Let’s talk about dynamic duos for a moment, shall we?…
Peanut butter & jelly. That’s an obvious choice.
Black & white. Classic. Timeless. Always a good decision.
Meredith & Derek. Because really, what would Grey’s Anatomy be without them?
Brandy & Monica. Yeah, don’t even try to tell me I was the only one who lip synced to “The Boy is Mine” with their best friends in the 90’s.
And yes, my personal favorite: Bread & Soup.
Sure, that last combination may sound boring after you started getting catchy 90’s songs stuck in your head, but to me, it never gets old. There are so many different types of breads to be made and soups to be stirred, that a combination of the two is always something I want to enjoy.
Enter the bread bowl. Basically my favorite thing to eat. Forget the china and ceramic bowls. This bread bowl is sturdy, absorbs all that flavor you worked so hard to create and leaves no dishes behind to wash!
These bread bowls were actually fun to make and such a hit when served! If you’ve made any type of yeast bread before (and even if you haven’t- now is the time!) then you can definitely manage this. The loaves are simply shaped and cut differently to hold the soup. It makes eating a typical bowl of soup so much more fun and even encourages eating with your fingers!
This recipe comes from How Sweet It Is. The only change I made was using whole wheat pastry flour rather that whole wheat flour (this gives the bread a slightly lighter texture).
You wanna know another dynamic duo? Snacking & Giving Back.
KIND bars has partnered with Arianna Huffington, Bobbi Brown and Grace Potter on a new campaign entitled “Snack and Give Back” encouraging others to snack smart and give back this holiday season. Two goals I definitely support!
Arianna, Bobbi and Grace have all personally designed a cube filled with KIND bars and benefitting a different charity. Different KIND bar flavors found in these cubes include: Madagascar Vanilla Almond, Cashew & Ginger Spice, Pomegranate Blueberry Pistachio, Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew, Almonds & Apricot in Yogurt, and Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan.
Pictured below is the Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan. This was absolutely delicious. There was a generous layer of dark chocolate on the bottom, topped with nuts, cinnamon and more chocolate. This, along with the Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt have quickly become some of my favorite bars to snack on!
Using random.org: the winner of the NuNaturals Giveaway is Renata, the winner of the Cascal giveaway is Managed Macros, and the winner of the Edwards Pie is Boise Runner!
