I love me a new cookbook! Add to that it’s written by a fellow Dietitian AND a friend AND we share a name…pretty spectacular combination if I do say so myself!

Cookie Dough Hummus

November 21, 2011 1 comment

There seems to be a theme lately….cookie dough treats! Healthier cookie dough treats that is! Traditional hummus dips are heavy on the garlic; however, this “dessert” hummus omits the garlic and instead, adds nut butter and a few chocolate chips!

It’s that time of year again, where parents celebrate and children rejoice (haha) that it’s back to school time! (Secretly, I always liked going back to school…I have a weird enjoyment of brand new school supplies and freshly organized binders! Shhh….) Back to school means (for most of us), packed lunches! While some schools within […]
