I love this healthy, tasty drink that is only sweetened by fruit. It's super fast to make with only four ingredients. I especially like the tartness of the yogurt. So refreshing! Use flavorful, fresh ingredients and adjust everything according to your tastes. The yogurt is very important to this recipe. I have been enjoying Trader Joes European plain in the red carton.
I think this hummus has the perfect blend of flavors. I can't believe the difference the home-cooked chickpeas make over the canned. This recipe was in an LA Times article on the best hummus in Los Angeles.
As always, make sure your garlic is fresh. I didn't use the cayenne or paprika although this was great without them. I'll try them next time. Taste and use your own judgment on that one. I made this in my Vita-Mix blender with good results. Preparation time is for soaking and cooking.
I make this with Tyler Florence's Pita Bread. Which I start in my bread machine.
I don't know if Tyler Florence would approve of the use of a bread machine to knead his pita bread recipe. I think it works wonderfully. Fresh pita bread is like a loaf of homemade bread. The flavor, texture and fragrance can't be compared with the store bought variety. I think this goes well with Paula Wolfert's Hummus which I also submitted to RecipeZaar. This recipe uses a Pizza Stone but I think you might possibly use a hot cookie sheet with good results. Prep time is bread machine time.
As a kid this was a favorite Sunday morning breakfast. On Saturday my dad loved to cook huge breakfasts. My mom cooked Monday through Friday...but on Sundays while Mom was putting on her makeup and heels and Dad was tying his tie we had an easy-to-prepare breakfast such as Avocado Toast.
In the '60s avocados were still a little strange for most Americans and were not as easy to get. Lucky for us my Uncle George from Lakeside CA grew his own. We treated them like gold. For Avocado Toast we used only about 1/8 of the fruit. You can use 1/2 or even more per toast. A dense, hearty wheat bread works well but I like all kinds.
Mrs. Beasley often brought this to church potlucks when I was a kid. She was our school (Cherry Valley Brethren Elementary) janitors wife and a kind, quiet woman. I think of her when I make this. She had Celiac Disease so there is no wheat/gluten in this dish.
One of my favorite things in this recipe is the way the onions take on that sweet pickled flavor and get milder with setting. Mrs. Beasley used only 1/2 teaspoon dill seed but I like it better with more. The sugar may be modified to your taste.
My Aunt June departed this earth recently and will be sorely missed. She was well known for her hospitality and had a way of making everyone feel welcome. Everyone loved her macaroni salad. It never lasted long at reunions and holidays.
I usually make this without measuring so I hope I got the amounts right. Any ingredient can be adjusted to your taste. June used half the jar of pimientos and 6 eggs. I like a whole jar of pimento and a dozen eggs.
The flavors are even better the next day. Preparation time includes cooking time.
Loma Linda Market Cafe used to serve this in the eighties. The city of Loma Linda is a hub for Seventh Day Adventists. They are known for their healthy vegetarian lifestyle. Is this healthy? Maybe and maybe not. Beware! This is like eating dessert. All amounts are to taste. The bread may be toasted and served open faced.
This is a wonderful, simple recipe my mom came up with a few years ago. Kids and adults all seem to love this. It's great for informal get togethers. The real peanut butter is the key. You can use this along with hot fudge over vanilla ice cream for a real treat! I will have to post my Gram's malt shop hot fudge recipe to go along with it.
These are sweet-hot dills. They're good with sandwiches, hamburgers and just to snack on. My DS tried this with whole baby dills and let them marinade for two weeks and they turned out great! We have had excellent results using a Splenda-sugar mix. This is FAST to prepare! You have to wait a few days to eat.
My Aunt June got my whole (greater) family making these. They really are addicting. This is my first recipe posted. These would make nice appetizers. I like them for a light brunch.
(Update) Dill Rye Bread is made by Oroweat. It has green on the packaging. You can use regular rye but I need the dill rye. I also love using sliced/quartered cherry or grape tomatoes when I don't grow my own. They look really pretty on top and usually have a good flavor in this. Also if you really like pepper this is a great recipe to really load it on.
