Cheesecake with a chocolate cookie crust

Cheesecake with a Chocolate Cookie Crust

Since making this chessecake there has been an incredible amount of self control going on at our house. Sure we inhaled half of it the first day but since then we haven’t touched it. We are expecting friends for dinner tomorrow night so I am actually saving it. Want a little bit of insight? The …

Homemade Falafel and Tahini Sauce

Homemade Falafel with Tahini Sauce

Remember when I bought tahini for the first time the other day? And made pita bread? Best day ever. So I did it again. Not the buying tahini part because I already had some but the making pita bread. Just a half batch this time. Lets not get crazy out of hand people. And then …

Sweet Potato Hash Browns with a delicious Ketchup Sauce

Sweet Potato Hash Browns with Ketchup Aioli

BRUNCH! Easter absolutely screams brunch to me. Even though I don’t think I have ever done an Easter brunch. We are mostly ham and deviled eggs sorta people around here.

Coconut Cream Pie Date Balls

A little over a year ago I found myself in the home of a lovely friend and she served me the most delicious date balls. I even shared them with you remember? What I didn’t share with you was the funny interchange that happened when I asked for the recipe. She looked at me puzzled. …

Homemade pita bread

Pita Bread

Hummus and pita go hand in hand. Right? Thanks for agreeing with me. A good mama friend of mine made these a few weeks ago with her littles. I have seen them all over Pinterest for months dying to try them. For some reason they simply haven’t surfaced on the list of things I needed …

Homemade hummus in minutes

Hummus

WHy is it that the basics are elusive? How on earth do I know how to make my own butter but have never made my own hummus? We even keep a stash of dried garbanzo beans on hand at all times so would think it would be something that was n my repertoire. Guess not. …

Cooking Dried Beans

Cooking Beans

It has astounded me how many vegetarians I have talked to of late who mentioned they don’t make/don’t know how to make their own beans. From scratch. I too used to be in the canned bean buying club. With my budget concious ways making my own beans was just a matter of time. At first …

Ok before I even begin I just want to say I am sorry/not sorry about this post. I try to not toot my own horn but sometimes being me is pretty dang awesome.
