The fatigue that comes along with being pregnant is no joke. I almost don’t want to venture into the kitchen because the thought of cooking anything worth eating would take too long. And I definitely don’t want to be standing there on my swollen feet for an hour or two.
Since I’m now a huge fan of the ‘quick & easy’ recipe, these Southwest Black Bean Hummus Wraps are a dream come true! Their main ingredient is BUSH’S new ‘Hummus Made Easy’ and with just one pouch and a can of BUSH’S Beans, you’ve got delicious, homemade hummus on hand in less than two minutes!
The variety featured in these wraps is BUSH’S Southwest Black Bean. It’s the perfect blend of tahini, olive oil and bold, southwest spices. And when blended with a can of rinsed and drained BUSH’S Black Beans, you get a spicy little kick with each bite. The wraps are filled with warm chicken, colorful pico de gallo and creamy cheese. Refreshing and filling, all in one!
Available at Walmart, BUSH’S Hummus Made Easy is simple, yet the quality is on point. All three yummy flavors are preservative-free, plus you can dress them up with all kinds of extra ingredients. And because they’re so easy to whip up, they’re wonderful for an after-school snack or last-minute guests!
1 pkg BUSH'S Southwest Black Bean Hummus Made Easy
1 (15 oz) can BUSH'S Black Beans, drained and rinsed
4 lg spinach tortillas
3 c shredded, cooked chicken
2 c pico de gallo
1-1/2 c shredded, Fiesta Blend cheese
Following the directions on the package of Hummus Made Easy, blend together the hummus mix and can of beans until it reaches your desired consistency.
Spread tortillas with hummus, leaving a 2-inch border. In center of wraps, layer equal amounts of hummus, shredded chicken, pico de gallo and cheese. For each wrap, fold two sides of wrap over filling, then roll tightly, ending seam side down. Cut in half and serve!

When OXO asked if I’d create a bowl filled with fresh inspiration, I knew it’d be one featuring venison. Chris shot a beauty this past Fall and we’ve reaped the benefits ever since with a freezer full of meat. So, when a happy package filled with new tools arrived on my doorstep, I couldn’t wait to test them out!
The Ground Meat Chopper & Turner has three wide blades to help chop & stir ingredients without having anything get stuck in between. It’s silicone edge is great for scraping the sides of the pan without scratching your cookware and transferring food when it’s ready is a breeze. It breaks up ground meat perfectly!
Since I started MBH back in 2008, I’ve tried my fair share of choppers. But with OXO’s Vegetable Chopper with Easy Pour Opening, I’ve found the perfect one. It quickly and safely chops veggies and fruits in one easy motion. With the back opening, you can easily pour the contents out without removing the lid. The stainless steel blade pattern and recessed cutting area keeps food in place while the lid provides leverage for efficient chopping. And I love the removable grid that helps clean between the teeth of the chopper. No more spending half an hour removing onion peels with a toothpick!
Their Silicone Ladle is a new favorite of mine, as well. It’s ideal for stirring and serving soups and sauces, of course; but the beauty is in the combined heat resistance and non-stick genius with flexible edges. They’re designed to easily scrape contents from pots and pans for efficient serving and clean-up and they do just that!
We love serving this Black Bean Venison Chili “bar-style” when having friends and family over. All taste buds are satisfied when everyone can create their own bowl. There are rarely leftovers, but when there are, this makes for a great lunch the next day!
Brown ground venison in stockpot over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until venison is no longer pink, breaking up into 3/4-inch crumbles. Remove from stockpot with slotted spoon. Set aside and pour off drippings. Heat oil in same stockpot over medium heat until hot. Add onions and garlic; cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or until onions are tender.
Return venison to stockpot. Add chili powder, cumin, oregano and thyme; cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in diced tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes. Uncover stockpot; continue simmering 5 to 10 minutes more, or until thickened to desired consistency, stirring occasionally. Stir in beans; cook 5 to 10 minutes or until beans are heated through. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired. Garnish with toppings from your Chili Bar, if desired.
We were so excited to hear that we’d be hosting another #DisneyKids Playdate… one that would take us to all four parks of Walt Disney World Resort! Last February, we celebrated our #DisneySide with an @Home Celebration and this year, we added a little Disney magic to our family Easter Egg Hunt! We donned Sofia […]
First trimester fatigue is legit, y’all. If you didn’t catch our announcement on Instagram, then welcome to the party! That’s right, C and I are expecting twins! And from the moment we found out (quite possibly a few weeks before then, too), I’ve been a complete zombie. Anything involving activity outside of laying in bed […]
I have fond memories when it comes to Ball brand jars. My grandmother used them when canning jams and jellies, storing leftover sauces and of course, Momma G’s been drinking tea from them since I was crawling. So, I was extremely excited when Stonyfield partnered with Ball Canning for a “New Year on the go” […]

Time seems to be passing with warp speed these days, so naturally, it’s time for another Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! I’ve been a fan of this super fun event since the beginning and each year, it continues to be amazing. Because of the continued and meticulous organizational skills of Lindsay from Love & Olive […]
The OXO On Illuminating Digital Hand Mixer is a thing of beauty. I’ve been excited about OXO’s new line of small appliances, so when they asked if I’d like to test out the Hand Mixer, I couldn’t say ‘yes’ fast enough. Included in the box is a set of balloon-shaped beaters, a set of dough […]
With demanding work schedules and picky taste buds, Chris and I are always playing “I don’t know, what do you want?” when it comes to deciding on weeknight dinners. We’re big fans of Chinese takeout, but spending close to $40 for two small entrees and couple of egg rolls is ridiculous. Thankfully, I ran across […]
I will forever declare my love for all things pumpkin… creamy lattes, sweet-smelling candles and fresh-from-the-oven baked goods. The national pumpkin craze may have lost its shine, but in my house, it’s full-steam ahead! And this Pumpkin Bread Pudding? It’s no exception. Instead of milk, cream or half & half, I subbed Stonyfield’s Smooth & […]
