Are you the type of person who always skips breakfast? Or, maybe you go for the sugary cereals instead? Allow me to introduce you to my current favorite healthy breakfast. The best part is that you can  enjoy it without feeling guilty!

Restaurant-Worthy Falafel

Restaurant-Worthy Falafel

I’ve had a lot of requests for a good falafel recipe, so I’m finally sharing my favorite falafel recipe with you! Yes, it’s even better than the one I shared in my Mom’s Authentic Assyrian Recipes cookbook.

Tahini Sauce

Tahini Sauce

If you’ve never had tahini sauce, you are in for a treat! It’s a very popular condiment in the Middle East. It is usually served alongside falafel, but that’s not where the possibilities end!

Two Ingredient Tahini Paste

Two Ingredient Tahini Paste

Are you familiar with tahini paste? If you are of Middle Eastern decent, then no doubt the answer is yes. If not, you might be wondering just what is tahini, anyways?

Semolina Cake (Nammoura)

Semolina Cake (Nammoura)

Most Assyrians call this cake “nammoura,” while others refer to it by it’s Arabic name, “basbousa.” Greeks call it “ravani,” and other Middle Eastern regions refer to it as “harissa.”

Pomegranate and Quinoa Salad

Pomegranate and Quinoa Salad

A couple of days ago I was invited by a friend to come pick some pomegranates off of her tree. Ask anyone that really knows me what some of my favorite things are and they should name some of the following; cooking, rain, Mr. Bean, working out, and picking fruit from friend’s fruit trees!

Easy Beef or Lamb Shawarma

Easy Beef or Lamb Shawarma

Shawarma is meat that is stacked vertically on a spit and cooked slowly over many hours. Since most of us don’t have a spit handy or hours to cook, I’m sharing a tasty alternative.

Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Sun-Dried Tomatoes

One of my favorite things about summer is growing my vegetable garden. This year I had an abundance of tomatoes. You might have seen the recipe I shared a few weeks ago for pickled green tomatoes, which by the way were delicious!

Preserved Grape Leaves

Preserved Grape Leaves

If you love grape dolma (stuffed grape leaves), then listen up! Store-bought grape leaves are gross! They are way too tough, and usually larger than they should be.

Lemony Greek Dolmathes with Toasted Pine Nuts

Lemony Greek Dolmathes with Toasted Pine Nuts

I’ve always loved grape leaf dolma…Middle Eastern style, that is! I used to think that I disliked Greek dolmathes. Our family spent three months in Greece when I was nine years old, while waiting for our papers to immigrate to the U. S.
