If you read my emotional cookie post yesterday, at least you were rewarded with a ridiculously delish recipe.
I’m back today to say Hooray, I made it through the first day of school. What I mean is I made it through my boys’ first day back to school.
That’s 2 down and 1 left to go. Kindergarten doesn’t start for another day, so I’m relishing this one on one time with my Littlest Little. If you have to hear a bit more emo from me on Thursday, I promise to compensate with a really fab recipe. 🙂
I was mistaken if I thought I’d have spare time to sit around and be sad after my big boys rode off in that school bus. The day was a whirlwind of marathon training, running errands, cooking, and photography. It actually shocked me a little when that school bus returned with my loud and excited boys. So soon?
So much for spare time. No, there won’t be any fancy shmancy cooking for me…
No, there won’t be Bruschetta with Roquefort Cheese and Peppers nor any other type of bruschetta on the snack table when the Littles come running home.
But this I can do. Easy, simple, and healthy snacks like this phenomenal Edamame Hummus. This is totally manageable.
I pretty much toss some great ingredients into my food processor and watch the magic happen within seconds.
In a blink, the Edamame Hummus is ready to be scooped out and into a bowl. To be eaten whenever, wherever, however.
We love our Hummus with any variety of corn chips, tortilla chips, pretzel chips, or pita bread. It’s super healthy, full of antioxidants, and unquestionably yummy. #healthyaddiction
The best part is that Edamame Hummus keeps extremely well, and can be stored in the fridge for several days. Maybe even a week. We wouldn’t know, because we devour big batches within days at our house.
Grab some frozen edamame and get blending. Enjoy!Print

This one is my most popular healthy treat. Avocado Black Bean Dip.
Speaking of avocados, this Avocado Hummus is another hands-down winner in the category of appetizers/snacks:
This Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus is easy and tastes magnificent. It’s a crowd pleaser for sure.
