A Taste From The Past: March Recipes

A Blast From The Past; March Recipes, Spicie Foodie

Spicie Foodie will be three in July of this year. My how the time flies. Over these 2.8 years I’ve shared countless recipes. All recipes I am proud of, many that I cook often, and some that I had forgotten about. I don’t do many recipe reviews where I post other peoples recipes. It isn’t because I don’t try out other’s recipe, but rather because I prefer to test out my own ideas then share what I have created with you.

A Blast From The Past; March Recipes, Spicie Foodie

I constantly develop and test out new recipes running through my head. To me that is part of the fun of  being a food blogger and food writer. I get to experiment, create and share it all with you. But one of the draw backs of constantly creating and posting new recipes is that some are forgotten about. As is the case with us all, we don’t start off with the same amount of foodie friends and visitors we later have as our blogs grow. The result is that many of the older recipes do not receive the attention they deserve. So I’ve decided to introduce a new series, A Taste From The Past. Pretty self explanatory, no?

To kick off the inaugural edition I am sharing recipes previously published in the month of March. I hope you enjoy the collection and perhaps even find one to cook/bake this weekend.

20 Spicie Foodie March 24, 2012 at 9:59 AM

Hi Radhika,

I loved the recipe when I saw it. We had it for dinner last night and hubby kept going on about how great it tasted. We loved it and will be making it again soon. Thanks and have a great weekend!


21 Nandita March 24, 2012 at 2:02 AM

All those pictures are making me drool. Especially the Pastel de chocolate one. Congrats on completing 3 years

I’ve considered the same thing since updating my blog recently. I enthusiastically shared some of my most-loved recipes during the first couple of months of blogging but I didn’t have an audience then. The pictures are awful, too, so I’ve been wondering how to re-introduce them on the blog. I like your Taste from the Past series-great way for me to see your earlier recipes. :)

Congrats on almost 3 years–time does fly fast, doesn’t it?! :)


30 Spicie Foodie March 26, 2012 at 9:25 AM

Hi Jean,

You should do it, my old photos are awful. I still have much to learn and improve on but in a way it’s good to see the growth. Thanks :)


31 Nami | Just One Cookbook March 26, 2012 at 5:01 AM

Wow your 3 year anniv is coming up? Thank you for sharing your past recipes. You have so many recipes and now seeing your past pictures, I can see your photography improvement. Your past pictures are already gorgeous but you really worked hard to get to where you are now. I’m inspired!


32 Spicie Foodie March 26, 2012 at 9:21 AM

Hi Nami,

Sometimes I feel embarrassed about the old photography but the recipes are some of my favorites. That is why I decide to bring attention to them again:) Thank you so much!


33 Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts March 26, 2012 at 10:35 PM

What a great idea! What great recipes you started with. Your pictures, even then were gorgeous!


34 Spicie Foodie March 27, 2012 at 9:25 AM

Thanks Erin :)


35 Magic of Spice March 27, 2012 at 5:41 PM

What a wonderful new series…and such delicious links!
