Dukkah

Dukkah

Great for dipping with olive oil, this dukkah recipe is a crumbly nut and spice blend typically associated with Egypt - hazelnuts, cariander seeds, sesame seeds, cumin seeds, black peppercorns, fennel seeds, dried mint leaves, and salt.

Whipped Chickpea Hummus

Whipped Chickpea Hummus

Actually two different takes on hummus. One with an Italian twist, and one a lovely shade of green from the incorporation of a bit of sauteed spinach.

Thousand Layer Lasagna

Thousand Layer Lasagna

I'll never make lasagna any other way. Impossibly thin layers of feathery-light pasta with just enough sauce and cheese between each layer to keep it moist and flavorful.

Homemade and All-natural Thin Mint Recipe

Homemade and All-natural Thin Mint Recipe

As promised, an all-natural Thin Mint recipe for you. No shortening, no trans-fats from partially hydrogenated vegetable oils - just good old-fashioned butter, cocoa, vanilla, sugar, chocolate, whole grain flour, and peppermint turned into delicious, thin minty goodness.

Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream

Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream

A liquid nitrogen ice cream recipe - it uses a vanilla base, and makes a wonderfully creamy ice cream.

A lilikoi curd-swirled loaf cake. It moist in the middle, sliceable, and delicious. Change curds with the seasons or as you are inspired - any flavor will work.

This candied walnut recipe was is the perfect solution to a New Years Eve hors d'oeuvres dilemma. Made with walnuts, sea salt, black pepper, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and powdered sugar.
