Real Hummus
This is excellent! I have tried hummus several times, but was disappointed but with the list of ingredients, I should have liked it. I guess you just have to make it yourself! Thanks for the recipe.

Apple Dumplings with Rich Cinnamon Sauce
Let me tell you, this recipe is a **winner**. I'm from Ohio and there is a meat market where you can purchase the frozen dumplings and sauce to make at home and when my parents fly here (California) they bring them with...several packs because I've never seen a recipe that duplicates them. This is it. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I feel like this is a taste of home.

Basic Pasta
I just made this recipe for the first time. I am an experienced pasta maker, using various machines, rollers etc. This is by far the easiest to handle and has an excellent flavor. I used a kitchen-aid to mix the dough, but did the final kneading by hand. I doubled it the first time I used it. I added 1 tablespoon of olive oil in place of some of the water as well. After kneading, I covered it in plastic wrap and let it rest for about 15 minutes. Awesome performance in the rollers, and cutters and a better recipe than the Kitchen-Aid manual which I have always found to be too dry no matter what I do. This is awesome and now my go to recipe.
