Wow! That’s all I know to say right now! I was a little hesitant last night to click “publish” but I’m so so glad that I did! I just finished reading through all of your comments and I can’t thank you all enough for the huge amount of support I feel right now! I love you guys SO much!
I think for now, I’m just gonna go with the flow and see where it goes….if I feel like posting every day one week and only a few days the next, so be it! Just know that I have absolutely NO intention on quitting blogging for a LONG time! I love it too much!
I have actually been excited all day today to get to this post tonight! I have a little something for you guys…

I made PB&J!
Wait…was that a little anticlimactic? Oh, I’m sorry. Let me try this…
I made PB&J HUMMUS!
Are you still there? I promise it’s absolutely delicious! Remember the disclaimer people!
It all started when I got a craving for one of my childhood favorites for dinner. It is practically impossible for me to sink my teeth into a PB&J without thoughts of bike riding, hide-n-seek, and Saturday morning cartoons. And while I’m totally not against indulging in childhood comfort food, a simple PB&J never really “sticks to my ribs” as my mama would say (Hi, Mom!).
So, how do you make a sandwich that’s filling for a five-year old work for a more grown-up sized hunger? You add beans!
*Don’t be lured into buying cranberry beans for a recipe thinking they are some sort of fancy new and exotic ingredient…they taste like plain.old.pintos! #imnotbitter #ihateyoufoodnetworkmagazine
- 1 cup cooked beans
- 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons of your favorite jam or preserves
- 1-2 tablespoons of water as needed to thin out mixture
Combine all ingredients into a food processor, Magic Bullet, or blender and give it a spin. You will have to stop a few times to scrape down the sides of your mixing vessel…hmm, I like that word…all of a sudden I feel like I’m making hummus on a submarine! 😉
You may remember from this post why I love these little jams so much!
The combinations are pretty much limitless!
But wait just a minute…this isn’t JUST for sandwiches…
They are totally loving their dip in the “hummus hot tub” 😉
Or, if you’re feeling adventurous…
What is one food that when you eat it, you automatically think of your childhood?
