Secret Family Recipe: Pickle Dip

Secret Family Recipe: Pickle Dip

I feel like everybody has a snack that makes them feel right at home. For me that snack is Pickle Dip. The first time my mom ever made it for me, we were on a little family weekend getaway in Deep Creek, Maryland. My sister and I devoured it. Since then, it’s become a favorite … Continue reading

Honey Roasted Almonds

Honey Roasted Almonds

One time, we bought a 5 lb bag of almonds at Costco. This was ridiculous, because I don’t like nuts and Yuseff isn’t a squirrel. This happened back when we were on the South Beach Diet, since plain nuts were on the list of approved snacks. We were allowed to eat something like 10 almonds a day. … Continue reading

Baked Potato Chips

Baked Potato Chips

So, I realize that some of the recipes that I post here are simplistic no-brainers. But you know what?

However, I ate the entire batch by myself over the course of one weekend, and … Continue reading

Healthy Midday Snack: Brie and Fruit Preserves

New Year’s Resolutions. How do you feel about them? I’m sure a lot of people are about to get snarky. I’ve noticed lately (mostly on Facebook– the world’s most depressing soapbox) that people are all about being “better-than” stuff… and sadly that’s the best way I can describe it. During this time of year, everybody … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Hummus

Peanut Butter Hummus

I was in high school before I tried hummus for the first time, and I feel like I was really missing out for the first fifteen years of my life. Now, hummus is one of my favorite foods! Unfortunately, my little Marco does not share my love of hummus, because– let’s be frank– it has … Continue reading

Berry Delicious!

Berry Delicious!

I walked down to Stan’s Market on Penn Ave the other day during my lunch break to buy the cantaloupe for the Prosciutto-Melon Salad and they had berries sitting there that I just couldn’t resist. I bought some blackberries and raspberries, and took them back to work to snack on. I had some blueberry flavored Fig Newton Fruit … Continue reading
