My New Favorite Fudge Maker

by HEAB on October 4, 2010

Last night after my almond butter sloppy joe dinner, I drove to Fido, one of my my favorite local coffee shops to meet up with Sami, aka A Teenage Gourmet and her friend Samantha.


The girls were in town to visit Vanderbilt University, and I’m so glad we all got the chance to meet. Sami and Samantha, I’m really hoping you both love Vanderbilt as I want you guys to move to Nashville! First off, Sami is an amazing cook & baker, and Samantha, well, she loves chocolate – therefore, how could I not love these two girls?!? :)

Sami was kind enough to bring me some butternut squash fudge, and I enjoyed 2 pieces of it along with a decaf topped with steamed half and half and cinnamon. Thanks again Sami. So good! I also tried a bite of Samantha’s cake (amazing) and Sami’s chocolate mint paleta (again, amazing…I love Fido).


Good conversation, good coffee, and lots of chocolate. Really, what more does a girl need? I had such a good time, and I really do hope to see you both again!

In honor of our meet-up last night, I decided to make a Sami inspired breakfast but then ended up warming myself 2 big slices of banana bread instead as I needed something quick before yoga. Jill, seriously…the banana bread…I think I could live on it…oh wait, I have been. 😉 Anyway, I did end up eating a Sami inspired lunch…


Sunny-Side Grits

Nothing like a big bowl of grits topped with an egg, goat cheese, fresh basil, wing sauce, and pepper to make me happy…or perhaps it was the 2 pieces of pieces of butternut fudge I ate afterwards that brought a big smile to my face.

Before I go, I wanted to send a very big thank-you to Meghann from Meals And Miles. Look at what she sent the HEABlet…

Cutest onesies Ever!
Meghann, thanks so much. I’m totally bringing the HEABlet home from the hospital in the pink one, and you know she’ll be sporting her Meals And Miles onesie as soon as she grows into it. We you! :)
