It's a snowy week here in Kentucky, but the forecast calls for a beautiful weekend and an even better week next week. Here are some posts and sites I've found to get us through till then!
- I love hummus, and my daughter does too. We like to make it, but I've never been able to get it quite creamy enough for my taste. I always thought it was my blender or food processor, but I came across this method for making creamy hummus from fresh tart. I'll be trying this soon and will let you know how it turns out!
- I know I posted about Nutella last week, but I just love that stuff! David Lebovitz has posted a Homemade Nutella recipe that might be worth a try...
- I haven't had much chance to check it out fully, but it looks like Foodily is a great resource for cooks. It's a recipe search engine with photos, the ability to connect on Facebook, the attraction of creating menus, and more.
- Have you heard of AmeriCorps, the federally-funded service program that sends people out to help with anything from public education to environmental clean up? They've just added a division called Food Corps, which would allow service members to be involved in the school food movement, anywhere from starting and tending school gardens to organizing the Farm to School programs at specific schools. It's limited to certain states, but it's a start toward healthier school lunches!
