Kid Friendly Tasks: Measuring Spices

We’ve been doing a lot of round the world cooking again and this time I’ve been making hummus to go as a side dish to everything. This hummus is so good that even my kids will eat it. I like to give it to them as a snack with veggies or pretzels to eat after school. If you want smoother, richer tasting hummus you can up the oil from what I have listed. This will not have that truly smooth consistency. The water from the chickpeas stands in for the oil a bit in making it taste smoother, but doesn’t coat the tongue quite like oil would. It does, however, have far fewer calories. I think it’s almost as good.

Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Serves: 4

Kid Friendly Tasks: Adding Herbs

This is one of those recipes I use all the time, but never bothered to write down up until now. I make just as much as I need for one salad on the rare occasions we eat salad and then proceed not to worry about it. As all ranch dressing are, it’s creamy and makes a great dip for just about anything. The good thing about making your own is that you can tweak the fat content by using low fat sour cream and mayo (buttermilk is naturally low fat).
