Spice It Up With Rosemary

by Nicci on 01/12/2011

I definitely had a crisis last Friday afternoon, after checking my email to see a reader say ”where has your blog gone… I just discovered it?”

I freaked out, for a moment and then I immediately called my hosting services.  After some frustration and tearing up, on the phone with a customer service agent, my domain was fixed.

I started tearing up while thinking about all the posts, comments and fun moments I’ve shared on the blog, with friends and family.  Apparently, the developers at Go Daddy said a  plug-in may have locked up my blog post, all side bars were still visible.  Scary thing  is, I haven’t logged into my dashboard in weeks or updated plug-ins. I can see all past and present blog posts through Google Reader, so what was the deal?  I’ve only updated the blog earlier this week,  through Windows Live Writer and now I’m scared to use writer again…Eeccck!

Last week I mentioned, I planned to save money this year. I’m excited to say, I am now ”car payment free” meaning more money in my pocket to save!

Food from last night:

Roasted Rosemary Sweet Potatoes over Rice and Grilled Pork Chops

I love cooking with rosemary and adding it to omelette’s, pasta sauces and seasoning meats.

Welcome Back!!

Please excuse my spammy tweets last night, but I was too excited for the season premiere of  ”The Game”.

I’ve loved this show from season one and was very disappointed in the CW network for cancelling it, but BET listened to the dedicated fans and brought this show back to TV, after almost two years of being off the air. Now, if only we could get Girlfriends back on the air…then everything would be fabulous.

Have a great Hump Day!

What are your favorite herbs and spices, that make it into your daily dishes?

Any old TV show you would love to see on the air, one last time?

Glad everything worked out with your domain–sometimes servers can be frustrating!

Aww! Well I’m glad you’re here and back in the game! Speaking of The Game… my mom is IN LOVE with that show. I’ve got to start at season one and work my way up to the present. I saw a couple of episodes and loved it!

Those sweet potatoes look delish! I’ve got to make them more often. M’s always yelling at me about spicing things up ;) Hahah.

Phew! It is so scary when stuff happens to the good ol’ blog huh?! Thank goodness it is all taken care of and you can breathe a breath of fresh air!

I have never seen the Game, but am interested now! Thanks!

Glad you got everything sorted out with your blog. Sounds like a frustrating mess. I really just love to use black pepper. Some herbs do not agree with me (I am allergic to some things, like mint, so certain herbs irritate my mouth), but then other times I am fine with things I would think I would not be able to handle. It’s weird, I know!

My favourite herb is definitely cilantro. I use a lot of it!!!

I would like to see Full House again, or 6 Feet Under.

I would flip if my blog just disappeared one day. But then I would start singing “Reunited and it feeeeeeels so good” when I got it back :)

Apparently, I need to start watching the Game. Everyone and their mother was facebooking about it last night and I had no clue what it was!

Glad you got the contents of your blog back.

Haven’t see The Game. I’ve still glued to Prison Break. Hmmm, a show that I would like to see back? The Sopranos. Can’t think of anything else right now.

I love basil, cumin and mint…

I use cilantro and basil like there is no tomorrow – they make everything better! (well everything mexican and italian respectively hehe)

I went to Freebirds and stuffed my burrito full of cilantro…love it.

ahhhhhhhh! I would have freaked out if my blog disappeared too! Glad you got everything back and working! I really love rosemary with potatoes. So delicious. I’m also a big fan of ground red pepper- gives soups a great kick

I’ve finally been able to add you to my google reader! I love rosemary and am trying it out on everything. I love it on roasted chicken and french fries (when I ate french fries). I’m trying to have a solid grasp on eating and living better. Your blog is a breath of fresh air for me! Keep blogging!!!!

Nicci January 12, 2011 at 6:58 pm

Thank you Sandra!

I think rosemary is so good on any potato. Just a great match. I think my favorite herb is probably basil…parsley is a close second though.
