at the bottom of my posts you will see a variation of icons.
since i can be a bit long-winded in my tale telling, i felt like separating some tips into an easy to read section would be beneficial! whether you prefer to skim past the post + go straight to the recipe or simply want to know how to repurpose the recipe for leftovers, it should be a breeze to navigate!
here is a little lowdown what they mean + why each one was invited to the party!
when you see this guy it means i made a tomato swap out! this is for all you tomato lovers out there. since we have to agree to disagree, i will at least give you a heads up to swap back in the
creepy red fruit.
plus sign = addition! under this icon is where i will post ideas for an accompanying side or additional toppings to add that would rock your world.
idea center! i might share a table setting idea or give you the go-ahead to use your creative side to dream up a different spin.
fun facts found here! i can be a bit of a curious cat when told to do something – i love to know ‘why!’ – and i don’t know about you, but google is my JAM for answering these questions for me. fun facts about an ingredient or link to a process used in a recipe will be under this little guy. i named him melvin.
cooking for one? find tips + tricks for making the most out of a recipe that serves more, can be found here!
this icon will give an idea for a swap-a-roonie on the ingredient list!
leftovers don’t have to taste like they came from the inside of a styrofoam box! tips on how to learn to love your leftovers will be under these boxes!
down with the cals! find tips on how to lower the caloric impact of the posted recipe. i’ll be real with ya, sometimes a posted recipe might only work for the indulgent diner, but when i can suggest a calorie-cutting flavor-saving swap, it’ll be here!
last + CERTAINLY not least, is the cocktail suggestion icon. i’ll do the legwork, test the research + pass along a great pairing for some recipes! we can’t have you serving a cabernet with catfish! imagine the outrage!
