My boys and I definitely make the most of summer. We have just completed six of seven summer 2017 trips and I swear there's an eighth that I'm forgetting about. It was sad driving away from our amazing family in Iowa today.Read More
My sweet niece Emma hugs me tightly every time I bring this salad to a family gathering. It may as well have alcohol in it because it makes everyone giddy and excited. This is the salad that everyone swoons over at parties.Read More
Summer salads kinda make me swoon. I become abnormally giddy about a good salad in the summer, the same way I become abnormally giddy about apples in the fall. I have a handful of salads that I make alllll the time starting in about April and ending in August.Read More
My little boys and I are wrapping up Spring Break week. While it has been wonderful on so many fronts, I am currently on overload and am secretly praying for a few moments of alone-time peace. Or for a cold margarita to fall from the sky.Read More
Since the day I started this blog, I have been excited to write a post about this salad.

I'm not kidding.Read More
Time to make your own delicious Edamame Hummus. Garlic, lemon juice, edamame and ginger are just a few ingredients you’ll enjoy the flavors of. This is a simple, healthy snack to have on hand. Yummus Hummus!
Hummus will forever remind me of my second pregnancy. I feasted on the stuff daily. I would sit in my little bedrest spot on the couch and eat half of a container of the Sabre roasted pine nut variety, scooping it out with pieces of flatbread. Of course, I could have eaten a lot of things during that time. Ok, I did eat a lot of things during that time.
Having recently been given a food processor as a gift (thank you, Husband!), I am on a mission to create some delicious hummus concoctions of my own. First I want to attempt a few tried and true recipes to get a feel for what ingredients I enjoy the most. I grabbed this recipe out of a holiday cooking magazine and made a few alterations. I love hummus and I love edamame, so I was eager to see how it turned out.

I loved it! My husband loved it! My three-year-old wouldn't try it because it was green. He prefers the non-green variety.
I found that this was most delicious with vegetable dippers such as radishes, red peppers, carrots and celery. Pita wedges also went great with it.
As my three-year-old says, "Yummus hummus!" Looking for another great Edamame Recipe? Check out my Quinoa Edamame Salad, it is packed with fresh fruit and veggies so you can feel free to indulge without the guilt!
