Roasted Garlic Hummus

Roasted Garlic Hummus is a vegan, gluten free dip that’s healthy and packed with flavor. As much as I hate to admit it, I’m really not into football.  Well, actually, it’s not just limited to football, all sports (except triathlon) are kind of  lost on me.  I wish I could get into it, but I (now […]
