I have a confession to make: I hate fresh coriander!
I know there are people who love it in salads, in soups, sauteed with garlic but I am definitely not one of them. I am the one you see at the herb stand rubbing leaves of parsley between my fingertips, smelling them just to make sure I did not pick up coriander by mistake lol.
For the past 4 months I have been keeping a secret from you but now is finally the time to share it. If you follow me on facebook you probably already know :) Two of my dear friends and I have been working on an e-magazine: Darna magazine. The first issue was published on June 10th and you can read it on issuu.com
The first Monday of the month means it is time for our secret recipe club reveal. I always look forward to sharing my recipe choice with the group. Keeping a secret for a month, sneaking around your assigned blog, looking for inspiration is fun but sharing your creation with the others and finding out what the person who was assigned to my blog made is the part I love the most.
I love cauliflower.I know many people hear the word cauliflower and turn up their noses but believe me, if you are one of those, you are seriously missing out. Cauliflower on its own can be bland, I agree, but with the right spices and herbs it becomes irresistible! If you don’t believe me, try my cauliflower fritters or makloubeh or cauliflower sushi salad or stop by Sally’s blog and try her amazing cauliflower creation. I can guarantee any of these recipes will ensure that cauliflower will be at the top of your shopping list in no time.

For the month of May, it was my pleasure to host the Daring Cooks challenge
A year ago I hosted my first challenge, at the time, I chose cheese making because it is a wonderful skill to add to your repertoire. This time around I wanted to choose a challenge that represents my own heritage. Something Palestinian, something fun and tasty, something challenging but worth the trouble.
