With chilly air and crisp, frost-bitten mornings, ‘tis the season for a hot, comforting start to your day. Porridge is perfect and sometimes it’s fun to think beyond your traditional oatmeal. I’ve experimented with different things like millet, bulgur, and quinoa, and now I can add couscous to the list. This warming dish is the perfect fix for a cold morning. For the full recipe, check out my post on Peanut Butter & Co.’s All-Star Recipe Blog.  (There’s also the chance to win a jar of The Bee’s Knees, the peanut butter used in this recipe!)

The Salad I’ve Been Enjoying All Summer

I know this might look like a real recipe, but it really isn’t. Yes, it’s food, and yes, it’s satisfying and delicious. But you can swap out any of the ingredients for a customized version, no recipe required. Take a closer peek into this bowl of goodness…...

A Lamb Feast

DSC_0286(small)

In many cultures, meat in general and lamb in particular is what you serve to guests…especially guests you really like!  (Since it’s usually the most expensive part of the meal, serving meat demonstrates your hospitality.)  I ate more lamb in the Middle East in just a couple months than I ate in the rest of my life combined.  (Middle Easterners are a generous, hospitable group of people…lamb was on the menu often!  Plus my hubby has a lot of family members, and each one wanted the chance to host us.) Stateside Mike and I generally don’t eat as much lamb, except during the Eid right […]...

Moroccan-Inspired Beef Short Ribs with Jeweled Couscous

Because all of my time lately (spare or otherwise) has been devoted to my book, I feel like all the main dishes I’ve been making are Middle Eastern.  And since all of these main dishes that I’ve been enjoying have been for my book, this also means that it’s been forever (or at least what feels like forever) since I shared a hearty main dish on my blog.  Ironically, the dish I’m sharing now isn’t for my book but it still is Middle East-inspired (Morocco, to be exact) and it’s the last thing I made for dinner recently that wasn’t for the book....

Fish with Sautéed Spinach & Tomatoes

During law school this was my go-to meal…I ate it once or twice a week for three years, which is probably why I rarely make it anymore, and why my husband tells me all the time that we should eat fish more often.  This meal is quick (about 15 minutes from start to finish), healthy, delicious, and so pretty to look at (which is of course important, since we eat with our eyes before we eat with our palates or our stomachs).   Scroll down the ingredient list and you’ll find an unusual pairing…fish and cheese.  (I know, usually this is a horrifying combination!)  This […]...
