    Eat the World is hosted each month by Evelyne of CulturEatz.  Evelyne invites us to visit the culture and foods of a different country each month.  This month she chose Libya.  Let's take a look at what my fellow Eat the World members are sharing.......

    Libyan Cheese Dip

    Libya is a North African country that is known mostly for it's abundance of oil reserves.  This has Libya one of the fastest growing countries with the highest per capita income in the area.

    One of the best known foods from Libya is Shakshuka.  I love shakshuka and make it quite often.  I have made it with Eggplant and I have made it with Beets.  While researching recipes for this event I found a Green Shakshuka that is now on my to make list so stay tuned for that.

    Then I came across this recipe for cheese dip and knew it would make a perfect appetizer to bring to a gathering I was attending in honor of my friend, Kirsten's, heavenly birthday.
