Corn Soup with Harissa and Cream

I am sure most of you have heard of Heidi Swanson and her famous blog 101cookbooks.com, but if you have not, it’s worth  taking a browsing trip to her land of beautiful photos and delicious recipes.  This is a recipe she had posted recently and it looked so great that I had to make it.  […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Butternut Squash Soup with Lime, Sage and Parmesan Pita Croutons

Mediterranean Spaghetti with Eggplants, Broccoli & Garlic-herb Tomatoes topped with Feta Cheese

I love pasta! I love it for its convenience, versatility and friendliness.   I can have it pretty much every day, but I try to limit to once a week.  If I am running low on time, or when I am trying to save items from the fridge, pasta can act as my savior.  If you’re […]

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 […]

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 […]

Panini: Caramelized Mushrooms & Onions with Armenian Braided String Cheese

I happened to be at an Armenian bakery last week to pick up some dessert for my kids’ doctor.  I wanted to thank her for her last month’s generosity –by taking her office some sweets and to thank her for treating my cold last month free of charge.  Can you believe it?  She did not […]
