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 […]

Cauliflower & Cucumber Salad

  I made this salad  as a a side  when I prepared lentils pilaf  known as “Mujedereh.”  Sorry don’t have any pics of the Mujadereh  since I did not take any pictures the first time I made this…  I will share it one of these days.   We normally make cabbage salad on the side […]

20 Minute Dinner: Tarragon Salmon with Israeli Couscous

  I sometimes feel drained from work that I am toooo tired to think of what we are having for dinner.  However, sometimes when I feel rushed is when I start making up a recipe as I go.  Here is quick dinner idea that turned out well.  I used frozen Alaskan salmon that can be […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
