After making the delicious Sriracha Hummus we decided to try cucumber hummus. It is a toss up on which one is better, they are both really good.
The cucumber hummus was creamier than the Sriracha. I am guessing because of the water from the cucumber. The Flavor God Everything Seasoning in this recipe adds just the right touch!
1 tbls minced garlic
1/4 cup Tahini
2 tbls lemon juice
1 tbls olive oil
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
1 large cucumber chopped
2 tsp Flavor God Everything Seasoning
So simple! Just add all of the ingredients into your food processor and mix until smooth. Taste and add more seasoning if needed. Serve with pita chips or cut up veggies.
Be sure to pin this recipe to your Pinterest recipe board, it is a great party appetizer.
If you haven’t heard of Flavor God seasonings check out their website here. We can’t rave enough about how much we like them.

How about a little hummus with a kick! If you saw our Sriracha Cauliflower Bites recipe the other day, then you know we love Sriracha.
Sriracha Hummus is incredibly good and you can make it with as little or as much spice as you want. Super easy to make and it’s a great appetizer to bring along to any party.
To mix we recommend using the Kitchen Aid small food processor.
1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup Tahini
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cumin
2 Tbsp Sriracha
Start out by draining the can of chickpeas, then add to a food processor along with the olive oil, Tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and cumin. Process until smooth, adding more olive oil as needed.
The original recipe said that you can add 1/4 – 1/2 cup water, but you can add more olive oil for a creamier hummus and that’s what we did.
Add your heat: Start out with 1 Tbsp of Sriracha and taste. Add more to your liking. We like it hot so we added 2 Tbsp.
We served ours with pita chips and baked almond crackers. It was a hit!
What kind of hummus should be make next? Let us know in the comments below.
The original recipe came from Budget Bytes.
I called this recipe Amazing Meatballs because they were just that. We were actually testing a recipe called Best Baked Meatballs and we can’t argue.
We were shocked by how light and delicious they were. To go with the meatballs we made linguine noodles and garlic bread. Next time we are going get some french bread and provolone or fresh mozzarella and make sandwiches.
In your first bowl combine:
1/2 Cup Fresh Ricotta
2 Tbls chopped parsley
1 tablespoon of ground fennel
1 tsp chili pepper flakes
2 tbls oregano
2 cloves of garlic minced
4 tbls of Parmesan cheese
In 2nd bowl:
2 lbs of ground beef 80/20
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp of salt
Preheat oven to 425 and grease your baking dish. After mixing both bowls separately, combine the two and mix gently together.
Roll your meatballs into desired size balls (ours were golf ball size), drizzle with a little olive oil. Place meatballs on baking sheet next to each other.
Bake for 20 minutes then take out and drain extra fat. Spoon your favorite red sauce over each meatball and bake another 15 minutes.
We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
The original recipe came from Chop Happy.
Sriracha Cauliflower Bites Recipe: One word that describes these spicy little nuggets…addicting. Seriously, we couldn’t stop eating them.
A friend recently posted a recipe for Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites and I knew I need to try them. That recipe called for Franks Hot Sauce. My house is all about Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce.
1 large head of cauliflower (break into florets)
1 cup water
1 cup flour
1 tbls. garlic powder
1/2 cup Sriracha Sauce
1 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. You will need a large baking sheet. Even if you use a non-stick pan you should still lightly spray with cooking oil.
In a medium size bowl combine flour, garlic powder and water. Whisk until completely mixed together.
Place you florets in the flour mixture and coat thoroughly. Once coated place on baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes.
In a small bowl combine the melted butter and Sriracha sauce together.
At the 20 minutes mark pour the hot sauce mixture over the cauliflower. I used a basting brush and brushed the hot sauce on. I did this so that I could make some that would be less spicy for my daughter. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
These are crazy good! We served them with celery, blue cheese dressing and ranch dressing. We can’t wait to make them as an appetizer for when we have friends over.
We are looking for more cauliflower recipes. If you have a good one you think we should try please let us know in the comments below.
This banana oatmeal cookie recipe tastes too good to be healthy, but it is. Using only 4 ingredients makes for a quick and easy healthy treat.
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup Quick or Instant Oats
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Drop a spoonful of dough onto your cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.
The recipe we found didn’t call for putting them in the refrigerator, but we put them in and think they taste better cold.
I would say that eating one is all you need. The sweetness from the banana and dark chocolate really feels like you are indulging.
Our batch made 20 cookies.
This morning we had planned on doing a review video with our GoPro Hero 3 until we went to charge it and there was no red light for the charge. We completely switched gears and ended up doing a hack video for our GoPro Hero 3.
No matter what we did we couldn’t get a charge. We turned to our good friend Google to find a quick fix and it worked. Check out our how-to video below.
Do you have something that just up and stopped working? Let us know below and we will try and help you find a quick fix.

If you have gotten this error (above) while trying to make a cup of coffee, watch our video below for the easy fix solution:

When it comes to steaks, a nice thick ribeye would be my steak of choice. Words can’t express how delicious and satisfying this salad was.
Large Bag of Fresh Spinach
2 Ripe Avocados (slice into thin strips)
1 Small Red Onion (thinly sliced)
1 Container of Cherry Tomatoes (quartered)
Crumble Blue Cheese
1 Small Bag Frozen Sweet Corn
2 Ribeye Steaks
You will need two cast iron skillets. In the first skillet turn heat to medium high. Pour your frozen sweet corn in a small bowl and lightly coat with grape seed oil and sea salt. Once you cast iron pan is hot pour in corn. Let it cook through and get golden to get that roasting effect. If it was summer we would put a couple cobs of corn right on the grill to roast.
In second cast iron skillet turn on high heat to get the pan very hot. Lightly coat your ribeyes with grape seed oil and seasonings and place in hot skillet. We seared our steaks for 3 minutes on each side and then took them out of the pan to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. We enjoy medium-rare.
Slice avocados, red onions and cherry tomatoes. Wash and dry your spinach leaves. Go ahead and get your plates set-up. Layer whatever way you want. You can get them assembled and add your steak once done.
We used crumbled blue cheese for our dressing. If you wish to use a dressing you will only need to drizzle a small amount, this salad is packed with big flavors.
We hope you enjoy this as much as we did. Very satisfying – eating healthy is fun!

Our latest crocheting project is 100% cotton washcloths that are super easy to make. We have already started making gifts for next Christmas.
You will need 100% cotton yarn – we used Peaches & Creme brand, an I hook 5.00 mm, scissors and a yarn needle. For our washcloths we wanted them a bit longer so we went with 22 rows. You are free to make them as short or long as you would like.
Have fun and if you decided to crochet a washcloth please take a photo and post it on Weve Tried It Facebook page.
Don’t forget to share this video with your crocheting friends!
