  3. Kind of looks like mashed potatoes to me! Lol
    I've never really had hummus before, so I couldn't tell you if I'd like it or not-Maybe I'll try it soon :)

  4. This sounds pretty good. Sadly, I haven't had good experiences soaking my own beans. Tried to make baked beans from scratch - must have left the beans in the water too long...

  5. Your recipe looks really good and would make a healthy snack.

  7. That looks so good! My brother makes homemade hummus, I'll have to ask him to make this for me next time he visits. I'm terrible in the kitchen.
