Chickpea Soup: The Best Italian Comfort Soup EVER
Well dear readers, I'm thinking about doing a cookbook. But when I looked over my recipes, I realized I was missing a chickpea soup recipe, the kind you find in Italy. Then the other day, lo and behold, Holly, my yoga teacher said, "I'm coming over and we are going to make chickpea soup." I don't usually argue with Holly, and I didn't this time either. She based her soup on a Marcella Hazan recipe she found online, but of course, we modified and simplified it a bit. The results were simply astoundingly delicious. We made it on a cold winter's day, and it was the most perfect heartwarming, stomach-filling, soul-satisfying...

Eating More Hummus Could Help Put An End To Cigarettes
Need to justify your hummus addiction? Just explain that you're saving lives. As cigarette sales continue to decline, some farmers have started to grow chickpeas instead of tobacco plants. Unlike cigarettes, hummus is still en vogue and croppers are better able to support themselves by harvesting the little bean.

You know how in some marriages spouses end up sleeping in separate bedrooms because someone snores and kicks the other one? Wel...
