I’m giving away one week’s worth of Saffron Road coupons so that you can try something new every day of the week– they have so many cool, convenient halal, gluten-free and Non-GMO products like frozen entrees, lentil crackers, lamb broth (trying finding another brand that makes that), and even desserts!

Creamy Herb Dip with Crudités

I love a good party dip- and a good party! No matter where you are in the world, it seems, you need a good snack/appetizer/pre-meal munchie to go with the food and warm up the guests as they arrive. During Ramadan, however, the schedule is a little bit different. Do you really think about party foods, dips … Read more

Spicy Alaskan Cod with Thai Red Curry Sauce

Lately I’ve been watching a lot of travel shows that involve copious amounts of eating along the way- think anything and everything Anthony Bourdain is in only because of all the interesting places he visits–but, definitely not what he eats or drinks. Some of the dishes that he tries are, in my opinion, a lesson in what not … Read more

Smoked Salmon Dip

I don’t know what it is about winter and salmon but it seems like every cold season I start to crave that flavor of fresh Alaskan Sockeye in parchment with dill and butter or those great smoked Norwegian salmon pieces on toast, with dill, of course. But this winter, I decided to try testing a dip … 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

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

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
