Mom’s apple pie

This is the same apple pie recipe my mom has been using for as long as I can remember. In my opinion, no other pie is better, though I am perhaps a bit biased. Thanks for teaching me how to make pie mom!

This recipe is for one double-crust pie. I use the same crust recipe for all my pies. If you are making single crust pies like pumpkin, this crust recipe will make two pies.

40 spices hummus

I’ve been making hummus off an on since 1998, with many techniques and recipes. For awhile I got lazy and started buying store bought – I became particularly fond of 40 spice hummus by Tribe, and then they stopped carrying it, which prompted me to start making my own again, and to try to replicate the recipe. I used to use canned chickpeas, but have decided that starting with dried chickpeas is worth the effort to produce really smooth hummus. Another trick is to add a little baking soda while cooking the chickpeas – that seems to make them break down and end up really smooth. This recipe only has about 25 spices if you count the individual spices in the garam masala, but it’s close enough in my book.

Greek lasagna

This dish has many of my favorite things – the tomato sauce and noodles of a traditional lasagna, spinach found in many vegetarian lasagnas, and eggplant found in Greek dishes like moussaka.
