Lemon Basil Hummus

2014-03-31_LemonBasilHummus-600px

Hummus is one of those foods that I often overlook. At least, I used to. Lately, I find myself cooking a big batch of garbanzo beans every other week so that I have plenty of them on hand to make fresh, homemade hummus. Since I ditched sweets, it’s one of my new go-to snacks. I…

Friday Favorites – Surprise Baby Shower

I’ve been taking a bit of a break from my Friday Favorites lately… My regular Friday Favorites will return later this fall (post-baby!). But, lately I just haven’t had the time and energy to get through my RSS reader each week. I suppose being close to 9 months pregnant is a good excuse, but I…

Friday Favorites – Episode 133

Friday is here again, and it’s time for another fresh batch of Friday Favorites! Some weeks I have a theme in mind when I am looking for favorite blog posts for the week… Other weeks, a theme kind of presents itself as I’m reading. Then there are the weeks where individual recipes just jump out…

Friday Favorites – Episode 132

All week, I’ve been talking about recipes that would be great for Mother’s Day.  After all, there should be at least one day a year that moms don’t have to worry about making dinner (or lunch or breakfast!).  So, with that in mind, here are a few more recipes that I think your mother will…

Friday Favorites – Bluebonnets & Brownies Edition (Episode 127)

This week, my Friday Favorites guest host is Amber from Bluebonnets & Brownies! Amber is a great friend of mine, and (of course!) a wonderful blogger. She grew up in the great state of Texas, so she is my authority on all things Tex-Mex.  On top of that, she is also a fabulous baker, and she comes…

Friday Favorites – Sugarcrafter Edition (Episode 125)

Today is the 125th edition of my Friday Favorites… That’s a lot of Fridays, and a lot of favorites! While I do enjoy picking my favorite blog posts each week, I thought maybe it would be fun to mix things up for a little while.  So, instead of just sharing my favorite blog posts, I…

Lemon Blueberry Oat Muffins

I didn’t think that this blog post was going to happen today. I spent most of the day yesterday dealing with the immense amount of rain that has fallen… The creek behind our house flash flooded and then we started getting water in our basement because the ground is so saturated. Needless to say, writing…

Lemon Herb Hummus

I find myself tending towards simple food in the summer. I’m sure you can relate.  I want something that’s simple to make and made with fresh, healthy ingredients. That’s the place where this lemon herb hummus came from.  The last few weeks have been pretty busy around here (I won’t bore you with the details),…

Amaretto Cherries

At the risk of receiving hate mail and nasty comments, let me be honest with you for a moment. I really don’t enjoy summer. I am not a hot weather girl, and I prefer to stay cool in the shade. I am much happier in the cooler (even cold!) months of the year when I…

Friday Favorites – Episode 99

FridayFavorites_new.jpg

With summer in full swing (and lots of hot and sticky days around here), my focus has been shifting a bit from rich, decadent desserts (which you see a lot of around here!) to light and refreshing dishes that don’t require a lot of effort and heat. It seems that my fellow bloggers are feeling…
