Apple Pie Hummus


Oh yes, you read that right - Apple Pie Humus! I was inspired to make this delicious creation by the tasty Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips that I kept seeing at the store. Although I wanted to buy a bag to just stuff my face with, I knew that wasn't an actual valid reason to buy a bag... But now I've got myself a reason - to pair with this Apple Pie Hummus! Made with Easy-As-Pie Apple Pie Filling, this Apple Pie Hummus is a breeze to make and has all the flavors that we love in Apple Pie. It's almost hard to believe that there is a can of garbanzo beans in this dip - it tastes like an apple-y dessert that was made just for springtime. Is dessert hummus even a thing? If there wasn't before, I'm thinking this Apple Pie Hummus could certainly qualify for the job now!

Bruschetta Chicken Kabobs + a Char-Broil Kettleman™ Grill

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Char-Broil for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


Grilling season is here and I couldn't be happier about it! I grill year-long, but there is something special about Spring and Summertime that you don't get in the winter months. From the long days to the sounds of kids giggling while running through the sprinkler, it's just the feel of this special time of year that I love. This year I am even more excited for the warm season because have a new addition to our backyard - Char-Broil's new Kettleman™ TRU-Infrared™ 22.5" Charcoal Grill! It's been years since I've grilled on a charcoal grill and I was totally excited about getting back in the saddle with this Char-Broil beauty. I've been using a propane gas grill and although it is a breeze to just push a button and get started there is something so much more satisfying about firing up those charcoal briquettes myself and preparing the grill for cooking. It's a hands-on process that is oh-so gratifying!

Perfect Popcorn for His + Hers Movie Night

These delicious recipes for Lemon Cheesecake Popcorn and BBQ Bacon Popcorn have been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PopIntoSAMS #CollectiveBias

Sometimes the best way to reconnect with your significant other is to just snuggle up on the couch, watch a movie {or two} and share a bowl of popcorn {or two}. That's usually the date-night of choice for my husband and I - it's easy, inexpensive and doesn't involve finding a sitter for the kids. I recently decided to jazz up our movie night routine and make each one of us our own special popcorn. I tried to come up with popcorn flavors that would be a good match to our favorite movie genres and I think it was a great success! We paired BBQ Bacon Popcorn with my husband's action/adventure movie choice and Lemon Cheesecake Popcorn with a chick flick I had picked out.
