First things first, a very happy one year BLOGAVERSARY to Tara over at Tara Tyler Talks, a writer with a great sense of humor and about the most loyal follower a blogger could ever ask for. If you haven't read her stuff, head right over and say hello. You'll laugh, you'll chuckle, you just might learn something new, and you'll be glad you checked it out.
In honor of her yearlong accomplishment blogging away, Tara has decided to host a blogfest party, full of delicious food and recipes for all to share and salivate over. So, I decided to join in the fun.
writercize: In honor of the food fest over at Tara's place, share your favorite appetizer or drink recipe. Here's the kicker though, the writercize twist - it must be in your own words.
