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.

Organized Cooking

After I graduated from college, I started cooking more frequently. And, I’m lucky enough to have lots of people in my family who have passed down recipes so my collection grew quickly. For a while I kept my recipes on top of the fridge, then in a drawer, then in a folder, and eventually in a three-ring binder. Recently I’ve outgrown my 1 inch three-ring binder and had to move into a larger one. Here’s how I keep all of my recipes, and in turn, my kitchen semi-organized.

Oh hey, Parfait.

As a teenager, the early morning hours and I were not compatible. To be fair, I rarely gave them a chance. Now, the morning is my favorite part of the day. This naturally leads to breakfast being my very favorite meal. This strawberry + walnut + honey parfait is one of my go-to breakfasts (and sometimes afternoon snack and sometimes dessert) mainly because it’s simple and delicious. Side note: if you made Banana + Walnut Pancakes {100% whole wheat} over the weekend, this parfait is even easier as you’ll have all but one of the ingredients on hand.

Banana Walnut Pancakes {100% whole wheat}

I am continually on the hunt for a pancake recipe that uses whole wheat flour without turning out pancakes that have the consistency of an old dish sponge. This recipe is the best I’ve found and after making a few minor tweaks, these were the best 100% whole wheat pancakes I’ve eaten.

Big ol’ bowl of coleslaw.

I love coleslaw – tangy and sweet, it’s my favorite summertime side dish. Because I like it so much, I make my own so I can control the ingredients and make it a little healthier.

World’s easiest latte

I love my morning coffee. And, I love summer. But, sadly – the two cannot co-exist. The newly warm-ish weather strongly deters me from sipping on a piping hot mug for 45 minutes. That’s where the world’s easiest latte comes in.

First, pour a cup of milk into a glass jar. (I use 1%.)
