Newzsocial and Eggs With Peppers and Hot Tomato Sauce
When you have an established food blog you get emails every day from companies and PR people, I usually click on the trash bin immediately because I want to avoid to feel offended and get angry because of stupid emails about giving free publicity from people who obviously haven’t even opened up my blog. To be honest, I also get interesting emails and offers as well from informed senders and I don’t mind those. About three months ago I was contacted by the lovely Audrey at Newzsocial about becoming a content partner on their new app and as I liked what she told me we set up a skype meeting so I could learn more about what makes Newzsocial different from other social news aggregations apps. I had tried some of the already existing ones on my iPad but I never really liked them because I had to read what they curated for me (to explore what curation means click here) so when Audrey explained how you can curate your own content on Newzsocial I immediately liked the idea. I feel that I need to tell you that Newzsocial are not paying me for writing this post, I do it because I really, really like the app and I would use it even if Lucullian wasn’t on it because through it I discover so much every day. I obviously subscribe to the channels dedicated to food but also to channels like science news, photography, art and design, European news and some more frivolous channels just to mention a few. And I have created my own channels based on key words so I can read about my special interests as well. You can share content you like on Facebook and Twitter and directly with your friends and because I am a partner, there is even a channel that I curate with things I like or find interesting that is available to the public. There are so much to explore on the app that I am incapable to explain but that Newzsocial do very well here and here but if you have an iPad (I’m not sure if it works on iPhones but do try) I would download it, it’s free, and explore it. It took me a little time to fully understand how it works (and the help of Audrey-thanks!) but then I didn’t look at the videos something you obviously will do, being smarter than I am. And if you do what I have done, suggesting more blogs and web sites, Newzsocial will get even better than it is now.
But now it is time for a recipe, an easy one today and a variant on one I posted years ago. I love the combination of eggs, peperoncino and tomatoes, it is the type of dish I turn to when I need comfort food or when I want to make a quick lunch that still is a meal. There is nothing better than dipping a piece of bread in the hot tomato sauce and I just realized that next time I make this, I will put a piece of toasted bread on a plate and then put the sauce, the egg and the peppers on top of it. That will add to the comfort factor, I can feel it already.
EGGS WITH PEPPERS AND HOT TOMATO SAUCE
250 ml/ 1 cup tomato sauce
peperoncino or chili pepper
half a bell pepper, sliced
extra-virgin olive oil
Heat up the tomato sauce with olive oil, peroncino or chili pepper in a small pan.
Fry the egg and the pepper slices in a skillet, save time and do it together.
Put the tomato sauce in a wide bowl or a deep plate and slide the egg and pepper on top. Get that slice of bread and a dip in!
