Foodie Friday : World Cuisine : Japan’s 10 weirdest ice cream flavors (Reblog)

ATTN Foodies and  food lovers. Check out this Top Ten List. Do you have a taste for something sweet, cold and delicious, yet strange and exotic or ... maybe just a little salty? Then you should probably be visiting an ice cream parlor in Japan. Have heard of sweet potato ice cream, which I thought was weird; but it's not on this list! Squid ink?? It's Number 8. Eh! It's soft serve! Worth a try! :)

Ever tried Slap Ya Mama seasonings?

Interesting name huh?. The way Walker & Sons advertise their food products is:

"Taste so good. Make you wanna slap ya mama!"

Say what??!! There is nothing in my entire life that I've eaten that ever made me want to slay my momma. But guess what? These are award-winning spice blends.

"Real Cajun Seasoning for Real Cajun Cooking."

How did I find out about these products? The Internet and Facebook, in particular, is a beautiful thing. This person saw my foodie website, Everyday Exotic Spices, which is advertised on Facebook via my business page, contacted me, and asked if they could send me samples. Of course, my response was “Yes!”
Received various products in a box delivered straight to my door. Tried them in different recipes and here's my reaction. Did I want to slap my momma? No. But I was ready go mano-y-mano with my spouse!
He wanted to keep it all to himself. I'm like: “Oh no! That ain't happening!!”

View the entire selection of Slap Ya Mama products.

Below are my favorites.

My foodie Friday topic is "samosas". Here is a link to a fun post published at one of my other blogs. It's sort of a Bollywood movie pick with an introduction to a fun food that the people of India love to eat: Hot n Spicy Samosas. To this link, I'm adding some more fun links below.  Enjoy!

Foodie Friday : Candied Jalapeño Peppers

Cutting it close.  Trying to get this foodie Friday post published before midnight.  Sorry.  But the inspiration came to me late in the day as I was driving to pick up my daughter from high school.  This foodie Friday's topic is:

Candied Jalapeño Peppers.

If you're from Texas you probably already know about them.  But I'm what they call a "Texas import".  That means I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could! 😜

Love jalapeños.  Love them with the seeds!!!  The hotter the better!  Knew they came fresh or pickled.  Never knew they came sweet too!  You can buy them in the local grocery stores (here in Austin, Texas) or you can make them.  The recipe is easy.  Sharing some links below.

Here's a fun food fact.

Candied Jalapeño Peppers are also called "cowboy candy".


Candied Jalapenos

Candied Jalapenos

There aren't words that exist to describe how addictive these little savoury, sweet, spicy, crunchy, garlicky pickled jalapeno rounds are. Put them on sandwiches, tacos, rice or bake them into cornbread. You'll need more and more!



Sriracha Deviled Eggs with Candied Jalapeno Peppers

Sriracha Deviled Eggs with Candied Jalapeno Peppers

Serve something a little different for your Easter spread this year: Sriracha Deviled Eggs with Candied Jalapeno Peppers. Sriracha spices up these deviled eggs and the candied jalapeno peppers give it a sweet/spicy note transforming the ordinary into extraordinary! Make it even more special and serve them on this gorgeous Wilton Armetale Egg Tray from their Flutes & Pearls Collection.

Cowboy Candy {Candied Jalapenos}

If you like pepper jelly served over cream cheese on crackers, you will love Cowboy Candy. The sugary sweet syrup/brine is the perfect compliment to the heat of the jalapenos. When my friend, Diane, at Canning and Cooking at Home made these, I knew I wanted to try it for myself.

There is one classic dessert my husband and I can't resist - nothing fancy or over the top, just the simple, sweet and soft yumminess of pound cake with a good cup of tea! Over the years I've experimented with many flavours in this simple recipe, from the good old plain vanilla to cardamom spiced and, of course, the chocolate version.
