Spring Green Soup

Nothing says Spring in the culinary world like fresh green produce, although not all of it from this recipe has been grown right in our backyards here in the Midwest. I just love to make a lot of soups when the weather is on the cusp of cold, wet and rainy and just a little … Read more

Winter Citrus & Walnut Salad

On a whim, I recently made a winter salad because the citrus was just so delicious and ripe that I was actually really craving it. I posted a photo on my Instagram page and it was so well-received I thought I better put it up on the website, too. I hope you enjoy it- it’s … Read more

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. With some rustic bread on the side, many soups can be quite filling and are a great way to feed a big family, usually by adding more water/cream/broth to easily increase the amount. 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. I’ve found the recipes in my Greek and Turkish cookbooks at home but only ever tried them once or twice in people’s homes, never on my own.   These days … Read more

Mushroom Risotto

If you’ve never had risotto, now’s the time to try it. Yes, it’s most popular as an Italian style rice, but anyone can make it. Actually, I think it’s even easier to make than some of the other types of rice, the only difference being that you should spend a lot of time stirring it while it … Read more

Creamy Potato Soup

Ever since Ramadan, I’ve been in the habit of making soups with whatever is growing and seasonal. Last year I grew potatoes in pots and it was going great until the potatoes really began to grow underneath (the greens had already come out beautifully on top) and the squirrels realized there was something to be … Read more

Tandoori Spiced Chicken Pizza

Two of my favorite things and my favorite flavors combined to make this recipe we’ve been enjoying a lot this Ramadan– pizza and Tandoori Chicken. To make it super quick and serve as an appetizer at Iftar, I cut the finished pizza into squares. We love to have it just after breaking our fast with … Read more

Easy Bulgur and Vegetable Salad

This Ramadan, I’m all about quick and easy. With such a long fast and so much to do, I just don’t want to fuss with food- do you? This salad has been a mainstay- it’s got the bulgur wheat, which gives it some substance, but the veggies add flavor, crunch, texture and lots of good nutrition.  … Read more

Fresh & Fruity Coconut Water

There’s no doubt that one of the hardest part of the fasting day might not even be going without food, but going without water. That’s why it’s super important to hydrate during the non-fasting hours, all throughout those hours. It’s easy to remember to do if you make a huge jar of a natural, hydrating … Read more
