Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Vinaigrette {Let Them Eat Kale Cookbook Giveaway}

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Dressing

From first bite, I’ve always been a kale-lover, but that might be because the first time I had it I was an adult. (My mom has a serious dislike of all leafy greens so she literally never made them – not once! – for my sister and I growing up. But don’t worry, we weren’t veggie-deprived! She was still of the strict belief that every meal should include a vegetable.) (more…)

Tri-Color Quinoa, White Bean, and Bell Pepper Salad {And a $50 Bob’s Red Mill Gift Card Giveaway}

Tri-Color Quinoa, White Bean, and Bell Pepper Salad

When I don’t feel like cooking and I ask Mike to cook for us, we inevitably end up with one of two things for dinner: eggs or foul m’demmas (an Egyptian dish of mashed fava beans with garlic, tomato, parsley, cumin, lemon, and olive oil).

Now, I love eggs in all their incarnations, and Egyptian food is always a favorite. But sometimes I wish the hubby would whip up something different, like, oh I don’t know, say a roast chicken with gravy or beef bourguignon. (Wishful thinking, right?) (more…)

The Perfect Gift Set for the Middle Eastern Food Lover on Your Gift List

Today’s giveaway is close to my heart. As many of you probably know, I’ve had the opportunity to immerse myself in Middle Eastern culture for most of my adult life (thanks to my Middle Eastern hubby), and I’ve come to fall completely in love with both Middle Eastern culture and cuisine.

I’m really excited to be giving away a few of my favorite Middle Eastern goodies today, and I hope that they’ll soon become your favorites as well.

One lucky winner will get everything you see in this post, so let’s get right to the good stuff… (more…)

The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook {Review and Giveaway}

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook

I want to start off telling you about one of my favorite new cookbooks by saying that this book is not just for sandwich-lovers! Of course sandwich aficionados will be sated beyond words with the huge variety of paninis, but Kathy Strahs, author of the Panini Happy blog and The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook, creatively shows just how much a panini press can do beyond making sandwiches.

You can make things like Grilled Smashed Potatoes, Spinach-Feta Quinoa Cakes, Grilled Brie with Honey and Toasted Pecans, Grilled Apple Turnovers, and get ready for it – Homemade Ice Cream Cones! I can’t even tell you how excited I was to discover all these other uses for the panini press…uses that had never even entered my wildest imagination.

The recipes are fantastic, so let’s dive right in… (more…)

Fashion Meets Comfort in Albion’s High-Performance Fitness Wear {$150 Gift Card Giveaway}

$150 Albion Gift Card Giveaway on An Edible Mosaic

I have a confession. In my world, comfort trumps fashion at least 85% of the time and if left to my own devices, I would live in my comfy workout clothes 24/7. Phew. So glad to get that off my chest. :)

That’s why I was tickled pink when I recently found out about Albion Fit’s line of beautiful and comfortable high-performance fitness wear. I’d call that the best of both worlds.

I was thrilled at the opportunity to try a few of their beautiful pieces for myself, and to host a giveaway for a $150 Albion Fit Gift Card! With Christmas right around the corner, this would make the perfect gift…or gift-to-self if you’re all done shopping for everyone on your list. (more…)

Shells Bolognaise – the whole family loved this dish!

We all know cooking with your kids is important for so many reasons…but how many of us actually take the time to really get our kids involved in cooking as often as we’d like to?

There are a million reasons not to: soccer practice, a scouts meeting, the baby is sick, you’d have to run to the grocery store first, or even just the fact that it’s nearing the end of a busy day and you’re beat and take-out is sounding pretty darn good. Even so, despite every reason not to cook with your child there is an even more important reason to do so: it’s one of the most important skills you’ll ever teach them and one of the deepest passions you’ll instill in them. Marilyn Cappellino, author of the children’s book series Mangia! makes it easy. (more…)

Roasted Vegetable Crustless Quiche with Basil & Pine Nuts {Cuisine Nicoise Cookbook Giveaway}

Friday, August 9th, 2013

DSC_2277(small)

There are certain recipes you see that you expect to have certain ingredients just from reading the title.

Like macaroni and cheese. I always expect macaroni, and I always expect cheese…but that’s not necessarily true. Take cauliflower “macaroni” and vegan “cheese”; true it doesn’t taste exactly like the original, but still, it’s macaroni and cheese-ish and delicious anyway.

Or fudge. I hear the word fudge and my mind goes to chocolate. But flavors like cappuccino, cinnamon bun, and peanut butter show that isn’t the case. Chocolate obviously doesn’t have to be included in a fudge-like confection for it to be tasty.

And then there’s quiche. When I think of quiche, I inevitably think of buttery pastry and loads of cheese…a rich dish, made even richer by a splash or two of cream. This quiche took away my preconceived ideas about what quiche is. (more…)

Pina Colada Smoothie {Frozen Treat Week}

Friday, July 26th, 2013

Pina Colada Smoothie1

The final treat I’m sharing in honor of Frozen Treat Week is a real doozy.

In keeping with the other two healthy treats I’ve shared for this event (3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet and Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve), today’s treat is equally healthy. And every bit as delicious.

I’m not even kidding when I say that last summer I don’t think I touched a carton of ice cream once because of this smoothie. And that’s not to say that I didn’t crave ice cream. (more…)
