Brett Favre Cheeks

Apple Nachos
A couple weeks ago I announced my retirement from Sweet Cheeks stating I needed to focus full force on the acupuncture business.  In case you were wondering, I’ve since erased that posting because I didn’t want new future readers to think I had quit!   Today I would like to officially announce that I am un-retiring!!!  I feel like Brett Favre =)  
You see Cheekers, here is what happened in the last two weeks for me.  I found myself aimlessly wandering around grocery stores with no food shopping list, unsure of what to buy and how to cook it.  I would buy purposeless bags of broccoli and meaningless chicken breasts.  I was eating bland salmon and steamed vegetables over and over and over again.  Then I got bored with that and started eating out.  This led to eating dishes I wouldn’t normally eat, aka grains.  Then I started craving sugar more and found myself eating those silly Christmas candies that are out in all the stores now – caramel christmas trees, truffle santa heads and chocolate covered marshmallow snow men.  It was the slippery slope of Sweet Cheek retirement.
But really all that time I missed researching new recipes to cook for you.  I missed my shopping lists.  I missed going to the grocery store and making little cross marks through that shopping list.  I missed having new different delicious meals to eat.  I missed accidentally melting Righty’s spatula onto the burner. And most importantly, I missed you.
So Cheekers, I’m back.  I’m going to be the best darn acupuncturist AND the best Left Sweet Cheek there ever was!!!  And THIS IS HAPPENING!
Apple Nachos
This is an awesome recipe for the little kiddies.  It’s super quick to make and super versatile.  You can swap out the toppings for their favorite fruit/nut combo, and you can even melt a little bit of nut butter and pour it over the top of the nachos.  
1 red apple
1 green apple
1/4 cup chopped or sliced nuts
1/4 cup raisins
Core the apples, then cut width wise into 1/2″ thick slices.  Place apples on plate.  Sprinkle with nuts and raisins.


  1. Glad you are back – the Cheeks need, crave, balance. Cheers.
