Not Another Food Blog

This blog will not be about food. I won’t talk about my favorite new purchase, the Magic Bullet (get it at Costco), or about the many smoothies and green drinks, among many other tasty delicacies like hummus I’ve whipped/blended up.

I also won’t talk about my new favorite cookbook, “Deceptively Delicious” and the fact that I’ve already made 12 of the recipes—Mac‘n’Cheese 1 being among our favorite and Tofu Nuggets being among Hylan’s least favorite (he calls them sponges, but hey he did eat them and didn’t say they were gross). I love “sneaking” extra vegetables in his vegetable-challenged diet.

I also won’t talk about the Ultimate Cheesecake I made for him on his birthday that I decorated with a Curious George-esque monkey face. Despite the fact that it tastes really delicious, it has been a week and we’ve only eaten about a quarter of it. It just goes to show that I enjoy making sinfully delicious rich treats more than I actually like eating them.

Curious George would have looked better had I made ears

I also won’t talk about Magleby’s and their delectable fare. I’d recommend the Smothered Chicken Breasts with Cinnamon Butter Sweet Potato and Asparagus, the Alaskan King Crab legs, the Tomato Pesto Soup, and any Burger, Salad, and Dessert (especially their Chocolate Cake) they make. Yumm-o!

No, this blog won’t be about food…I’ve posted too much about food and eating and watching the Food Network. I won’t talk about the creative foods I’ve made and the new recipes I’ve devised. No, I can’t talk about food this blog, because who wants to read another post about food? Besides, it’s making me hungry...

Sheesh, I think I’m obsessed. It’s a good thing I work out so much because food is one of my joys and definitely one of my creative passions. So, maybe next time I’ll blog about the joys of cardio, strength training, and yoga – hint, burning calories means more food for my tummy!

Emily, I got the Deceptively Delicious Cookbook for Christmas. I love it! I love veggies, but it's awesome how you can incorporate them into recipes you would never think of. When are you writing your own cookbook?! You better make sure to let me know!
