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.


I love recipes that combine oats and coconut.I know that it is not one of the first flavor combinations that come to mind. But I have tried it in  biscotti, cookies, granola and every time the coconut transforms the oatmeal from good old earthy and boring to nutty and interesting.

My son loves pancakes! If it was up to him we will have them every morning! and although I do have quite a few pancake recipes ranging from vegan pancakes to carrot cake pancakes and Arabic Atayef pancakes, I am always on the look out for new and interesting pancake recipes.  Dutch baby pancakes have been on my list of recipes to try for quite some time.

Dutch baby pancakes, sometimes called a German pancakes, or a Dutch puff, are  sweet baked pancakes that are very similar to a popovers. They are derived from the German pfannkuchen and they are made with eggs, flour, sugar and milk, and usually seasoned with vanilla and cinnamon. Occasionally fruit or another flavoring is also added.

Despite not having any leavening agents, they do puff up beautifully in the oven, watching them bake is really fun, especially for an excited, hungry 5 year old ūüôā Sadly they do deflate quickly when you take them out of the oven
