I’m a sucker for Chinese food. It’s one of those indulgences that are few and far between because rice is such a big part of it. I just love that saucy goodness that coats the rice and it’s so sweet and salty and savory.
Ok, so in my travels I found this subscription box called Mommy Mailbox. Basically they send you a box every month that is curated by a fellow mom and it contains adorable, useful, and delicious goodies. The fun part is, you get happy mail, and you never know what it will be. A few months back I got a three month subscription to give it a go. Well…
Damn it feels good to be a gansta// I mean one that you don’t really know// Ridin’ around town in a drop-top Benz// Hittin’ switches in my black six-fo’// WHATT!! Yep, I woke up with this song in my head which means, it is going to be a baller day. Like awesome. Imagonnarockit kinda day. Or at least it better be! haha
Game day is on the horizon people! The super bowl!! Or at least that’s what they tell me… I may be a litttttle bit more excited the appetizers and commercials than the game. For me, the hype is the best part! Let’s face it – when you think football game appetizers, you think gooey, cheesy, meaty, spicy goodness. Don’t forgo all the aforementioned delicious adjectives just because you are sticking to low carb and/or gluten free and/or vegetarian!
This appetizer is ah-mazing in its own right. I’ve been making this recipe for what seems like years, but only recently (well, yesterday) decided that maybe, just maybe, I could transform it into a super awesome appetizer. Don’t you love recipes that you can switch up? The only difference here is I just cut each low carb tortilla into quarters, piled on the yummies, and secured it with a toothpick. Rocket science, I tell you!
Sooo, I have a secret. As you may or may not have picked up from my previous hummus recipe, IIIIIII get a weee, ity bity little bit sick of hummus from time to time. I know, blasphemy. Perhaps this is self-inflicted, but we go through hummus spurts that leaves me feeling very over hummus. I’ve tried different hummus recipes but they never really stick. So I tend to constantly be searching for healthy snacks that aren’t hummus.
Enter artichoke dip. Heeellllllo, beautiful!! I made this dip, tortured Jaryd by making him wait while I took pictures to share with you all, and we put this baby away like it is no one’s business. I don’t want to embarrass anyone here (could very well be talking about myself), but when we ran out of things to dip, someone got a fork…
