Roasted Corn and Mango Pico de Gallo

Corn Mango Pico de Gallo

Full of both color and flavor, this pico de gallo will not disappoint. The corn and mango add a nice sweetness to a classic pico de gallo, which personally I love. I love to have a batch of pico de gallo on hand in my fridge as a go to for some added flavor. It’s…


Ajvar

Ajvar

So I was at Trader Joe’s and sampled this roasted red pepper dip, it was really good! I knew right away I wanted to recreate it at home (I mean even though Trader Joe’s prices are reasonable, why spend $3-4 on a jar of dip that I could easily replicate at home, I mean we…


Apple Butter

Apple Butter

Apple butter is an amazing thing! I absolutely love it! What I don’t love is the high fructose corn syrup in almost every single commercial kind you can find! That’s why years ago I decided to figure out how to make my own. Turns out it’s really not that hard, especially in a crockpot (where…


Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

This dip was so good I could barely keep from eating it all! My first though is to serve it with graham crackers which is really good. But I have also found it to be excellent with cinnamon and sugar pita chips or slathered on a bagel (particularly a pumpkin bagel!) I also think it…


Mint Basil Pesto

Mint Basil Pesto

Mint adds a fun fresh twist to your classic pesto. Bonus if you pick the mint and basil fresh out of your garden, like I did! Pesto is so quick and so easy to whip up I really see no reason not to use fresh pesto every time. I made this up on a whim…


Thai Coconut Curry Hummus

Thai Coconut Curry Hummus

So a week or so ago my friend posted a picture of her snack at work, it included Thai Coconut Curry Hummus, that just sounded totally amazing to me! I have not been able to stop thinking about it! I googled the ingredients to try to create my own. This is what I came up…


Baba Ganoush

I decided to make baba ganoush with those baby eggplants I bought. I probably looked at  100 recipes and then of course just winged it after that and based it off what I had in my kitchen. I didn’t have any lemons, but I did have several grapefruits in desperate need of being used up,…


Homemade Ketchup

Homemade Ketchup

I hate the fact that bottle ketchup has high fructose corn syrup, and if you want the all natural kind it’s way more expensive. So I decided to try to make my own and it came out great! I like this stuff WAY better than store bought! It’s great too because you can totally control…


Raw Berry Jam

I’ve seen pictures of this jam going around facebook and have been meaning to try it out for a long time. Finally managed to make some before my kids gobbled up all the berries! I made mine with strawberries, they have been on sale for cheap the last few weeks so I have been buying…


Cheese Fondue

Seriously, like other then chocolate, what can be better then cheese and bread? Yum! I know, I know, it’s not the healthiest thing out there, not even close, but it’s so good! I like to make it for super special at home date nights, which is why I thought it would be perfect to share…
