Vegan Ranch Dressing

Vegan Ranch Dressing

Confession: I’ve fallen into a bit of a junk food snacking rut over the last few weeks. Is it my imagination or are the snack food aisles at the supermarket really so much better this time of year? I may have gotten a little carried […]

Roasted Chickpeas and Edamame

Roasted Chickpeas and Edamame

Introducing my current favorite snack… roasted chickpeas and edamame. Loaded with protein and so super easy to throw together. I usually like to keep it simple and only season with salt and pepper but you could absolutely customize with all sorts of seasonings. Chili powder, curry, garlic […]

Honey Mustard Pretzel Dip with Truvia Nectar

  Boots and sweater weather is here at last!  It’s actually cold enough now that the heater is on in the house and we have a roaring fire going in the fireplace every night. This makes me so happy I can’t even tell you. Today’s recipe […]

Marinated Cheese and Olives ~ Game Night Snack

Marinated Cheese and Olives ~ Game Night Snack

This was our Thanksgiving night snack as we were all gathered around the dining table, playing Taboo, which has recently become my new favorite old game. We all enjoyed the briny-cheesy-carby goodness so much I’m thinking this may make an encore appearance as part of […]

Easy Beer and Cheddar Dip

Easy Beer and Cheddar Dip

This dip is amazing with pretzels!  Don’t think about the calories, just eat it!  But wait a day or so, if you can.  While the dip is good right away, it’s even better the next day so it’s a great make-ahead appetizer or snack. The […]
