Roasted Vegetables with Tomato Pulp and Avocado Herb Mayo

I prepared this for a weekend lunch when I wanted to use up all the veggies in my fridge.  The  avocado cream from my kibbeh post and the cooked tomato pulp (remains from a tomato sauce that I had prepared from the night before) were a great accompaniment to serve with some toasted pita pockets.  [...]

Pork Loin with Balsamic Fig Compote and Cracked Basil Potatoes over Arugula

This was our weeknight dinner when my husband’s sister, Isabelle told me she was coming over to see us.   I was inspired to make a dinner with figs from my Trader Joe’s visit at my work lunch.  It does involve many steps, but it’s not very time consuming. I don’t feel like writing a whole [...]

Cauliflower & Cucumber Salad

  I made this salad  as a a side  when I prepared lentils pilaf  known as “Mujedereh.”  Sorry don’t have any pics of the Mujadereh  since I did not take any pictures the first time I made this…  I will share it one of these days.   We normally make cabbage salad on the side [...]

Aarti’s Lamb Kofte/Kofto Kebabs with Pomegranate Glaze and Cucumber Yogurt Sauce (Tzaziki)

I have been wanting to make this recipe since last year’s season of Food Network Star aired.  In this episode, Aarti’s challenge was to prepare a dish for a culinary legend to  re-invent a dish of the best thing he ever ate.  Unfortunately, I do not recall the name of the culinary legend.  All I [...]

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 [...]

Food Revolution & Jamie Oliver’s Strawberry Salad with Prosciutto, Halloumi and Romaine

Before I share my recipe I wanted to let you know how much I adore and support Jamie Oliver.  I  am very excited about his 2nd season that will be premiering this week.  His Food Revolution takes place in Los Angeles… in my city.  “So what?” you may say…  Well since I do reside in [...]

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  [...]

Herb Garlic Bread, Eggs, and Buttery Potatoes

Okay… this is the last of the Parsley Garlic Butter Sauce from my Turkey dinner post. I  have been able to use it for a yummy pasta dish and now some great tasting garlic bread.  Our family can’t have enough of carbs and we all love some good garlic bread.  The buttery herb sauce was [...]

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 [...]
