Creamy Yogurt Hummus
I make my own hummus about once a week. Was a little concerned about the proportion of liquid to the beans so I used one can beans, 2 cloves garlic, 1/4 C lemon juice, 1/4 C non fat yogurt and added 1 tsp cumin, a few dashes of paprika. I thought it was quite good and I will probably start using yogurt instead of tahini from now on because it is much lower fat, lower cal and I eat a lot of it. Next time I will try thicker 2% greek yogurt for a more creamy texture. Great idea, thanks for the recipe.

Cream of Asparagus Soup II
made this and used veg broth and evaporated milk. i added a bit of turmeric and cayenne at the end to spice it up. my husband really liked it, and finished his bowl. he's not normally a big soup fan. next time i think i will saute some onion and puree part of the asparagus. i will use a little less flour as was a little on the thick side. great basic recipe, thanks for sharing.

i thought this recipe was perfect. i followed the recipe exactly except used light agave nectar in place of the honey. i thought there was plenty of syrup. the bottom of the baklava was not soggy at all. this is so delicious and pretty. this was my first time working with phyllo--the process does take awhile but when you finally get to eat some, it is just heavenly. i used a nut chopper which saves some time and chops the nuts pretty fine which is good for this recipe.
