Sriracha Lime Popcorn

After enjoying one of my favorite snacks for the what must be nearing the 100th time while watching one of my favorite movies, The Philadelphia Story, I thought it high time to share. Here it is:

Sriracha Popcorn

Part of what makes this quick recipe a favorite is its simplicity, the other part is Sriracha which is an absolute staple in my house.

Strawberries + Champagne Cupcakes

I had the pleasure of celebrating a dear friend’s upcoming nuptials this past weekend. Because these major life events don’t happen just everyday, they deserve desserts that don’t happen just everyday. Cupcakes featuring strawberries and champagne seemed entirely appropriate. I followed a fantastic recipe from 20 Something Cupcakes.

Pan-seared Peaches & Steel-cut Oats

Second only to eggs, oatmeal is my favorite breakfast food. More specifically, steel-cut oats. A little crunchy, a little creamy and entirely reminiscent of my childhood. My mom used to make me oatmeal or cream of wheat for breakfast during the colder months of the school year and it was awesome. Unfortunately, due to my body’s love/hate relationship with gluten, cream of wheat is out of the picture. But, I still reach for oatmeal whenever the temperature drops below 50 degrees. Here’s one of my favorites.

A 25¢ Snack {Chili-Lime Roasted Chickpeas}

Chickpeas are versatile, delicious and inexpensive. In addition to making hummus, a new favorite snack of mine is roasted chickpeas. Sweet or savory, you can flavor them either way. In this case, they’re savory with a little kick.

Homemade Hummus

Making your own hummus is one of those things that lots of bloggers, like Money Saving Mom and Food Babe recommend for some very good reasons. 1) When you buy Sabra, one of the most popular brands, you’re actually buying from Pepsi Co., a company that has donated $1.7 million against GMO labeling. And, 2) the savings are sort of unbelievable – 25¢ can either get you 2 tbsp of store-bought hummus or 21 tbsp (~ 1.5 cups) of homemade hummus. Add these reasons to the ability to control your own flavor and texture, as with most things homemade, and I was sold on the idea.

poblano turkey burgers + black bean & corn salad

It was a fantastic coincidence that it was Arizona’s restaurant week during our visit. As a result, we ate tons of different food in Scottsdale – so much of it was amazing (if you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know this). But, it’s no coincidence that since my return to the east coast, I’ve been craving southwest food in a big way. So last night I recreated some of the flavors I was already missing with roasted poblano turkey burgers and a black bean and corn salad.
