Well, hello there!

Well, hello there!
Matt & I in Costa Rica over Christmas...So beautiful there!
It's simple. Really. We're a young married couple that loves cooking together. We always try to eat healthy and, if it's simple and doesn't break the bank, we're into that, too! We hope you'll visit often and tell us what you think about what we're cooking! We'd love to hear from you. Drop us a note, a suggestion or a recipe!

Today I made hummus from scratch!
It's so easy. So yummy and healthy.
Here's what you need:

Garlicky Roasted Red Pepper Hummus


1 can (15 oz) chick peas/garbanzo beans
1/4 Cup roasted red peppers
3 Garlic cloves, minced
3 Tbs. + 1 Tsp. extra virgin olive oil
Juice of one small lemon
Salt & pepper to taste


Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender
Blend until desired consistency is reached (it should be smooth, but not runny)

Enjoy! I made seasonded tortilla wedges to serve it with (for which the recipe is under the Valentine's blog entry), along with celery sticks.

It was SO GOOD! A great healthy, inexpensive snack or appetizer.
