June Traffic and Income Report – $32,971.75

Hiya friends! Bjork here. Lindsay and I are back at it this month after last month’s Q&A report. Thanks to everyone that submitted a question. You new ’round these parts, pardner? If so, pull up that thar chair and lemme explain what this post is all about. Many moons ago Lindsay and I decide to do an experiment. In a moment of (un)inspired brainstorming we decided to call it “The Food Blog Money Making Experiment.” Indeed, the name wasn’t creative, but it was clear: we were going to experiment with creating an income from a food blog. Every month Lindsay and I tally up the numbers, take screenshots, review notes, draft, erase, re-write, research, message back and forth, email back …

Healing Bowls with Turmeric Sweet Potatoes, Poached Eggs, and Lemon Dressing

Brown rice, red quinoa, turmeric sweet potatoes, lightly dressed arugula, a poached egg, pistachios, and lemon herb dressing. !!!! This is The Bowl Life. When did this concept of bowls come on the scene, anyway? All is know is that sometime between maybe last year and this very moment I’ve become completely obsessed with the idea and practice of piling a bunch of foods in a bowl and calling it all fun bowl names. Oooh I know let’s have Bangkok Curry Bowls tonight! or omgosh SO CRAVING a Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl! or Netflix + Healing Bowls tonight, for sure. I feel like it’s the millennial version of the casserole. The only thing about bowls is that how do you make them if you are feeding a …

What I Ate Wednesday • Week 3

Time for our weekly review! What I Ate Wednesday, comin in hot. This week’s highlights (and lowlights!) include: Naturally sweet desserts – and my mixed feelings on them. A big batch of granola that is giving me so much good snack-age. An accidentally terrible lunch. Just… it’s embarrassing. A new vegan pasta recipe that is my new BFF. Pre-Breakfast I woke up early with Solvi and was a) thirsty, and b) not thirsty for water. I know it’s super healthy to do the whole water / lemon / chug it down at 6am thing, but mornings are just not my favorite time to drink water. Give me coffee. Give me tea. Give me juice. I stayed away from all fruit …

Let Us See An Army Rise

Something amazing just happened, and it was this: You showed up and poured out love. Over the course of just 10 hours, you brought together $20,000 to feed kids without families in the Philippines. And then you WOULD NOT QUIT. In the following 5 days, you more than doubled our goal. As in 200% doubled. Because of you, the little boy in that first picture? the boy who arrived at the shelter with burns and scars and a whole lot of hurt, along with a shy smile and a little bit of a goofy side and a precious soul of unsurpassable worth? that little guy and many more just like him will have fish and vegetables and fruit for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the rest of the year, and you …

Sauteed Garlic and Tomato Lentil Salad

Hey. Lentils. I love them. I think we’ve talked about that. But I really do love them because they’re a really pretty brown color (ahem, NOT). They are so versatile and healthy and cheap and texturally amazing. I’ll cut myself off before you start to feel like this just a repeat of all of my lentil posts that I’ve ever done. Guess what? My friend Angie was here in Cebu this last week! I am working on a picturey-post for all you guys who like to follow along with all our adventures and mishaps here in the Philippines. In a superbusy week, we made it in and out of the market alive, soaked up a wee bit too much sun …

Peanut Butter Banana Flax Muffins

Oh, yes. I went there. And I went here, too. Not on purpose, of course. Why would I ever (over)load the tops of my muffins with peanut butter and chocolate on purpose? No, not me… But, as long as we’re this far gone into peanut butter oblivion with these peanut butter banana flax muffins, I think we’d all be doing ourselves a disservice not to bite into that delicious creamy, rich, sweet goodness. Stop, though. May I recommend having a glass of milk close at hand? There is a limit to the amount of peanut butter a mouth can handle. Eventually, you will find a balance that allows you to enjoy the PB and chocolate without gasping for air between …

Vegetarian Swedish Meatballs

Vegetarian Swedish Meatballs are FOR REAL! Meatballs made with wild rice and mushrooms, served with savory brown gravy. Easy and yummy! Vegetarian Swedish Meatballs are here and they are so savory, luscious, meatless, and scary-delicious. Swedish meatballs, as described by Wiki, are just meatballs with a brown gravy. This is not news to me. We live in Minnesota. I grew up eating Swedish meatballs. Bjork love-love-loves them (yes, his name is Bjork) and he hardcore campaigns for a gravy-loaded meatball splurge every time we’re at IKEA. So to that Wiki description, I say: yes. I also say: define meatballs, exactly. Because I think I might have just made meatballs … with wild rice and mushrooms… without meat. I rolled them and …

Deep Dish Cookie Bowls for Two

Doesn’t get better than this. Buttery, crisped cookie ridges with a melty chocolate and slightly underdone center, served in bowls with a scoop of ice cream. YUM. Truly, honestly, from the bottom of my chocolate chip cookie heart… it does not get better than this. Buttery, crisped cookie ridges with a melty chocolate and slightly underdone center is going to give you the best of both cookie worlds, all in the couch-friendly format of individual deep dish cookie bowls. The path to a lot of the recipes on Pinch of Yum starts with me trying to solve a problem for myself. And my problem was: end of night, end of week, tired and lazy but… I wanted cookies. I’m saying …
