Sweet Potato Soup

Why is it that sweet potatoes only get love during Thanksgiving around here? They’re such a healthy food to incorporate into one’s diet and you can make so much more with them than just candied sweet potatoes as a side dish.  Those who know me know how much I love a good bowl of soup- … Read more

Rack of Lamb with Dates & Moroccan Spices

When I first made this dish,  I was apprehensive. I had only ever eaten rack of lamb at restaurants and considered it ‘fancy fare’ for the top chefs to make. Who was I kidding? It’s so easy to make and quite filling, even though it doesn’t look like a lot of meat when compared to … Read more

Banana Date Cups for Iftar

I’m probably not the only one whose favorite time of the day in Ramadan is the time when we break our fast.

Cream of Vegetable Soup

I’m such a soup fan that I could eat it for lunch and dinner as a meal, especially when it’s creamy.

We’ve … Read more

Egg Drop Soup

If you like restaurant-style Chinese Egg Drop Soup, just know that you don’t have to go out to have it- it’s so super easy and quick to make that you don’t even have to stress much over making it. You probably have at least some of the ingredients already, like eggs. Plus, you should always … Read more

Avgolemono Soup with Arborio Rice

I’ve always been interested in Mediterranean soups that are really quite different from soups here, you know the ones that have a bit of a sour taste.
