we have a name....and EGGS !

thank you all for your name suggestions...winning entry is from the other resident foodie cook (the old one - the young one doesn't cook for himself at home much, despite having been a culinary tech student for a year of high school). I'm still tweaking the format, not 100% satisfied with the way everything looks yet - but at least we have a name !

In the meantime, since he won and all, the first official food post will be something he made - Spicy Pickled Quail Eggs. He's been trying to get me to eat pickled eggs for years, and so far I've resisted....but I promised to try the quail ones, and I have to say they are really good - and quite addictive ! He's not one for recipes so much, but here is approximately what he did :

Spicy Pickled Quail Eggs

24 hard boiled quail eggs (boil gently about 5 -6 minutes)
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tbs pickling spice
1 Scotch Bonnet pepper, chopped
3 cloves fresh garlic
1 small Vidalia onion
1 1/2 cups white vinegar
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup water

Slice onions and garlic. Dice chili pepper and put in sauce pan with its seeds. Add the white vinegar, cider vinegar, water, and spices, bring to a boil, then let cool slightly.

Put peeled hard boiled eggs, sliced onions, and garlic in glass jar. Pour in sauce, cover jar tightly, and refrigerate. (If sauce doesn't fill the jar, top off with white vinegar until it is about 1/4 inch from the top).

Let sit 2 - 3 days

Yum !
