Easy Classic Hummus Recipe

Yes I finally made hummus, all by myself! Feeling accomplished. :) I love hummus, but usually buy it at a local company here in Portland.  I wanted to make it myself for snacks and whenever I am craving it. Yay! I love the simple and healthy ingredients that go into this hummus. Also, if you haven't already checked my previous post, Butternut Squash Fries you should, those fries are great with hummus.
