Mom's are always running, am I right? And when you hit menopause, you're running hot and cold!
So welcome to Hot and Cold Running Mom...where you'll find mostly easy recipes (because who has time for complicated ones!), helpful household hints and a few crafts.
Note: NOT just for Menopausal Moms!
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Chickpea Meatless Meatballs
Healthy, economical and tasty!
540 ml can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup edamame beans
1 roasted sweet pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup shredded onion
2 tsp dry oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3/4 cup bread crumbs
Put the chickpeas, edamame beans and roasted pepper in the food processor. I used frozen edamame, there's still a little frost on them. And you can use store bought roasted peppers or use the link at the end of this recipe to make your own. It's easy!
Pulse a few times to combine. You don't want a purée.
In a bowl combine the chickpea mixture with the remaining ingredients and form into 2 tablespoon-sized balls.
Place them on a lined baking sheet and bake at 350 F for 15-20 minutes.
