Tomato & Olive Salad {with smoked paprika vinaigrette}

by Lauren

So, this salad (or salsa? Or dip?) has been a huge hit around these parts lately. I’ve now taken it to a dinner party as a salad and camping as a salsa/dip and in both cases, the bowl came home empty.

After eating ham, cheese, and bread, every day on our honeymoon we craved vegetables. Just a tiny carrot, a leaf of kale, a slice of a beet – really, anything without carbs involved would have been totally acceptable.

So, last week was crazy busy. We missed you guys. Apologies for the lack of posts but between a few late nights at work, wedding planning, graduation parties, and other various commitments, things have been hectic.

Despite pure exhaustion from driving 381 miles this weekend (ok, so maybe Chris drove, but Chrissy and I were wonderful co-pilots) we are back in action in the LYK this week and bringing you the best spread since butter.

Or possibly a fruit hummus. Strawberries? That … Read more...

Got Chips? Make some orange guacamole!

Yes, orange guac, my friends. Orange is the new lime.

This still contains all the delicious guacamole staples like red onion, cilantro, and garlic but with a little twist.

Now, I’ve never bought a jicama before which means I’ve never peeled a jicama before. They look pretty intimidating but I went for it.

The crunch from the jicama and the juice from the sweet orange was such a fresh combination of flavors.

It’s going … Read more...

As you may know, I have a big family consisting of 6 siblings and one awesome mom.

After church on Sunday, it was our weekly ritual to hit up Costco to stock up for the week (yes, the week; groceries never lasted long in our house). Naturally, we would fill up on samples, while my mom did all the shopping.
