  • Best. Hummus. Ever. Period.

    We all have at least one "go-to" recipe don't we? I have a favorite soup, my simple salad dressing, and of course, an easy party drink. Well this hummus has become my go-to for entertaining, pot lucks, and anytime I'm looking to fix my Middle Eastern food craze. I've given this recipe out to many friends, and although I wasn't the creator, I do feel that this dip is a cornerstone of my cooking: full of flavor, relatively simple to make, and even better the following day!

Skinny Cake Batter Ice Cream

Do you wait until your kids go to bed to do stuff, just so that you don’t have to share?  We do.  After they go to bed, my husband eats ice cream, I eat chips, in general we eat junk.  Usually we are smart enough to destroy the evidence so they don’t ask for said […]

Ramona - LOL! I had to laugh at what I eat when my kids go to bed. I find my stash of chocolate mini candy bars and enjoy 1 or 2 . If they knew about it, it would be gone in a day. This ice cream looks fabulous!! What a nice treat for them to enjoy. :)

Tracy - I love this! I hope you guys had a wonderful vacation. I used to live in London before moving to Houston, so this post was a bit nastalgic for me! I love that you are exposing your kids to so much culture – kudos mama!

Anna - That looks like so much fun. London is such a great city.

Imperfectly Wonderful - Looks like you had a fabulous time! I love the Picasso quote you chose at the beginning…art really can do the body (and mind) good!

Gin and Tonic Sorbet

Another one of London’s classics:  a good gin and tonic.  My husband and I usually prefer a glass of wine, or a cold beer to a cocktail when we go out, but when he ordered this sorbet for dessert after a long lunch I knew I was going to make it when we returned home. […]

Fish & Chips: London’s Classic and More

Back from another amazing city and just like Barcelona, I’ve thought a lot about why to write about it, but I’m not coming up with the words to do it justice.  Instead, I’ll leave you with what is probably the city’s most notorious dish.  It’s rare to find a dish that we all love and […]

Asian Crunch Salad with Peanut-Lime Dressing

I wish I could say I liked eating vegetables.  No, I wish I actually did like eating vegetables.  I crave huge bowls of pasta, covered in sauce, smothered in cheese (are you hungry now, because I sure as hell am).  But alas, huge bowls of pasta, smothered in sauce, covered in cheese aren’t super healthy […]
