I love Blogs! Skillet Bread and Creamy Carrot Dip

I have been scouring my old favorite blogs and many new favorite blogs lately.  I am on a daily search for new and fun foods and ideas for shaking things up a little in my kitchen.  I realize that most people probably eat the same few meals recycled throughout the month.  Alas, I have this strange affliction of feeling like I need to make something new ALL THE TIME!  This is odd because honestly I have been known to wear the same pair of pants 3 or 4 days in a row (what?).  Anyhow…..

I found this skillet bread recipe on The Spunky Coconut the other day and I absolutely had to make it that very night.  It sounded so strangely impossibly easy.  And I had 2 cups of garbanzo beans that I needed to use up and didn’t feel like making hummus.  This was perfect!

I monkeyed around with the spices a bit to go with my lovely Creamy Carrot Spread, Dip or whatever you want to call it.  I changed them from Italian style spices to Indian spices mmmmmm… it worked beautifully 🙂

The photos do not do any part of this meal justice!  It was delicious, if a bit brownish orange looking!
