    BBS, this salad would be good with feta cheese, too. I make a similar dressing, only with rice vinegar, and a pinch of dill. I will have to look for the champagne vinegar if I get o a grocery store again.

    I agree, Cat, it sounds great, I'm going to look for champagne vinegar too. Thanks, BBS!

    Cat, do you have the measurements for your dill dressing?

    This is a great thread to promote eating. Period.

    Anyone have a small convection oven?
    I'm going to check the microwave; if it is leaking it will be recycled
    and i will go for a fast countertop oven.

    I have a counter top oven. I use it daily to bake English muffins, or my new favorite, garlic breadsticks.

    This is my easy, yummy go-to for a healthy protein-rich, good fiber, non-meat snack. I've tried numerous recipes, this is the best I've tasted.

    Prep time: 5 minutes

    Hummus

    INGREDIENTS

    1⁄4 cup vegetable stock
    14 ounce can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
    1-2 garlic cloves
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    2 tablespoons tahini (REALLY adds flavour, but olive oil can replace if necessary)

    Blend or use immersion blender to mix all ingredients well. Refrigerate when not eating.

    Warm pita slices, drizzle with olive oil or on top of hummus. Spread hummus on pita...enjoy!
    I'm going to put this in the recipe portion of my blog.

    I love hummus and making it at home is a great way to know for sure what is in it.

    You can make vinegar out any juice that has sugar in it. All you have to do is add mother of vinegar and set it in a cool place. Converting sugars to alcohol to vinegar creates a lot of heat. Mother of vinegar is removed (by pasteurization) from most commercially produced vinegar. If you can get some "raw" vinegar you can use it to start your own vinegar. You inject it into grain alcohol to make white (clear) vinegar.

    I made raspberry vinegar once to serve on haricots verte (French skinny green beans).

    Some safety tips: use sharp knives...really sharp. Yes, you can get cut. But you'll get more seriously cut with a dull knife, as you'll be applying pressure to cut, and can easily slip. If you don't know to sharpen them, find someone who does!

    When taking something out of the oven, or off the stovetop, make sure you know where you're going to put it down. Make sure the space is clear, that the surface is protected, that the path between the oven, stovetop or microwave is clear..you dont want to trip with a hot dish or pan in your hands. Remember too that stuff in the microwave gets HOT. Sometimes the outside of the dish will seem cool...til you actually pick it up and try to hang on to it!

    Don't try to cook when you're tired. That's just asking for an accident. Especially in summer, try to cook either early in the morning or in the evening when it's cooler.

    Try not to multitask. Prepare one dish at a time. I get easily confused and stressed if I'm trying to put together multiple very different dishes...what goes where???

    Potholders. One cannot have too.many potholders: by the stove, the oven, the micro. Don't try to take shortcuts and just grab that dish because the nearest potholder is over there, and you don't want to expend to energy to walk over and get it.

    Others?
