toasted walnut enchilada hummus with cilantro + lime

Two recipes in one: toasty, nutty hummus drizzled with a fast and foolproof spicy sauce. Super addicting! Full recipe at www.thepigandquill.com. #vegan #superbowl #snacks #recipe

Oh yay! You guys are still here. Meaning my affinity for hot dogs (and a decidedly Americasian interpretation, at that) didn’t scare you away. I knew you could hang. As your reward, this week we’re talking more Superbowl-ready eats that are borderline goofy (enchilada sauce on toppa hummus? she dun lost her shit!) but silly delicious all the same. You’ll see what I mean when we get into the nitty gritty later on. And really, is it even that weird? It’s clearly not bizarre enough to warrant the gibberish I keep slapping in between all these parentheses (like this crap — which is here solely for the purpose of example), but I feel a little insecure every time I post something that’s not, like, THE Trending Item on Pinterest. (Side note: until I dunk an Oreo in waffle batter and drizzle it with peanut butter, I’m not sure I’ll ever be That Trending Item.) (Side side note: I would so eat that.)

Creamy Baked Eggs with Chimichurri (Christmas Eggs! w/ gf option)

This week has been a whirlwind. I’d point out my lack of posting, but perhaps you’ve already noticed? We learned a few days ago that Chris will be starting a new job in two weeks (he’s such a smartie!), we’re toying with the idea of moving (locally, but is moving ever easy?) — and after months of anticipation research, we finally sealed the deal on some new wheels for this little lady. Which begs the question: where was this heated steering wheel thing when I was driving to work in Level 3 snow emergencies a few years ago? Or 4WD, for that matter? Doing things backwards is fun. Happily, Thanksgiving weekend also marked the arrival of a snazzy 6′ Noble Fir, which is looking positively handsome in his Christmas skirt and wing-ed angel top hat. He’s a classy dude. And he’s totally rocking big, floppy plaid bows like it’s 1991. And a few well-placed My Little Ponies, just to keep things kitschy. We’ve even got this grapevine twine garlandy thing going on in all its Pottery-Barn-meets-actual-barn glory. It’s so freaking hip in here, you guys. I can’t even. And I don’t know about you, but once the tree goes up, … Read More
