Loaded Yuca Fries

I have shared these loaded fries/nachos on my Instagram numerous times.  I even talked about them after I made them ALL. WEEKEND. LONG. awhile back.  Every time I make them I promise to share them with you and then I eat the whole pan and never do.

Well, I finally got my act together and made them WITHOUT shoving the whole thing in my mouth before I could get pictures.  This must be what adulting feels like.

I don’t think I like it. Loaded Yuca Fries | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Sweet Potato Dumpling Salad

This recipe was a series of, “Hmmmm… I wonder what would happen if I did this…?” Luckily, the cooking gods blessed me and at each experimentation step everything worked out.  I’m always amazed when my random thoughts turn into edible recipes but I guess that’s pretty much how ALL recipes come to be.  Someone thought of throwing a collection of things together and then eating that collection of things.

Muhammara with Za’atar Pita Chips

You know what’s really fun?  Listening to your husband try to say fun new words like muhammara and za’atar.  To be fair, it wasn’t until a few days ago that I even read the word muhammara let alone ate it or said it out loud and za’atar is a little funky with that apostrophe.

It’s mu (like in mud) ha (like in hum) mar (like in mark) a (like in uhhh) and za (like the end of pizza) a (this is silent… don’t say it) tar (like the black sticky stuff).

I’m not a linguist folks.  I just like words.  And food.  Always food. Muhammara with Za'atar Pita Chips | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading
