I found this dip that falls somewhere between guacamole and hummus on Pinterest and knew right away that I wanted to try this. We love both and this definitely did not disappoint.

Vegetable side dishes (for me) tend to be after thoughts. I always seem to get into a rut when it comes to them. My go-to sides are usually grilled corn on the cob, squash or zucchini during grilling season and in the winter I usually go with sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts or broccoli.
So one of my 2012 "food resolutions" is to put more thought into sides. As I mentioned yesterday, I recently got Katie Lee Joel's The Comfort Table. The book contains quite a few side dishes that jumped out at me - "Peas with Bacon & Roasted Red Peppers", "Roasted Carrots with Honey & Mint" and "Sesame Corn Saute".

But somehow, standing in line at Homegoods we ended picking up 2 more - Williams-Sonoma's Weeknight Fresh & Fast and Katie Lee Joel's Comfort Table. So, I'm making a conscious effort to make at least a few recipes from these new purchases.

But back in November, my sister was coming in town for The Baby's Baptism and it was also my sister's 27th birthday celebration weekend with my family. I asked her what kind of cake she would like and she said she wanted a cheesecake with either cherry or blueberry topping - cherry being her first choice. Well, much to my dismay, after trips to every grocery store in Richmond (including Whole Foods & Trader Joe's) no one was carrying the cherries I needed. So, blueberry cheesecake it was.

And if you don't particularly love pistachios or you haven't had them, you should still make this dip from Food & Wine. It really is that good.

This recipe is beyond easy to make. I've made it twice within the past week and with a on the move baby at home, I can tell you that whipping up a homemade "snack" requires ease and simplicity.
