Four years. Seriously, I have been doing this for 4 years? At the same time it sometimes seems like it has been longer than that but what a great 4 years it has been! I’ve met some of my favorite food bloggers and they were all as awesome as I imagined they would be. I also ate a TON of great food along the way. Speaking of food, helping me celebrate this happy occasion are a few brands which I frequent including Chobani Greek yogurt, Dollop frosting, OXO, Peanut Butter & Co., and Red Jacket Orchards. And they all contributed party favors!

4th Blogiversary Giveaway:

Breakfast Nachos with Greek Yogurt Hollandaise Sauce

Is it breakfast for dinner, or dinner for breakfast? Enjoy these breakfast nachos any time of day with a homemade Greek yogurt hollandaise sauce.

Breakfast Nachos with Greek Yogurt Hollandaise Sauce 1

I have a confession to make. You know that egg dish commonly cooked for breakfast that starts with an “O”? Well I have been misspelling it my entire life. I have been spelling it phonetically as “omlet” and I swear I must have seen it written as such before or else it would not have been solidified in my brain. How many times have I ordered that dish at a restaurant and not noticed the spelling? News flash! It’s spelled “omelette” which in my opinion has too many e’s. Although upon further digging is appears that it may also be spelled “omelet” which is more tolerable. Unfortunately I was not consulted when they were working out the English language.

Today I did not make an omelet/omelette/omlet or however you want to spell it. I made nachos because today is national nachos day, and why not start celebrating early with nachos for breakfast. It’s not an omelet but it is breakfast food that involves eggs, cheese, and bacon. Oh and a homemade hollandaise sauce made with Greek yogurt.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Mix up this delicious smoothie with dark chocolate, peanut butter, banana, Greek yogurt, milk, and oats. Tastes like dessert without the guilt.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie 1

Between my adventures in Seattle and now LA I have not been eating all that healthy, not that I am complaining because it’s been delicious. To add to the food fest, last night my nephew Luke went trick or treating for the first time and I managed to sneak a couple pieces for myself (while adoring the cutest tool box on the face of the earth). And now today is college football-food day. I decided to mix up a slightly healthier peanut butter and chocolate recipe to balance out all the rest and feel slightly less guilty. I am also making up for the break in my gym work out schedule by lifting babies. Maybe some crunches with my newest nephew Griffin on my stomach or kicking my feet while big brother Luke sits on my feet. Quality time and a work out!

Pumpkin Spice Greek Yogurt Mousse

Fluffy mousse made with pumpkin spice Greek yogurt is a great way to end a fall day. Serve with a spiced cookie.

Pumpkin Spice Mousse 2

Holy food coma. Peabody has outdone herself giving Kita and I a foodie/root beer tour of Seattle and I’m not sure if I will ever be hungry again. Doughnuts, fresh Greek yogurt, burgers, lab-style cocktails, Greek food, short ribs, bread pudding, and more pastries galore. I even spent $100 on root beer yesterday, 43 bottles of root beer that I somehow didn’t already have in my collection of 108. Yea, I think I made that root beer store owner’s day. Eventually I plan to post some pictures recapping this adventure but for now let’s take a gander at some mousse. Pumpkin spiced Greek yogurt mousse in fact decorated with chocolate dipped speculoos cookies made out to look like graves because Halloween is this Friday.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Yogurt Covered Pretzels

It’s another #PBChocSat and #10DaysofTailgate mash up! And yet again another pretzel combination. I did not do that on purpose but evidently I have been craving the sweet and salty combo of peanut butter, pretzels, and chocolate. Thankfully that goes well with tailgating.

Today’s sweet treat may not be considered a healthy option but it is made with Greek yogurt. Any health benefits from the yogurt is cancelled out with the copious amounts of sugar used to create the coating. But feel free to convince yourself that they are not as bad for you, because that’s what I did as I nearly devoured the entire stock of them in one sitting.

