This post is a collaboration of all my favorite FUN FOOTBALL FOODS!   I’ll be totally honest with you… I really don’t care one bit about football or the Super Bowl.  I’m literally there for the FOOD.  Whether it’s at a Bama game tailgate or at a friend’s house watching the Super Bowl, just give me yummy football food, baby!  I’ve learned to ‘like’ football for only 2 reasons.  Continue reading “Super Bowl EATS!!!”

Chickpea Shawarma Hummus

This morning Omar and I were talking about our end of the year goals and how we desperately want to end 2017 on a really good note.  I won’t say this has been the worst year ever because that would be way too dramatic…and when I see other people dealing with way harder issues than what we’re going through, it makes me feel horrible for being down in the dumps over things that in the grand scheme – aren’t really that life altering.  I’m just a big baby sometimes when things don’t go my way….or better yet….go as I PLANNED it.  Can I just say Continue reading “Chickpea Shawarma Hummus”

Vegan Queso Nachos

The ultimate dude food!  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE for the love of God do NOT let the title of this recipe put a smirk or a rolled up lip on your face that makes you not want to TRY these NACHOS!!!  I will not lie to you.  Omar was a little apprehensive about these, too.  You have my permission to call, text, facebook or email him and ask him his opinion on these.  ALL I’m going to say is this:  Do you see that pan of Nachos up there?  It was completely empty when supper was over!
