Ugh. I hate computer problems don’t you?

I had intended this post to be my #strangebutgood post, but along with photo upload problems, and having a random meet up with Matt for National Taco Day, things got a bit delayed.


It started off pretty innocent. A local taco stand near their work had a free taco special. A beer seemed necessary as well.

(side note: pineapple on a taco is the best idea ever)

And since Matt has basically the best job ever, and they frequently have beer in their work fridge, going back to the office with him to have another beer seemed like a good idea.

Yup, so my day got a bit distracted.

(the new car racing arcade games they just got in the office didn’t help either. did i mention matt has the best job ever?)

Once arriving home it was lunch time. I already had in mind a plan to incorporate one of my newest obsessions.

I’m pretty well known for my obsession with spreads and dips. I really think I come up with a new one weekly.

In wanting to whip up a batch of my banana bread hummus, this time I knew I wanted to add the CoCoCardio to the mix.

Thus a wonderful new hummus was created.

Red Velvet Hummus

I pretty much followed the recipe for my chocolate peanut butter hummus, but in place of the cocoa I added the CoCoCardio.

It turned out amazing.

I didn’t measure exactly, but here is the jist of went into this.


– 1 can rinsed garbanzo beans

– ~ 2 tbsp peanut flour

– 1 scoop CoCoCardio

– 5-8 drops vanilla stevia

– sprinkle of cinnamon

– Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend.

– Add water, almond milk or coconut oil to thin. (I use a mix of almond milk and coconut oil)

I could seriously eat this stuff by the spoonful. And I might have.


You know what else I hate? Making an amazing new recipe, not taking pictures (because you had more important things to do, like eat the food), make it again for the purpose of taking pictures, and the end product being so not photogenic (but still delicious).

So I do have another new recipe coming your way, I just have to make it again and try to get good pictures this time.

Life is hard I know.

Well loves, be on the look out for that and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

What do you do when your food isn’t photogenic but you want to post a recipe? Post the pictures anyways? Or wait until to get good pictures?
