Drink the Book: 'Thoroughly Modern Milkshakes'

I used to get Jamocha shakes after swim meets when I was younger...So.damn.good.

Cook the Book: 'The Sweet Potato Lover's Cookbook'

I could live off sweet potatoes. They are my absolute favorite food. And while do I love them in various recipes nothing beats a plain baked sweet potato. Nom nom nom :)

Cook the Book: 'Around My French Table'

Rwanda. To eat and enjoy the real food of such an amazing culture that I had never even heard of was truly an amazing experience. Loved all of it.

Are There Foods You Can't Keep In The House?

1. Ice cream (I've been known to make a whole pint of B&J Phish Food disappear in one sitting...this is why if I want ice cream I go to an ice cream shop and never bring home any from the store.)

2. Cereal. In particular, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Frosted Flakes, or Honey Nut Cherrios. (I don't even allow myself in the cereal isle anymore. It's just too dangerous.)

3. My mom's rice pudding. (Thank god she only makes it once a year at Christmas. Instead of eating like most people do on Thanksgiving, which I am not a big fan of, I save all my calories for rice pudding at Christmas.)

4. Peanut Butter. (I haven't quite mastered this one yet. But hey, in my credit, I buy the all natural, just peanuts, kind from Whole Foods.)

5. Cauliflower. (Yes, I know...weird. I love roasted cauliflower but I literally can eat an entire head in one sitting. I just can't stop.)

6. Mexican restaurants. (The chips, the guac, the salsa, the margaritas, the burritos...put it in front of matter how big the portions...I will clean my plate. I try to avoid them at all costs now.)

Coconut Butter

@luswim06, how do you add it to your oatmeal? do you add anything else? that sounds the a delicious idea. As does the addition to banana bread...mmmm

Cook the Book: 'My Bread'

I made my mom breakfast in bed last mother's day which included (my first ever attempt at bread) cinnamon raisin toast (her favorite). I loved it most of all (not because it was pretty dang tasty) but because she loved it. :)

Fun food for a baby shower

since the guest of honor can't drink, maybe a milk martini with a cookie as a garnish...
