Looks like you got some awesome loot at the grocery store! Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Thank God for savory food. I’ve been making desserts all day and if I take another ounce of sugar in I’m going to need to be put in a straitjacket.

What types of cheeses do you go for? Love, love, love cheese!

Oh but Jenna – don’t you know that savory dishes must be followed by sweets!So the baking is a necessity :)

i can’t wait. CAN.NOT.WAIT :)

Emily January 6, 2011 at 1:59 pm

Eeeee! While I gaze lovingly at most of you sweets, it’s savory that will get me actually cooking. I’ve never had much of a sweet tooth, but something salty and cheesy… that’s worth losing your composure over.

love the look of where your going with all that cheese :D

Love the TJ’s cheese raid.

No, I love that you’re making cookies, first.

But I reallllllly! love the title of this post. Amen to being a big girl :)

I am such a fan of that phrase! I used to hear it all the time from my mom when I was growing up (is that weird?), and in college I also became a fan of “push your skirt down” when telling myself/someone else to just deal with it:)

Yay! I’m excited! Can’t wait to make my own huge trip to TJ’s once Winter Break (sadly) comes to an end.

Maria January 6, 2011 at 2:58 pm

This is the first week I haven’t posted sweets. It won’t last for long-my sweet tooth is too strong:)

Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman January 6, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Oh, Jenna. How I’d love to be your neighbor. You can’t possibly eat all this by yourself…

I so wish we had a TJ’s in Oklahoma! Silly liquor laws!

But at least we have a Whole Foods :)

Jenna,
Your cheese picture cracks me up. That’s what my cart looks like every time I’m at Trader Joes! My name is Lisa, and I have a cheese addiction…

Jessica @ The Process of Healing January 6, 2011 at 3:11 pm

Yeah this was supposed to be a savory week for me too… until yesterday, when I caved and ate half of a huge package of gummi worms. That’s what deprivation does to you.

Lisa Fine - lisasfoods January 6, 2011 at 3:22 pm

Love it! Can’t wait to see what you have in store. I’m finding myself in a full mix of savory and sweet this week. One minute I’m making a big vegan soup or Indian meal, the next I’m popping homemade chocolate pastries in the oven.

Hi there,

I don’t usually post but I had a quick question. When you go grocery shopping do you already have recipes in mind or do you just pick up soome things and see what come up with?

Reply

Mary @ Bites and Bliss January 6, 2011 at 3:33 pm

I should probably make more savory recipes, too. But baking’s just so much more fun!

i’ve gotta tell you, i love your normal sweet recipes, but i cannot wait for the savory ones. i don’t make desserts often – it’s a willpower thing. but i have a feeling your savory recipes will be good ones. i can’t wait!

Andrea @ The Skinny Chronicles January 6, 2011 at 7:07 pm

Can’t wait. Bring it on. Will there be cocktails accompanying the recipes? The blackberry margaritas were a big hit on New Years.

Do you still do reader meet ups?

I’m moving up from Orange County to Humboldt this weekend and will be passing through Healdsburg on Monday. Thinking about stopping at Cafe Gratitude for lunch before finishing my journey north. Would love your company (I believe you’ve mentioned being around there?), if you’re not took sketched out by this randomness!

Let me know if you want to plan anything. :) My email is heatherezell@gmail.com. It’d be an honor to share a table with you! I’ve been a regular reader since 2008.

jenna January 7, 2011 at 6:39 am

hi! I definitely still do meet-ups; I just haven’t had the opportunity to do one in awhile. I don’t think I can go all the way to healdsburg on Monday though (it’s about 30 minutes away), but if you’re in Santa Rosa, I’d love to meet you!

Reply

Heather January 7, 2011 at 9:29 am

Actually, Santa Rosa is equally on the way! I think I’ll Santa Rosa late morning/early afternoon, depending on when I wake up.

I also can do Thursday eveningish if Monday doesn’t work, as I’m going to be staying somewhere in the area that night (I have a flight out of Oakland the next afternoon). Maybe I’ll stay in Santa Rosa?

Let me know :)

Hey Jenna, do you drink green monsters (with or without amazing grass) anymore??

Reply

jenna January 7, 2011 at 6:37 am

No…but I might in the summer! Right now it’s just too cold for smoothies for breakfast! I usually eat a cinnamon raisin bagel instead.

Reply

JessicaEn January 7, 2011 at 7:20 am

No No, raisins!?!!??! ha Ha ;)

Christie @ Abundant Self Care January 7, 2011 at 3:40 am

Yum, I can’t see what you come up with! Looks like you have quite the haul of cheese so I am sure that whatever it is is going to be delish!
