Easter Eats

Mr. BB30 and I enjoyed a quiet Easter at home. We made brunch....
Berry and Oatmeal Bliss
 Mr. BB30 made a festive vegan dinner including a corn "ceviche"....
Corn, roasted red bell pepper, roasted jalapeno, salt, lime juice.
I decided I wanted to make dessert. I turned to my girls at The Post Punk Kitchen, and the choice was easy: Key Lime Pie. Perfect for a spring feast. Also, Mr. BB30 had never had it before. It turned out really well. The fresh lime was so vibrant! I used a pre-made graham cracker crust. I am absolutely making this pie again. Click here for the recipe. My picture does it no justice. Make this!!

Simple, Fresh, Divine

A couple of weekends ago I was on the run and stopped home briefly. I knew I'd be making a substantial dinner later that night, but I needed a good snack to tide me over. I put together a little salad that was surprisingly refreshing and simple...too simple to even call it a recipe...but share-worthy nonetheless.

I threw together chick peas, defrosted frozen peas, cucumbers, black beans, and roasted peppers. I tossed it in some olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, a little garlic powder, and a dash of lemon juice. Such a refreshing, colorful rejuvenating snack! I would totally bring this to a picnic. On top of some whole wheat pasta, couscous, or quinoa? Heck yes!
Have you thrown together any surprise simple treats lately?
