Matt & I had a little House Warming Party this past weekend and it was a lot of fun! I, ofcourse took the party as an opportunity to test out a lot of new recipes I have been meaning to try.
First up-Catherine’s Hummus recipe from her new up and coming book. What a hit! Everyone loved the garlicy taste and the smooth texture of this hummus. I did stick to the recipe–however, I must admit I added some roasted red peppers to half of the hummus to mix it up a little bit.
Next, Dreena’s Coconut Rasberry Squares (from The Everyday Vegan) ..well, actually I made triangles! I didn’t have the suggested 8 x 8 square pan, so I made them in a round dish. They are soo cute as triangles…and oh my goodness…the taste! They were beyond delicious and were gone within 30 minutes of the party’s start time (although, Matt admits he ate three of the triangles!).
Then we have Ben’s Black Bean Salsa from How it all Vegan. Mmmm, another hit! One person even asked for the recipe–not for him, but for his wife–so she can make it for him! haha.
Lastly, we have the Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars from How it all Vegan. Sadly, not a hit. They were just not what you would expect from a recipe called “cookie bars”–they were more like pieces of dry cake. They also were very bland–no sweetness at all. Oh, well. Can’t win them all!
