Hi it's me. Sorry I've been MIA for the past two weeks, but we were on vacation in Boston and Maine and suddenly had to come home because of Hurricane Harvey..and well you know how that went. Life has been interesting to say the least and while our community is still in complete recovery from the storm, I have started to resume somewhat of a normal routine again. My days have been running together and I haven't been sure what day it is for the last week, let alone what season it is! I hear fall is approaching, even though the weather here refuses to let me believe it until this morning where there is, dare I say, a crisp in the air which feels fantastic! With fall, comes all things comforting (which Houston could use right now) and my easy candied pecans are just that...basically a hug in food form.
It's Thursday and everyone is at your house hovering around you waiting for the meal to be ready. You are starting to sweat, no doubt from the oven being on since 4am and now because people are breathing down your neck. Sound familiar? Well I have the solution this year, you are going to make my curry pumpkin hummus and serve it up as the perfect appetizer to fill everyone's belly just enough to buy you a few extra minutes of cook time!
