FIVE years of blogging. I started for a few reasons but the main one, I love to cook and wanted to share recipes with others.
Many thanks to my 95 followers- each one of you are very special to me. I wish I could hug each of you.
I have a pinterest page- BestofLongIslandandCentralFlorida. I don't post on as many parties as I use to but new recipes are always added the day I add them to the blog.
To the hosts of parties I attend - thank you for allowing me to share recipes.
2016 was a good year for recipes on Best of Long Island and Central Florida. Many of my recipes were featured and hope they were enjoyed and became part of readers "keepers".
I did have one HUGE surprise. In 2015 I posted
Copycat Taco Bell *Bell Beefer *
The first week in January 2017,this recipe suddenly became extremely popular. This was a first for me. I didn't link it, I made it in 2015 and it wasn't featured. Someone saw it and posted it on facebook and from there it became popular for a few days. I will never know who saw it then shared. Who ever you are thank you!

I don't know how you did it, but this is an EXACT clone of the original and I want to thank you soo much! After 35 years, I finally got to enjoy these again. The meat mixture is right, the sauce is right to the original vinegar-based in the small plastic tubs with the foil on top you had to peal. If you follow this to a "T" and proportion, lean sirloin meat, it will be PERFECT! Like stated in the recipe, heat the buns ( I did 20 seconds with Kaiser in the microwave), add the tablespoon of sauce, add the meat and 2T of sauce on top. I then added, as I remember it with the cheese (not sure if mild or sharp, but i used mild), diced roma tomatoes, shredded lettuce with bun on top. BAM, absolutely perfect and amazing! I've been eating them all week!! Thank you, thank you for sharing! :)
This is the reason why I add recipes, I made someone whom I will never meet happy.
