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 […]

10 Minute Salad: Minty Cucumbers with Feta Cheese

This is a super fun and easy salad to make.  I think it’s perfect when it’s hot outside and you don’t really want to go near the oven.

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 […]

My Very Own Taco Bowl Salad with Grilled Chicken and Orange-Lime Dressing

Yes, these taco bowls were crafted by me.  Want to know my secret?  Not so hard to do, even a 2 year old can help you make these…. not considering the oven part… but yes, they are that simple. I found this recipe many many ions ago, when I was still very much of baby […]

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  […]

Beets, Pomegranates and Carrot Layered Salad with Champagne Simple Syrup Vinaigrette

Pulled Pork with Mango BBQ Sauce + Apple Peanut Slaw Salad + Sweet Roasted Yam Fries

I invited my Mom for dinner over two weekends ago and decided to make Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Mango BBQ Sauce.  The reason I picked out this dish was because we both saw it  air on Aarti Paarti and were salivating over how good the pulled pork was.   I thought it would be fun […]

Indian and Mediterranean Bulgur Salad with Sweet & Spicy Mango

Lately I have been in the mood for trying new flavors and ingredients.  Although, I enjoy Italian, French, Mexican, Spanish… well, what I mean is anything that tastes good…   I have been really fascinated by Middle Eastern/Armenian  (my background) and Indian cuisine.  This dish is a combination of flavors that combine the two together.  […]

Julia’s Fresh Garden Tomatoes & My Cooking Adventure

I recently gained a beautiful sister-in-law from Ukraine.  She really enjoys cooking and gardening, so it’s a plus when I can share my interests with her.  She was sweet and thoughtful enough to save some of her beautiful grown tomatoes for me.  I think that’s a sign that she really likes me… at least I […]

Bobby Flay’s Chinese Chicken Salad with Chile Pea-mond Dressing

In celebration of summer, I am in the mood for salads more than usual.  I wanted to make a Chinese Chicken Salad and Bobby Flay’s version with Red Chile Peanut Dressing sounded like a great idea.  I really was attracted to  the combination of the napa cabbage and the  lettuce leaves in the recipe. Also, […]
