We have finally had a couple of snow days here in Ohio which means it’s time to snuggle in for comfort food and movie nights. Tater tots are a family favorite around here so given the opportunity to create these Loaded Totchos to share with you I jumped at the chance.

Five Minute Nutella Cake for Two

Five Minute Nutella Cake for Two by Foodtastic Mom #nutella

I’m talking about this Five Minute Nutella Cake for Two today because Valentine’s Day is this weekend but this cake shouldn’t be limited by Cupid. It’s the perfect ending for any date night, no matter the time of year. It is so fool-proof that even if your guy is less than skilled in the kitchen he should still be able to make it. I found the original recipe HERE and it is a keeper! And guys, if you can make a cake, you might be considered a keeper too.

Have you heard of NeuEnergy? I hadn’t until very recently when I was contacted by them to try the product myself. I’ll be posting a review of my experience with this new product soon that promises to deliver simple healthy energy. But for now I thought I’d maybe get a laugh at my expense to help promote the NeuEnergy Selfie Contest.

Cheddar Oatmeal with Maple Roasted Apples and Bacon by Foodtastic Mom #BringYourBestBowl

This cheddar oatmeal with maple roasted apples and bacon is a revelation in flavor. Extra sharp cheddar cheese melted into Quaker® Old-Fashioned Oats provides a perfectly savory and hearty bowl of oatmeal. Combined with the maple sweetness of the roasted, fresh apples and crunchy bits of bacon it’s a sweet ‘n salty flavor lovers dream. This is truly my best bowl of oatmeal.


Farro Roasted Vegetable Salad

A little prep work makes this Farro Roasted Vegetable Salad a lighting fast lunch option. Cooked farro is tossed with curried roasted cauliflower and sweet potatoes, fresh apple, lightly salted cashews and fig balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Fresh and delicious, it’s both a vegan and clean eating option!

If you are like me and never jumped on the quinoa bandwagon allow me to introduce you to my new friend farro. I am officially obsessed. The look of quinoa with it’s tiny spirals always weirded me out… the texture and taste of it always felt “off” to me. Not so with farro. It’s hearty, with a pleasant chew and a softly spiced and nutty taste reminiscent of toasted cashews and cinnamon. Seriously, it’s delicious. And guess what? Nutritionally farro trumps quinoa. Not in a Donald Trump way… but in a tasty, nutritional way.
