Although pâté might not be up your alley (it's made from chicken liver), I highly recommend trying it at least once in your life, because it's delicious. Pair it with some cheese and a baguette, and you've got yourself a match made in heaven.
I've been eating and loving pâté since I was a kid. (I wasn't your average kid though... I was the kind who would have opted for blue cheese and pâté over a King sized Kit-Kat any day of the week.) Moral of the story- if a kid can eat pâté, so can you!
Hummus is a lovely, healthy, and versatile dip, but I'm sure you already knew that. What you might not know though, is just how easy it is to make at home! With this Three-Minute Hummus recipe you'll be on your way to dip-ville in no time.

Salmon Patties / Salmon Cakes are easy, delicious, and make a great alternative to crab cakes. They're also fantastic as an appetizer, atop a salad, or between a couple buns!
I've been making these salmon patties for a few years now. Asher and I created this recipe on a whim while trying to diversify how we prepare fish, and it's been a favorite ever since.
Though I keep my salmon patties fairly consistent, the beauty of this recipe is that you can easily add in additional ingredients*. For instance, you could add in chopped spinach, fresh garlic, lemon zest, or dare I say.... bacon!
*Make sure to adjust the breadcrumbs or egg so the mixture will hol...
When you hear the word ‘pickle’ I’m guessing your mind automatically thinks about large green dill pickles or those bread-and-butter pickle chips you get on a burger? Well, my friend, you’re in for a surprise because these are not the kind of pickles I’m referring to.
Asher and I make rice bowls for dinner quite often because they are easy, delicious, dietary-restriction sensitive*, and customizable. (Not to mention we can make fried rice a few days later with any leftovers.) But they can get pretty boring unless you know what to put on them, which is why we always make quick pan-asian toppings!
I call these pickles “pan-asian” because we when we make th...
I've been a pesto lover since I was a kid. I mean really, what's not to love. It's great with pasta, as a dip, on pizza, or on your finger as you're taking it out of the Cuisinart... Regardless of how you enjoy it, you can now make it at home with this super fast, inexpensive, and easy recipe. (Seriously, it only takes about 5 minutes to make and consists of 8 easy to find ingredients.) It's also really versatile because it tastes great both hot and cold.
One trick I've discovered while making pesto over the years is to use almond meal (aka almond flour) instead of whole almonds. Believe me, it will make your life SO much easier and it makes a much smoother,...
