Italian Wedding Soup

Italian Wedding Soup | My Halal Kitchen

While making this recipe and preparing to share it with you, I decided to do a little research to find out the history behind the origin of a soup I grew up eating all the time and that is quite popular in Italian restaurants: Italian Wedding Soup.

I’ve been cooking with Saffron Road products for a long time now and I really do enjoy them. They actually spoil me- made with high quality ingredients, part of the non-GMO project, many of which are gluten-free, and they’re really, really good.

I was wrong about the last part. I couldn’t ... Read More »

Halal Pepperoni Pizza with Recipe for Homemade Sauce and Dough

1

I grew up eating homemade pizza and pizza from very good local pizzerias. Both were excellent, though completely different from one another- one being the American version of pepperoni pizzas and the other being my grandmother’s version of the traditional Sicilian style pizza made from scratch and made like no other pizza in town. My grandmother made pizza on the ... Read More »

[Video] Yvonne Interviews Youssef Elayyadi of Minaret, Producers of Halal Hot Dogs

Yesterday I posted a video interview of Baba Pita Restaurant here in Chicago and I’m continuing on for the next few days with videos that we were able to capture of some of the vendors at the Halal Food Festival on Sept. 14, 2013 right here in Chicago. This next video is one of my favorites because I got to ... Read More »
