Before things started to get overly-busy at work, we frequently brought in food to share with our colleagues. My colleague Patty once brought a tasty and fragrant seed and nut mixture that I loved called Dukkah. It was great as a dip with olive oil and fresh bread, and I also added it to my hummus.
