I'm Back!

I know it's been a while since my last post. Life has been plenty crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm not cooking. It just took too much effort for me to both cook and then blog about it afterward. :) However, I did want to share a great new recipe I tried last week, and then the simple, but lovely dinner I had tonight. 

I borrowed a copy of Chloe's Kitchen from the library, and knew after flipping through the pages that the Falafel Sliders with Avocado Hummus was something I needed to try ASAP. There are three steps to this recipe: the falafel sliders, the avocado hummus, and the tahini sauce. I opted not to make the tahini sauce, just out of sheer laziness. Next time I'll try it as well. Even with the sauce, however, these sliders were a resounding success!
The creamy avocado hummus and slightly spicy chickpea burgers complemented each other perfectly. I served this with some kale chips. Such a great dinner. I will definitely make this again and again.

Tonight, I decided to opt out of Labor Day picnic grilling festivities and make something I've been craving for a while now: fried peanut butter sandwiches. Elvis' favorite, only with fresh raspberries instead of bananas, whole grain bread instead of white, and a mixture of natural almond butter from East End Co-op and the Peanut Butter Co's White Chocolate peanut butter.
I almost never have sandwiches, period, so this was a great treat.

    It's sinful I've never had a Fried Peanut Butter Sandwich of any kind. What have I been waiting for?
