Hurrican # 5. Mom found this on her trip to Florida. One of the most flavorful wines I have ever had.


I used the basic ingredients of hummus - Chickpeas, tahini, and lemon. I of course added a ton of garlic to each variety of hummus and some cilantro as well. Both varieties came our delicious but I enjoy the extra kick so I preferred the roasted red pepper.

They are right, once you make your own hummus, there is no need to ever buy it again!

Gluten Free Dinner Under 30 Part 5

Each week, a girl friend of mine and I pick something to look forward to. You know, just a little something to keep our hopes up throughout the crazy work week. This week we decided to make a nice dinner - yes this means with our schedule that the dinner will be closer to 9:30 -10:00pm, but still its a nice dinner to look forward to.

Sorry for the lack of communication once again - work has been consuming my life. I put in close to 300 hours for the month of January - YIKES!

The company has been great through all of the craziness thought - we have had provided lunches for some time now. Lucky me, most of the lunches were ordered from Main Line Pizza, Wayne, PA. I found Main Line Pizza sometime back, but this time I ordered their Hummus Wrap with a GF flatbread! Delicious!

I remove the feta cheese (for the tummy's sake) and I enjoy the peppers, cucumbers, tomato and spinach drenched in what seems like an entire container of hummus! I ordered this meal 3 days in a row -- and I hate repeat meals.
