Although Freekeh (pronounced free-ka or free-k-) has recently joined the “super food” club, it has been popular in the Arabic cuisine for centuries, mainly in the Levantine area and north-east africa. Freekeh is roasted green wheat that is used to make soups, pilafs,salads and stuffing for chicken and poultry. It is one of my favorite ingredients because of its versatility, earthy nutty flavor tones,and of course because of its nutritional value
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 am horribly terribly late in posting my daring cooks and bakers challenges 😦 I make the challenges in time for the reveal but finding the time to sit down and write the post has proven to be an elusive task.So for this week, I am trying to catch up on posting my challenges.
This month, the Daring Cooks challenged us to think inside the box – the icebox, that is! Audax taught us some really cool tips and tricks for stocking our freezers with prepare-ahead meals that can keep our taste buds satisfied even during the busiest of times.
This challenge could not have come at a better time, as we head back to school (I can’t believe how quickly this summer has slipped by) a bit of organization can be a life saver in those busy first few weeks.
In this post I will share a collection of my favorite freezer recipes that I usually prepare around the end of summer to help me ease back into the busy school routine.
This past September, my son started KG1. I was really worried at the time that he would find […]
I love making my own salad dressings, there is so much room for creativity and if you are a little adventurous you will be rewarded with amazing flavor combinations. The best part about making salad dressings as opposed to buying them is that you know exactly what goes into your dressing, no preservatives, no additives and no chemicals you can’t pronounce let alone eat!
A few months ago I wrote about one of my favorite make ahead breakfast recipes. Refrigerator oatmeal in […]
