I'm starting to hear this line often. I know that people like the standards, like my hummus or baba ghannouj, but I still like trying new things. Especially so I can post the recipe here.
When my cousin Andrew asked me to make some dips for a wedding potluck I decided it was time to do some research. I was still going to bring something familiar, but I wanted to bring something new as well.
The first recipe I jumped on was a bean and red pepper dip I found in the JC (Jewish Chronicle), a newspaper in the UK. I had to change the recipe somewhat since both standard quantites (i.e., can size) and measurements are different across the pond.
The second recipe (more on it next week) I made especially for Andrew's new wife as a tribute to Poland.
