Dilly Beans (probiotic canning method) | eatsnacklove.com

I am absolutely in love with dilly beans (aka: pickled green beans).  I wish we’d planted some this year, because I’d go hog wild in the back yard when those babies started to sprout.  Even without them at my fingertips, summertime is the best time to buy them in the store since they’re in season. […]

Cold Brew Coffee

Cold Brew Coffee | eatsnacklove.com

Having worked in the coffee world in my previous life, I feel that I should say things like, “of course I recommend cold brew” instead of, “what the heck is cold brew?”  Being the coffee addict (read: junkie) I am, I recently heard of this craze instead of being “in the know” like the rest […]

Because of my husband’s and my work schedules, there are many nights I’m fending for myself when it comes to dinner.  I love having dinner together as a couple, as I love to cook, and he loves my cooking.  (I think that was a big reason I married him!)  I enjoy sitting around the table […]

Remember that avocado ranch dressing/dip I was telling you about?  No?  Oh good, then you should keep reading because you’ll want to make sure you know about it.

Who doesn’t love a good Caesar salad now and again?  You know one way to make it go from good to great?  This little gem. Balsamic Caesar Dressing.  Oh yeah, I said it.   It’s a pseudo Caesar dressing, as it has most of the components, but not all of them.  It also has balsamic […]

Monday Thoughts: Happy Anniversary to Me

Ok, I shouldn’t have titled this “Happy Anniversary to Me” because really, it’s to “Us”.  It’s my husband’s and my second anniversary and holy moly, time flies.  Here we are in 2006, on our second date:   And here we are on our wedding day in 2012: So to the guy who puts up with […]

Avocado Ranch Dressing/Dip

 Avocados are one of my favorite things to eat when they’re in season.  Not only are they slightly less expensive this time of year (score!) but they’re also just that much better.   In the words of my favorite 6-year-old, “I yuv abocados.”  Haha, I love that kid. So to make the most of the […]

Spicy Baked Chickpeas

DSC_0030 (2)_edited

I found this recipe one day while I was watching 5 Ingredient Fix on the Food Network.  Her recipe was intriguing to me because I had a recent obsession with hummus.  I’d never used chickpeas in any recipe, so I was interested.  Let’s just describe them as this: crowd pleaser.  Not only for those consuming them, but […]
