Sun Dried Tomato Hummus and Bacon Wrapped Dates: recipe linked above


Fresh crumbled feta with jalapeno (preferably sheep's milk)

  1. 8 oz feta, mix with chopped jalepeno (start with a teaspoon and add more to taste) or mix with chopped sun dried tomatoes to taste. I also like to combine the two! Tomatoes and jalepeno together.
  2. Drizzle cheese mixture with extra virgin olive oil and use to spread on crackers, or as a dip for chips or pita.

Goat cheese with fig jam:

  1. Spoon Fig Jam onto goat cheese and use a knife to spread on crackers
