Cinnamon and Honey Roasted Chickpeas #SecretRecipeClub

Chickpeas that are roasted to crispy cinnamon-honey spiced perfection. Crunchy, sweet, and oh so irresistible!


It's time for another delicious addition of the Secret Recipe Club, where a group of us are assigned a fellow members blog in secret, and we get to stalk their recipe index, and try out new recipes. I'm excited with who I was paired with this month, because I recently got to make a recipe from her blog for a Picnic/BBQ themed reveal, this Mexican Street Corn Salad, and had several more of her recipes pinned for the future. Well that day is here, and I get to share another recipe I made from So You Think You Can Cook.

I spent quite a bit of time browsing her recipe index again, and found even more recipes I wanted to make, like these Cherry Cabernet Cheeseburgers, and Kale Soup. I decided on her Cinnamon and Honey Roasted Chickpeas though. I've been experimenting with aquafaba a lot lately, which is the liquid from a can of chickpeas. Well, once you use that liquid you still have chickpeas left, and since one can only eat so much hummus, I jumped at the chance to make something new with them. (I have my hummus recipe coming to the blog soon too).

Ambrosia Salad #SundaySupper

Ambrosia Salad is an old-fashioned fruit salad that has stood the test of time. It's a hit with adults and kids alike, and is the perfect dish for potlucks and BBQ's.


Nothing brings back more cherished memories, than our favorite foods from our childhood. So this week as we roll into the lazy days of summer, the #SundaySupper tastemakers are conjuring up the past, with recipes that remind us of the carefree summer days of our childhood. A big thank you goes out to our amazing host, Coleen of The Redhead Baker, who made this event happen!

Fish and Chips #FishFridayFoodies

Crispy, crunchy Fish and Chips, without any gluten or eggs. Yes it is possible!


Fish and Chips used to be one of my favorite meals from my childhood. But it wasn't the fish my mom would fry up after a fishing trip that I remember best. While that fish was tasty, it paled in comparison to the occasional trip to Long John Silvers my parents would treat my sister and I to. I loved that batter coated fish, along with those little crispy pieces in the bottom of the tray.

Sadly I can't eat at LJS anymore due to becoming gluten intolerant. So what's a girl to do? You guessed it, get in the kitchen and come up with my own tasty, gluten free version of course.
