We are excited to bring you this month's post from Katie Blauser, the creator of Eat Pretty Darling.

Color of the Week - Brown
Brown might not be the first color that comes to mind when you think of pretty food, but there are so many great brown options out there. Some are just brown on the outside, like sweet potatoes! We were all around the store for this week’s color. From produce, to eggs, to nuts, and spices. So many of our family’s favorite foods are brown! This week we got sweet potatoes, brown eggs, Bosc pears, pecans, and cinnamon. Sweet potatoes are so versatile because they are delicious both sweet and savory. That’s what makes them the perfect toast substitute! I can’t decide which way I like them best so I like to make one a little salty and one a sweet treat. It’s a great way to get in some extra veggies in those bellies. Picking out the toppings is half the fun so make sure to let the kids help!
