We Can't Stop Making This Snack

I was thinking the other day about what the ratio is of Pinterest recipes I try to Pinterest recipes I like. And it's probably pretty low. So, when I find a winner I want to shout it from the rooftops. Which is kind of what this blog is--a virtual rooftop :-) These are crackers that Nikki makes a lot, and has brought in to share with me a couple of times. They are really good and they satisfy that need for something salty and crunchy in a way that's pretty darn healthy. The recipe is a slightly modified version of one from Nutritious.com.

Preheat oven to 300-degrees.

Combine all ingredients and let them soak for at least 30-minutes.

Recipes You Must Try!

Hi all! We've been cooking up a storm lately and have some new recipes to recommend. These are easy and delicious and healthy. Nope, those things aren't mutually exclusive, we swear :-) What follows is proof. 

These Berry Streusel Bars from Happy Go Lucky blog. As an aside, the berry topping on these would be really good on the Chocolate Fudge Avocado Cake we posted in our April Favorites post...

Egg Muffins from Two Peas and Their Pod. These are like omelets in a muffin tin. You can use any fillings you like. Nikki didn't use the exact ingredients in this recipe, but followed the cooking instructions. You can do the same.

Salsa Fresca Chicken from Easy Family Recipes. Nikki suggests salting your chicken the night before. It prevents it from drying out. 

Greek Yogurt Blueberry Pancakes from Ambitious Kitchen. A quick note on these: check the labels on your Greek yogurt. Some are really low in protein and high in sugar. You want the reverse. We like the Fred Meyer brand, but I'm sure there are others that are good too.

Cauliflower Fried Rice from The Recipe Critic. You can save yourself some time on this one if you purchase already riced cauliflower. Trader Joe's sells it, so do many other stores. 

Seed Crackers from Quite Good Food. A really good substitute for chips when you need something salty and crunchy.

Strawberry Chia Seed Jam from the Gluten-Free Vegan Pantry. Super easy. No pectin or gelatin required. 

Coconut Rice with Pineapple and Cashews from Carlsbad Cravings. This one I made often a while back and then kind of rediscovered it recently. It's delicious. 

Chocolate Strawberry Oatmeal from Bakerita. 

Let us know if you try any of them and if you do, what you thought!
