I am so excited today because I have a special guest in the house. Please pour yourself a cup of tea or coffee, sit back and relax. I want to tell you about Rebecka who helms At Home with Rebecka out of Colorado. She is a mom, a grandmother, an awesome chef, and also a professional musician. Rebecka is also my friend and one who has given me much support and encouragement in our journey together as fellow bloggers.
Rebecka’s blog is all about family, good food, and fond memories. She shares fantastic recipes alongside family pictures and stories on her blog. She also enjoys competing in cooking competitions and loves singing in the opera. In her post entitled My Opera Journey Photo Album, you will be treated to some amazing pictures of her in various opera roles. She has performed in over 18 professional productions like My Fair Lady, Madame Butterfly, and Die Fledermaus. I wish I could have seen her in those productions. I hope you will visit Rebecka soon. You can also find her on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Since today is Mother’s Day, Rebecka has a treat for us. She is going to share not one, not two, but three delectable recipes with us. In honor of all our mothers she has recreated three of her own mom’s favorite dishes. Without further ado, please welcome Rebecka…
Hi, my name is Rebecka Evans. I was deeply honored when Biren asked me to write this guest post for Mother’s Day. I hope to do her blog justice as I try to live up to her impeccable standards!
I stumbled upon Roti n Rice the first week of my food blogging sojourn. I was wowed by her exceptional blogging techniques, recipes and photography skills. What a pleasure to have Biren be my unwitting teacher these past two years as I’m continually inspired by each new blog post. I can’t imagine my blogging experience without her.
Biren is a treasured fellow blogger. Thank you my friend!
At Home with Rebecka is all about recreating fond food memories, what I like to call “A Culinary Journey of Comfort and Style”. My blog began on a whim and has since turned into a deep love for food blogging, an immense passion for food writing, styling and food photography! I also have to confess, I’ve become a food competitor junkie!
I’ve had the honor of winning a few challenges in my food blogging career. My most recent win, the Real Women of Philadelphia Cookbook Challenge with my Fig Tart with Philly Frangipani and Strawberry Ginger Cream. My photo and recipe will be published in this season’s cookbook alongside recipes from other RWOP winners and Ms. Paula Deen! Yea! I also won $500!
Another proud moment was winning the Marx Foods Mixology Challenge, Recipe Impossible! My recipe Bite My Sweet Tarts-tini really had me thinking outside the box. The competition main ingredient… Szechuan buttons; a potent little flower with a tingly after bite! Please stop by my blog to view these recipes and more.
It’s Mothers Day, and what a perfect opportunity for me to share some delicious food memories with you by recreating three of my mother’s favorite dishes – Oyster Stew, homemade Oyster Crackers and Divinity.
Mom aka Anne, was a masterful home cook. She was always eager to try new and unusual foods, way before they were popular or trendy. Garden to table, her recipes were inventive and delicious. I still remember her fried squash blossoms with a fresh cut garden salad, sweet hand picked cherry tomatoes tossed with tender blue sorrel blossoms and spicy chives, all dressed in sweet vinaigrette. While most of our family and friends were eating TV dinners we were enjoying mom’s culinary adventures.
Mom is retired from the kitchen now, leaving preparation of holiday and big family meals to me and my three brothers. A torch I’m happy to share with future generations.
Generally classified as a candy, fudge and sometimes used in a candy roll, Divinity is similar to nougat but lighter in texture; a cloud of soft sweetness with a pecan crunch. I guarantee this simply made candy will satisfy your biggest sweet tooth!
Biren and loyal followers of Roti n Rice, Thank you! It’s been a pleasure sharing my mom’s favorite recipes with you today!
Thank you Rebecka for such a beautiful post and your kind words about me. I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day. I miss my own Mom on this special day as she lives far away, but I got to talk to her over the phone last night. I am happy that I will be seeing her soon.
Wishing you my dear readers, a joyous day filled with love, warmth, and good food! 8)
