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!

VEGAN DONUTS

 

I really think that’s all the introduction needed.

 

Science fact: Donut dough rheology is an important property that impacts the overall donut quality. This property measures the ability of the dough to flow. It can be represented by the power law equation: τ=k.D^n where τ is the tangentic stress, k is the viscosity coefficient, D is the shear rate, and n is the flow index. Many factors affect dough rheology including the type of ingredients, the amount of the ingredients, or the force applied during mixing. Dough is usually described as a viscoelastic material, meaning that its rheology depends on both the viscosity and the elasticity. The viscosity coefficient and the flow index are unique to the type of dough being analyzed, while the tangentic stress and the shear rate are measurements obtained depending on the type force being applied to the dough. #nerds
