New York City here I come!

Exciting News!

NBC's Today Show has invited me to come to New

York to be on their program to cook my chicken

wing recipe!!! It's called.....

 'Wicked Wasabi Wings'

‘These wings are ooey, gooey finger licking, sweet
 and spicy and literally grabs your Senses and your
Tastebuds  with your first bite. They are delicious
and addictive with  powerful punches of distinctive
yet delectable flavors!’

This is what I sent to NBC to describe my 'Wicked
Wasabi Wings.' And I was one of three winners out
of untold  hundreds of entries. I was absolutely
flabbergasted! I am SO thrilled and excited to be
chosen and to be able to have this fun and delightful
But quite honestly I’m a nervous wreck!! 

I want to invite you to join me by watching
This FRIDAY, February 1st
Between 8:00 am and 8:30 am.
I’ll be posting the RECIPE on Friday. I have to keep
it a secret until then. So be sure to check back on
 Friday. We will be taking lots of pictures in New
York and I will be posting those when we get back.
THANKYOU for joining me and sharing in my
excitement!! I can't wait to share every detail of our
 trip with you.

A New Look and New Name

Greetings Friends.
  Well as you can see my blog has been completely revamped.  LOVE the new header and all that has been done to the rest of the blog. A brand new blog button and now categories to make navigating my blog easier . And a New Name.....Lady Nann's Table. In other parts of my life and I am known as Lady Nann. I've had the psuedo name for quite awhile and was encouraged to name my blog with it. Among other things I am also known as Lady Nann the Grandmother Fairy. For many years I have been giving 'Fairy Parties' to delighted children. It's a fun fantasy and the kids love it. So the 'Grandmother Fairy' will be having a feature occassionally in my posts. I hope you like her as well as the kids do.

I want to THANK  Linda Primmer from Life and Linda

 She is my blog designer and I think she is terrific. She's not only creative but a fun person to work with. I saw her blog designs on some of my friends blogs 

 Liz from

I had previously done my homework and looked and corresponded with many wonderful blog designers. Once I found Linda though, I knew she was the gal for me. She is a whiz on the computer and does anything you want OR you can give her free reins and she'll come up with a custom design to reflect you. If you're interested in sprucing up your blog or even starting one,  then do consider Linda. She is reasonably priced too. One thing she had me do, was change my url from blogspot to .com. And it only costs $10 a year which is dirt cheap. That way it's a lot less verbage and easier for my family and friends to remember.  

THANK YOU for joining me today.  Let me know what you think. I hope you like my new blog as well as I do.

From my Table to Yours,
I will be joining these linky parties:

Baby it's (still) cold outside....warm up with comforting SOUP

This has been such a bitter cold January. Here in my neck of the woods the temperature has been around 5 degrees for weeks on end. The most wonderful comforting food to deal with this cold is SOUP! Here is a recipe I created a few years ago & it's delish!

Italian White Bean Soup

It's chock full of good things like Italian sausage, lots of vegetables and white beans in a yummy thick tomato broth. Serve it with a loaf of crusty bread and a tossed salad and you have a meal.
Italian White Bean Soup

1 pound  bulk hot italian sausage  (you can use 1/2 ground beef  & ½ sausage)
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3 cups diced potatoes (for speed & convenience I use frozen southern style  hashbrowns)
2 stocks celery, diced
1 med large onion chopped
½ to l package julienned carrots (or grate 2-3 large carrots)
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
2 heaping tablespoons basil pesto
1 jar (24 oz) pasta sauce (I like Paul Newman’s Basil tomato)
1 – 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning or Herbs d’provence
6 – 8 cups chicken broth
2 cans great northern beans drained and rinsed
¼- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes or more if desired (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Fresh Basil leaves for garnish (optional)
Parmesan cheese grated (optional) 

In a large heavy pot,  brown the sausage until no longer pink. Add onions and sauté a few minutes until softened. Add remaining ingredients accept for parmesan cheese and the fresh basil leaves and stir well. Bring to a rolling boil and then turn down heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with the optional parmesan cheese and a few basil leaves in center. Serve. Makes 3-4 quarts of soup.

I know your family will LOVE this. And it's even better the next day. If you'd like, put it all together in the morning and put in a crockpot and cook on low for 7-9 hours. Add the beans the last two hours. ENJOY!

THANK YOU for joining me. It's always nice to have you drop by. Would love to know that you've been here. Your comments are always welcome and appreciated.
