Easy Hummus

I told a couple of my friends that my hummus recipe was on my blog, but… I can’t find it. If I can’t find it, they probably can’t find it. Also, it might not be here at all.

New Years Nibbles

Any reason to have finger food!  I have had a super-bowl party by myself, just to make finger-food.  Going to parties is particularly difficult for those of us with allergies.  Never go to a party hungry because there may not be anything you can eat.  So, I like to have a reason to make a party food spread at home.  Ah, the feeling of knowing that I can eat anything on the table I want!

Party Menu

  1. Chicken fingers
  2. Ranch dip
  3. hummus
  4. pitas
  5. cucumbers and carrots
  6. assorted  olives
  7. queso dip
  8. tortilla chips

I totally cheated with the chicken fingers and bought them from our neighborhood grocery store.  The Ranch Dip I have posted before, but the hummus and cheese sauce recipes I need to write down.  I make both of these things all the time.  They are easy and kid-friendly.
