Hummus, how do you make hummus? Normally I use 2-16 ounce cans of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained and rinsed to make hummus in a blender with some of the extra seasonings listed below. Today I made hummus from scratch using bulk garbanzo beans. I soaked the beans overnight then drained the water. Next, I covered them with fresh water and cooked them for about an hour (until they were the right texture). You are basically cooking beans. Next you drain them and they are ready to use.

Do you need a clothesline that could be used in a pinch if you lose power? Have you wondered, “what kind should I buy”? Well, I have been looking for a clothesline for a few years….yes a few years. I have a conventional dryer, but I wanted one that I could use to save me money on utility bills, and hence be self-sufficient at the same time. EarthEasy was gracious enough to send one of these to me to try in my yard. This really is the best one I have found anywhere!
