Here’s another collection of fun and/or interesting things spotted recently. Please help yourself to this potluck of links.
Anyone make a New Year’s resolution about losing weight? Read Seven Things I Wish I Knew When I Was Over 300 Pounds & Decided To Lose Weight from In Johnna’s Kitchen. Johnna also tweeted a link to this post which asks “What if the only resolution you had was to have more fun?” That plus a brownie a day should do the trick. If you like cute dogs, you’ll love Johnna’s upbeat Instagram feed. Speaking of reality, here’s another excellent post from Shirley at Gluten Free Easily on Substitutions and the Power of CTRL F and much more. I couldn’t stop nodding in agreement as I read it.
What a gem: Inside Kitchen Arts & Letters, the Legendary NYC Cookbook Store. I could browse in a store like that all day.
Splendid photos from a courthouse wedding taken by Corey Woodruff. I love everything about this. And those red shoes? Fabulous.
In case you missed it, I shared recipes for Instant Buche de Noel, Mint Crinkles + 1o favorite cookie recipes, Easy Vegan Pizza Crust, and Resolution Brownies. And more food photos landed on foodgawker. Point and shoot, ftw.
Still here? Hope you’re thirsty.
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup coconut yogurt
- 1/2 cup beet juice
- Club soda to top off
In a large cup, combine chia seeds, milk, yogurt, and beet juice. Add club soda to top. Because bubbles are always fun.
For this smoothie, I used milled chia seeds. In case you don't see chia at your store, be sure to ask before assuming it isn't carried. Even then, it pays to look around for yourself. I found those milled chia seeds on the bottom shelf of the baking aisle in a local store and then informed the store's manager of the location.
Did you know that beets are distantly related to venus fly traps? Yep.
