Kubba Hamouth (Meat Dumpling Soup)

Kubba Hamouth (Meat Dumpling Soup)

Kubba Hamouth is my favorite Assyrian soup. “Kubba” is the name of the meat-stuffed “dumplings,” while “Hamouth” means “sour.” Kubba comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes. It’s also prepared in many ways.

Split Pea Soup

Split Pea Soup

Fall is the perfect time for ham and split pea soup. It’s warm, creamy, and oh-so-filling. The next time you bake a ham, be sure to save the bone so you can give this recipe a try.

Kicked Up Chicken Salad

Kicked Up Chicken Salad

I haven’t always been a fan of chicken salad, that is until I had some delicious chicken salad at a potluck a few years ago. After the potluck, I came straight home and tried to recreate the recipe.

Low Carb Zucchini Lasagna

Low Carb Zucchini Lasagna

A friend recently gave me some HUGE  zucchini that her husband grew in their garden. In the past, zucchini bread would have been my first choice. Now that I’m doing my best to eat healthier and follow a low carb diet, I decided to go with low carb zucchini lasagna instead.
