My hope is to inspire you to get in the kitchen and have an adventure. Make something you have never tried before.  Push yourself to make something you have always been intimidated to make but most importantly to have fun and make memories!

Classic Hummus Dip

The Holiday Season is quickly approaching!  It’s a time for gathering with friends and family to catch up on the year’s events.  We always have multiple gathering to attend.  Usually there is some sort of work gathering, a gathering with close friends, and of course, a family gathering.  I get our really close friends together at our house between Christmas and New Years for a nice dinner.  Since the gathering is so small, I make it a little fancy.  I like to pull out my “good” dishes and glasses.  This is most certainly my favorite time of year.  I get to see the people I care about most even if this is the only time of the year our busy schedule allows, and I cherish it greatly!  No matter what type of gathering you plan to attend this year, this recipe is sure to be hit!
