Delicious! This has become a staple in my household. I serve it with rice, black beans, sauteed peppers and onion (fajita style) and a half an avocado per person. It's a simple meal to prepare and it's one of my boyfriend's favorite dishes. Thank you so much for sharing this one!

Lemon Garlic Hummus

Delicious hummus recipe! The garlic I use from the market is very strong, so I used a bit less. I never knew how easy it was to make hummus and I'm glad I found my go-to recipe.

I switched out the corn syrup for a tablespoon of molasses and a tablespoon of maple syrup and put in half dark brown sugar and half white sugar (what I had in the house). I also added in a bit of extra cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves and 1/8 teaspoon allspice. As others have noted, this recipe made way too much and I think I put too much into my pie dish. This meant it took a REALLY long time to cook. I had to keep checking on it and I even think it was overcooked a bit. Next time, I won't fill up the pie so much. However, everyone said it was delicious. This recipe, or at least my adjustment of it, is not too sweet, which my guests enjoyed, but it would also be good with maybe a bit more sugar. I also cut out a bit of pie crust with a snowflake cookie cutter and baked this on it's own small baking sheet. I dusted it with powdered sugar and then placed it on the pie to make it extra special for our Christmas celebration!

Crisp Sugar Cookies

I haven't made cookies in quite some time. This recipe was super easy - I made it with my food processor with the dough blade, mixing it by hand every so often. I cooled the dough for a day in the fridge. I doubled the vanilla. When the were cool I used a paint brush to paint them with light corn syrup and then I sprinkled on colored sanding sugar. This gave a nice added texture. These were sweet and buttery, perfect sugar cookies.
