Weekly FavoritesEvery Saturday, I go through Twitter with #foodblogger and find my favorite food related articles. These are this week's favorites!

I've been eating something like this every day for breakfast this year. So far, I feel better with a cleaner diet. I think it is a really good way to start the day.

Typically, we don't eat a lot seafood in my house. I'm probably the only one that likes it. I think I could sell something with garlic butter though.
I've always loved this combination as a sandwich. It's so fresh and simple. I think I spy some aromatic rosemary on this one!


Why would a meatlover's sandwich not have bacon on it? Either way, this looks amazing!
This is my favorite cake. It's so simple, yet so delicious. My son has requested a vanilla cake for his birthday coming up.

Honey Yogurt Breakfast Parfait

This is one of the ways I have been trying to eat healthier this year
Honey Yogurt Breakfast Parfait
I've been trying to follow a healthier diet. I've been limiting portions and most importantly, sugar. So far, I've been feeling much better overall, though with maybe slightly less energy. I expect that will correct itself as I get used to eating less and eating healthier.

One of the ways I have set out this healthier diet is to make it more routine. I eat the same thing each
day for breakfast and snacks throughout the day. For breakfast, I have been sticking to yogurt parfait made of fresh fruit, yogurt, and honey.


The Tools

  • Mason Jar
  • Spoon

The Ingredients

  • Plain yogurt
  • Honey
  • Fresh Fruit

The Method

The night before, gather the fresh fruit and get it washed and cut up. At the bottom of the mason jar, add two or three large spoonfuls of yogurt. Add in about a tablespoon of honey. On top of that, add in your fruit. I have been sticking with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. In the morning, stir everything up and enjoy.

Happy eating!

You really can't go wrong with braised beef, no matter what cut it is. Add in the apples and you've got a good thing going. Apples are one of my favorite fruits to cook with different cuts of meat, to get a good sweet and savory contrast.

This is really interesting. We make Beef Stroganoff at home about once a month. I may have to try this one, with only mushrooms. The rice is a nice substitute for the carb heavy pasta.

I like trying different ways to make cauliflower to keep it fresh and interesting. Think mashed cauliflower for instance. This roasted cauliflower is going to have to be one we try out at home too!

Reducing waste, not just food waste, is something we have been looking at at our house for at least the past year. Composting, limiting paper towels, recycling, cooking smaller portions. These are all things we've tried at home. What are you doing to help reduce food waste?

Weekly FavoritesAs you may have guessed, last week was pretty busy with family visiting for the holidays. So, I decided to take the week off from the blog. This, week I'm back with a new Weekly Favorites to start!

This week, it's all about cake!


Peanut butter and chocolate are a classic combination that were meant to be together. Look at that Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake!

I remember being somewhat of a gluten for Swiss Cake Rolls when I was a kid. This spice roll reminds me of a pumpkin roll my wife makes!

I've never seen a pizza cake before, but I think I'm in love!

I'm willing to overlook the fact that these are keto brownies, simply because the look amazing! Combining cheesecake and brownies is brilliant!

Give me some of these and some sushi, and I've got a meal. Something light and delicious!

I have never had one of these, but they look amazing!  I'm putting together my Christmas menu this week!

A blog devoted to pizza is something I could get behind! I don't think I ever met a pizza I didn't like!

Oreos and milkshakes are two of my favorite things. Putting them together might create one of my new favorite things!

One of my favorite last minute things to throw together for a party is baked brie. Second to that is some goat cheese with raspberry sauce on top. This basically combines the two!

Now that Christmas involves three little boys running around, we are more and more on the hunt for family friendly ideas that the everyone can enjoy. Decorating these iced biscuits together would be so much fun!
These barbecue smothered french fries stopped me in my tracks! Really, what more could you want?

Naughty naughty, though I can't blame him. I may not share it either!

Weekly FavoritesI hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break! I took a mini vacation with the family and am just getting back in to it. Here are the Weekly Favorites, if only a day late!

Spicy Chicken and Mango Salsa. A match made in heaven throw in some flour tortillas and you've got yourself a good night. 

I still can't get behind the instant pot craze. I've heard all about their many benefits. I just can't do it. It took me years to get behind the crock pot. All that said, this Italian Beef Sandwich looks pretty amazing!
I've always loved frosted gingerbread, especially around the holidays. These cupcakes may be something I'll have to make for the kids.


I realized that I talked about pizza last week, but let's be honest, I love pizza. There is no wrong to make it or eat it. As out in left field as this pizza may be, it looks damn amazing!
