Thanks for bringing back some memories and your dip looks wonderful. Reply Oh my god this is the most adorable post everrrrr. You had some seriously stylin’ hair back then, 9th grade me is jealous. I added a little cayenne, some paprika and celery seed. I have a sailboat and we do tours around the Gulf of Papagayo off the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica and our full day tours involve a BBQ lunch on a private beach somewhere.Peace and Raw Health, Elizabeth Reply What a great story, and I think you definitely have that “starstruck” look in your photo :-) Your dip looks so delicious and I love that it comes together so simply with ingredients I usually have on hand, I can’t wait to try it. I can imagine sitting on a couch, a good book (like yourself) shoveling chili filled chip after chili filled chip into my mouth and feeling good about it. Oh, right, and the bean dip looks amazing too :) Reply I just wanted to say that your website is the one I come to every month to look for recipes for the vegan potluck I go to. I cannot even tell you how many people email me after the tours and ask me for the black bean recipe, including today!I just HAD to say something today – That’s the cutest story of you and Eric meeting!!! Reply As someone who also married their high school sweetheart, I loved this story! This little lifestory is wonderful :) Thank you for sharing it, sooooo romantic!We also first met each other after our friends told each other about how we thought the other was cute. Love your story…It’s always funny to reflect on what was once awkward or just plain ol’ embarrassing… Reply I love your story….brings back sooooo many memories. We went to rival high schools and he was the star football player/all around jock-good-at-every-sport type of guy. kind regards Reply I just discovered this blog a few weeks ago…Angela, your recipes are fabulous!Reply This dip is surely going to be served during our super bowl viewing! Just chopped me a bunch of cilantro and I am in heaven. I always find it curious that I could be vegan and obsessed with vampire books, shows and movies. Reply Woot, what a great recipe to serve at my Super Bowl party! I seem to make the same boring dips every year, but I totally like the idea of this one because it combines all my favorites. I do love superbowl food but I will be curled up in a blanket working on my thesis this weekend and maybe I’ll take a break to watch half-time. What type of chip do you recommend serving with it? I think making fun vegan sporty guy food is so fun because people have NO idea when they are eating it that its vegan! I don’t think I can make it since I’m not a football fan or going to a superbowl party… A bean dip like this would be the only thing interesting for me at a Super Bowl party ;) Reply Hi Angela, What a sweet story! It makes perfect sense because I love dipping my tortilla chips into chilli…but I had never considered actually just making a dip out of it! This is the perfect meal for me right now as it’s budget friendly, and seeing as I’m pretty much poor I’d like to say a big THANK-YOU! I have a feeling I could make a dinner out of this.partially because I still don’t even know when the game is! :-) ~Emily~ Reply Oh my goodness- what a cute story!! :) The dip looks really good- I might just have to make it on Sunday! ;) Reply Well, with jalapeno, onion and garlic leading the charge in this chili dip, it’s best to be pursuing a flame from the safety of a sideline so no matter how loud you cheer, you won’t be penalized!
” will have to continue later, because Edward has arrived.We dated for 7 years–had to get the high school and college out of the way, and now we have been married for 22 years!! The only thing I hate is the little jelly like balls from the chia seeds that I keep finding in the cracks of my teeth!! I guess no one noticed the veggie burger that I snuck onto the grill.I never have understood football and I was a cheerleader for 6 years–pretty pathetic!! Anyway, I wanted to make the Black Bean Chili dip but I just couldn’t do it without my cilantro! So I made your endurance crackers and THEY ROCK!!!! Thank you, and I can’t wait to buy your cookbook when it comes out! Just wanted to let you know that I serve this bean dip recipe on our full day sailing excursions down in Costa Rica. I love this adorable confessional post – that brought back wonderful memories of the now long lost (where did 10 years go) sometimes (but not always) missed time… Congrautaltions on such a long lasting relationship!Not always easy, but ultimately so rewarding – CLEARLY you guys ahve a great thing going!! And isn’t it funny what we would do for boys or just to impress other girls back in junior high and h.s.
