Chicken Lo Mein

Chicken Lo MeinThis Chicken Lo Mein is a light, refreshing meal that is quickly and easily put together.  If you stock the sauce ingredients in your pantry this can be made impromptu, using any veggies you have on hand, with great success.  I just love meals like this that are nutritious, tasty, easy to make, and easily adaptable.

Easy Creamy Hummus

Easy Creamy Hummus

Hello friends.  With all the busyness of summer I’ve been absent from this blog for a little over a month, but I’ve really missed it.  I hope you’re having a great summer.

Today I have a simple, delicious recipe to share with you.

I love the creamy hummus that Mediterranean restaurants serve.  I’ve been making this hummus recipe fairly often over the last 12 months or so and I think it rivals good restaurant hummus – and it’s so much better than store-bought.  It’s super smooth and flavorful and makes a great snack or lunch – we like to dip tortilla or pita chips, pita bread, and sometimes sliced up veggies.  I love how easy this is to make – just throw everything in a food processor and process to your desired creaminess.

Easy Creamy Hummus

Ingredients

  • One 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (you can also use bottled, but fresh tastes better)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Paprika, sprinkled over the top for serving

Directions

  1. Place all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor.
  2. Process to your desired creaminess.
  3. Spoon the hummus onto a plate or into a bowl for serving.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil (about 1 tablespoon) and sprinkle with paprika. (As you can tell from the above picture, we like a lot of paprika.)

Quiche Lorraine

Remember that “Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche” phrase back in the 1980s?  I thought it was weird. I’m not sure where it originated.  Was it just a joke?  I’ve never known, but it probably was. Way back when I was a newlywed I bought a little quiche cookbook {maybe to test out that theory?} and […]

What I’m Reading this Summer

I’ve finally finalized the list of books I want to read this summer. A couple of them are light, quick reading books, two are so-called “children’s books,” some are thought provoking and a bit “serious,” and one is just fluff.  Hopefully each of them, in their own way, will help me grow as a person and understand […]
