Welcome to Loqwacious!! Where word play takes on new meanings. For full details on how to play Loqwacious on this blog or on Twitter, please visit the 'Be Loqwacious' page.

The word today is 'ANDANTE':

Looking for a challenge? Today brings something new: "Popular Potluck".
Bring today's word in the kitchen: Sautee it, whip it up, put it into your favorite recipe and eat it up happily!

Keep all entries clean, creative, and courteous.
Enjoy the game!

PS: We welcome all suggestions and comments. Just go to the 'suggestions' page and let us know what you think.


  1. The best casseroles MUST be cooked andante - that way the flavours merge and interpenetrate each other. Never try to allegretto your stew, or you will be in a pickle!

    But, you can eat it as vivace as you like, though even here, andante wins .. a long leisurely meal, with the company of good friends and a few bottles of good wine. Aaaah. That's the way :-)

  2. My husband likes his pasta 'Andante'. With pesto. The slow dance of basil, garlic, and parmiggiano make for an experience most delicioso. But I enjoy cooking allegro. Olive oil, herbs, pine nuts in the food processor; press the button. It tutto finito! Perfect!

    Bon Appétit les amis! :)

  3. When andante I eat raw. Vegan. Bread baked in a hot-by-the-sun rock is welcome. Fresh water is nice. From the well.

  4. one foot in the grave
    one foot on a banana peel
    as precarious a situation
    as pre-heating the oven
    for banana bread
    for best results
    do not pre-heat the oven
    do bake in a slow oven ~ andante
