Make some chili.

Perfect Oven Fries - Your Vegan Mom The ability to pull a perfectly crisp and brown little wedge of potato from your oven is one of the primary skills of a successful adult. Do yours stick? Never quite crisp up? Brown unevenly? Let's work this out together. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. (All except first photo by Dorka.) Not-so-Dumb Salad Recipe with Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Onions, Avocado, and Balsamic Vinegar There are a lot of salads with tomatoes and cucumbers on this blog. That's partly because I love tomatoes and cucumbers and grow them in my garden every year. To me that combination just screams summer, but I also eat tomatoes and cucumbers all year (whenever I can get good flavorful tomatoes and Persian cucumbers from Costco.) So when a reader from Hawaii named Lisa sent me her recipe for "dumb salad" and said it was something she made often, I was interested. Lisa invited me to change it up a bit, but really I didn't change it much except to sub diagonally-sliced green onions for the sweet onions she used. I used my first garden cucumber (on the right) which I combined with two Persian cucumbers. Not many tomatoes yet around here, so I used these sweet Cherubs tomatoes from Costco. I cut the green onion in diagonal slices to make about 1/4 cup, but more would be okay too. You need one perfectly ripe avocado, diced into smallish pieces. Instructions: South Beach Suggestions:

Jalapeno Hummus Ravioli I have been experimenting with hummus a lot lately while serving as the Sabra Brand Ambassador on MixingBowl.com and decided to try a Hummus Ravioli recipe they shared on their Facebook Page. I spent a bit of time debating about which hummus flavor to use: lemon, roasted red pepper etc. and decided to go spicy with the jalapeno flavor. I was not sure how this would taste but imagined it could be fun and boy was I right. I honestly thought it tasted like a jalapeno popper. This is a really quick recipe and would really impress guests. Which flavor of Sabra Hummus do you think would taste great in the ravioli? Ingredients (4 servings/3pcs. per person): 12 wonton wrappers 4 Tablespoons jalapeno Hummus 2 Tablespoons olive oil Directions: 1.
