Try-It Tuesday Cloud Bread 

If you are on Pinterest you have seen cloud bread. You have been curious about cloud bread. If you haven’t well let me tell you about cloud bread. Haha! I found this link Cloud Bread and decided that I should try it for something a little different than my normal 3 hour bread baking weekend ritual. It seemed like an easy enough task. 

I had all the ingredients ready to go! 

The one thing I didn’t do was pull out the hand mixer and well my results will tell you that I shouldn’t have been lazy! 

I think I did those egg whites some justice with my elbow grease though. Haha! Stuck them in the oven and well magic happened. 

They actually looked the way I thought they kind of should. They aren’t quite as fluffy as I was hoping hence I needed the hand mixer. 

But upon escape from the oven and a proper cooling phase I was very happy with the taste and thus I will definitely be trying this recipe again! I wish I could describe it properly it tastes like bread just a super light version. Nothing heavy about it at all. These didn’t last long in my house at all. 

Thanks Becca for an amazing recipe! 

Are you guys actually trying these things you find on Pinterest? May change these posts to “nailed it” type posts in the future. 

Until next time mangia my loves, 


Try It Tuesday Pork Edition 

We are a pork household. We love pork and all enjoy cooking it as well. Our smoker has seen better days so I had to try my hand at fixing a pork butt in the oven. 

That is how it turned out. A 7 pound butt cooked for 5 hours at 200 degrees covered in tin foil and then for 2 hours at 350 with the foil removed. I covered it with some homemade rub. The seasoning was excellent. We honestly missed a little bit of the smoky flavor that we get when we do a traditional butt in our smoker but overall excellent flavor and this just proves that you can cook a piece of meat as long as you have some heat and the time. 

My husband then made these amazing pulled pork sandwiches. 

Layer pork, BBQ sauce, a fried egg and some pimento cheese. Trust me the flavor is out of this world! 



Brisket Business 

Brisket is one of those things that a lot of people are a little shy of making. I know sometimes meat that has to cook a long time concerns me. But luckily my man has taught me all the glorious things that slow cooked meat can be lol! So I thought I would take on a brisket but I wanted a new recipe to entice the whole family. 

I turned to my trusty All Recipes website and I found this one Simply the Easiest Brisket

Yes it has a can of beer in it and it was really good. The whole family enjoyed it. It was very easy and very tasty. Give it a try. 



Nashville Hot Chicken -It’s a thing! 

So I live in Nashville and I have since I was a young girl. And one of the things I have never tried is Nashville Hot Chicken. It has started to become a famous thing. I’ve heard there are restaurants all over the country that are coming up with their own recipes and their own versions. 

Well as I said I had never tried it and thought that it should be done. Also never tried chicken and waffles. This had to be done as well. So my honey took me to his favorite hot chicken joint. 

Pepperfire Hot Chicken in East Nashville. We ordered up our chicken. My honey went with his traditional 3 piece and I did the chicken and waffles. 

So let me say this. The hype is real and it’s for a reason. I’ve not been a spicy anything fan ever. But I’m “warming up” to the idea. Haha get it! Anywho I will say this as well. The spicy of the chicken combined with the sweet of the waffle and syrup was the perfect combination and is now probably one of my favorite foods. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this combo but it was great. The spice levels are tricky and I will be honest I got the lightest amount of spice they had, with their actually being spice and well I couldn’t and wouldn’t dare go hotter. But man it was an awesome experience and if you are coming to Nashville or you happen to see it on a menu near you, give it a shot. Really you won’t regret it. Just start with the lightest spicy. Use caution my dears! 




Pot Roast to the Rescue 

So not being able to eat much lately and just really needing some comfort food it was time for a good old fashioned roast. I wanted a new recipe though because for try-it Tuesday I always like to try something new. So I looked to Pioneer Woman and found her Perfect Pot Roast. Please see her recipe here

The biggest difference from her roast is that at the 1.5 hour mark (halfway through for my roast) I added potatoes. And they cooked perfectly. The recipe lived up to the hype. The meat was cooked beautifully, the carrots maintained an amazing texture I really enjoyed. I tried my hand at a gravy but it still needs some work! All in all a little home cooking comfort food was what I needed and didn’t make me too horribly sick afterward which was great. 

Have you tried any new recipes lately?
