Real Hummus
I have been using this recipe since I discovered it a year and half ago. It is perfect- though I do change it to taste. I use more Garlic- 3 or 4 cloves - and use the authors recomendation of cumin and less salt. I still only use 2tbsp of tahini, but they are heaping tbsps. I've tried to stray more from the recipe, but when i do it turns out awful. So i always have this recipe in hand when i want to be sure of making Good hummus.

Granny's Corn Flour Tortillas
I am extremely pleased with how these turned out. I waited until the resting period to read the other reviews, and was really nervous that these would be really dry. Even as I rolled them out, I found myself wishing I had a mexican grandmother to teach me how to do it right! But as each one was rolled, I got better at it, and found I didn't need any flour at all to roll them. I used spray cooking oil to fry them with. I did cut off the edges by tracing a plate with a knife before I fried them(I don't have a tortilla press) Maybe that helped with the dryness that I was afraid would happen. I will make these again, and maybe try adding some spice to see what happens.

Green Pea Poulourie
I have never heard of, let alone make anything, like Poulourie. I was thrilled with these. they were surprisingly light with a nice crisp to them. I've made them twice, and even when I forgot salt the first time, I was excited to make them again. I like them better as a snack than a side or meal though.
