Guess what today is?! It’s National Hummus Day! Yes, that’s a thing! An excuse to eat and celebrate the wonderful thing that is hummus all day long. Although, if we’re being honest, I don’t really need an additional excuse to eat hummus all day, every day. I do that already.

What’s even more exciting? I’ve teamed up with Sabra this year as part of their Tastemaker program. In other words, I’ll be bringing you all sorts of tasty dishes, featuring their delectable line of hummus spreads, in the months ahead.

I’ve never worked with a more generous company (I might turn into a chickpea by the time I get through all of the hummus they have sent me!), and it’s partnerships like this that get me really excited, draw upon my creative juices, and get me fired up.

Hummus is quite possibly one of the most versatile spreads out there, and it is rare that a week goes by without me picking up at least one container of it at the store. It’s such a great, healthy snack for when hungry strikes in the afternoon (uhh, this happens every afternoon for me), and is so versatile.

It goes with practically everything, and is naturally gluten-free and vegan, making it the perfect snack to have on hand for parties and entertaining. Plus, have you guys seen the amazing line of hummus flavors that Sabra offers? They have practically every hummus flavor that you could imagine under the sun!

Craving spicy? Try their supremely spicy hummus. Feeling like hummus with a little bit of an Italian twist? Try their basil pesto hummus. As you can imagine, the possibilities are quite endless. However, since it was National Hummus Day, I decided to pair one of Sabra’s new flavors, lemon twist hummus, with something a bit more classic and traditional. 

Homemade falafel! But not just any old falafel…mini falafel bites! On toothpicks! Uhh, hello new favorite appetizer and party snack!

Mini Cornmeal Cakes with Whipped Mascarpone and Fresh Berries. A simple summer dessert that can be prepared in less than 45 minutes!

Growing up (OK, still to this day), my favorite dessert was my mom’s homemade sponge roll cake filled with tons of fresh berries, jam, and lightly sweetened whipped cream. If we were lucky, it would include freshly picked berries from our favorite farm just outside of DC, a day-trip during the summer...
