RECIPE: Classic Homemade Humm(mmm!)us

These recipes are the concoctions of (fictitious) cartoon comic chef extraordinaire, Sherri’s neighbor and cooking mentor, Chef Chumley.  Chef and Sherri are happy to bring them to you on Wednesdays and Fridays.


From the beginning, conflict seems to surround hummus.  Did it originate in the Middle East or in Greece?  It most likely originated in the Middle East, an obvious geographic area of consistent conflict.  However, the world is in unanimous agreement; this delectable dip is a veritable delight! Be sure to serve this easy dish with great food for dipping, such as breadsticks…
