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 […]

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 […]

My Mom’s Red Kidney Bean Soup with Baked Pita Chips

Before I start with the next wave of holiday festivities,  I have to think a little about my eating habits.  I need to save up some of my pigging out between Christmas and New Year.  This soup is just the perfect choice for the season.  It’s super simple, healthy and super tasty… oh not to […]

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.

Quick & Healthy Fava Beans, Chickpeas, Olives with Tomatoes

I love cooking with chickpeas.  This dish is healthy, kid-friendly, quick and tasty and very filling. Everyone in the family loved it!  It is perfect for lunch – filled with lots of  flavor, fiber and energy!  The best part is that you can make this anytime you want a meatless dish, or do not have […]

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

Growing up, I was a very picky… I mean a VERY picky eater.  Looking back, I feel like I made my mom struggle so much to make sure I get proper nutrition in me.  However, I do remember loving her green been stew, also known as Fassoulia.  My favorite part of the dish was the […]

Baked Costa Rican Style Tilapia with Pineapples, Black Beans and Rice

You might be wondering what does a Costa Rican Tilapia taste like… I was too, when I saw this recipe posted on Food Network’s site by Ingrid Hoffmann. (host of the Food Network show, Simply Delicioso) Every 3 months, my hairdresser cousin comes over on a weeknight, when my kids are already asleep to get […]

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, […]

Spicy Red Lentil Soup with Magic Potion

I chose to make this soup for its simplicity, interesting ingredient list and spices that I already carry in my pantry.   It is another recipe from Aarti Sequeria of the Next Food Network Star.  The soup is not only  healthy, but it’s full of unusual  flavors that come together so nicely. When I began […]

Zesty Zucchini Ribbons, Artichokes & Mixed Beans with Wheat Fettuccine

I was on a rush Saturday lunch-time to get something quick, but healthy in front of my kids.  This pasta came to be a savior as I decided to pull things from my fridge and start prepping while my pasta came to a boil.  Not much thinking was involved, except to put the ingredients that […]
