With peppers aplenty coming in the garden right now, I was thinking of ways to use them and this idea hit me. I am amazed how this turned out! This dip is mild, delicate, complex, and absolutely delicious!
Black Bean Hummus
This is the absolute best hummus I have ever had. It goes great with some toasted pita bread. Add more lemon juice if this hummus tastes like it needs a little extra kick.

Nice compliment to salmon, chicken, and pork. Can also be used as a sandwich spread or a dipping sauce for pretzels.

This spinach artichoke dip tastes similar to those served at chain restaurants in our area. This one uses refrigerated Alfredo sauce as its base to give it a wonderful creamy texture.
Love Thai food? Love hummus? Me too. Here's a hummus with my favorite traditional Thai flavors including lemon grass, ginger, basil, coconut, lime, and sweet chili. Dip carrots, celery, chips, broccoli, or my favorite sweet pepper strips in this spicy-sweet-savory hummus perfect for warm, tropical days or for when you need to scratch that Thai food itch.
Chef John's Grilled Swordfish Bruschetta
There are two keys to this recipe. First, add enough oil and vinegar to your tomatoes to make a good amount of 'sauce' with which to douse the grilled fish and bread. Second, grill the bread very well over the coals. It should be golden brown with distinctive charred grill marks. The bitter hit from these stripes of charred bread actually makes the tomatoes even sweeter and more delicious.
