How fun is this Halloween party idea?!Ghoulish Graveyard Dip
Halloween is the perfect excuse to indulge that creative streak and present a deconstructed version of crudités with dip. The dip is a take on hummus, using cannellini beans in the place of chick peas, with subtle depth of flavors provided by vomFASS’ delicate Spanish virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar.
Ingredients (makes about 2 cups)
1/4 cup vomFASS Don Carlos Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 cloves Garlic, diced
1 T. Fresh thyme, chopped fine
1 T. Fresh rosemary, chopped fine
2 cans Cannellini beans, drained & rinsed
2 T. vomFASS Vinagre Viejo
1/2 t. Salt
1/4 t. Pepper
1 T. vomFASS Don Carlos Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1. In a small skillet, heat 1/4 cup of the olive oil. Add the fresh herbs and garlic, sautéing gently until fragrant or about 1-2 minutes.
2. In the bowl of a food processor, add beans, vinegar, salt & pepper and the olive oil mixture. Pulse to a smooth consistency. Adjust seasoning. Drizzle with 1 T. olive oil.

* Vegetables used in skeleton: Curly lettuce; cauliflower; cherry tomatoes; stuffed olives; carrots; red & orange pepper; broccoli; zucchini; radishes; celery; mushrooms; cucumber; sugar snap peas. Have fun!

Finally, I'm figuring out how to not over cook tuna! Sautéd over high heat just a couple minutes per side in Ginger Sesame Oil and Viola's Orange-Chili Sea Salt. Made a pan sauce - reduced heat, toast black sesame seeds in the pan after removing tuna. Add white wine, small splash of Calamansi Balsam Vinegar and liquid aminos. After cooking a minute, add a tbls of butter and stir until melted. Asparagus was tossed in Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Garlic Pepper Whole Blend and roasted in oven at 400 degrees for 10 min. I have to say, it was fabulous! ... See MoreSee Less

Health benefits - FACT OR FICTION? 
From a blog entry on WinePair: 
One of the main ways your body is able to fight off a cold is by getting enough sleep so that you’re well rested. While you could turn to Nyquil to help you with that, a hot toddy works just as well, and a bit more naturally, at relieving your symptoms so you can rock off to sleep – plus you won’t have that hazy Nyquil hangover. For decades people have used the hot toddy as a natural remedy for easing all those aches and pains that are associated with the common cold, and for the most part, it was assumed that it was one of those natural remedies, like chicken soup, that works because your brain thinks it works, not because there is actual science behind it. But as it turns out, a hot toddy is actually pretty great, from a scientific perspective, at soothing your cold.

The reason we like drugs like Nyquil is because they not only ease our congestion, they help us fall asleep, and it turns out the ingredients in a hot toddy do the exact same thing. Not only that, but the alcohol inside the whiskey also helps fight off infection and the growth of microorganisms!

Whiskey is a great decongestant — the alcohol dilates the blood vessels, making it easier for your mucus membranes to deal with the infection — and, combined with the herbal tea, squeeze of honey, lemon, and the warm steam emanating from the drink, you have the perfect concoction for helping to clear up your cold symptoms. And by the time you finish the drink, you will be breathing a bit easier, and the alcohol will also start working its magic in the sleep department, making you just groggy enough so you can get some much needed shuteye.

As with any remedy that incorporates booze as a main ingredient, there is such a thing as too many hot toddies if your goal is to actually feel better. While the alcohol in one drink is great for falling asleep and feeling refreshed, one too many and the sleep you receive won’t be that refreshing at all, and could cause you to wake up the next morning with worse symptoms than you had before. So stick to one, and you should be good to go.
