Naples: The Birthplace of the Modern Pizza

"Pizza...who doesn't love it?  ... Italians take their food (and wine) seriously ... Pizza is no exception. ..."  Learn about the history of pizza and why it is associated with Naples. 






I guess this article title is more accurate since it uses the phrase “Modern Pizza”. I've read some food history that wants to give the credit for inventing pizza to the Persians (see video below). Although I would be more than happy to give Naples for inventing pizza: be it ancient or modern. Nevertheless, whoever invented pizza I'm glad.  Pizza and cheesecake make the world a better place. 😋

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.
