SkinnyPop wine and popcorn pairing guide

I am so glad Scandal is back on TV and there is one thing that Olivia Pope and I have in common other than our love for classic style, it’s the love for wine and popcorn. I have started to make it a little tradition of mine to record  episodes of Scandal and watch it Friday night with a bowl of popcorn and a glass of wine. Trying to figure out the best wine and popcorn pairing can be a little tricky so the people at Skinny pop have made it very easy to decide with this graphic below.

So here is how this lovely guide works. First, choose your favorite popcorn, I love SkinnyPop’s original flavor. Next step is to look at the guide for the best wine pairing for your popcorn and follow the line that links the wine and popcorn flavor. In my case since I am going with the original flavor It shows me that I can pair it with Chardonnay or Malbec. Being a big fan of red wine, I opted for the Malbec.

Garlic and herb hummus

 Yesterday while watching The Kitchen on the food network channel, they had this interesting segment where they would ask if it is better to buy some foods at the store or make them at home.They tried a few things like salsa, barbecue sauce and the one that caught my eye was the home made hummus. I have always wanted to make this dish at home and after I saw how easy it was I knew I had to try it. 


Hummus originated from the middle east and is simply a food dip or spread made from mashed chickpeas mixed with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. This healthy dish makes a perfect dip for tortilla or pita chips, veggies and can be incorporated into meals in various ways.                        
Ingredients 
1 can chick peas
1 can cannellini beans
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tbsp fresh dill
1 tbsp cilantro
 2 tbsp olive oil 
salt and freshly ground pepper
Directions
Puree’ all ingredients in a large blender, add more olive oil if mixture is too thick. Store in a air tight container and refrigerate. Mine lasted for a little over a week.
