Cake Batter Bark.
also known as “the discovery that caused me to literally drool on my computer last night”.
recipe over at How Sweet It Is.
This could be a really fun gift/favor in a cute box or jar!
Or I could make it and pretend to give it away…
I challenge anyone to come up with a $12 dish in the DC area that is more delicious, unique and satisfying as The Atlas Room’s pan roasted chicken breast with gnocchi, rutabaga, apple, red onion and pomegranate caramel sauce.
I think I may have found a new favorite restaurant last night…
On top of the potent cocktails, impeccable company, and fond memories (Andrew took me on our very first date there), the food was delicious, and I’m still having dreams about the tableside guacamole. Ohhhh, it’s so good.
Thanks again for the perfect start to my birthday week, Janie-poo!
Andrew, if you are nice to me, I might make this for you…
Best BJ’s shopping trip purchase: 12 Sabra Hummus Singles for $4.99
Currently enjoying with baby carrots. Delish.
Per Amy’s recommendation last week, a few of us went and had breakfast burritos at Spider Kelly’s for brunch this morning. Mine was super scrumptious and kept me satisfyingly full all day. At $6 a pop, I’d agree this is a pretty darn good deal.

In a medium pan, heat oil on medium heat. Add chopped onions, garlic, parsley and red pepper. Saute until soft, about a minute. Add chicken and season with cumin and salt. Add beans and 1 to 1-1/2 cups of water and simmer for about 5-10 minutes, until it thickens and the liquid reduces. Adjust spices to taste.
Preheat oven to 350°. Cut peppers in half removing seeds and stem. Place peppers in an oven-proof dish. Fill each pepper with 1/3 cup of chicken and bean mixture. Pour about 1/3 cup water or chicken broth on the bottom of the dish. Cover tight with foil. Bake 30 minutes at 350°. Remove foil, top with cheese and bake uncovered another 5 minutes.
MorningStar Farms Grillers California Turk’y Burgers
I’m not a huge fan of veggie burgers, they typically taste weird and rubbery to me, but these are DELICIOUS. They have chunks of real avocado and tomato in them, and whether you grill, bake or microwave the patties, they taste so good. Add some lettuce, a slice of tomato, mustard, ketchup, served on an Arnold Sandwich Thin bun. Yumm-O.
They’re healthy, too! 90 calories, .5g saturated fat, 9g protein and 5g fiber.
Do yourself a favor and try these!
The new flavors of Laughing Cow light cheese wedges make me happy…

Dinner at Surfside in Glover Park. Yum.
In keeping with my love of celebrity chef airport restaurants, I just had some breakfast at Wolfgang Puck in Terminal B at DIA. I wasn’t too impressed. Hate to tell ya Wolfy, but Gordon’s Plane Food at Heathrow definitely takes the cake.
Side Thought - why are 80% of my posts about food? It’s kinda gross, actually. Note to self: no food posts for 2 weeks.
I went to one of the best meals of my entire life last night. Hands down.
My good friend Trevor and his buddy Mike accompanied me to Fruition on 6th Ave and Downing in Denver, CO. It’s a phenomenal quaint little restaurant rated #3 in town with a super awesome menu. In addition to cocktails and crudités, we ate:
I REALLY recommend trying this place next time you’re in the Denver area. Mmm, just thinking about it…
Just boarded a Frontier Air flight to Denver (going on a work trip for the rest of the week) and I’m literally STARVING! Can’t remember the last time I was this hungry.
Airplane food ‘for purchase’ is terrible. Cheddar Cheese Curds? Oi vey… guess beggars can’t be choosers.
Happy Wednesday y’all!
