Basic Curry Sauce
This was very, very tasty. I was very impressed with the depth of flavour of this recipe. I have to admit to making a small alteration--I left out the cayenne and the Serrano peppers. I would have loved this with the peppers, but I was making this for a group of nineteen 5-7 year olds, so I didn't want it to be spicy. I used this sauce on chicken and zucchini. All but two of the children, only one of whom had ever had curry before, came back for seconds.

Real Hummus
Just like the hummus my Israeli-Canadian friend's dad made for her brother's bar mitzvah! I really recommend making it the night before you want to use it to let the flavours blend better. I don't know if it was my blender or what, but I had a few bland spots until it sat for a few hours. I forgot to put in the pepper (oops) but otherwise did everything according to the recipe. I use this as a mayo substitute on sandwiches, as well as using it on wraps. Of course, it's also amazing with chips (pita, tortilla are best)

Basic Crepes
I used a stovetop wok for this recipe, and discovered quickly that in a stovetop wok (one with good teflon) you do not need the butter in the pan and can cook them quickly and effectively if you use med-high heat. Excellent recipe, but I did make a couple small alterations. First off, I blended all of the liquid ingredients and the salt together (also adding a small amount of sugar) until smooth and uniform, then added the flour about a 6th of a cup at a time, blending fully each time to get a very smooth batter. I've done this with any crepe recipe since I was about 10 (I've been making these for about 10 years). At this point, I found the batter was too thick to get good, transparent crepes, so I added a small amount more milk and water and blended thoroughly. They turned out PERFECTLY after I discovered the trick with my wok. My partner, who is from French-Canadian descent, as I am, and grew up on good crepes, was VERY impressed and wants me to make them again tomorrow. We ate them simply--butter and jam for him and butter and maple syrup for me--and tomorrow we're going to make "dessert" crepes with cut up fruit and whipped cream. Awesome recipe, after the alterations I made. The same as the traditional recipe I learned as a small child--I even had to make precisely the same alterations to get the results I wanted! I've personally never bothered with the wait times for traditional crepes and get as good results.
