20 Minute Dinner: Tarragon Salmon with Israeli Couscous

  I sometimes feel drained from work that I am toooo tired to think of what we are having for dinner.  However, sometimes when I feel rushed is when I start making up a recipe as I go.  Here is quick dinner idea that turned out well.  I used frozen Alaskan salmon that can be […]

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fried-Zucchini Spaghetti

I recently realized that I have some commonalities with Gwyneth Paltrow. Maybe not the height, or the beauty, or her acting ability, but I am happy to admit that we both  enjoy food/cooking, we value family and kids, we appreciate fashion, love blogging and last but not least watching Glee – actually probably my favorite […]

Healthy & Stylish Papaya, Shrimp and Soba Salad

Soba noodles?  Say what?  How’s this stylish?  What are they anyway?  Soba noodles are made from buckwheat and are much more beneficial to your health than wheat pasta.  I even think they are tastier than wheat pasta, but I will let you be the judge.  You can find out more information in the eHow article  […]

What to do with leftovers? Make Mushroom Linguine with Olive-Tomato Tapenade and Parsley Sauce

Do you remember the Parsley Garlic Butter Sauce from my previous post?   I was able to sneak it into my pasta dish and make another meal for my family.  I was not planning on sharing the recipe, but my husband really liked it and the only way I will remember to make it again is […]

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

At times I feel like I have become vegetarian when I really have not.  I think I have just become more conscious on my meat intake.    I am not sure if this is a temporary state, but on the upside  I am trying to expose my family into eating more grains, beans, veggies and exploring […]

Red Lentil Tomato Bulgur/Burghul Pilaf

Knock. Knock… Hope you have not left.  I missed all of you very much.  It’s been too long since my last post.  I have lots of reasons why it took me too long to come back… shopping, holidays, New Year, family, kids, work, stress, laziness, sadness, confusion… should I say more? Happy New Year even […]

Thai Red Curry Shrimp Linguine for my Hub!

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. This recipe was created years ago when I had an “accident” in the kitchen.  I don’t quite remember how but something went wrong following […]

Red Lentil and Bulgur Balls (Kebe/Kufte) with Mint Tomato Salad

This was a quick weeknight meal… I decided to make this last night because it was quick, kid-friendly, healthy and most important tasty. But before I share the recipe, I want to share with you some Halloween artwork. As I was uploading my recent pics from our camera, I came across some photos of my […]

Celebrating Autumn – Butternut Squash and Vanilla Risotto

I love butternut squash and I look for ways to incorporate them in my food preparation.  When I came across the risotto recipe in Giada’s book, Giada’s Kitchen, I was intrigued by the addition of vanilla bean and really wanted to try it.   I added the recipe to my recent shopping list and thought […]
