Homemade Hummus Recipes | Bee's Beautiful World

The components for basic hummus are easy enough – after all, it’s just chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic at its most basic – but their particular recipe really digs down into the technique of making super creamy and smooth hummus; the kind of begs for veggies and chips to be dipped into it!

Lemon juice and tahini always form the basis of the hummus, in order to create a smooth and airy concoction before the chickpeas are added.

Released in Japan and Europe late last year, and with an impending US release date of February 7th, “Bravely Default” is being hailed as a spiritual successor to the Final Fantasy franchise.

Easy DIY Polaroid Bunting: Custom Photo Garlands Tutorial | Bee's Beautiful World

I find few things as satisfying as putting together wall art that has a truly personal touch. Why buy a random print from Target when you can easily make something that really says something about you? The crafting world has fallen hard for bunting in recent years, and although I’ve seen dozens of bunting kits sold online, I’m more given over to handmade bunting. It not only has a more authentic touch – it’s cheaper, too!
