Green Juice Face Off

The juicing vs smoothie debate seems to be all anyone is talking about these days. Which is better for you? Which is the best way to get the nutrients from the fresh ingredients? How can you make a bunch of fresh vegetables blending into a liquid form taste good?

Apple Crisp Face Off

Has anyone else noticed that October is pretty much over? What the heck? It feels like this month, my favorite month, started last week, and now I look at the calendar and its over? I’m a bit annoyed and mostly mad at myself for not for not taking a break to enjoy it. Ugh.

Asparagus Face Off

Things have been a bit hectic at FTB lately.

Chipotle Turkey Chili (and a lesson in beans)

If you take away anything from this blog, is please be sure to cook your beans. Seriously.

I should have known this. I should have done this. But the truth was, I thought I could take a short cut, and that the beans I soaked over night would cook in the chili and would be done by the time we were all ready to eat. That wasn’t the case. Not in the least.

Sriracha Sweet Potato Salad

When Susan challenged me to a Potato Salad Face Off, my mind went blank. Potato Salad? But that’s just potatoes and mayo, right? How can I make a good Face Off recipe out of those two things? While mulling it over, my sweet potato obsession started speaking to me, and so I figured I would give it a whirl… Read more
