Food for Thought #2

Are the food police going to break down my door and arrest me for using my lemon press on a lime, then proceeding to store the other half of it in my lemon saver?

Hopefully not. As far as food and recipe conventionalism goes, however, I certainly don’t mind breaking the rules!

If you want to break the rules with some cool kitchen gadgets too, check out where you can get this lemon press and this lemon saver pod.

Cheers, my friends!

So Good it Hurts

Oh, why must homemade chocolate ice cream be so delicious? I just can’t help but devour this ticking time bomb of a brain freeze faster than I can dish it. The bottom of the bowl is nearly seen even before the top of the thick, fudgy glisten of the chocolate peanut butter sauce. Continue reading

Happy Holidays to All!

No matter what part of the word you reside in, and no matter what holidays and traditions you celebrate, I wish everyone the best of seasons possible. My Christmas feast consisted of top round roast rolled around asparagus and red peppers. I am not only thankful for the lovely food that graced my holiday table, but I am thankful for each and every one of you who is taking the time to read these words right now.

I am looking forward to an incredible 2018. Cheers!!

Gratefulness Never Expires…

Being a food blogger who emphasizes high-volume, better-for-you portions of food, I always want more. Bigger. Better. More awesome than the time before. That is not only how I construct my menu plans, but has also been my life tactic in general.

As there certainly are advantages to always pushing for the greatest great that is possible, sometimes it is good to balance those relentless efforts with the acceptance that things just might be terrific the way they are.

I reached into my pantry for a can of pumpkin to use for this year’s Thanksgiving feast, only to notice that it had passed its “best by” date this last October. My immediate reaction was to discard it and purchase a new one so that everything for my dinner would be the best it could be. After some time passed, though, I came to realize that it was actually rather unnecessary to turn my nose up at an innocent can of pumpkin. True; perhaps it was at its “best” before October, and now it will be ever-so-slightly degraded from its prime condition, but I still have this can of pumpkin, and for that, I am thankful.

I decided to use the pumpkin and enjoy it. It can be very humbling at times to be grateful for what we already have without asking for more.

Happiest of Thanksgivings to everyone, and I offer my utmost gratitude to all of you who have taken the time to visit and support my blog…cheers!!

I am not only thankful for my friends, family and a wonderful Thanksgiving feast to (almost) fill my bottomless stomach, but I am also thankful for all of YOU. Whoever you are; wherever you come from; whatever you do with your time–I greatly appreciate you taking a brief moment of it to visit my blog and share your interest in all things food. From the bottom of my stomach to yours, CHEERS!

 

A Full Week of Full Plates: Sunday

Throughout last week I gave you a look into my lifestyle of making high-volume food choices to deliver utmost portion satisfaction while steering clear of overindulgence. My apologies for this slightly delayed post for the final installment. Sometimes life gets busier than we expect, but I assure you, I indeed had the time to enjoy the following feast:
