It’s no secret that snacking is one of my favorite hobbies (right after tabling and online window shopping!).That’s why I’m super-excited to share this tasty chip and dip combo that’s perfect for when you have the munchies after school. It’s super-easy and cheap to make, and it even has a spicy kick to it. I mean, if that combination doesn’t scream perfection, I don’t know what does!

Try this deelish chipotle hummus! 😀

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
