If you are like me sometimes you just crave good hummus!
Usually I get my husband Dave our grocery shopper to pick up a little tub or two.
My favorite is Crushed Red Pepper Hummus, any brand will do.
What I finally decided is to keep the ingredients on hand for when I what to whip us my own version.
So I took to Pinterest to find these 8 recipes of this delectable treat.
I hope you enjoy making your own hummus.
