Creamy Hummus with Curry and Cilantro

Creamy Hummus with Curry and Cilantro - Main

Would you guys totally hate me if I said this was my favorite hummus ever?!  Especially since I said this hummus and this hummus and this hummus were my favorites too?  Let’s just say that the hummus I have in front of me is my favorite hummus, okay?  Love the hummus you’re with, right?!  I can also that hummus is my favorite dip ever!  You can dip crackers into it, eat it with vegetables, put it on flatbread, add it to wraps, spread it on toast, or just eat it with a spoon which is one of my favorite ways to enjoy it :)Continue Reading

Quinoa and Chickpea Stuffed Tomatoes

Quinoa and Chickpea Stuffed Tomatoes-0552

Can you believe that it is already July?!  Craziness!  But truthfully, I’m already counting down the days until fall.  It is so hot here and for some awesome reason the air conditioner works perfectly in every single room of the house except for the bedroom.  I also have a weird thing where I can’t sleep very well unless I have a heavy blanket on me, so I’ve been sweating profusely under my big down blanket every night for the past few weeks.

Summer Taco Salad Bowls

Summer Taco Salad Bowls-0013

Apparently I really want you guys to try this delicious green dressing!  I originally made it to use as a dip for these grilled potatoes but it was so good I can’t stop putting it on all the things.  It is packed with fresh herbs and you can’t get much brighter than this beautiful green color, and we all know that green food tastes better :)

Vegetarian Sloppy Joes with Lentils and Chickpeas {vegan}

Vegetarian Sloppy Joes with Lentils and Chickpeas-Main

I received products from Udi’s Gluten Free for this post but, as always, all opinions are my own!  Thank you so much for supporting the brands that support me!

It is officially the first day of summer!  But, if you live anywhere near where I live, you know that it has been feeling like summer for a few weeks now.  Today’s high is 110 and I’m not sure I can take much more!  I’ve thought about jumping the fence and sneaking into the neighbors pool a few times, but I’m guessing that would frowned upon.  The summer solstice also marks the 8th anniversary for my husband and I :)  I’m not sure if you are supposed to still celebrate your dating anniversary once you are married, but I say the more celebrations the better!

Grilled Baby Potatoes with Lemon Herb Dressing

Grilled Baby Potatoes with Lemon Herb Dressing - Main

When it comes to 4th of July food, I’m more of a make yummy side dish recipes than a make red, white and blue recipes.  Now, don’t get me wrong, the 4th of July party wouldn’t be the same without that red, white and blue cake, but I’m not quite as good at making the sweet stuff.  I will, however, happily eat the entire thing though!

13 Vegetarian Avocado Recipes for the Summer!

 13 Vegetarian Avocado Reciepes for the Summer

I would be lying if I said I didn’t eat avocados all year round, but for some reason I really go crazy for them in the summertime!  Avocados are by far one of my favorite foods and this roundup proves that they pretty much go well in everything, including desserts.  So, really you have no excuse not to eat them this summer!

Up until a few days ago we have had really amazing summer weather, especially for Arizona.  The highs have been in the low 90s and we have even gotten some rain.  It has been pretty perfect and I’ve been so happy.  But then a few days ago it reached 100 degrees and we are looking at highs around 110 this week, yuck!  It has been way too hot and I have been way too lazy to go outside and take photos of recipes this week, so instead I’ve rounded up some of my favorite vegetarian avocado recipes from a few of my favorite bloggers and I hope you love them as much as I do! 

 I hope you are all staying cool and having a great summer so far :)

Crispy Oven Baked French Fries

Crispy Oven Baked French Fries - MainI’ve been making this French fry recipe for years and although they are amazing and delicious I never planned to share them with you.  Not because I’m selfish and wanted to keep them all to myself, but because I always thought they might not be exciting enough to share with you.  But I figured it was probably time I let my perfect oven baked fries out of the bag!Continue Reading

Cashew Alfredo Pasta with Broccoli

Cashew Alfredo Pasta with Broccoli1-8835

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, cashews are the most magical things ever!  You can use them to make savory salad dressings, sweet desserts and amazingly creamy alfredo sauce.  I’m convinced that there isn’t anything you can’t make with cashews! 

A great cashew tip I’ve just started doing is boiling them for about 30 minutes before I use them instead of soaking them overnight.  It works really well to soften them up and I can now make cashew alfredo on a whim instead of having to plan for it the night before.Continue Reading

Loaded Greek Hummus Dip

Loaded Greek Hummus Dip-8986This post is sponsored by Udi’s Gluten Free.  All opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands to support me!

Crunchy salty things are pretty much my life.  If given the choice between a two foot tall chocolate cake or a big bag of chips, I will always choose the chips!  Or maybe I’ll choose the chips and then dip them into the chocolate frosting, is that strange?!  Either way, the chips are most definitely going into my mouth and I probably won’t share any with you.  Sorry!
