Ivy City Blues

On a hot, summer days, sometimes even I don’t want whiskey. When that happens, my typical go-to spirit is gin. Today was no exception.

This cocktail is light and refreshing with a hint of fruit from the muddled blueberries, perfect after a long day. Enjoy.

Even better (if slightly more complicated) hummus

You may have read (or even made?) my recipe for Easy Homemade Hummus. If you have, you think/know that it’s pretty good. I’m a perfectionist, though, so I haven’t stopped experimenting (a.k.a. fucking around). As a result, I have a new and improved recipe!

FYI, this latest/final recipe is still tahini-free, but even tastier. Full disclosure: It is is slightly more complicated than the last in that it involves one or two more ingredients. But, in my humble opinion,  it’s infinitely better, and the prep time is arguably lower, as you don’t need to reserve any liquid from the chickpeas. That has to count for something, right?

If you want to say “goodbye forever” to Sabra or Trader Joe’s overpriced tubs, this is your recipe. For under $1.00 and 10 minutes of your time, you can have a pound of delicious, homemade hummus that will pair perfectly with your gut-widening chip of choice.

Enjoy!
