Hi friends, happy Friday! Better yet, happy Friday-before-a-holiday-weekend!
Aka the best kind of Friday.
I don’t know about you, but the week before a holiday always seems so chaotic. I feel like I’m constantly running around like a chicken with its head cut off just trying to do all. the. things. In fact, as I write this at 10PM on Thursday, I realize that this is probably one of the first times I’ve really sat down for more than 15 minutes all day. I almost forgot how good it feels to just SIT. Then again, I have a feeling I’ll be singing a different tune tomorrow after sitting in the car for 6 hours..
Anywhooo, chances are I’m not the only one out there with a mile-long to-do list this week.. so let me just cut to the chase. These Greens & Beans Vegetarian Meatballs are pretty fantastic and you should probably make them ASAP. The end. (more…)
Pumpkin Pie Dessert Hummus is everything that you love about pumpkin pie.. without all the fuss! This protein-packed dip comes together in minutes and tastes just like pumpkin pie filling. Serve with homemade Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips, fresh fruit, or graham crackers for a healthy fall snack or sweet treat.
You know that saying, “as easy as pie”? Yeah, I never really got that.
To me, pies are some of the most laborious desserts out there. After all, it’s basically two recipes disguised as one (if you’re making the crust from scratch, that is).
First, you have to make the dough. Then you have to roll the dough. Then you have to transfer the dough to a pie plate. Then you have to go back and inevitably fix all of the holes that you tore in the process. Then you need to parbake the the crust. And then you need to make the filling. Then you have to transfer the filling to the cooled pie crust. Then you have to bake the pie for another hour. And then, THEN, after all that, you finally pull your labor of love out of the oven, only to realize that you forgot to cover the crust with foil, so the edges are burnt to a crisp. *Siiiigh*
The whole thing is nothing short of a broadway production.
Luckily, I’ve found a way to evade all of this unnecessary hassle (are you surprised?)
It’s called… PUMPKIN PIE DESSERT HUMMUS. (more…)
Blender Chipotle Pumpkin Salsa is the perfect addition to your fall tailgate menu! Smoky chipotle peppers are paired with subtly sweet pumpkin, resulting in a flavorful dip with just the right amount of kick.
I tried, guys. Really, I did.
I promised myself I would wait until the first day of fall to open my first can of pumpkin. I refused to be that girl. You know the one I’m talking about.. the one that is all “OMG #PSL” in like, August.
And yet, here we are. Three days away from the official start of fall and elbows deep in Chipotle Pumpkin Salsa. Soo close…

Hors d’oeuvres. Appetizers. Small bites. Tapas.
No matter what you call them, they’re an integral part of entertaining. Now, I should preface all of this by saying that I’m certainly no expert when it comes to hosting lavish gatherings (or just plain old gatherings for that matter).. BUT when it comes to eating, I like to think I know my stuff. (more…)

Hi friends! Just popping in quickly to share an easy and delicious recipe for the “big game” that’s coming up this weekend!
I say “big game” in quotations because, if we’re being honest, I really don’t care for either of the teams playing. In fact, it’s rare that I have much of a preference one Super Bowl team over another. Let’s just say that being from Upstate New York and living in Ohio doesn’t leave a whole lot to root for come NFL playoff time…
