I’m taking a BB*

*Blog Break

After a bit of an inner struggle, I have decided to take a few weeks off from blogging.  I need to take some time to find new recipes and re-charge my batteries.  I have been busy training for a 5km Spartan Sprint in mid-June, and because of this, I haven’t been spending a lot of time experimenting with new recipes.  My diet has consisted of salads and eggs, and that really isn’t exciting enough to share.

Cauliflower Hummus

Sun Dried Tomato Cauliflower Hummus

I have tried making a variety of different hummus recipes, and have loved each one. I am still amazed at how simple it is to make, and totally regret all the money I threw away by buying it pre-made in the grocery store.

As part of trying to stick (more or less) to a Paleo diet as part of my getting back on track for the New Year, hummus has been off my list, as it is made with chick peas, and they contain a lot of carbohydrates.

However, I have found a new hummus substitute and I couldn’t be happier. Drum roll please – Ta Da – Cauliflower Hummus 🙂

Blog Post #100

I can’t believe that today represents my 100th blog post! It is crazy to think that I have been doing this for almost a year 🙂

I never imagined that I would enjoy this creative outlet so much. Writing for Ruby Reduction twice a week is the most fun I have ever had writing.

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

I am back with yet another Hummus recipe 🙂  I still can’t believe that I used to buy this pre-made.  It is so easy to make yourself.  I must have thrown hundreds of dollars away on prepared product.  Yikes!

I was in the grocery store, when I saw a jar of oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes.  The idea struck me to make this into a delicious hummus, and to incorporate some of the oil from the jar of tomatoes into the mix.

Fennel, Apple and Chicken Chopped Salad

See, I told you I was on a salad kick right now! 🙂

I was looking for a salad that was different.  A salad that would provide an awesome flavour punch and would satisfy us as a meal, not just a side dish.

Pizza Bianca

This is actually the very first recipe that I ever made from America’s Test Kitchen (ATK). I had purchased one of their magazines during a grocery store outing, and while I was flipping through the pages, a photo of a gorgeous pizza crust caught my attention.

Even though the directions for this recipe are lengthy, it is actually very easy to make. There is just something magical about making bread. You throw some pretty basic ingredients together, and they just grow into something beautiful and delicious.

Black Bean & Caramelized Onion Curry Dip

*Just looking at the title lets you know that this is going to be pretty flavourful! 🙂

I love to dip. There, I said it. There is something just so fun and carefree about standing around and dipping your vegetables, crackers or pita bread into a communal dip (No double dipping allowed!). Get togethers just wouldn’t be complete without an assortment of dips to share and enjoy.
