Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

I remember the first time I bit into fresh falafel.

Mike and I were in Amman, Jordan on our honeymoon, out and about just strolling along arm-in-arm, the way you’d expect people on their honeymoon to do. We passed a guy frying up falafel on a street corner; simultaneously, Mike’s stomach growled and I inhaled deeply, asking what that amazing smell was.

You know we had to stop and get some. (more…)

Deluxe Cake Batter Fudge

I don’t know about you, but I’m a little hard-pressed to find a dessert that’s suitable for Easter outside of carrot cake, lemon bars, or orange chiffon cake. And of course all the cutesy little bunny and egg-topped cupcakes and cookies.

There’s nothing wrong with any of those things (in fact, I die over a good slice of carrot cake!), but I don’t know…I like to mix things up a little.

If you’re the same way, this fudge will definitely keep things interesting. (more…)

Cinnamon Bun Bread Pudding

Cinnamon Bun Bread PuddingCinnamon buns are right up there with bagels for me as far as favorite special occasion breakfasts go.

Bagels are a rare treat (made even rarer by the fact that in Kuwait it isn’t nearly as easy to find a decent quality bagel as it is in New York). But ironically (because there’s a Cinnabon that’s just a two-minute walk from where we live), cinnamon buns are an even more rare treat. (more…)

Dragon Fruit Shrub and a Game of Thrones Tribute

Dragon Fruit Shrub with Pomegranate Arils

I’m so excited, it’s a little scary.

And if you’re a Game of Thrones fan, I’m sure you’re just as through-the-roof thrilled as I am for Sunday night.

(If you’re not a fan, you might not find this post all that interesting, so I won’t take it personally if you just want to scroll down to the bottom and check out the fabulously delicious recipe that you definitely don’t have to be a Game of Thrones fan to enjoy. Or stay a while and read a little bit about the story; but I warn you, you will be intrigued if you do!) (more…)

Lentil Soup with Spinach and Mini Chicken Meatballs {Gluten-Free}

Lentil Soup with Spinach and Mini Chicken Meatballs

Sometimes spring is obvious (like when temps go from 35 degrees to 55 degrees overnight and melt three feet of snow), and sometimes it isn’t quite so obvious (like when temps raise just a degree or two over the span of an entire month).

And then there are times when spring needs a little coaxing…like when it snows two feet in the span of two days at the end of March/beginning of April.

Garlicky Red Quinoa Patties with Mango Black Bean Salsa

One of the perks of living in Florida is that when fruit trees bear fruit, people suddenly have more than they know what do with, and the wealth inevitably gets shared. I remember waking up to a huge box of mangos on my front porch one morning when I lived there during law school…

One of my friend’s parents’ had a mango tree in their backyard (along with a grapefruit tree, those lucky ducks) and I was absolutely certain the fruit was from her family (who also frequently dropped off oranges and avocados that they got from a friend who also had fruit trees). (more…)

Butternut Butterscotch Pudding

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Thank you to General Mills for sponsoring this post. I like to make sure that my family gets as many veggies in as possible, even in unexpected places; along those lines, we enjoyed this Butternut Butterscotch Pudding and I hope your family does too.

Butternut Butterscotch Pudding

There is no food that reminds me of school lunches as a kid more than pudding does.

(Except maybe tunafish sandwiches, which were ubiquitous in my lunchbox, despite my pleading with my mom for something else. It was a rare happy occasion when a fluffernutter found its way in there, but when it did, what a bartering tool it was! It was the gold of the lunch table, and anyone was willing to give up anything to get it. But back to pudding.)

I think my mom thought chocolate was my favorite flavor (which would make sense…me and chocolate go way back) because it’s what she used to pack most frequently. But butterscotch was what I was really after, at least when it came to pudding. Heck, to me it was even worth trading a fluffernutter for. (more…)
