When I'm looking for a healthy snack, especially one I can easily bring to work, I nearly always turn to hummus. I don't need to tell you all the different things you can do with hummus - you already know. But I do want to convince you that making your own is infinitely better than buying a prepackaged version at the grocery store.
Don't get me wrong - there are some great pre-made hummus' out there. But when you could have a more delicious, healthy, clean version that happens to work out costing you less money to have it why would you go for the other stuff?
Ah, yes. The week of Christmas is finally here! Which means being with family and...cooking in slightly unfamiliar kitchens. Sure - I grew up in this house! But unlike the awesome kids on, say, Masterchef Junior, I was not cooking as a 12 year old and therefore my parents' kitchen is slightly foreign to me. The food in the fridge, however, is not foreign. In fact, it is comforting to see the foods I have come to expect to be in their fridge.
My mom has always been a fan of Mexican flavors - salsa, sour cream, cilantro, red peppers, and so on. These 4 items are practically a guarantee to be in that fridge. It may not sound very festive, but think about it! You have the red of the salsa and peppers, the green of the cilantro, the white of the sour cream...the colors of Christmas! Throw a couple eggs into the mix and you have one festively colored, absolutely delicious way to start the day!
I'm Ali! Living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
