This hummus is flavorful, easy to make, healthy and will hit the spot during your fall celebrations.
Hummus is so simple to make and so delicious. Classic hummus is made of tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, and salt. But did you know that you can add different ingredients and make it any kind of flavor? From savory to sweet like chocolate or strawberry.
This recipe is very easy to make. It comes together in less than 10 minutes with just a few ingredients. You just add all the ingredients to your food processor, pulse and it’s done! Be sure to scrape down the sides a few times.
Tahini is a sesame paste and you can usually find it in the ethnic section of your supermarket. Make sure that you use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.
If you need to bring a yummy treat to any celebration this is the right recipe for you. The combination of cinnamon, ginger and garlic goes surprisingly well. You can serve it with tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers, vegetables, or use it as a spread on sandwiches, wraps or on your salads.

This Black Chocolate Piñata Cake is so delicious, luscious and it will be the spotlight of your celebration. The color comes from the black Dutch cocoa and not from any artificial food coloring. As a baker I find very hard to get the perfect black color for a cake or frosting using less processed ingredients. Definitely is the perfect black color, so I’m calling it the little black cake decorated as the witch landing.
Black is my favorite color so I was so excited to test this recipe and I wasn’t disappointed at all. The cake turned out so moist, fluffy, perfect black and so scrumptious. It tastes similar to an Oreo cookie. You can use this recipe for any occasion that you need or want to make a black cake. I promise you won’t be disappointed. For the frosting, you can add a few drops of black food coloring but it’s not necessary at all because after you whip all the ingredients and let it set, the black will darken.
