Roasted Jalapeño Hummus

It’s crush time again.

For those who just come here for the food, feel free to jump to the end of this post.*

For the rest of you, it’s girl crush time.

So, who am I crushing on now?

Well, it’s none other than the crazy talented Felicia Day.

She acts. She sings. She directs. She writes. She produces. She leaps tall buildings in a single bound.

Oh, wait.

Not sure about that last one.


Actually, you know what? I bet she could do that too.

I don’t think there’s anything that girl CAN’T do. And she’s gorgeous to boot. Her show, The Flog, is all kinds of awesome. If you haven’t done so already, you really need to check out Geek and Sundry and subscribe to their channel.

Felicia, you rock.
