Long time no see blogosphere! This summer was suuuuuuper busy for yours truly. My main man and the most amazing fiancé in the world moved to California, his younger sister got hitched, my family moved from Germany to Canada, and I passed my dreaded Candidacy Exam and am now officially a PhD candidate…wahoo! It was a wild ride and I am SO pumped to say hello to fall! AND to say HELLO again to all of YOU! As my first recipe for the season I am NOT going to share something pumpkin themed…though I HAVE made pumpkin cinnamon rolls and pumpkin bread already. No, today I am going to share with you an AMAZING and easy hummus recipe that will BLOW YOUR MIND!
I have found that many homemade recipes are lacking in flavor, but not this one! As soon as I tasted it I knew this was a success. My roommate even looked up from the apples she was chopping and asked, “WHAT is that?! That smells amazing!!!” Oh it is…it is amazing! AND it is bright orange so you can still use this recipe to get into the autumn mood. Without further adieu, here is the recipe for super awesome Buffalo Hummus!
