White Bean & Beet Dip

Have you ever made homemade hummus? I assure you it is almost too easy. I’ll admit that I purchase hummus at the store on a regular basis (you can’t do it all!)- but when the mood strikes, I enjoy whipping up an inspired flavour (like this Moroccan carrot hummus), or changing up an ingredient.

Beet Bourguignon

I first made beef bourguignon for my mom’s birthday earlier this year.
