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 [...]

Greek Style Okra, Onion, and Tomato Stew with Kalamata Olives
