  • Best. Hummus. Ever. Period.

    We all have at least one "go-to" recipe don't we? I have a favorite soup, my simple salad dressing, and of course, an easy party drink. Well this hummus has become my go-to for entertaining, pot lucks, and anytime I'm looking to fix my Middle Eastern food craze. I've given this recipe out to many friends, and although I wasn't the creator, I do feel that this dip is a cornerstone of my cooking: full of flavor, relatively simple to make, and even better the following day!

Shalonda - Did you make a dipping sauce to go with these? I’m going to try making with Gabriella! Thanks for the great recipe.

Ramona - Omg… I would so eat that entire plateful (and the one behind it) for breakfast right now. They look insanely good!!

Brochetas de Pollo: Spanish Style Kabobs

We are floating in expat purgatory.  It’s not a negative experience, but rather a life of sometimes. Sometimes it’s nice to be lost in the crowd of our local grocery store amongst people who are speaking a language other than our own.  Sometimes it’s isolating. Sometimes is challenging to feel like a toddler again, learning […]
