Dirty Martini Hummus

Print Dirty Martini Hummus Prep Time: 5 minutes Category: appetizer, dip Yield: About 3 cups hummus I love the smooth and creamy texture of the cannellini beans and the flavor of the chick peas (garbanzo beans).

A fun tip that I learned after making them is to take one plastic popsicle bag and cut it in half or thirds to fit your individual bars into. This is such a great and time saving tip.

Make Your Own Rubber Band Wall

My little girl loves playing with her rubber band wall. My husband and I set ours up next to our kitchen. This is a great way for her to learn and play and create shapes.
