Recipe: Spicy Pumpkin HummusThis unusual take on hummus has an autumnal vibe. It’s a deliciously different way to make hummus.

Roasted Red Beet Hummus http://buff.ly/1scGmi5

One of my favorite recipes! While I know some would argue that anything other than chickpeas is NOT hummus, I like to explore the addition of other ingredients. Red beets are the perfect one! This hummus is tangy, earthy, and big on flavor. Perfect for pita chips or a sandwich.

In 2007, Princess Maria Gabriella of Savoy made the decision to auction off, many of the pieces of jewellery she inherited from her mother to pay a tax bill and maintain the family home in Geneva.

Top lot in the auction is a diamond tiara made by Faberge in 1895, which is valued at between £390,000 and £600,000, but is expected to fetch up to three times that amount. It contains rare tear-drop diamonds given by Tsar Alexander to the Empress Josephine. 

Belgian-born Queen Marie’s wedding gift from her parents - a matching diamond-and-turquoise bracelet, earrings and brooch set - is also among the 41 pieces on offer at Christie’s on June 13. 

Sixty-seven-year-old Princess Maria Gabriella inherited the jewels - and other items, including bed linen and musical instruments - from her mother, who reigned for only 35 days in 1946 prior to the abolishion of the monarchy. 

The princess said in an interview this week that in accepting the precious collection – something which her three siblings had declined to do – she also became liable for a bill of over a million euros in inheritance tax. “I decided to shoulder the honours and the burden,” said Princess Maria, who plans to keep only a few things from the collection, including books from the library of the Royal Palace of Racconigi, and a desk that belonged to her mother.

seriously, Maria-José had some fabolous jewels, such a shame that it no longer belongs to the family. which is your favourite in this selection?
