Homemade Hummus

1 can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans
3-5 tablespoons lemon juice (depending on taste)
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini (I used more!)
2 cloves fresh garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt- add more to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

Blend all in blender leaving some of the chunks for texture. Add a bit of the liquid from garbanzo beans- or more olive oil- if you need more liquid to blend. Dust with Paprika.

Serve with vegetables, pita bread or crackers to dip. One of the most wonderful foods in the world! Definitely!

Eggs in a Frame

These are so easy and yummy!

Cookie Cut a whole in your bread and pull out the center. You can use a glass, cookie cutter or anything your heart desires! (I used a crystal light container cut down that I use for biscuit cutting) Butter one side of the bread.

Make sure your non-stick pan is *really* non stick. If it isn't go ahead and add some butter or oil to the pan just in case or it will get messy. (ask me how I know!) Place butter side up bread in pan over medium heat and...

...crack egg in the middle.
You can break your yolk if you like and add salt, pepper, whatever you like.
When bread is nice and golden brown and eggs are cooked to your desired doneness- FLIP!
Fry the little rounds and add as presentation.
