S'More Poutine

S’More Poutine

This really needs no intro. Who needs to explain dessert porn? Many of you have heard of poutine.  It basically french fries with gravy.  Well... I've always found it to be a bit overwhelming.  I don't love white potatoes or gravy.  I do love sweet potatoes and almost anything sweet. This is going to sound really strange... but I hand-on-the-Bible swear it's good. I kept it simple by using sweet potato crinkle fries from the frozen section at Fresh Market. While they baked, I whipped up a quick peanut butter sauce.  If you haven't had sweet potatoes with nut butter... well, you're missing out on a truly amazing #strangebutgood combo.  Top all that with marshmallows and pop in under the broiler to achieve that crunchy s'more char.

Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Shake

Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Shake + WIAW

Water makes me pee. As it should. I drink a TON of water.  In addition to it being a standard part of any competitor's diets, I live in the South and it's August.  Cold water is like gold.  There are many benefits of drinking a lot of water - I did a post on it. Someone commented on … [Read More...]

Any Excuse to Party

My family loves a party. To say the least. Last Saturday would have been my dad's 59th birthday.  I froze him in my head at 52... it's weird to think he would have been almost 60 this year.  It may seem weird to some people, but we decided to have a little party in his honor with some … [Read More...]

Hatch Chile-Cherry Breakfast Wrap

Hatch Chile-Cherry Breakfast Wrap

Cooking is hard on one foot. Rather, motivating to cook is hard. I'm feeling a bit better now - limping much faster - but it was a struggle earlier in the week.   Sunday morning it took me 3 hours to convince myself to get up to make breakfast.  If you know me at all, you know that if I delay … [Read More...]

Healthy Office Snacks + WIAW

My office is a bar. A snack bar.  The brewery is next door. Eating healthy on the job doesn't have to be hard... or boring! I keep my office stocked with a few things that can accent any meal I bring (or buy, in an emergency).   Flavor Shelf - red pepper flakes, cinnamon, NuNaturals … [Read More...]

Simple Baked White Fish

Simple Baked White Fish

Seafood is a go-to in my kitchen.   That's the understatement of the year. I eat 5-6 meals a day.  Typically at least 2 of those meals involve seafood.  As some one who loves variety, I'm always on the hunt for strange new fishes to eat. When paiche went on sale at Whole Foods, I … [Read More...]

Creamy Blueberry Oatmeal

Laughter Is Good Medicine + WIAW

It takes a lot to shock me.   Even more than it takes to offend me. When I wrote Monday's post, I fully expected to get some hater comments.  When the opposite thing happened... I was blown away.  Not only did people leave a ton of comments, but they said nice things or even agreed! … [Read More...]

Confessions of a Child-Free Woman

Confession #1: I'll never confess anything too incriminating.   Confession #2: I ruined my political career by the time I was 13. Confession #3 Everyone around me seems to be having babies.  Apparently this is supposed to induce some biological clock thing.  In reality, it makes me … [Read More...]
