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:

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.

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.

Yet another reason to love champagne

Next to a nice malbec, my wine of choice (especially in summer) is prosecco. It’s delicious, inexpensive, and has the power to make a small occasion feel like a celebration.   After opening a bottle for a cook out last week, I looked a bit more closely at the cork and had an idea – in addition to providing economical bubbly, my prosecco provided the perfect base for a display card holder.

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.

Homemade Deodorant {six ingredients}

The idea of  aluminum based compounds and parabens seeping into my skin got me to switch to Tom’s of Maine deodorant a couple of years ago. Now, the idea of rubbing petro-chemicals (found in Tom’s of Maine) into my skin has started to bother me. So, after finding a recipe for homemade deodorant on Apartment Therapy last week, I decided to give it a try.

Cinco de Mayo {Double Agave Margarita}

I’m a big fan of margaritas. That being said, I don’t get to drink them very often. I prefer a traditional style with simple ingredients and sometimes it can be tough to find a classic margarita among all the slushie style and tub mix versions.  The warmer weather paired with Cinco de Mayo celebrations tomorrow has put me in the mood for my favorite margarita.
