ReVAMPing the Classics

It’s a new year and new adventures await us all. Since I'm not one to just wait for things to happen to me, I decided to give myself a challenge. A cooking challenge. But what should that challenge be?

I thought about some of the recipes I have developed and I realized that some of the ones I like the most are ones that are based in a classic recipe. A recipe, that I have taken apart and put back together in a Foodgasmic way. 

One of my favorite revamped recipes is the Green Bean Cass-a-rolls.  I loved the idea of the traditional green bean casserole, but wanted to find a fun new way of preparing it…. and eventually eating it.   And that resulted in this recipe and episode.

 

Also when growing up, I loved pineapple upside down cake. So I made a revamped and sexier version with my mango upside down cake using my favorite fruit the mango.  Mmmm, mangos!

 

So I wanted to challenge myself to something super fun this year. This is it: 2014 will be a year of “REVAMPING THE CLASSICS” for Foodgasm. A new revamped recipe every single week for a total of 50 recipes! I want to take those old, dusty recipes and revamp them into something new and totally fabulous. I would love any ideas of great recipes to revamp from our lovely Foodgasm fans.

I love the vintage look, style and feel for food and for my life. Putting a new spin on some of the classic foods will be a fun challenge for the new year for me. It’s fun to make something new out of something old “classic”. 

So bring on the New Year and let this sassy redheaded “Vamp” transform some classic dishes into something FOODGASMIC!

The first one will be . . .

Stay tuned. I'll give you a clue though. It's something simple. Something you'll have for breakfast. Any ideas of what it will be?
