Favourite Snack: Tandoori Masala Roasted Chickpeas

photo 1 This is a great snack that I usually make once a week, and bring in my lunch.

They don't take much effort to make at all, just a little bake time. You can literally exchange any of the spices for something you like better; like garlic/chive/dill, cilantro/lime, sea salt and pepper, and so on. Many people do sweeter versions with cinnamon and sugar...so there are endless combinations. The process is the same for each.

Find the recipe here, and enjoy!

Healthy Movie-Night Snack Options?

I'm looking for some feedback here people! I love going to the movies, but mostly for the popcorn and loads of Bulk Barn items I sneak in. I'm going to see This is the End tonight, and I'm trying to come up with something to pretty clean to snack on. What do you bring?

So far I've come up with: Fruit Salad, Almonds, Veg + yogurt dip

If this sounds risky to bring in, they're pretty easy-going at the theatre I go to. Note to self: must remind female friend to bring large purse...

While trying to come up with the dip recipe on one of my favourite food sites TheKitchn, I also came across these Roasted Chickpea recipes. I really wish I had more time tonight to make these before I go. Next time, next time....

Oh, and why is TheKitchn one of my favourites? This is why...

That's right, a 7-Layer cake composed of brownie, chocolate chip cookie, marshmallow fluff, cheesecake, graham cracker and chocolate frosting. We made this for Christmas Dinner Last year. (Recipe: http://www.thekitchn.com/over-the-top-dessert-7-layer-smores-cake-179471)
