No Sunday Snapshots today, it’ll be back next Sunday.

Last month I introduced you to a new (yes, yet another one) feature here on Spicie Foodie, A Taste From The Past. If you missed it, basically it will be a special series for me to share great recipes from the Spicie Foodie archives. As I know is the case with many of you, I’ve accumulated some wonderful recipes that didn’t get the attention they so deserve. (This is my way of putting them in the spotlight again. Please join me as we “Feast On The Past” with April’s Taste From The Past.

Thanks Nandita :)

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again–I love that you’re bringing back recipes we have missed this way. I have a few of those, too, but I think I need to reshoot them first. The Mexican Chorizo tacos are calling my name–better check them out. :)

Thanks so much for the link to my eggplant-shiitake recipe! :)

Hi Jean,

Thank you and I’m gad to hear you’ve enjoyed this new feature. Those are one of my favorite tacos. I hope you do try them soon.

I loved your recipe:)

The cabbage rolls are really interesting looking. I don’t think I have the skills to make it though. I’m really bad in wrapping!


10 Spicie Foodie April 30, 2012 at 8:51 AM

It’s really not as hard as it looks Michelle. Maybe you’ll give them a go sometime.

Nancy I’ve missed all of these posts and most of what you did this month. I’ve been so busy I’m having trouble keeping up with everyone let alone myself. That said I’m going to read all of these. I agree we should all do this with our first run recipe posts with little followers. Great idea. I’m certain all these are as wonderful as the newer posts.


12 Spicie Foodie April 30, 2012 at 8:51 AM

Hi Vicki,

Thank you that is sweet of you. But I completely understand so don’t feel obligated:)

15 Ramona April 30, 2012 at 9:28 AM

What a exciting April you have had!! Love this new feature on your blog. :) Thank you so much for including me in the dishes you hope to try. I actually used the chutney in a recipe yesterday as an experiment and it came out so well. I will post it tomorrow. : ) Have a great week! ~ Ramona

Thanks Alisha!

I actually love this series because for the past 2 years I’ve been missing your posts and this way I get to see your wonderful recipes monthly! I don’t even have enough recipes to do the same – that tells how many recipes you have created on your blog! Amazing. :-)


20 Spicie Foodie May 3, 2012 at 8:13 AM

Thank you Nami, I’m glad to hear that you are enjoying it. I have a year more of recipes and posts than you but I’m sure you could also do the same.
