Shrimp Mac 'n Cheese à la Japonais, Foodie Friends Friday Nothing But Noodles #Pasta Party

Maybe noodles were created specially for mothers. It’s the one food most children around the world will agree to eat.

Sweet Potato Cake Pops, #SundaySupper

Super Bowl Sunday is here!

While Michael Oher, Baltimore Ravens' football star (and subject of the film) Blindside prepares for the big game with extra push-ups, his sister  who is the co-owner of the Whimsy Cookie Company may be putting in overtime baking  cookies for a Super Bowl party.

Along with other #SundaySupper food bloggers, I brought out my cheer-evoking Super Bowl recipes. In honor of the big-hearted Michael Oher and his adopted Tuohy family from Memphis, Tennessee, this Ninja Baker made Gluten-Free, Vegan Sweet Potato Cake Pops. Sweet potatoes are an important component of Southern cuisine and wildly popular in Japan. 

I do believe you'll score big points with the Ninja Baker's Gluten-Free Vegan Sweet Potato Cake Pops.
