There are about a million corny ways I considered starting this post. But I restrained myself from St. Patrick puns. Instead, I wanted tell you a little secret, Shamrock Smoothies and Shamrock Smoothie Bowls are usually pretty gross. (I mean, matcha is great, but please don’t put in my shamrock beverage.) Except this one. This one is actually tasty and is actually good for you. That’s a pot of gold if you ask me! Okay, I couldn’t help it!
Sometimes I need change. It’s not that I don’t love regular, plain-old pancakes. I do. But there’s just something magical and fun about trying something new! So when a bag of pistachios was glaring at me in my pantry, I knew I needed to do something about it. I grabbed those pistachios and created something I like to call Pistachio Strawberry Pancakes.
It’s a problem. I kind of spend most of my day dreaming about food. I dream about eating it and I dream about creating things with it. Well, maybe it’s not a problem, considering I’ve chosen a career in food. I love a good food challenge too. I love when someone says, “well, I’ve got this and this and this, what can I make out of that?” They see a road block, but I see an awesome way to channel my food creativity. Case-in-point, this Pistachio Ras El Hanout Dip.
I sometimes don’t know how to leave well enough alone. I mean, what’s wrong with a brownie? Why do I need to mess with it? Because I’m me and that’s just what I do. Afterall, what could be so bad about a Chocolate Dipped Brownie? The answer? Nothing. Not. A. Thing.
Fast fuel. That’s what I think of when I hear the word “smoothie.” And an image of a tall, delicious glass of yum makes its way into my head. Smoothies provide a unique solution to the problem of what nourishing food I can get my hands on quickly. Loaded with fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and all of the good stuff, you can easily make this fast fuel that will provide so much incredible nutrition!
I believe that it’s just a good party if the food is so-so. I believe it’s a GREAT party if the food is delicious. Who’s with me!? Hopefully you all are! So scrap those Pigs in a Blanket this year. Instead, make these festive Holiday Empanadas!
If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for ways to re-invent the food you eat. Sometimes this is a good thing, other times, it’s not such a good thing. In the case of these Sriracha Sweet Potato Fries, it’s a VERY good thing.
Listen, things are busy around here, so I’m not going to write a long-winded post. For some reason I feel you’re not sad about that. And honestly, I’m cool with that. I simply want to bring you this awesome recipe so that you have it in time for the holidays. So here it is, my recipe Easy Roasted Root Vegetables!
