Ash made something crazy this week. I’m trying to decide whether to make some tonight or wait until I get to try hers this weekend. Tonight might win.

Roasted Walnut & Garlic Hummus

This weekend, Ashley and I skipped our collaborative hummus-making date for a hummus-related field trip: the Toronto Garlic Festival! Because really, what’s hummus without garlic?
