Pico De Gallo Recipe


There is nothing more satisfying this time of year than having a garden grow.  By your own two hands, you’ve worked the land, nurtured and cared for it.  Now, the garden is growing lavishly, and giving back of all it’s received.

However, I can think of one thing that could, quite possibly, be more rewarding than this.  Walking out to the garden with a basket! (of course being thankful for the bounty you are about to receive).  And moreover, being thankful for recipes like this, that allow you to implement those, oh so wonderful, home-grown delectable.

Let’s Take a walk in the garden..

Pizza Pie


When you think pizza, you think of a circular flat bread plate topped with a smattering of choices.  Of which include a tomato sauce base and one of many varieties of cheese.  Or if you’re like me, more than one cheese please!

In our continued effort to bring you the coolest, easiest and possibly some of the best recipes around, we’ve found a couple more that we’d like to share.  I will list them both on this post.  Mangiere Bene Il Mio Amico! (Eat well my friend! :D)

Well on my adventure to find the “perfect” picture of what the Union soldiers called Skillygalee I came up empty.  As this has never happened to me before, I am quite dismayed by this.  HOWEVER, we are in luck that I am persistant.  Through many hours of this link, leading to that link, and so on, I was able to find some pictures that I think will give you a pretty good idea of what the Union was cooking up.

Civil War Recipe ~ Confederate Johnnie Cakes

Civil War Recipe ~ Confederate Johnnie Cakes

With experience growing among the Confederate soldiers, personal modifications to the uniform became prevalent.  The need for long boots, long coats, long sabers, buck gauntlets with long cuffs (gloves), and knapsacks filled with essentials soon went by the way-side.
