Eli was in my Third Grade class and was a dedicated chef even then. I remember his grilled nectarines and also the fact that one year for Chanukah he asked for, and received, a really quality bottle of balsamic. Keep on cooking Eli, your hummus looks dee-lish!

This sounds fantastic – I’m trying this next week. Pimientos are usually cherry peppers, rather than red bell peppers, but I’m sure either would work. I might try a mixture since I have both in my fridge.
