I'm going to dive right into the main topic of this post: green deliciousness. You know I love sweet and savory, naughty and healthy. I'm an all-encompassing food girl. There are weeks when I prefer one taste over the other and this week I have been CRAVING greens. On our sad ride home from our kid-free overnight date Sunday morning, Dan and I agreed that something healthy, green and zingy needed to be created in our kitchen asap. I started with our favorite Hummus recipe as a base and added some spice and green goodness.

If you prefer a less spicy hummus, feel free to omit the garlic and Cayenne pepper. This stuff is ridiculous, you guys. It is insanely addicting.

We dipped veggies and crackers in it and I'm surprised there was any left. Thankfully...there WAS! So for the past two days I have added it to my salads. Today I will be slathering it all over the inside of my chicken wrap. That's right. I'm in love.
