Homemade Hummus To A Man’s Heart


People always say the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Regardless of whether it is true or not I like to keep my husband’s stomach happy. Whenever I’m not around, my husband likes to go for takeaway and kebab is on his top 5 list. I decided to try my hand at middle eastern cuisine a couple days ago. Instead of going straight to the main course, I started off with a popular appetizer – hummus. It is easy to make and is great to serve as finger food at parties.
