Twitter #Weekendeats highlights: Buffalo chicken pizza?

It’s the new year, and people are busily struggling to keep their new year’s resolutions to eat better. We’re in full support of a healthful diet, but why not have one last, little hurrah? During Monday morning’s #Weekendeats chat on Twitter, some participants embraced a more healthful new year, while others couldn’t help indulging... just a little. Here are some of the highlights:

Carol Sacks, from the blog In Medias Recipe, balanced her butterscotch glazed cinnamon rolls with a kale, cabbage and carrot salad, while Jo from the blog My Last Bite shared a ridiculous photo of the pig tail from the Spice Table, with the words “crispy, fatty, porky” in the caption. It was music to our ears.

Susan Orlins shared a recipe for pancetta, white bean and Swiss chard pot pies. There are vegetables in there, right? And Jocelyn from the blog Saucy Jocey’s Kitchen shared a recipe for Buffalo chicken pizza. One look at the recipe and I honestly questioned how I ever survived without trying this before.

And #Weekendeats newcomer Katherine, from the blog Tar Heel Taste Bud, shared a picture of her ham and Swiss sliders for a game day snack.


Wow, that felt good.
