Well friends, I had every intention of going back to Pick of the Week this week, but since I couldn’t find anything that struck my fancy at the grocery store, and because last week’s post was such a big hit, I’m going to do another roundup of my favorite posts. I think it’s a great way to expose my readers to some of the amazing blogs that i read!

So here we go:

For all of you that love the veggie burger at Northstar:

Try these burgers from The Healthy Hostess.


Have you ever wanted to make your own bagels?

Try the homemade version from Runs With Spatulas, or the blueberry version from Brown Eyed Baker.


Have you ever thought of putting these in your peanut butter?!

Oh yeah, Sarah at The Smart Kitchen went there and I can’t wait to try it!


How delicious do pork carnitas sound right now? Who needs Chipotle?

Try this recipe from Eccentric Kitchen! She even makes her own corn tortillas!


Like these?

How good does this recipe for Spicy Chickpea Salad from Joy the Baker sound? I love her picture collages as well :)


The hubby and I used to eat these all the time:

But now I have a recipe for the homemade version, thanks to Oliepants!


Do you think we should eliminate the use of the word diet?

LOVED this post about dieting from The Candid RD.


Think you can’t workout in the morning?

Read about how Beth transformed herself into a morning workout person! She has some great tips.


Cinnamon and sugar is one of my favorite combos.

So I absolutely must make this Cinnamon Sugar Pull Apart Bread from Joy the Baker.


Do you eat your emotions?

Check out Beth’s post on Emotional Eating.


And finally, we all know I love my crockpot.

Excited to try this new crockpot meat sauce recipe from AliGirl Cooks!

See anything that looks good?!

  1. Great post—this was fun to read!

    Definitely should get rid of the word diet—-even though it technically doesn’t mean “restriction” it is too widely understood that way. Lose the word, and we can work on how people think about food :)

  2. I love it when you do posts like this!! Thanks for the should out :)

    I need to go read the one about emotional eating, and the one about morning exercise. I did the same thing…transformed myself into a “morning exerciser!”. I always swore I would never be able to workout in the morning, but now I don’t know life without it!

    Have a great weekend :)
    Oh, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Northstar cafe!
