I am a sucker for a good slow cooker dinner, and then throw in some BBQ sauce and you definitely have a winner. I took inspiration from this recipe, and then modified it to what I had on hand.
NYC finally received its first snowfall of the season, which meant it was finally time for me to indulge in a soup recipe. It’s not often that I come across a soup recipe that I don’t want to make, so yesterday’s decision was a tough one. I didn’t want anything to complicated, but I also wanted something that was really going to pack a punch and remain a go-to. I ended up deciding on loaded baked potato soup, and it did not disappoint.
So I don’t know about all of you, but for the past few months my newsfeed has increasingly become more full of delicious looking food videos, mostly from Tasty. Whether it be dips or desserts, I can’t go on Facebook without my mouth watering. Today I finally decided to give one of those recipes a go. And it came out delectable!
Besides just revamping the blog, I have also decided to expand the reach of the blog with … Instagram! My personal feed is full of other people’s tasty looking food, so my thought is other people may want to sneak a peak at my tasty food.
The blog will be reserved for mainly healthy food and things I make from scratch, but the Instagram will be everything and anything I eat (at least the food I manage to get a good picture of). Now I am by no means a professional photographer, and there are definitely prettier pictures out there, but that means there is room for improvement. You can follow it at @healthyasanewb or follow this link.
In between applying for jobs and unpacking my new apartment I have spent a considerable amount of time researching new recipes that I want to tryout and feature on the blog. I am always amazed that somehow one click on Pinterest ends up leading to hours of drooling over mouth watering pictures of food that I can only dream of making — I have to eat healthy at least some of the time, right?
Fortunately or unfortunately, NYC has been hit with a cold spell, which has put me in the perfect mood for a steaming bowl of soup. I am a sucker for a one pot meal or a slow cooker meal, and soup fits perfectly in that category.
After a very long hiatus and an unexplained absence, Healthy as a Newb is back! As a college student, I found that managing a blog was not as easy as it seemed, and thus a summer and a semester break ensued.
However, now I am newly graduated — with a journalism degree from Ithaca College — on the job search, and settling in to my new apartment in Brooklyn, N.Y.,ready to take another shot at this blog. Since starting my healthy journey almost a year ago, I can happily say that I have continued on that road. While, my eating habits are definitely not perfect (sometimes ice cream is all too necessary), I am still on a good path.
For the first time I have a full, while small, kitchen to experiment in — trying out new recipes and sharing my own. Not all the kinks are worked out to my new blogging plan, but I definitely plan on creating more of my own original recipes and talking about the food I love.
