Grilled Sheep Tails – please do not be freaked out. They are beyond delicious. Of course if they are cooked the correct way.

Greek Lamb Chops

Greek Lamb Chops with Mint Pesto – quick stix and dinner is served. We had Greek Lamb Chops with Mint Pesto and golden oven-baked potato wedges for dinner last night.

Caprese Bombs

These Caprese Bombs are just the bomb, pardon the pun. Caprese Bombs made with 5 ingredients, I kid you not. The recipe makes 20 and they flew off the plate before I could take proper pictures. The kids (and dad) absolutely loved them. A traditional Caprese Salad is a salad made with fresh tomatoes, fresh […]

Veggie Burgers, kind of a contradiction, because we always associate burgers with beef, pork or lamb. These Veggie Burgers could stand tall next to any of the above meaty burgers. It is packed with crunch, flavor and not only is a delicious, but it is much cheaper than meat. You can chop and change the […]

Roasted Cauliflower Salad

This Roasted Cauliflower Salad is everything a salad should be…….. in winter! My roasted Cauliflower salad is robust, packed with flavor and colorful.

Labneh Pots are so each to make, the kids can dot it. These Labneh Pots can be any flavor you want them to be, but I just love Red Pepper Pesto and Basil Pesto, so those were my flavors of choice. The white, red and green colors also look beautiful in the glass jars. In […]

Mung Bean Falafels

Mung Bean Falafels are just so much better than the chickpea version. These green Mung Bean Falafels are so funky and I loved the crunchy texture. I loved the process, because you have to sprout the mung beans first, but that is the coolest thing ever.  So one packet of mung beans yield enough for […]
