It has been WAY too long since I was able to post. I've been such a busy girl! Between a full time job and selling my gluten free/dairy free eats through Umi Kitchen I haven't had too much spare time to do photo shoots and write.
That being said, I've created some new dishes that have very quickly become my favorites - and this is one of them. It has been a huge hit with people throughout Brooklyn who have ordered from me and now I'm sharing it with all of you so you can make it at home if you aren't in the Brooklyn area!
We have been quite lucky in Brooklyn this winter because it hasn't been nearly as cold as it was the last few years. Regardless, I still have that spring itch. And with temperatures rising into the 60s this week and Easter only three weeks away I'd say my itch is about to be scratched! Crossing my fingers that spring is truly here.
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?
I just love the smell of cinnamon first thing on a chilly fall Sunday morning. When I woke up this morning I knew cinnamon had to somehow be involved in my breakfast.
Earlier this week I snacked on a pear with some almond butter at work. I loved the two flavors together and decided to recreate it this morning. Oats just made perfect sense in my mind to bring it all together!
For the last couple of weeks my boyfriend had been exploring Canada and Alaska with his mom. I've become so accustom to cooking for two that cooking for one was quite the challenge! I realized a couple days in that the best course of action was to make things that would hold up well into the next day so I could have leftovers for the next day's lunch.
