Mediterranean Spaghetti with Eggplants, Broccoli & Garlic-herb Tomatoes topped with Feta Cheese

I love pasta! I love it for its convenience, versatility and friendliness.   I can have it pretty much every day, but I try to limit to once a week.  If I am running low on time, or when I am trying to save items from the fridge, pasta can act as my savior.  If you’re […]

Barley Yogurt Soup with Lentils, Chickpeas and Za’atar Oil

I do not like repeating dishes… but at times I do take special requests.  Since my hubby just celebrated his birthday I thought to surprise him with his favorite pasta dish.

Childhood Fave: French Green Beans, Fennel and Tomato Stew – Fassoulia
