Sweet Potato Fudge Brownies

April 9, 2012

It might sound like an odd combination, but Sweet Potato brownies are becoming extremely popular among healthy eating blogs. The trend is especially mouth-watering for those who follow the Paleo diet: a food plan that focuses on bringing our food choices back to those that our caveman counterparts would have had.  The idea is that a diet of wild plants and animals is what our bodies are best suited for. I'm not sure cavemen would have been capable of Sweet Potato brownies, but they fit the diet critera.  So go hunt and gather at your local grocery store and let us know if you're plesantly suprised by the combination!

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
