weekend review: a little love on top

Figure 1. Saturday night's dinner: maple-mustard chicken thighs, 'baked' (microwaved) sweet potato, and roasted vegetables (zucchini, squash, eggplant, red onion, and broccoli).

On top: a brilliant maple-mustard marinade that will change your life.

Figure 2. Sunday morning's breakfast: buttermilk blueberry pancakes with Madison's peanut butter spread.

On top: sweet, tangy, peanut butter goodness that makes the perfect pancake topping. 

 Figure 3. In preparation: shrimp fettuccine Alfredo.

 Figure 4. Sunday night's dinner: shrimp fettuccine Alfredo, sauteed broccoli with garlic and red pepper flakes.

On top: this Alfredo sauce has less fat and all the flavor of the the real thing.


  1. Hey Sara! I just found your blog from Carrots and Cake...I'm not a Georgia girl but I'm reppin' the Southeast too as a Floridian! I love that you work in science all day - I'm a writer but I deal with mostly medical writing, so I feel ya on the brain drain that comes from 8+ hours of intense sciencey/health research! I can't wait to read more of your blog (and try out that maple mustard marinade - YUM!)

  2. Wow, I'm a vegetarian but that chicken looks so yummy it's making me rethink it all! And the pancake, delishhhhh!

    Looks like a tasty week-end for sure :)
