Tomato-Simmered Lemon and Oregano-Scented Bison Meatballs

On our dinner table growing up, the most unusual meat to be found was venison. (Which my sister and I never liked, not only because of its gamey flavor, but also because the thought of eating Bambi didn’t sit well with us.)

I know that’s probably crazy to some of you who eat a whole gamut of meat. (more…)

Sweet Pea Salad with Scallion, Bacon, and Lemon Cream Dressing

When I think of spring – as far as food goes – green peas immediately come to mind.

I think it’s because green peas are not only one of my favorite springtime foods, but also because they remind me of the green buds on trees. And if you live in a place where it snows, you will know exactly what I mean when I say that buds on the trees in spring are a most welcome sight. (more…)

Lemon-Vanilla Almond Cake {Paleo}

Lemon-Vanilla Almond Cake {Paleo}

When I was younger, I hated any and all lemon-flavored desserts with a passion. Lemon bars, lemon meltaway cookies, and even lemon meringue pie were all on my list.

(But oddly enough, I was a big fan of super sour lemon-flavored WarHeads candy – does anyone else remember those? Incidentally, I consider this proof positive that there is no rhyme or reason to kids’ tastes.) (more…)

Limonana (Middle Eastern Frozen Mint Lemonade)

It’s October. It may or may not be snowing profusely where you are. (Although I’m not there now, where I come from, it more than likely is snowing profusely!)

I realize that.

So what am I doing posting a frozen beverage? (more…)

Gluten-Free Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013


There was this cute little café that I used to frequent with a friend for lunch. It was just this hole-in-the-wall from the outside, but it was decorated in a charming, eclectic way inside. The food was quirky and full of charm too. (more…)

Fiori di Sicilia-Inspired Syrup

Friday, February 8th, 2013


Last weekend I had big plans for the gigantic bag of organic lemons that had taken up residence on the bottom shelf of my fridge. Pushing thoughts of lemon bars, lemon curd, candied lemon peel, lemon sorbet, and lemon pie out of my head, I decided on lemon marmalade.

Since the title of this post wasn’t “Lemon Marmalade” you can probably guess that something went wrong along the way. (more…)

Lemony Pasta

A while ago I was incredibly lucky to win a giveaway that was hosted by my friend Katerina of the lovely blog, Culinary Flavors (thank you so much, Katerina!).  The prize was a beautiful assortment of Greek specialty foods, including the delicious Greek pasta Hilopites, which are small, square noodles made with milk and eggs.

Simply Prepared Beets

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Growing up I had weird tastes for a kid.  Of course there were a few normal kid-repellers that I didn’t like (such as Brussels sprouts and sauerkraut), but there were also a few that I did enjoy, namely, beets.  (Beets are a funny thing…I’ve found that most babies love them, most kids hate them, and most adults will eat them.  What a vicious cycle!)
