  • Spicy Sun-dried Tomato Pasta

    Spicy Sun-dried Tomato Pasta

    Here we go again, another quick, and easy pasta dish. This spicy sun-dried tomato pasta is a little sweet, a little spicy, and a versatile sauce to keep in the books. I originally made this sauce to go over pan-seared salmon over rice and lentils. It was to die for, but the second I tasted it I knew it would have been a shame not to put on pasta. I have to admit, this one is similar to my Spicy…

    Pickled Red Cabbage Salad

    Pickled Red Cabbage Salad

    I grew up eating red cabbage and rice. That is all, red cabbage, white rice, in a Middle Eastern cumin lemon dressing. I knew it was kind of weird when I made it for my boyfriend, now husband, 12 years ago and he was not on board with the combo. There was something about the dish though that kept you going back for more, maybe it was the fresh pickle on the cabbage, or the fact that the rice soaks…

    Harissa Tomato Roasted Farro Bowl

    Harissa Tomato Roasted Farro Bowl

    Fact: Bowls are best. Okay maybe not a fact, but if I am given an option to eat something out of a bowl vs a plate, I am going with the bowl. This harissa tomato roasted farro bowl is hearty, filling, with just a touch of heat. What is Farro? If you have never heard of farro before it is a protein and fiber packed whole grain. Similar to spelt or barely, when cooked thoroughly farro is chewy yet tender.…

    Sesame Cornflake Chicken Cutlets

    Sesame Cornflake Chicken Cutlets

    Guys… crispy sesame cornflake chicken cutlets. That’s all, post done. Seriously though this fried chicken cutlet recipe is a great one to add to the list. I grew up eating pan fried chicken cutlets this way, and after testing different types of breading varying from Italian bread crumbs, panko, and even homemade breadcrumbs this is the ONE. Also called chicken schnitzel, these cutlets are great on their own or even better in a sandwich. Why Sesame Seeds? The sesame seeds…

    Creamy Baba Ganoush

    Creamy Baba Ganoush

    Move over hummus, another Middle Eastern dip deserves the spotlight! I hate to think that some of you have only heard about baba ganoush because of Wedding Crashers, but the reality is it just doesn’t get enough credit. Before I go any further though I need to admit that I dislike tahini. I cringe when I think of it. I don’t like when hummus has a strong tahini taste, and do not get me started with tahini dressings. This creamy…
