Calling all pumpkin lovers! 🙋🎃

I give you pumpkin in hummus form with a little sweetness thrown in there because we all just want the sweet side of pumpkin, right?

Not sure about you, but Pumpkin pie isn’t my everything at Thanksgiving. I don’t know why, but I have never been drawn to it unless served with whipped cream that covers most of the flavor of the pie. Pumpkin hummus though? Don’t even need to top it with whipped cream. ...continue reading "Sweetened Pumpkin Hummus"


Cheddar Pepper Pimento Boats-A quick under 80 calorie (for TWO) Game Day snack. The pimento creamy cheese filling can also easily stand alone as a dip when you are in a pinch! Brittany | Words Like Honeycomb

Try saying that 5x fast HA!

These little guys are in honor of GAAAAME DAY, which I know you love as much as I do! And then we are all honest with ourselves and confess our support is only as strong as the snack selection. Guilty.

But no guilt here! I am so with you on that one! I have had my seasons where I paid attention to all the little uniforms running around after a ball and I was appropriately dressed in team colors with my mega-sized sweet tea (because South y’all…) and cheered with the best of them.

I had my bouts with those sports but I came to grips with reality and self-nominated myself as a more devout follower of Snack Providers or Game Day Chef.

It fits me.

I like it.

It just…works.

Chipotle Cheese Sauce It's FRIIIIIIIIIDAY!

I'll be honest.  I didn't know if I would make it this week...but alas we are HERE and the weekend is upon us!

I did something bad the other day that became good...VERY good.

I was in the kitchen starved and alone with cheese.

This is the bad part.  And good part.

Because that liquid gold pictured above happened, which is AMAZING.  But then I wanted to try Chipotle Cheese Sauce on all things in sight. 0_0

I now know that Chipotle Cheese Sauce is great on nachos, burritos, tacos, chips...as  dip, roasted potatoes, on chips WITH guacamole...

I will just pretend the list ends there and let you explore more options on your own before I dive into yet another batch of this sauce and decide to make it soup.

Chipotle Cheese Sauce

(Note to self, explore options of Chipotle cheese sauce...soup.)

But hey, if we are all honest with ourselves there really is nothing bad that could involve cheese.  Because now we all have this gorgeous sauce that we can try on e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g and life is good.   And it's Friday...so there is that.

Just let this cheesy sauce with its smokey chipotle vibes and cilantro packed flavors coat ALL your meals this weekend and you will be one VERY happy camper.

Well, maybe not on your Saturday morning pancakes...but hey, after my first encounter with this sauce...I can make no judgements.

Knock your socks off.

Friday + Chipotle Cheese Sauce = win.

Chipotle Cheese Sauce + ________________ ---> mouth.

Chipotle Cheese Sauce

Yep.  It's gonna be a great weekend, folks.

Give yourself the gift of a creamy spicy cheesy covered weekend and make this sauce now.

Ten minutes ago would have been better, actually, because then you could be eating its gloriousness while reading.

Maybe next time 😉

HAPPY FRY-DAY w/ Chipotle Cheese Sauce!

Chipotle Cheese Sauce
Recipe type: Sauce
Serves: 1.3 cups
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 cups milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1 chipotle pepper (in adobo sauce)
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • ¾ cup Extra sharp cheddar (or any stronger variety cheese you like)
  • Salt + Pepper (to taste)
  • ½ tsp garlic salt
  1. Add butter to a sauce pan over a medium heat until melted.
  2. Add minced garlic as well as flour and whisk until butter crumbles appear.
  3. While whisking, slowly add milk until completely incorporated.
  4. Add chopped chipotle pepper, cilantro and seasonings. Allow to simmer about 1-2 minutes until thick and bubbling and then remove from heat.
  5. Stir in cheese and transfer to blender or food processor and pulse until blended.
  6. Serve over, in or under everything.
We like our cheese sauce pretty thick, but if you want a thinner sauce, just add more milk until desired consistency is reached.

After cooling, the sauce will thicken and may need to be heated in the microwave for about 5-10 seconds to be sauce-like again.




Whipped Cilantro & Feta DipHey Y'all! Well isn't that a southern greeting for you...

As promised, I have a quick dip for you to utilize that remaining Cilantro sauce in your fridge from Friday's Salmon. Unless, of course, you loved it so much that you used it for your second batch of Crispy Baked Salmon w/ herb sauce this weekend. In that case, no judgements here, and you can put this recipe in your back pocket for the next time around 😉

Guac Main


I think I just got chills.

Surely everyone gets chills when speaking of avocados, right?  Don’t answer that.

That super yummy pear-shaped fruit of bright-green goodness sitting on my windowsill until ripe perfection just warms my heart.

So much so that I purchase three four six at every grocery run.
