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: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.
