Lemon Pepper Hummus and Fries

No need to buy grocery store hummus anymore because I’m presenting you with the best tasting hummus you’ll ever grace your taste buds with. When I first entered the world of hummus I didn’t even realize that I could make my own. Common knowledge; I know, I know. Once I finally found out I saw it as my responsibility to create the best hummus to share with all of you! My favorite thing to pair with it is sweet potato fries, so that is a bonus recipe today. Get excited!
It’s here just in time for Super Bowl Sunday! How many of you are having a party this Sunday? I don’t know what I’ll be doing because I’ll be in NYC until Sunday afternoon, so I may be driving during the beginning of the game. We shall see. But regardless, I want you all to be prepared to stun your guests with nothing but the best (rhyming ha ha) and that’s what all of this weeks recipes will help you do!
