Pick-Me-Up Green Smoothie

During this time of the year I think we all could use a bit of a pick-me-up, right? I’m usually pretty tired when I get home from work, but the fact that it starts to get dark at around 4:30 is definitely not helping to […]

Socca with Grilled Roots and Golden Hummus

As November sets in I have found myself in need of a good pick me up. It seems as though we completely skipped nice fall weather and went straight into the crappyness of November. I mean, I can’t really complain too much about the weather because we […]

There are some things that just put me in a really fantastic mood. Making a perfect batch of hummus is one of those things. You may think that that makes me very lame, but my argument is that you have to enjoy the little things in life and celebrate small victories, you feel? (more…)

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

I am a big time snacker. When I get home after a long day my snack is basically a meal. I’m not kidding.
