DIY Black Tahini and Beet Hummus

Black tahini offers a sweeter, nuttier flavor than tahini made with white sesame seeds. With such black gold at my finger tips, I decided to add it to a hummus that could stand up to it, pigment-wise. The color alone is sure to turn a few heads at your next gathering. More

DIY Rice Milk

Habanero Tequila

For this deliciously spicy home infusion find a clean and affordable blanco tequila, but make sure it says 100% agave on the label. More

DIY Blueberry Cereal Bars

Homemade blueberry cereal bars pack real blueberry flavor in a crisp, tender, buttery crust. By using a food processor to do the mixing work, this recipe requires a time investment but is not labor intensive. There is a bit of the devil in the assembly details, however. More
