This red pepper hummus is over the top delicious! It is full of that irresistible freshly roasted red bell pepper flavor and you’re going to have a hard time putting it away.

2 small ripe avocados
the juice of half a lime
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
sea salt to taste

Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls

Vietnamese Spring Rolls and Dipping Sauce by droolfactor: This is a fresh and easy dish that can be prepared ahead of time.

It’s a great entrée to serve at dinner parties, or as canapés or snacks. The good thing is that the rolls stay fresh covered with a damp cloth for a few hours, so it’s a great dish that can be prepared ahead of time.

Ingredients for rice paper roll:

Guinness Beef Stew

You can make it on the stove or in the slow cooker.  But either way, this stew is full of flavor (yes, you can taste the Guinness!) 

Easy Chicken Gyros & Tzatziki Sauce

Quick Greek-style chicken gyros you can whip up on busy nights in just 20 minutes, these are a family favorite!

If you’re not a red pepper fan, skip them, if you love feta cheese load it on. Perfect for dinner, but they also make a great on-the-go option for work lunch. Just sayin’.
