Chickpeas in Romesco Sauce

I ate a LOT of great food this weekend, but after so many meals in restaurants I was definitely ready for a healthy home-cooked meal. This is actually the second time I’ve made this recipe; for some reason I never got around to blogging it the first time. My […]

Garbanzo Burgers with Muhammara

A few days ago I found out I won a trainer from a giveaway on Frayed Laces Within 10 minutes of the Fed Ex man placing it on the front porch, I had it set up and was happily pedaling away. It is SO MUCH BETTER than the exercise […]

Garbanzo Burgers

Let me preface this post with one important point: Heidi Swanson is my hero.  I first became addicted to her blog (101cookbooks.com) a year ago.  Then she put out the brilliant cookbook Super Natural Cooking. I am working my way through each and every recipe, and I love pretty […]
