Lemon Hummus

WOAH!!!!  That's about all I can say.  

For some reason, I've held off on buying a food processor for the past several months.  I guess the main reason was my lack of kitchen storage space.  But, I grew sick and tired of seeing countless recipes for home-made pesto, hummus, nut butters, etc. and getting bummed out that I could not make them.  Finally, after a recipe for a maple-almond nut butter (it's coming!!) entered into my dreams, I decided it was time to purchase one.  Thank goodness I did.

This hummus.  This hummus has no words to describe it.  You just need to make it.  And eat it.  And never buy store bought hummus again.
