Last Minute Labor Day Recipes

Adam and I are currently on our way back home from a wedding in Michigan.  It was a beautiful wedding and interesting to see two cultures (Indian and American) come together.  I’ve never been to an Indian wedding so I really liked seeing their traditions and how they celebrate.  Plus, the weather was great and the farm scenery was awesome.

Muhammara– If you need a dip that isn’t hummus…

Zucchini Avocado Hummus– …. and if you need a dip that is like hummus but secretly isn’t.
