Real Hummus
Very good basic Hummus recipe! I went with the updated version the author added. The only difference I made was similar to others; cooked the garlic before adding it. Raw garlic can be over powering. But roasting takes too long for me when I get a Hummus craving! Instead I put the garlic through a press and added it to about 2-3 tablespoons of water and simmered it on the stove in a small sauce pan for about 5 minutes. It takes the edge off. Then I added all of it, garlic and water to the Hummus in the blender. So good and yummy!!

Trudy's Super Deluxe Crab Dip
This is a great crab dip. It could almost be called a crab spread as it's firmer than a dip, but that's partly why it's so good and impressive! I put it in a ring mold and it came out perfect! I did put some cooking spray oil in the mold which helped unmold it. Some olives, or celery in the center and crackers around the edge and everyone ooo'd and ahh'd! Then gobbled it all up. Be sure to use little spread knives to put it on the crackers. I did add a little real canned crab to the imitation and it gave it a stronger crab flavor without increasing the cost too much. I am for sure going to make it again.
