We’re here to tell you today that we have not fallen off the face of the planet- we’ve just been extra busy over the past week and have had no time for blogging! In fact, we have barely even been on our computers, which is pretty outrageous for us because ordinarily we spend quite a bit of time on them!
We have been enjoying our Christmas holidays so much over the past week spending as much time as we can with our family who have come to visit from out west and New York that we have hardly even been in the kitchen! (gasp!)
And since today’s their last full day here, we are only stopping in briefly so you don’t think we’ve abandoned you forever.
So we’d like to ask you, what do you make when you have family coming and going constantly, have no time to cook (or plan) elaborate meals, and you just need quick easy snacks/munchies that everyone c will enjoy?
You should all know by now that we are basically obsessed with hummus, and are constantly coming up with more ideas for new versions and flavours. Today’s is the sun-dried tomato addition, but you can check out our recipe page for
a million a few other recipes for some different variations on our favourite dip 🙂
Sun-dried Tomato Hummus

2 cups cooked chickpeas
1/3 c. sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil) blotted dry
