Apricot Pistachio Cupcakes to Welcome Baby Alicia!

I have a great news to share with everyone.  My one and only brother Jean had his first baby girl this weekend.   I became an auntie to a beautiful baby girl Alicia.  She is  so tiny but yet so perfect and precious in every way.  To welcome baby Alicia home, I decided to make some […]

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  […]

Turkey Breast with Parsley Garlic Butter Sauce and Roasted Sweet Apples

Turkey for Spring?  What am I thinking? Not sure… I guess I got inspired by Taste of Beirut’s recipe for Apple Chutney that she posted last week and thought of the turkey that was sitting in my fridge.  I instantly thought of pairing the turkey with apples.  Why not chutney?  I did not want to […]

Persian Saffron Jeweled Rice with Dried Assorted Fruits and Nuts

On my previous post I also said that I will be sharing my Jeweled Rice recipe.  I just love having this rice for the holidays,  so I enjoy making it during this time of year. It’s the perfect side and the perfect way of dressing and making the holidays feel a little more special.  The […]

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

I was tasked on preparing a beet salad and jeweled Persian rice for my mom’s Thanksgiving party.  I will share the jeweled rice on another post… My mom  said all I had to do for the beet salad is combine cooked  beets  and pomegranates and top them with walnuts, lemon juice and olive oil.  This […]

Cranberry Sauce with Ground Cloves, Apples, and Orange Liquor

This Thanksgiving I decided to change up the usual cranberry sauce by adding just a few more ingredients such as lemon, orange, apples, cloves and orange  liquor. I think the combination of the added ingredients helps to bring down the bitterness of the cranberries and makes a perfect side to serve up with Turkey.

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 […]

Smoked Gouda Cheese, Figs and Crisp Onion Phyllo Pie

Recently Seneca Snacks asked me to develop a recipe  using their Crisp Onions for a Super Bowl Entertaining Challenge.  Since I love onions so much, I wanted to not only try their crispy onions but also go for the challenge.  And guess what?  I was the 2nd runner up on their challenge. I wanted to […]

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.  […]
