With all of the baking (and taste testing) going on around here this month, it is good to have some healthy options available.
One of my favorite snacks is homemade hummus.
It is so easy to make (your food processor does the work) and always turns out fresh and amazing.
Perfect for dipping veggies, crackers,
your finger or pita.
