Whether you’re all about the snacks, the commercials, the game, or all three, Super Bowl Sunday is just a couple days away and it’s time to get those menus planned out! So I decided to round up a handful of my favorite healthier Super Bowl snacks for you to add to your spread.

Edamame Sweet Pea Pesto Hummus

Healthier Super Bowl Snacks

My love affair with homemade hummus started nearly a decade ago. And since then, I have experimented hundreds of times, and each batch gets just a little bit better. Today’s recipe for this edamame sweet pea pesto hummus is my favorite creation to date; it is so smooth and creamy, and you can’t beat the […]

The Best Classic Hummus

The Best Classic Hummus

I have been making hummus for about a decade now; I buy it from grocery stories; order it at restaurants; find it at farmer’s markets and food trucks. So I feel confident when I say I am a hummus expert, and have finally cracked the code on what it takes to make the best classic […]

Easy Vegan Spelt Biscuits

Easy Vegan Spelt Biscuits

Even though I live in sunny California, this weekend was miserable and gloomy, not quite the blizzard in the Rocky Mountains, but still gross. To combat the dropping temperatures, I baked all day, and the results were these easy vegan spelt biscuits.

Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

Have you ever found yourself in a position, say after taco night, when you have a few corn tortillas leftover? Those pesky 3 or 4, sit waiting in the fridge for weeks on end. Until eventually you give up and throw them away? Zero judgement, I’ve done it many times. Until I realized I could […]

Sweet Potato Nacho Pie

Healthier Super Bowl Snacks

We’ve made it to Super Bowl Sunday, one of the best holidays for SNACKS. Earlier this week I whipped up this sweet potato nacho pie for lunch and it was unanimously voted onto Sunday’s menu. It’s a fork and plate situation, and I’m 100% ok with it. Imagine veggie fajitas, that are baked, with melted […]

Toasted Garlic and Lemon Hummus

Toasted Garlic and Lemon Hummus

And second, because the flavors you can achieve at home are really unbelievable. This toasted garlic and lemon hummus totally surprised me […]

Spicy Sweet Pea Hummus

Spicy Sweet Pea Hummus

This recipe for spicy sweet pea hummus was born over two years ago. However, the batch was so terrible, I’m pretty sure I threw it away. My notes in my recipe book said “too sweet.” There is a fine line when you’re cooking with sweeter vegetables; too much and your dish can wind up tasting […]

Parmesan Crusted Sweet Potato Fries

Parmesan Crusted Sweet Potato Fries

For about as long as I’ve been eating sweet potatoes, I’ve been trying, and failing to create perfectly crunchy fries. Then one day last week, I made these parmesan crusted sweet potato fries, and hallelujah! I did it.

Greek Yogurt French Onion Dip

Greek Yogurt French Onion Dip

Super Bowl Sunday, we all know it, and most of us partake in one way or another. I am about 50/50; 50% football, 50% food. Which brings me to this Greek yogurt French onion dip. Yup, a healthy, and delicious game day dip that will have everyone asking for a double batch. The best part? […]
