Hi my faithful dear readers!!

Something new and a recipe!

Where did you eat dinner this week? Post a pic! Here is where my husband and I ate dinner on our date last night – at a gazebo in a park.

Gazebo dinner

This is the best hummus I have ever eaten, ever!! A special thanks to my husband’s aunt Patricia for her recipe ideas.

Roasted red pepper hummus


Author: Moira, Savvy Food Mama

Recipe Type: Snack


  • 1 red pepper, with the stem and seeds cut out, chopped into quarters
  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 Tbs. Tahini
  • Sea Salt
  • Olive oil


Note: I used organic ingredients because I like the taste/flavor the best.

  1. Roast the red pepper in the oven on parchment paper @400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes.
  2. Drain off half of the liquid in the beans. Dump the rest into a food processor with the lemon juice, tahini, 1 tsp salt (or more to taste).
  3. Blend ingredients together. Taste. Add more salt if it needs it, the roasted pepper, and a drizzle of Olive oil ( I used about 2 Tbs.)
  4. Blend again.
  5. Serve with veggies or crackers.
