Mashed Potato & Bacon Pizza

Mashed Potato & Bacon Pizza

In continuation with “Thanksgiving Leftover Week” on LLB, I’m sharing a new pizza recipe that might seem a little strange at first, but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!

One of my favorite pizzerias downtown San Diego, Basic, introduced me to putting mashed potatoes on pizza almost 10 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since!

Pizza: good, mashed potatoes: good, bacon: good, cheese: good, the combination: GREAT!

It’s the last day of “Thanksgiving Week” on LLB and I’ve saved the big kahuna for last!

That’s right, the turkey, the epicenter of the Thanksgiving table!

Since we have a small family, we started preparing a turkey breast a few years back instead of a whole turkey. It’s the perfect size for 4-6 people and if you want to try a couple of different turkey recipes, this is a great way to do it!

It’s day three of “Thanksgiving Week” on LLB and to say I’m a big fan of sweet potatoes would be a total understatement. Although this wasn’t always the case.

Growing up in “meat and potatoes land”, AKA Oklahoma, I pretty much stuck with the good ‘ol russet potato, baked, fried, mashed, anyway it was cooked I liked it, but sweet potatoes were something I just wasn’t into… this was until I got older, and much, much wiser and realized how amazing they are!

Now, one of my favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes are sweet potato skins. I’ve filled them with Turkey Chili for game day and last Thanksgiving I filled them with Sage Pesto and Bacon, YUM!

Sriracha Lime Chicken

Sriracha Lime Chicken Recipe

Since transitioning to “Fit Whit” over the last two months (AKA so much eating as a food blogger = need to hit the gym!) I’ve been looking for ways to incorporate healthy-er meals at home in between food blog recipes & eating out.

One of my favorite go-to, easy dinner meals is a burrito. Fill it with whatever goodies I have in the fridge, wrap it up in a giant tortilla and dig in!

While “Fit Whit” will not be giving up burritos anytime soon, I figured a great, easy, go-to alternative would be burrito bowls.

Whip up some delicious chicken on Monday, put it in the fridge, then use it in burrito bowls all week long. Enter: Sriracha Lime Chicken.