What’s a tailgate without a little heat in the form of buffalo wing sauce? But just because we’re talking about buffalo wings does not mean it has to scare away the health-conscious or vegetarians. I made this buffalo dip healthier by using Greek yogurt based Ranch dressing and cream cheese, then veggie-fied it with cauliflower instead of chicken. Best part is that even the indulgent, meat-lover’s will enjoy this dip. Bake in the oven or warm in a mini slow cooker, then serve with celery, carrot, and chips!

Corn Spoon Bread

This moist and cheesy corn spoon bread pairs perfectly with your favorite chili or hearty soup, and it couldn’t be easier to make.

Corn Spoon Bread

Yesterday I gave you a cornmeal pizza crust topped with BBQ chicken and cheese. Today I present to you a corn spoon bread. Two savory recipes in a row, I know it’s unusual but I’m suddenly bursting with savory recipes. I blame football season (not that I am upset about it) and every store throwing fall in my face.

This corn spoon bread gets it’s name because it is so moist that you may needing to eat it with a spoon. Not surprising if you look at the ingredient list: eggs, corn muffin mix, kernel corn, creamed corn, sour cream, butter, and cheese. It is perfect served along side of chili or your favorite hearty soup for fall. Or just chow down on it because there’s no resisting a good corn bread, especially when it is topped with cheese.

Mini Reese’s-Oreo Cheesecakes

Reese’s and Oreo lovers unite! These mini Reese’s-Oreo cheesecakes not only have bits of peanut butter cup Oreo in them, but also as the crust. Top it off with a peanut butter-chocolate ganache.

Mini Reeses-Oreo Cheesecakes 1

As you may have noticed I love trying all the different kinds of Oreos they come out with. I stand by my belief that peanut butter Oreos were the best flavor ever. As such when I spotted the Reese’s peanut butter cup ones they jumped into my shopping basket. Their filling is half chocolate/half peanut butter giving them the flavor of a peanut butter cup sandwiched between chocolate Oreo cookies.

When I decided to chop them up and mix them into cheesecake I thought about making the cheesecake peanut butter flavored, but instead let the Oreos shine through on their own (not that I would’ve argued with more peanut butter). With Oreos as the crust, pieces in the cheesecake, and a peanut butter-chocolate ganache there’s nothing missing.

Blueberry Kale Smoothie

Not all healthy smoothies have to be green. Blueberries mask the green kale in this delicious smoothie.

Blueberry Kale Smoothie 1

Well. Last night’s game stunk. I scared the cat with my cries of anguish as I watched the painful 4 hour game, losing to an unranked Virginia Tech. I have to say they played extremely well for an unranked team. And Ohio State made a lot of mistakes. Guess if you have to lose, better to do it at the beginning of the season. But anyway, this is s food blog not sports so I’ll get on with it haha.

Want to know the trick to making the green color from healthy green stuff magically disappear? Apparently all you have to do is add blueberries. Believe it or not there is a full, packed cup of kale in this smoothie and only 1/2 cup of blueberries, yet all you see is this pretty purple smoothie. If you look closely you can see little flecks of green but who gets up close and personal with their smoothie? Drink up and feel good about it.

Nutty Edamame Dip

This nutty dip resembles the texture and versatility of hummus with a different flavor twist – edamame. 

Nutty Edamame Dip 1

If you are into college football then you are as excited as I am about tomorrow! Well you may be more excited than I am actually because upon hearing of the injury of the Ohio State QB’s shoulder I deflated a bit. However, that won’t stop me from watching all the games I can lay my eyes on and whipping up appetizers and desserts made of peanut butter and chocolate. Which means for the next several weeks PB+Choc Saturdays are back! Even if you don’t like college football you can appreciate from peanut butter and chocolate goodness. But that’s tomorrow.

Being the day before the game I decided it was a good time to post an appetizer recipe. Maybe I’ll make it a thing, “App Friday”. The first dip up for grabs is one that reminds me of hummus but instead of pureed chick peas it is edamame which creates a pretty green color. Different flavor of course, but just as versatile of a spread/dip. Chips, veggies, crackers, whatever you can find to scoop it up!
