Just let me get my nerd moment over with: this website appeals to me on several levels. At first glance, it looks like an interesting forum-based website chock full of sassy (not flashy) graphics, links, and products. It is a platform for foodies to post recipes, photos, questions, and yummy goodness to their hearts' content. It's like a Facebook for people who love to cook!
When you do a search on JustAPinch for "tomato pie," you'll get several equally yummy-sounding recipes. However, anything with "bacon" will always pop out at me. Bacon Tomato Pie
by Kim Phillips-Randolph
- Ain't no shame in using pre-made pie crust. I used a two-pack of Pillsbury pie crusts.
- I did not realize I should have skinned the tomatoes, per the recipe. Oopsie! It didn't matter.
- Make extra bacon. Everyone smelling it in the house will want some. Especially the cook.

In total, the meal was about $25, the most expensive ingredient being that sauce. It is spicy/sweet, and brings out the sweet side of the pork.
Also, the tapenade is not kept with the other canned and jarred tomato products. (grr!) I eventually found it in the aisle marked "gourmet," "international." You can also try checking near the olives where they keep olive tapenade.

This is just a quickie post as an FYI.
Back in the daayyy, I was an avid blogger and blog follower. My Google Reader list is sickeningly long, but the fact is that I actually DO still keep up with a lot of blogs, HotMomsCook being one of them.
Several years ago, HotMomsCook was one of my favorite cooking blogs, and was one of the "standard" blogs I would list in my blogroll wherever I happened to be blogging at the time. (At the moment, you can find me at xoxoui.com)
HotMomsCook was a fascinating, well-written collaboration of cooking ideas and family news. I liked it mainly for the "fast" recipes that, when put together, didn't look or taste so "fast."
Somewhat recently, I did some digging around to see what has become of one of my favorite blogs (although it hadn't been updated in years--the content was still online, and still useful, and still great!)
I found that there is a lady who has put together a cookbook: "Hot Moms Cookbook." I sent her a quick message asking if she knew anything about the now-offline/dead blog because it was such a great blog. The author was nice, and I hope her cookbook does well--but no, she apparently is unrelated to the original authors of the HotMomsCook blog.
Anywhoo, at this point, I feel like some kind of weird stalker. ROFL!!!!
When I found out that the address hotmomscook.blogspot.com was available, I jumped on it. At this point, I think it's about time for me to have my own cooking blog of sorts. If anyone would like to join in, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I don't think that my intention is to ressurect hotmomscook.blogspot.com exactly. But we shall see--such is the morphing nature of blogs.
p.s. Just to clarify, I have no intention of stepping on anyone's toes, particularly that of the author of Hot Moms Cookbook. I have no interest in mixing up with anyone's vision. So, one of the first things I may do is create a list of awesome cookbooks and links to other cooking blogs. ;-) ♥
