Wait until you taste my German American potato salad! It’s a perfect marriage between German potato salad and classic American potato salad. I developed the tasty recipe over many years of experimenting.
Now that Summer is upon us, I find myself not being very hungry. Or maybe it’s just too hot to be cooped up in the kitchen cooking, so I convince myself that I’m not that hungry?
Stop the presses! Today I’m sharing a recipe for a grain that’s healthier than rice, and has a delicious nutty flavor! That grain is called “bulgur.” Bulgur is not a commonly used word in the English language. I guess for a good reason, since it is Turkish in origin.
Edamame Dill Rice is my spin on a popular Assyrian rice traditionally made with lima beans and dill. This rice is served alongside chicken and meat kabobs, or eaten by itself as a vegetarian dish.
This was the first sourdough bread recipe I ever came up with. I loved the idea of Jalapeño Cheddar Sourdough Bread because as I’ve mentioned before, everyone in my family loves spicy food. The cheese is just an added bonus!
So, you might be wondering, what’s with the name? Are we making Spanish rice or Mexican rice? In truth, I had a hard time deciding what to name this recipe. You see, I wanted those searching for both names to be able to find this […]
If you had told me a few years ago that one day I’d be making my own amba (pickled mango) I wouldn’t have believed you. It’s just not a recipe that any of my family members have prepared before. Amba was purchased, not made. But guess what? Here I am, killing it!
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, maybe you’ve noticed that I LOVE rice! If I was going to be stranded on an island (and didn’t care about gaining weight) rice would easily be my food of choice.
Rice, a staple in the Assyrian diet, is served as a side to most meals. Whether it’s present alongside stew or kababs, or as the main meal, as in Biryani, somehow we manage to sneak it into the menu.
For the past year, I’ve been trying to perfect sourdough bread baking. In January, I started my own sourdough starter. Since then, I have baked many a loaf of bread, trying to get it right.
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!
Although everyone is familiar with hummus these days, I remember not too long ago when I would take hummus to a potluck and friends had no clue what it was. Hummus has been a staple in the Middle East for hundreds of years!
You might be asking yourself, “pickled turnips? What exactly is a turnip?” Well, for one thing, it’s a root vegetable, and belongs to the Brassicaceae family.
This simple, yet tasty recipe always reminds me of my mom, I guess a lot of Assyrian dishes do. She made this rice on a regular basis, especially when she was fasting from meat and dairy.
Did you know that jalapeño poppers are very easy to make? If you didn’t, stick around, I’ll teach you everything I know. If you’ve ever been on a low carb diet, you know how easy it is to get bored eating the same things over […]
