Roasted Beet Salad with Hemp Heart Crusted Goat Cheese1-9194

I was sent free samples from Manitoba Harvest for this post, but all opinions are my own!  Giveaway information is located right before recipe.

You guys know that little isle up near the cash register at the grocery store?  The one where they put all the fun stuff like chapstick, ear buds, and mini lint rollers.  All this stuff that you never realized you needed until you see it right before you pull your credit card out to pay for your groceries and snacks that you probably didn’t need either?

20 Gluten Free Super Bowl Recipes

20 Gluten Free Super Bowl Recipes

When I first decided to do a recipe round-up post like this, I wasn’t sure I was going to have enough recipes.  But, it turns out I’m a snack-aholic and had many more game day foods in my archives than I thought!  Although I don’t always have an opinion on who wins the Super Bowl game, I have a very strong opinion on what I’m eating while watching (or more realistically, watching/reading trashy magazines/stuffing my face).

Baked Taquitos with Black Beans & Sweet Potato

Baked Black Bean & Sweet Potato Taquitos-8654

Taquitos and I go way back.  When I was in high school, I used to go over to a friend’s house everyday after school and we would eat taquitos as our afternoon snack.  They were microwaved and probably had some type of fake cheese inside of them, but I loved them.  I loved them so much that a few years ago I went hunting for the cheese ones in the frozen section and was so excited when I found them.  I got them home, heated them up, and they didn’t taste at all how I remembered them tasting.  Although, there might have been something else clouding up my memory (and making things taste better than they actually tasted) back then, if you know what I mean!

Roasted Sweet Potato & Broccoli Winter Bowls-8561

A few weeks ago I went to a talk about food (what to eat, what not to eat, what is healthy, what is bad for you, etc…).  At the beginning of the lecture, the woman had everyone close their eyes and picture their ultimate comfort food.  Then she asked for people to yell them out.  People yelled out things like, pizza, macaroni n’ Cheese, and mashed potatoes.

Roasted Root Vegetable Soup

Roasted Root Vegetable Soup-8436

I’m recently realizing how much of a wimp I am when it comes to the cold weather.  I lived in Montana for two years and I’m still trying to figure out how I braved all the cold and the snow.  These days, the minute the temperatures hit below 60 degrees I’m pulling out the jackets, scarves and mittens!
