Savory Oatmeal Breakfast Bowls with Smoky Garlic Greens and Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette 1

I’m really not fussy about my oats. I’ll take them just about any way I can get them: savory or sweet, whipped, steel-cut, made into granola, baked into muffins, and of course in cookie form. But one day I stumbled on a way of making oats that was a bit of a revelation for me.

Maple Pecan Potato Chip Shortbread Cookies

Maple Pecan Potato Chip Shortbread Cookies 1

These Maple Pecan Potato Chip Shortbread Cookies feature a deliciously balanced salty/sweet flavor profile and are easy to make! They’re a fun addition to a festive holiday cookie tray. I think food-related gifts are the best gifts, whether it’s a celebratory meal you’re sharing or a plate of homemade treats. Or better yet, a tried and true family recipe. One of the biggest perks of being a food blogger is that when people hear what I do for a living, their eyes  light up and their ears perk up, and they immediately ask me if I have a great recipe for such-and-such, or if I’ve ever tried […]...

Creamy Almond Brown Rice Pudding

Creamy Almond Brown Rice Pudding

It’s been a while since I talked about our pudding obsession. Our obsession hasn’t gone anywhere, but I don’t want to bombard and overwhelm you with pudding, of all things. That would just be weird....

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?)...

Garlicky Red Quinoa Patties with Mango Black Bean Salsa

Garlicky Red Quinoa Patties with Mango Black Bean Salsa Recipe 1

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)....

5-Minute Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake {Paleo}

5-Minute Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake {Paleo}

Like I mentioned here, I’m kind-of particular about my cake. (As Mike likes to tell me, I’m kind-of particular about a lot of food-related stuff, but that remains to be proven and is an entirely different discussion for another day.) Anyway. I don’t think there is anything more disappointing than seeing an absolutely stunning cake and then sinking your teeth into what you think will be pure bliss, and realizing that it tastes like rubbery-textured cardboard. Such a bummer....

Mujaddara Burghul (And a HUGE Giveaway of My Cookbook + Prize Packs From Bob’s Red Mill!)

DSC_9828(small)

Photo (taken by yours truly) of Mujaddara Burghul from my cookbook, An Edible Mosaic: Middle Eastern Fare with Extraordinary Flair. If you’re curious about Middle Eastern food and looking for a good recipe to start with, Mujaddara Burghul, otherwise known as Lentil & Bulgur Wheat Pilaf with Caramelized Onion, is the perfect dish. It’s very healthy with lentils and whole-grain bulgur wheat as its main ingredients. (Since it’s a vegetarian meal, it’s easy on the wallet too!) It couldn’t be simpler to make…if making rice intimidates you, know that bulgur is much more forgiving than rice. And with caramelized onion and the perfect blend of spices, it’s […]...

Homemade Hearty Almond-Vanilla Cereal {And a Big Bob’s Red Mill & Attune Foods Giveaway!}

DSC_3179(small)

I make granola frequently and I’ve shared a couple recipes for it (this Pumpkin Spice version is one of my favs when autumn is in the air and even when it’s not), but I’ve never tried my hand at homemade cereal before.  (You know, the flake kind.)  Until now. I found a recipe on Mr Breakfast for Nutty Bran Flakes and I was immediately inspired.  (Obsessed is probably a better word, lol.)  I knew I had to make my own version....
