    There's a Hummus recipe that I got from this lady and it is DELICIOUS!

    It tastes so much better than the ones you buy at the grocery store.

    Here's the recipe if you're interested:

    3 tablespoon--lemon juice

    1 tablespoon--olive oil

    1/4 cup--water

    1--small garlic clove

    1 teaspoon--salt

    1 1/2 cups--canned chick peas, drained

    1 teaspoon--Tahini (optional)

    1 handful of chopped parsley

    A dash of red pepper flakes

    1. Drain the chick peas, put them in a colander, and rinse them under water until all the foam is gone.

    2. Blend all ingredients, except pepper flakes, in a food processor. Puree until the spread is smooth. Sprinkle on the pepper flakes and you're done!

    3. Use veggies, bread, crackers, or tiny pitas to scoop up the hummus!

    Hope you'll like it as much as I did. Tell me how it works out. =)

    If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here

    The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true

    # vanilla pod, halved lengthways

    # 100g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling

    # 200g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing

    # 300g plain flour, sifted, plus extra for dusting

    Makes 24

    Takes 15 minutes to make, 15 minutes in the oven, plus chilling and cooling

    1. Using a knife, scrape along the cut side of the vanilla pod to remove the seeds. Place the seeds in a large bowl with the sugar and mix well (store the vanilla pod in a jar of sugar to flavour the sugar). Add the butter and mix with a wooden spoon until lightly creamed. Add the flour and a pinch of salt, then mix to a soft dough. Turn out, wrap in cling film and chill for 1 hour or overnight.

    2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out until about 5mm thick. Use an 8cm round fluted cutter to cut out the biscuits, re-rolling the trimmings to make 24. Transfer to 2 large, greased baking trays. Sprinkle with sugar, then chill for 10 minutes.

    3. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 160°C/fan140°C/gas 3. Bake the biscuits for about 15 minutes, swapping the trays around halfway, until pale golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool and crisp up. Place the shortbread in a large storage jar ready to take to the picnic.


    Store the shortbread in an airtight container in a cool place for up to 3 days.

    Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

    24 cherry tomatoes (can use a mixture of red and yellow tomatoes)

    Cut a small portion off the bottoms of each tomato so they will sit on a try without rolling. slice off the tops of each tomatoes and scoop out centers with the small end of a melon scope to make a hollow yet sturdy shell; discard centers. TIP: Turn cherry tomatoes upside down and use the bottom for the top when stuffing. This keeps them standing straight.

    Invert tomatoes onto damp paper towels and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to fill.

    Using a small spoon, fill each tomato with about 1 teaspoon of the filling of your choice. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Remove from refrigerator 15 minutes before serving.

    1/2 to 1 tablespoon mayonnaise

    In a bowl, combine crabmeat, celery, cashew nuts, Worcestershire sauce, salt, tarragon, and mayonnaise (use just enough mayonnaise to moisten and hold ingredients together).

    4 ounces fresh soft Mozzarella Cheese
