Pork Loin with Balsamic Fig Compote and Cracked Basil Potatoes over Arugula

This was our weeknight dinner when my husband’s sister, Isabelle told me she was coming over to see us.   I was inspired to make a dinner with figs from my Trader Joe’s visit at my work lunch.  It does involve many steps, but it’s not very time consuming. I don’t feel like writing a whole […]

My Blog’s 1st Bday/Chicken & Mushroom Stuffed Puff Cups/Giveaway

My dear friends… It’s been quite some time since my last post.  I really missed you and I am really sorry for not blogging for some time – I just could not make myself come back.  I have been having some personal problems and could not leave them aside.  Hopefully everything will slowly settle down […]

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fried-Zucchini Spaghetti

I recently realized that I have some commonalities with Gwyneth Paltrow. Maybe not the height, or the beauty, or her acting ability, but I am happy to admit that we both  enjoy food/cooking, we value family and kids, we appreciate fashion, love blogging and last but not least watching Glee – actually probably my favorite […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
