The Athlete’s Plate – April 21, 2011


I am taking the week off from creating the Athlete’s Plate this week and asked Chuck Feerick of Feerless Food to be a Guest Chef.  He graciously agreed to take on this task and I cannot thank him enough.  I ‘met’ Chuck through Twitter and also through our affiliation with HoneyMilk (yes, he does include HoneyMilk in one of his recipes.)

Enjoy our Guest Chef and please show him some blogger love by commenting here and visiting his site.  I will be back next week and have a great nominee from BDD that I can’t wait to start scouring their site and getting inspired.

Thank you Chuck for standing in for me.
