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

It’s the last day of “Thanksgiving Week” on the blog 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! Read the full post here!

It’s day three of “Thanksgiving Week” on the blog 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!

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.

Ok, after this recipe I promise to take a “pumpkin hiatus” …. at least for a week!

Some would call me a basic …. well you get it … for my intense love of pumpkin, but I don’t care, pumpkin everything, all day, every day!

When it comes to fall, I want to incorporate pumpkin into basically as many dishes as possible. Well that and buffalo sauce, but not together, I’m not that crazy!

Since I’m not a big sweets person I like to incorporate pumpkin into savory recipes like Pumpkin Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie, Pumpkin Pulled Pork, Pumpkin Chili & Pumpkin Enchiladas!
