Welcome to We Want to Know Wednesdays Q&A

WELL!!  We ask for it and we are getting it!!  Want to know it and we'll probably find out!!  :D  So, here we go for this weeks "We Want To Know"!!

1}Ricki Jill from http://ricki-treleaven.blogspot.com wants to know:

I would like to know what the WWTK's participants serve when they have company for dinner. What are your go-to recipes?
It really depends on how large or small the group is and what other things are being served, if any, and how fancy or casual the event is.  If I were hosting a dinner group, casual, I would do a Cesar salad (very few ingredients, but a WOW!) , meat of tenderloin, either pork or beef (grilled of course), bread (buy it, don't be silly, there are so many wonderful natural, "good breads" out there, why bother?)  unless you are a huge baker.  A simple dessert, such as coffee ice cream/or butter pecan with a drizzle of chocolate sauce and an sprinkle of nuts, it's perfect.... Stick a cookie in it and everyone is happy!   It's all do ahead, room temperature (since the meat must rest anyway, dress salad, last minute, simple but elegant).  Totally no stress.


 If it's a large group gathering, I'd do Chicken Salad (make ahead)  stuffed tomatoes (Roma's cut in half)  (right before)  and country ham rolls with apple butter.

like this.  beautiful and delicious.  This was a 50th birthday party... for 40people.

2}Jill @ http://jills-world.blogspot.com wants to know:
If you were told it was time for your last meal, what would you order up or make for yourself?
Seafood, every kind, shrimp, crap, scallops, oysters, clams, and on and on..... and all I can eat!!  $crew making it myself, if it's my last meal and I HAVE a choice,....  add some whole grain pasta, asparagus, thrown in some cheese and herbs and take me LORD!.... a glass of wine would be Divine....
{3}Suzanne @ http://suzannewynnell.wordpress.com/ wants to know:
Sugar or alcohol? or more delicately Drink or Dessert?
I am not a huge "sweet" person.  A bite takes me a long way.  I cannot understand people who  can sit and and eat a HUGE snickers bar in 5 minutes...???alone...   OMG ???, One bite and I'm O.U.T.!!  I'll take a glass of wine for my dessert anytime of the day or night!! and I prefer it to be red! 
BUT, My favorite desserts would be Key Lime Pie, Red Velvet Cake and last but not least....  drum roll please!!
Coconut Cream Pie, but I still only want a bite or two.... 
{4}Myya @ http://myyasays.blogspot.com/ wants to know:
What is your favorite Crock Pot Recipe?
Boston BUTT baby.  It's the one thing you can put in a crock pot and not screw up.  Just buy one that fits YOUR crock pot well and the lid fits, salt, pepper, put the lid on and be so happy tomorrow and for more days than you can imagine!!  My next....   would be a turkey breast, no fail.
{5} Mamarazzi is having a hard time getting breakfast in everyday so she wants to know:
What are you eating for breakfast these days?
Low fat Greek yogurt with honey...  when in a hurry or on work days.. throw in a few blueberries... or
One egg, (in the microwave) on whole wheat flax seed toast...  YUM... protein or  
Real oatmeal..  I add flax seed, natural sunflower seeds, one packet of truvia and tons on Cinnamon and sometimes dried cranberries... 
Breakfast foods are not my faves, especially not sweet things, (unless it's a Cinnabon) and then I'll suffer through it!, but I try to do something healthy!  Toast and Almond Butter is my default breakfast....  Use up to  2 teaspoons over your hot toast.   I make my own almond butter, and sometimes add thinly sliced banana or apple and it is delicious!! satisfying and yummy for the tummy!  
Well, that's more than one, but who's counting?
 Hope you will try one or more.  See ya tomorrow...
Love and hugs,  Ginger
Hope you all will visit Mamarazzi and link up to

  1. Make your own almond butter? Really? I've had it from the health food store. I can't imagine making my own.

  2. I think you need to reopen the Spicy Lemon!!!! You have listed some of my favorites here, Ginger. Now I am craving coconut cream pie!!! :D I have never cooked a Boston butt in the crockpot. The kids love them, and bands in our district sell them for fundraisers! I need a tutorial, pretty please!

  5. I'm definitely not a coconut fan. I go for anything chocolate if I'm going to indulge :)

  6. Looks like you enjoy entertaining! I haven't had a party in a while and this warm weather has me itching to have people over!

    I am SO one of those people who could eat a whole Snickers bar in 5 minutes. If there were no consequences, I could eat 2!!!

  7. Mmmm, coconut cream pie is one of my favourites...But I can never just stop at a bite or two. That person that can eat a huge Snickers bar in 5 minutes? That's me. I've only just discovered my "sweets" side in the past few months, and I can't.get.enough. Terrible, I know.

  9. i'm thinking you must be thin.

    everything you make sounds healthy and you stop at a bite or two of dessert. i wish i could say i do thay but nope. i would start with dessert and end with dessert. with dessert on the side.

    great answers. thanks for linking up.
