Quick and Smooth Hummus | @thefauxmartha

I first started eating hummus in college while I was trying to tighten up my diet. Though, I had no real concept of the stuff other than it was the dip that tricked me into eating those overly dense “baby” carrots. Back then, I couldn’t have told you that hummus came from chickpeas. Or was it garbanzo beans? No, hominy. Hummus came from hominy. Those cans all sat side-by-side at Walmart, the only place to shop in my small college town, so it was no wonder I was confused.  Read more

Blender Dutch Baby | @thefauxmartha

“Dutch baby”. It’s kind of  a silly name for a breakfast item (which may be why it’s also known as a German Pancake). Yet, somewhere wedged in between the American pancake and the French crêpe sits this delicious Dutch breakfast delicacy. We consider the Dutch baby our second favorite baby, after Hallie of course (who is not Dutch in any way). And almost every Sunday morning when I have time to make breakfast, Hallie’s first request will be “Dutch Baby”. The blender Dutch baby takes some time and patience to perfect, but it’s really quite simple and quick to make once you get the hang of it.  Read more

My Smoothie King days taught me more than just how to make a good smoothie. They taught me how to clean a blender like a pro. (Adding that one to my resume.) Just after using your blender, lightly rinse with water. Fill basin about a quarter of the way full with hot water and a squirt of soap. Secure lid and blend on high for about 30 seconds. The soap and the steam will do the work. Rinse. Repeat as needed.
