Hummus III
Great basic recipe. I encourage everyone to be creative and experiment with this one. I used 1 cup of dried garbanzo beans, which I soaked and cooked till tender (you can easily Google to find directions of how to do this). I would much rather do this than used canned beans - the cans contain BPA. I didn't have any fresh parsley, so I added 1 tsp of dried to the mix. I did add some cumin - maybe a 1/2 - 1 tsp or so, and a good size hunk of roasted red pepper or 1 fresh red bell pepper, cored and cut into chunks. I increased the garlic as well - about 2 to 6 cloves can be used depending on your taste. I also added a dash or two of smoked paprika to the mix. I used the juice of two lemons rather than the 1/4 cup called for in the recipe. Delicious and very satisfying.

Golden Sweet Cornbread
This is a good basic cornbread recipe. I used 1/3 cup of sugar (half of what the recipe called for) and substituted vanilla coconut milk for the regular milk - yummy! I also baked it in a greased muffin pan and shortened the baking time by approx. 5 min. Yield: 12 muffins

Asian Ginger Dressing
I halved the recipe, and I did not heat it the mixture. I ran out of rice vinegar and substituted Trader Joe's Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar, and used a very dark grade of honey. I added a bit of toasted oil to the olive oil as well. Also, in lieu of regular soy sauce, I used Bragg's Aminos. Finally, I used my stick immersion blender to make it smooth. Absolutely delish!
