Are you a crockpot/slow cooker user? Whether you are or not, you probably will want to be by the end of this post! Grab a drink or snack and settle in because this post is a long one and you do not want to miss out!
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
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 want to start off telling you about one of my favorite new cookbooks by saying that this book is not just for sandwich-lovers!

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
By now I’m sure most of you have heard of banana soft serve. (If not, you will absolutely die when you try it.) Also called “yonanas”, banana soft serve is frozen banana blended with whatever flavorings (like vanilla extract, cocoa powder, espresso powder, etc.) or add-ins (like toasted almonds, coconut, chocolate chips, etc.) you like.
There are so many things that I make for myself on a near-daily basis that I just don’t think about sharing the recipe for. Silly things. Like this caramelized onion + goat cheese omelet, this cabbage hash + fried eggs, or this pretty little breakfast number. Or an almost-instant, healthy treat (that I promise tastes
