Greek Seven Layer Dip

Greek seven layer dip

You know those occasions where you volunteer to bring an appetizer then find yourself too busy to make anything so you end up bringing baby carrots with a tub of hummus?

This dip is for those.

Greek Seven Layer Dip – a.k.a. hummus with Mediterranean-inspired toppings – is nearly as easy and fast as the carrots + hummus route but with so much more crowd appeal. In fact, people go so crazy for this dip you may even look like a culinary genius!

Greek Seven Layer Dip

Perfect for Memorial Day BBQs, summer picnics, or even a last-minute dinner, this colorful and nutritious dip hits the spot. I love serving it with pita bread and more veggies for dipping, and if you add grilled chicken or stuffed grape leaves it quickly becomes a healthy and complete meal.

Greek Seven Layer Dip

Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

So I’m constantly seeking out healthier versions of frozen treats — and inventing my own — that allow us to indulge a little more wisely.… Continue Reading

Lemon Cupcakes and Thoughts on Eating “In the Middle”

Lemon Cupcakes and Thoughts on Eating “In the Middle”

I’ve always loved food, but until about 13 years ago, I spent more time stressing about food than I did actually enjoying it. Throughout my teens and early twenties, I was constantly thinking about what I should eat, had eaten, or was going to eat later.  Like many women, I tried all sorts of diets and self-imposed eating restrictions in an attempt to… Continue Reading

Hemp Seed Pesto and Easy Tortilla Pizza

If you’d have served me Hemp Seed Pesto a decade ago, I’d have thought you were crazy.
