Chickpea-Free Broccoli Hummus

You probably know by now that I have a thing for sneaking veggies into regular old recipes.  I put veggies in smoothies, soups, desserts ... you name it, and I've most likely tried some way to sneak a veggie in.  I've already shared my Veggie-Loaded Guacamole, and...

Forgive Yourself + Lemon Matcha Muffins (MMAZ!)

Mini confession time!  Last Thursday morning, I planned to go for a run and do Focus T25.  I had a busy day, but I had scheduled it into my calendar and was going to fit it in (this is a helpful tip - I always schedule in my workouts and treat them as any other...

Watercress Stuffed Bell Pepper Salad

Super (Bowl) Veggie Fries

You probably know that the Super Bowl is next Sunday, February 2nd.  (Actually, did you hear that they "reserve the right" to hold it any day between Friday and Monday, depending on the weather?!  Crazy!  But that's beside the point.) Super Bowl "Sunday" offers...
