Sweet Potato Hummus x 2: Sweet & Spicy

You know you are a foodie when you can’t sleep at night because your thoughts are consumed with what you can do with your brand new food processor.

I failed to mention that last week I had another baby. After purchasing my black baby back in October (the Nikon), I was ready to buy another coveted food blogger item: a food processor. 

After receiving Grammy’s comical Christmas present (let’s not forget this pic), I started researching. Much like the Nikon/Canon debate, many people have a preference over using Cuisinart or Kitchenaid. Luckily for me, choosing a food processor was much easier than choosing a camera. Instead of 29867636982525286925 hours of internet surfing, I spent about 1 hour online and 45 seconds speaking to a Bed, Beth, and Beyond worker. Boom, done, time to puree. 

This was the day I took home the baby. Please note the bags under my eyes – big decisions take a huge toll on me.DSC_1792

And here is when I started talking to it like it really was human, probably telling it how much I couldn’t wait to use it. Either that I was talking to my photographer. Let’s go with the latter.DSC_1791

In need of its first bath, I started taking the pieces apart. Enjoy my outfit.DSC_1785

I’m sure 99.9% of my readers can safely assume that I had an accident. I somehow managed to drop the blade and stab myself in the leg. Day 1 with the food processer.


Back to today. So because I was up all last night thinking about recipes, I was super tired today. The bags are never going away, are they? And what does this healthy munchkin do when she hasn’t had enough sleep? She skips the gym. And what does she do with an extra hour of time? She cooks, of course.

I’d like to introduce you to two new kinds of hummus that are sure to rock your world but hopefully not cause a leg injury.
