Black Bean Hummus

I’ve been doing lots of wraps lately. I decided to do a different version of hummus so I didn’t get burned out on the traditional stuff. Yum. Great smeared in a wrap or simply served as a dip with bread or chips. Print Black Bean Hummus Author: Next Good Meal Serves: 8   Ingredients 3 cups black […]

Pad Thai Project

** Please now go to the “personal discovery of Pad Thai & Pad Thai Sauce” **Please check out the even more updated and simplified recipe. I did three versions of pad thai this past weekend.

The mushrooms and spinach just weren’t the best buddies for a calzone. I like something a little more flavorful. This attempt with olives and spinach was sooooooo good. It will be repeated […]

He started this when we had Thai take-out and ordered a pad vegetable dish for him. This home cooked version includes broccoli, carrots, and squash served on whole […]

Peanut Sauce

I’m happy with this batch. The taste is yummy. I was able to transfer some of it back into the empty honey squeeze container. It filled that, a peanut butter jar, and still had 3 single serves left in the bowl. One of those servings was claimed immediately by the 2yo for use with tofu […]
