Chicken in Tandoori BBQ Sauce with Scallion Blini

Here is a fun way of having chicken – with tandoori bbq sauce.  I was inspired to make this dish because my hubby loves tandoori chicken.  I am glad I made it since he really enjoyed the flavors of the sauce on the chicken.  My only comment is that you can totally skip the blinis [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

My Mom’s Favorite: Mango Chutney, Prosciutto and Paneer Garlic Naan Pizza

Many of you know what an avid fan I was watching the Next Food Network Star this season.  Originally rooting for a friend to win, after her departure I then became totally and madly in love with Aarti Sequeria, known as Aarti Paarti.  Her Indian inspired dishes with a twist have given me a new [...]

New Milestones & Aarti’s Green Minty Curry Chicken

My girls started school few weeks ago and I have been meaning to write a post to share their experience. My feelings and emotions have been exciting and stressful… Exciting… because it’s a new year that celebrates a new milestone. Stressful… because Ariana (my 5 yr old) broke her arm few days before starting kindergarten. [...]

Me….? It’s all good with family, shopping and tea.

An update to everyone that was helping me advance on Project Food Blog… I have some good news and sad news.  Good news:  I met so much more foodies such as myself participating in the challenge.  Sad news: I did not make it far. I will be routing for my friends throughout the competition.  I [...]

Family Beach Picnic BBQ & Perfectly Prepared Baby Back Ribs

I took a little break last week to spend some time with my beautiful girls, family and friends. Even though  I did  not have enough time to blog, I  definitely found time to cook and eat. I will try to find the time to catch up and post some of my recipes and food ventures soon. In [...]

My New Late Night Snack: Smoky & Spicy Pepitas/Pumpkin Seeds

Do you ever find yourself opening your cupboards, or refrigerator looking for something that would help you pass your “hunger” stage? Well, that seems to happen to me often and usually I try to munch on something healthy. Since I am a moody eater, I can crave either  salty, sweet, or fresh things to much [...]

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 [...]
