Homemade Spicy Hummus

Homemade hummus is a bold investment. A jar of tahini isn’t cheap, a ~15 oz. jar is around $6. BUT once you’ve invested in that jar, hummus is just a few small steps away! (You can get +15 servings of hummus for one jar of tahini) Overall you can save if you home make your hummus. Plus if you’re like me and Mike, you don’t like/always want the same flavors. So homemaking hummus let’s you control the amount you make. No more wasting hummus or eats flavors you don’t love!

Guacamole

IMG_20150807_193933Guacamole is my go-to when I need a party dish.
It’s always a hit, and I always get my bowl back.
It’s also my go-to snack when we actually have avocadoes in the house.
This recipe is single serving, if you eat it as a meal (normal), or you can share (abnormal) with maybe one other person as a snack, if that person is nice, and you feel like sharing.
One thing I absolutely love about guac is that it is so fresh and healthy, while being a satisfying and filling snack.
The tomatoes for this one came from my garden! Which is finally producing things besides mountains of kale.
Also, side note, I like my guac chunky. If chunky guac isn’t your style then this recipe isn’t really for you.
Horticulture/History lesson: All Hass avocado trees are grown from seedlings grafted from the same single tree that was planted in 1926.
