Garlic Hummus

So I have not been posting as much lately and I wanted to let you all know that there is a good reason for that.  I am PREGNANT!  And one of the symptoms I have been experiencing pretty strongly is nauseousness and aversions to strong smelling foods!  This has resulted in me living on a steady diet of mostly toast, fruit, ice cream, pasta and Cucumbers!   However as I am getting deeper into the second trimester, I am venturing back into the kitchen and attempting to actually cook a few meals and to prepare some food for myself and my poor starving husband!

Today I made my most basic recipe for hummus.  The great thing about this hummus is that you can flavor it however in the world you would like!   I will expound on that more later, but for now…lets get to the recipe!  I kept it pretty simple today  as simple is better for my taste buds and stomach right now.  This is a really healthy snack that is good to keep in the fridge as you can eat it with crackers, naan bread, veggies, or spread it on sandwiches.  For me right now it is good so that I have something to dip my Cucumbers in!  Also it is actually much CHEAPER to make your own hummus at home…just some food for thought!

Holy Moly Guacamole!

Game day rolls around and it is SO easy to just order a few pizza’s and break out the chips and salsa and call it good!  I do think it is nice to also offer something homemade alongside all of the traditional game day fare! As the NFL Playoffs are here and the Super Bowl is around the corner…this Guac is a must have for your game day offerings! It is fresh, delicious, and will disappear before your very eyes!

We had a couple friends over for the Seahawks first playoff game against the Saint’s and I made enchiladas and this guacamole. I don’t want to assume…but I think it might have made all the difference in helping Seattle to a Win…that and our team playing AWESOME! Enjoy!

Taiwanese Chicken Noodles

The fall season in Seattle has been GORGEOUS thus far with lots of Beautiful Fall colors and sunny fall days!  However, this week has been very cold and rainy making warm comforting meals sound really good every single night!  After a rainy drive home from church, we arrived home chilled and hungry!  Not wanting to wait an hour for lunch I needed to make something quick and warm to feed my Chris, my friend, and myself!  I knew just the thing…at least I thought I did.  I had actually never made this dish before…oh well!  I just went ahead with it and hoped for the best…and it turned out pretty good!

I first saw this recipe  for Taiwanese Pork Noodles at Steamy Kitchen and thought I simply had to try it!  I changed a couple things and added a few things to make it my own and the result was a quick (25 minutes from start to finish) and light recipe that was really yummy and great for any cold day when you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen!  It is actually EVEN Better the next day warmed up as leftovers!
