Shrimp Harissa Tagine

When I’m looking for a quick way to cook and eat healthy, I begin thinking about what I can make in a tagine. They’re easy to make one pot meals in and because they have a conical lid, you can steam the contents either while cooking or when it’s out of the oven and resting. My … 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

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

We work long hours, get hungry, don’t have a lot of time for complete meals, etc. etc. etc. The problem with snacking is that much of the pre-packaged options are filled with too much salt … Read more

My Favorite Yogurt Sauce Recipe

I have no idea why I’ve been craving yogurt sauces lately. It’s not even the yogurt I’ve been craving, it’s more so the fresh herbs I love to put in it- maybe it’s a lack of Vitamin C around here lately, I mean we. are. freezing.  This is a recipe I’ve made many times before but this time, … Read more

Insalata Caprese

Just because it’s not summer, it doesn’t mean you can’t still indulge in a craving for fresh produce and a taste of sunny Italy…at least I don’t deny myself that when I find great organic tomatoes, fresh basil and of course the best fresh mozzarella around. It’s such a treat and takes away some of … Read more
