Appetizers are a great way to entertain a group of ppl. This is a very easy to make dip and it takes very little time to prepare. It is my husbands favorite dip soo far. The pita bread comes out soft and with pockets. You can use the pita bread to make wraps or serve as pita chips for your dip.
For the dip:
1 can of garbanzo beans
1/4cup chopped parsley leafs
3tbs of olive oil
1 tbs of lemon juice
2-4 garlic cloves
For the pita bread:
3 cups of all purpose flour
2tsp of honey or sugar
3tbs of olive oil
2tsp of yeast
1tsp of salt
1 – 1 1/4 cups of warm water
Add all of the components in a blender and blend until the consistency is smoothe.
Pita Bread Instructions:
Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. When all the ingredients are incoporated knead for 10 minutes (important). If using a mixer use the dough hook and mix on low speed for 10min. After mixing cover with plastic or a damp cloth and allow to sit 1 1/2 hrs. until double in size.
After the dough has doubled in size, punch it down and divide it into 8-12 balls. Set aside and allow to rest for 20 min. Meanwhile, pre-heat oven to 400F. Roll out the dough into thin circles. Bake for 6-12 minutes, depending upon how crispy you want your pita bread.

When my husband and I went on a mini 4 day get away to the ocean we found an awesome local sea food restaurant. We ordered some crab cakes, which we loved! As we were eating the crab cakes we were trying to identify the ingredients that were in the crab cakes. I think we were able to figure out most of the ingredients, or add our own. Then we thought, what if we replace the crab meat with white fish fillet and that is exactly what I did upon our return! My husband had a surprise lunch at work and he gobbled up all of these fish cakes in no time. He even said that he likes these better than the crab cakes (but that comment might have been a little biased…after all he is my husband lol). So, try out this recipe for yourself!
For the Fish Cakes:
1 lb of white fish fillet (use any fish)
2 boiled potatoes
1 1/2 white onion
1/2 grated Parmesan cheese
5 cloves of garlic
2 raw eggs
3/4 cup of fresh dill
Plain Bread Crumbs (~3/4cup )
Salt and Pepper
For the sauce:
3 cloves of garlic
5 tbsp of mayo
1 tbsp of Dijon mustard
2-3 tbsp of ketchup
Defrost and then rinse the white fish fillets. Boil or bake two baking potatoes. Chop an onion into quarters. Peel the Garlic. Wash and chop the fresh dill.
Send the white fish fillets, boiled potatoes, onion and garlic through the meat grinder.
Combine all of the ingredients including the eggs in a bowl.
Mix and add more bread crumbs if the mixture is too wet.
Form small round cakes. In a non stick frying pan, fry on both sides on medium low until fully cooked.
For the sauce: combine minced garlic, ketchup, mayo, and mustard. Mix all ingredients.
The sauce will look something like this.
Serve the sauce with the fish cakes, enjoy!
