No Potato Salad

We had ribs the other night. Yum. Have I ever shared about my absolute knock-you me-off-your my-feet love for ribs? No? Well, there it is. A near obsession it’s so bad. Plus, it’s of the pork family which is the … Continue reading

Sweet Potato Hummus

Yum. It was so simple. I was making hummus. Yes, again. The typical jar of originally-purchased-but-soaked-and-simmered-chickpeas (approx 500mL) including some liquid. A couple swivels of EVOO, a quarter cup of lemon juice, a couple pinches of salt, a couple tablespoons … Continue reading
