How To Make Focaccia
Very nice and authentic tasting. Family loved it. All that olive oil made the difference, the focaccia tasted rich and delicious, I used sea salt in the recipe as well and thought it could have turned out just a tad more seasoned, but maybe if you use table salt you get the right amount.

Authentic Middle Eastern Hummus (Chummus)
It was a good recipe, I thought I could get away without skinning the chickpeas, as it is pretty tedious work, and I thought maybe the baking soda would help disintegrate the skin, as I've read, but really I just know the end taste of Hummus where the skins have been removed and where the skins haven't... This recipe would be even better if the skins were peeled, also, not sure what the cumin added, never used it before, and couldn't really pinpoint if it was actually needed at all..

Ragu Bolognese
I didn't exactly follow the recipe to a "T", but this recipe gave me the framework for a staple in my home. I don't use as much butter or oil, I use tomato paste instead of sauce, I use white wine and I added a pinch f nutmeg at the end.... It came out excellent, thanks entirely to this recipe.
