Snack Time!

Hi there! Chilly day here in NW Iowa! Kinda fun though. I'm making a soup right now, can't wait!! 

I have some snacks to share with you. Really easy stuff today. First off, you don't even have to make anything... just buy it! :) 

Hummus and Pita Chips! Now, don't get any ol' hummus. You must get Sabra brand... it is the creamiest and smoothest hummus I've had. Do you know what hummus is? It's a dip made out of mashed chickpeas/garbanzo beans. So, some that you get can be kinda "gritty" or thick, but not Sabra. It is smooth and delicious! :) 

I like roasted red pepper flavor the best, but they make all kinds! Spinach & Artichoke, pine nuts, roasted garlic, original. They have something for everyone!

Yep, time to dig in!! :)

Better than chips and dip!

And now if you have a sweet tooth I have an easy cookie recipe for you. Only 4 ingredients!

These are Nutella cookies by Pioneer Woman. Have you ever had Nutella?

It's a chocolate hazelnut spread. Now, don't let the advertisements get you. Nutella advertises to be a healthy spread and a good way to get something "nutritious" in your kids. It's really not good for you. It's got a lot of sugar in it, but yes, a few nuts. So take it in strides... it is yummy!

Ok, so your 4 ingredients are--
- 1 cup Nutella
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients and shape into balls. Press onto a cookie sheet with your hand or the bottom of a glass. Bake for 8 minutes or until set. 

These cookies were great fresh out of the oven, but they weren't near as good the next day. I consider them an I-need-something-sweet-right-now-cookie b/c they're quick and use only 4 things! :)

Ok, I have to get back to my soup now! Hope to share the recipe with you later in the week! (Bean & Barley Soup)
