Blogging from A-Z • Y

Today is brought to you by the letter "Y"!

(Disclaimer: Although this is typically a blog about my beadwork, I do let other parts of my life seep into this blog.  Food and beverage is a huge part of my life as I am the marketing director of a fantastic restaurant group!)

Y is for yams and yogurt!  

We're in the final stretch and these letters are more and more difficult as we hone in on the end of the alphabet.

The only two foods I could think of that start with Y are yams and yogurt.  Neither of which are very popular ingredients on our menus! However, purple yams were on our menu as a puree in this tuna dish!

And periodically our chefs use a yogurt as a garnish for soups or in a sauce for salads!

Come back tomorrow to see what we have in store for the final letter for the A-Z challenge, "Z"!


  1. I don't know what that last dish is but it looks yummy!

  2. yams and sweet potatoes are a favorite at our house ... slow cooked in the oven makes them so sweet!

  3. I feel I must stick up for yams and yogurt - they're awesome! :)

  4. Your photos are lovely and are making me hungry! I have been eating a lot of sweet potatoes/yams lately. Just pop them in the microwave for 4-5 minutes, put some Stevia, pecans and cinnamon on them and they are yummy. I've enjoyed your blog! Let's keep the momentum going in May!

  5. two of my favorite foods ~ so I think ya done good with this post! a little dollop of greek yogurt heightens the flavor of most dishes I make.


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
