“Early summer days are a jubilee time for birds. In the fields, around the house, in the barn, in the woods, in the swamp — everywhere love and songs and nests and eggs,” said E.B. White.
Yes, I’ve been getting up at 5 am these past 2 weeks. I love summer, and the birds are here to remind me to not waste a minute of the day!
Mint Lemon Hummus Recipe
Just in time for summer, this Fresh Mint Lemon Hummus Recipe, so delightful served on a charcuterie platter, or with a side of crunchy veggies. If you want to venture into making crostini, this Peach Ricotta Crostini is another favorite!
The perfect snack, or a lovely appetizer for guests.
Do you ever make your own hummus? I sometimes forget how easy it is, and reach for store-bought. You may want to try my Black Bean Hummus or Spicy Avocado Hummus (with cheesy quesadillas). Yes!
Best hummus recipe
For summer, add in lemon and mint … so fresh and good.
With this Mint and Lemon Hummus recipe, serve with a side of veggies, or you can even take a potato peeler and peel zucchini and cucumber slices to roll up with hummus inside. This is a great party idea (photos coming soon).
We had our first heat wave over the weekend. It’s easy to want to hunker down inside near the air conditioner, but guess what? We don’t have an A/C! That’s right! Here in central Oregon, it’s the high desert so the nights really cool off. Even thought it’s 90 degrees during the day, we’ve learned to always bring a sweater or to pack layers if we’re heading out. Or, on our back patio, just move in closer to one another around our little fire :)
In the meantime, not only am I listening to the early-morning birds, but also watching squirrels chase up and down the trees in the late afternoon … everywhere, love and songs, nests and eggs.
Thank you E.B. for the wonderful reminder of summer.

This would have been great but 2tsp is way too much salt. Now I feel like I wasted time and food it’s too salty to eat :/
It’s a 1/2 tsp of KOSHER salt, not 2 tsp. Be sure to get low or no salt garbanzo beans and rinse them. This is so incredibly delicious, a favorite in our house now!
I can never turn down a good hummus! Love this flavor combination :)
This looks delicious, and it’s a good one to add to your charcuterie platters too!
