Featured Foodie Friday: Badger Girl Learns to Cook

So it has finally sunk in that I am moving to Hawaii… As your are reading this I am probably flying to San Francisco or from there to Hawaii! Packing for eight months in one big suitcase and one carry on is mortifying. Thank god I had my friend there for moral support and to help me actually get things from my floor into the suitcases!
I couldn’t be happier to introduce our guest blogger today, Kimberly from Badger Girl Learns to Cook. When she sent me this recipe I literally turned around and made it within five minutes. I used A1 steak sauce because I didn’t have any BBQ but it was still SO good! I also dipped chicken in it and WOW, so amazing. I think it would be awesome to use as a spread for a chicken sandwich too! With that said, I give you Kimberly:

Buffalo Wing Hummus
Hi Savour the Senses reader! Happy New Year! I was honored when Jenny asked me to do a guest post and I am thrilled to kick off the 2012 with you.

My name is Kimberly and you can find me at Badger Girl Learns to Cook. My blog covers whole food cooking and clean eating recipes through the eyes of a girl raised on baloney and American cheese slice sandwiches. So in short, it’s a learning process. :) 

When Jenny asked me to share a recipe, this was the first recipe that came to mind. I don’t know about you but I know I am trying to eat healthier in the new year. My Buffalo Wing Hummus is a great dip to keep in the house to cure your junk food cravings and it’s also a great dip to bring to parties. And not only is it delicious and healthy, it’s also super easy to whip together and the only item you will need to clean afterwards is your food processor. I love that!

Party Tip: Depending on the crowd at the party, I change the name. With my husband’s family, it’s just buffalo wing dip (my teenage nieces won’t touch anything labeled hummus or anything sounding healthy). With my friends, it’s buffalo wing hummus. Regardless of the name, it’s always a hit.  I hope you like it too! :)

    This looks so cool! I love hummus, and I love sriracha, so I bet I’d die for this concoction! :) Great guest post.

  2. Great recipe – I need to make this to keep me away from mayonaise and ketchup. Great post.

  3. I had buffalo hummus the other day but it wasn’t homemade. I bet this is even better!
