1. Caramelized Onions + Cheese. I don’t think it gets any better than this! Zucchini and Caramelized Onion Galette with Gruyere.

2. I love banana bread (and, these would make a great gift) but, banana fritters would also be a great alternative if you want to switch things up a bit.

3. I’ve been obsession over figs this past few weeks. How amazing does this sound/look? Fig Ice Cream With Honey Roasted Almonds

4. I’m a sucker for a good sweet + savory combo. Bacon, Pear & Blue Cheese Macaroni with Caramelized Onions.

5. What I’ve learned from every diet. Love the humor in this post but,  I also think there’s something we call all take away from this.

6. Carrot Cake Ice Cream. Carrot Cake + Ice Cream. Together. Yes!

7. I am not a runner. I wish I was but I’m not…However, I LOVE to walk! 10 EasyWays To Get The Most Out Of Walking

8. This just sounds so refreshing to me. Clementine Ice Cream.

Because fall is on my mind…

9. Apple Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread. Apple + Cinnamon = Yum!

10. Baked Gingerbread Mini Donuts. I want this…now!

This is what you missed on Devoted Foodie this week: Roasted Garlic & Avocado Mashed Potato Balls and WIAW…Savory Oatmeal. I also updated the pictured on How To: Caramelize Onions, the Mint-Ginger Infused Limeade and, the Mojito posts.

Happy Labor Day!


Roasted Garlic & Avocado Mashed Potato Balls

Now that I’m back in school and SUPER busy, I am constantly trying to come up with easy meals to prepare. A current favorite of mine are these “Roasted Garlic & Avocado Mashed Potato Balls“. They require only 3 ingredients and involve very little prep 🙂 These mashed potato balls are creamless but you probably wouldn’t have guess it– thank you, avocados! Its creamy consistency makes it a great replacement for butter and milk in most recipes…did I mention this is a healthy, vegan, lactose-intolerant friendly alternative  Annnd it’s DELICIOUS?! Mix in some roasted garlic and it’s total perfection!
