Last Sunday was the first time I cooked something more than eggs in my new digs. Nothing too fancy, but it really made the space start to feel like home. I made my salted maple pecan olive oil granola (aka the best granola on the planet.. yep, claiming that title) which never fails to make my cupboards feel complete, and a batch of this chickpea yogurt dip. Have you guys made that one? It’s so good and so easy! This go around I also implemented Deb’s technique for getting super smooth hummus (removing all the skins from the chickpeas), and WOW, did it make a difference. She was not kidding about the texture. It’s worth every second of extra work… and it’s truthfully not that much work.

It’s still gonna take me some time to get back to creating new dishes at home. High hopes for next week! In the mean time I rounded up some of my fave dishes burried within the archives. Such good stuff here:

  1. Sweet + Salty Apple Cinnamon Granola Bars
  2. Buckwheat Pancakes with Maple Berry Sauce
  3. Popcorn Crunch Sundaes
  4. The Best Roast Chicken
  5. Sweet & Spicy Sesame Noodles with Rainbow Veggies
  6. Nutella Hot Chocolate
  7. Baked Ranchero Eggs with Blistered Jack Cheese
  8. Linguine with Butter, Pecorino, and Arugula
  9. Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade

Make some of it this weekend… ok? And a huge thanks for all of your heartfelt comments, emails, and messages on Monday’s post. It was not an easy one to write, but I’m so glad I did it. Have a good one! xo
