Potato and Kale Spanish Tortilla

I was afraid this recipe would be too omlette or fritatta like, and I’m not a huge fan of either. But the proportion of potatoes to egg was just right… just enough to hold it together but not so much that it tasted like an omlette. We topped it with parmesan cheese and a sprinkle...

Hummus and Vegetable Sandwiches

We found a good hummus! Hooray! I couldn’t tell you what was wrong with the last one, but this hummus recipe is wonderful. Paired with the bread and veggies, it really can’t be beat.
