Granola. It’s not exactly the sexiest food, is it? More often than not, it’s code for hippy-dippy and hyper-eco-friendly. Granola is also a source of great confusion. It’s frequently pitched as a hearty, healthy breakfast option, but an alarming number of the store bought options are loaded with sugar, fat, and calories… and are sometimes […]
It’s Super Bowl Weekend!! Doesn’t matter if you’re a die-hard fan or a casual watcher, Super Bowl Sunday is pretty much a National holiday. Everyone likes a dead-of-winter excuse for chicken wings and beer and sitting on the couch. And while I can’t guarantee that your quarterback won’t get sacked or that your receivers won’t […]
Dessert tends to become an afterthought on Super Bowl Sunday, but after all of the spicy chicken and cheesy dips, you’ll want a little something sweet! These cute little football-shaped truffles are easy to make ahead of time and are great for kids and grown-ups alike.
Everybody loves chicken fingers, but people rarely make them. It’s a shame, because homemade ones are both better and healthier! I like to serve these with honey mustard and plum sauce for dipping.
7 layer dip is one of those old standbys that it’s hard to mess up, but it’s also hard to make stand out as an allstar. But with black beans, a mix of salsa and pico de gallo, and the best guacamole ever….trust me– this one stands out.
It’s the Superbowl–don’t bother with poxy little wings…try drumsticks! They’re a great wing-alternative that are meatier, tastier, less messy, and cheaper. These two wing-style drumstick flavours are with simple and tasty ingredients. They’re easy to make and are hearty enough to fill up even the hungriest of game watchers.
My Guacamole Hummus (I was going to call it guacummus or hummamole but thought better of it) combines two of your favorite things and is ready in a flash. Plus it’s vegan, full of protein and fiber, and is just as good on crunchy veggies as it is on tortilla chips.
Order jalapeno poppers at any local pub, and you’ll get balls of deep-fried weirdness and watered down marinara sauce. These, mercifully, are not that. Fresh roasted jalapenos give a great kick alongside a cheesy, mexican-style filling.
Pictured here on my Perfect 7 Layer Dip, this lighter take on traditional guacamole will be ready in less than 5 minutes, and will guarantee that you’ll never, ever, ever buy store-bought guacamole again. The only downside? Your friends will always want you to make it.
