A Healthy Workday Snack: Spicy Baked Chickpeas Spicy baked chickpeas have to be one of the easiest (and healthiest!) snacks ever. Seriously—all you have to do is toss some chickpeas together with olive oil and whatever spices or herbs you’re in the mood for, a little bit of salt and pepper, and then bake. I’ve included a basic recipe, as well as some extra ingredient variations below. Rinse one can of chickpeas under running water, then dry with a paper towel. Pour onto a baking sheet and toss with one tablespoon of olive oil, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp pepper, and ¼ tsp red pepper flakes. They’re ready when they’re crispy and golden! There are so many different options you can try with these, so feel free to experiment with any ingredients you have on hand.

Coconut Curry Popcorn I’m back with another week of The Food Matter’s Project! This week Kate (from Cookie and Kate) chose one of my all time favorite snacks: popcorn. I’ve been known to stand on my soapbox before about making your own popcorn (and not buying pre-bagged, fake butter popcorn.) So I was excited when Kate chose such a simple yet perfect snack! I love popcorn because it is cheap and easily versatile. I opted to mix my popcorn up this time. This popcorn turned out delicious and seriously made the perfect snack!

Cactus Cut Potatoes I don’t eat at Boston Pizza very often, but when I do I always get the Cactus Cut Potatoes. They are crispy and spicy and they come with the most amazing dip. My brother in law found a copycat recipe online for the dip so I gave it a whirl. It is perfect!! This dip is to die for; it tastes just like the stuff at BP! I decided to bake my potatoes instead of frying them, just to cut the fat a wee bit. What you need, For the dip: 6 tbsp. sour cream 1 cup Caesar salad dressing (I used Kraft creamy Caesar) 1 ½ tbsp. finely grated Parmesan cheese 1 ½ tbsp. finely chopped green onion ¼ tsp. dried chili flakes (if you like it spicy you could add in a little more) For the potatoes: 2 large russet potatoes, washed and sliced thinly 3 tbsp. olive oil Salt and Pepper to taste. In a medium bowl mix together the sour cream, Caesar dressing, Parmesan cheese, green onion and chili flakes. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let the flavours come together. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Serve hot with the dip. Jen

Curried Roasted Carrots l Once Upon A Chef These sweet and spicy roasted carrots make a fabulous side dish, but they’re also delicious all on their own. In fact, on those rare (and dare I say treasured) nights when I’m on my own for dinner and don’t feel like fussing with a full meal, I’ll make them for myself as a main course. They’re like a treat, and I can easily polish off the entire dish myself. Begin by peeling the carrots. Slice them into thirds on a diagonal (they’re prettier that way). Toss the cut carrots with olive oil, salt and curry powder. And roast in a hot oven, turning a few times with a rubber spatula so they brown evenly, until tender and caramelized. Toss the carrots with honey and serve. Servings: Serves 4--6 Cook Time: 25 - 30 Minutes Ingredients 2 pounds medium carrots, sliced into thirds on the diagonal3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil1 tablespoon curry powder 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt1 tablespoon honey, or to taste Instructions Set oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Cover balls in chocolate. Place in refrigerater. Ta-da! A view of the inside... Yes, these are as good as they look...better probably!

These put the crack in crackers! « Sweet Teeth So, I had some of these crack-tastic crackers in Warrenton, TX, recently and I had to try and re-create them. I don’t like to joke about drugs, especially crack, but really, these are so addicting. So, just say NO…if you must. You won’t eat just one, I can guarantee you that. I perused the internet for some similar recipes that use a Ranch dressing packet, like the little oyster crackers that I am also fond of eating. Crack-tastic Crackers 1 – 1 1/4 cup canola oil (you decide how much you want to use) 1 packet Ranch dressing mix 2-3 Tbs. red pepper flakes (I used close to 3…a little warm) 4 sleeves of Saltine crackers (give or take…however many you can fit in your mixing bowl) 1) Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl for a good long while (5-10 minutes), to really get the crackers coated. 2) Lay them out on a cookie sheet and drizzle the yummy, ranchy, peppery oil that’s in the bottom of the bowl, over the top of the crackers. 3) Let them cool and store in a big ol’ baggie. That’s it!

Warm Bean Dip So with all the talk and posting of Super Bowl party grub I have to be honest, I am not a fan of football. At all. No offense to any of you fans out there, but I'm just keeping it real. Thankfully, I lucked out and married a man that isnt a fan either. He is a lover of motocross and dirt bikes. So with my confession, I do have to say that we like to watch the Super Bowl. (no that is not my manly hand, it's my hubbys) Warm Bean Dip 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened 1 cup sour cream 2 cans (16 ounces, each) refried beans 1 packet taco seasoning 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded 2 cups monterey jack cheese, shredded DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese in melted and slightly browned.
