is perfect with the tangy slaw. The crab cakes are sublime!Don't ever worry about FFriday themes--they are optional. With great dishes like these, we foodies are all thrilled!!!

Your pulled pork and crabcakes look so delicious, Barb!

I agree - don't mess with success ;)

Martha said...

Those chips look good -- I've never had them.

Suzy said...

Both recipes looks awesome Barb! And those chips do too. Where do you get them? I really would love to have some of those crab cakes. I always crave seafood! Thanks for joining me on the flashback. I am getting mine posted now. Someone suggested I do Mr. Linky "as practice" for Mother's day. So check in tomorrow and add your link :-) If it's not too much trouble I'll do it every week.

Happy Friday!

Marsha said...

Barb, everything looks mouthwatering delicious! Now tell us, where did you find great crabmeat in the midwest? Those cakes look so good. Pulled pork is a favorite here too and I have yet to try your recipe. Soon.

A great post as always.

Kathleen said...

That looks so good! Some of both please! I have pulled pork on my list..mine doesn't look as good as yours, but it is tasty!
Great post Barb, and depend on Suzy for Mr Linky..I don't remember what I did...she's very good at it..:)

Everything looks so good, I am off to check out the crab cakes recipe, yum.

Joyce said...

I have never seen those chips before so I will be looking for them when I shop to try them out. Thanks for sharing your delicious post and I love the idea of a Moms Tribute. I really miss my Mom but some days I can feel her next to me. I know it sounds weird but I swear:)

wow! this looks fantastic!

ellen b. said...

Oh you made some seriously good looking food for us. I wish you could pass it through the monitor!!

Cynthia said...

Barb, what a winning post!

I just emailed John the link to Emeril's pulled pork. John thinks he makes the best pulled pork ever, and I usually agree. Emeril's looks really tasty. Love the pic with the slaw.

AND .. the crab cakes recipe looks similar to my favorite one that I have misplaced. Thank you ... I eat them plain, but the remoulade sounds mighty tasty.

Jayne said...

Barb, looks like two winning recipes to me! Yum! Yes, I'll have some of both too!

susan said...

Your recipes and food are mouth-watering! I agree--some things just cannot be improved! I left you a "happy" at my place!

Lori (All That Splatters) said...

I bought the strawberry marshmallows at Target. They also have toasted coconut (YUM!), but were out. The pink & green hydrangeas are from Michael's. ☺ Diane

Foley said...

Thaks everyone!

Marsha - there is a place at the Lakes called Newmans that fly in fresh fish all the time. I have also found premium lump crab meat at Sam's Club that looks very good..will try that next!! Yes, even in the boonies we luck out once in awhile!

Shirley said...

Just looking at your wonderful recipes makes me hungry. Pulled pork is one of our favorites.
