Second Header(2)


One more exam until thanksgiving! So excited for the holidays, not so excited about the $$$ tickets to fly back to LA. Which is why I will spend thanksgiving in Richmond staring at pictures of cats. Although, I will be able to commiserate with my roommate and other desolate Cali people and have a friendsgiving away from home. Yay!

Anyhoo, I finally coughed up the money to buy tahini. I don't get why it's so expensive and why it's such an essential ingredient in hummus! Gad, it imparts such a deep and yummy flavor. I tried making hummus without it and just threw in some sesame oil. Needless to say, it wasn't the same :(

This recipe adds olive oil only when you're ready to serve it. Which apparently is the way to make it and it is super super smooth. Enjoy~
