What to do with leftovers? Make Mushroom Linguine with Olive-Tomato Tapenade and Parsley Sauce

Do you remember the Parsley Garlic Butter Sauce from my previous post?   I was able to sneak it into my pasta dish and make another meal for my family.  I was not planning on sharing the recipe, but my husband really liked it and the only way I will remember to make it again is […]

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 […]

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 […]

Quick & Easy Mini Pizza Buns!

Today was another day that I had to rush dinner after work.  I opened the fridge and started thinking what can I make that can be quick and family friendly?

Since most nights I don’t get home from work until 6:30/7:00 pm, I usually try making my dinners the night before for the next day.  However, there are also nights that I am too beat, or lazy to be prepping dinner at 9:30pm.  I rather be blogging, reading, or watching some television.

My Craving Satisfaction – Grilled Artichokes with Basil Garlic Dip

I am obsessed on having Fire Roasted Artichokes with  Spicy Vinaigrette & Garlic Dip every time I am at  Cheesecake Factory.  I feel like I mostly go there to get me some artichokes.  It is offered as an appetizer, but there has been times that I have just ordered a whole plate just for me.  […]

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.  […]

Julia’s Fresh Garden Tomatoes & My Cooking Adventure

I recently gained a beautiful sister-in-law from Ukraine.  She really enjoys cooking and gardening, so it’s a plus when I can share my interests with her.  She was sweet and thoughtful enough to save some of her beautiful grown tomatoes for me.  I think that’s a sign that she really likes me… at least I […]

Also, […]
