I made a few minor changes to The Foodie Files, though most weeks you'll still find a test kitchened recipe here. From time to time I'll also feature some of the snacks and treats I'm currently fixated on (like the post below)...and I may even throw in the occasional restaurant review. Though the general focus on delicious food will stay the same, I'm excited to have a few more options to share.
1. Trader Joe's Beurre Meuniere Popcorn- Check out this flavor combination: browned butter, lemon, parsley, and thyme. On popcorn! Maybe I ate the whole bag in one sitting. It's possible that happened.
2. Starbucks' Double Short Mocha- If you've never heard of the "short" size at Starbucks, might I suggest you try it at your earliest convenience. It's smaller than a tall, though you won't find it advertised on any menu. The extra shot of espresso makes the chocolate to coffee ratio both perfectly sweet and strong.
3. Pomegranate- My very favorite fruit...delicious, nutritious and finally in season!
4. Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bread Pudding- Not so much a snack as it was a tasty dessert. I ate a good amount of this with some butter pecan ice cream the other night and it was incredible!
