Sesame-Soy Arrowroot Noodles with Stir-Fried Vegetables 1

We all know that being active is part of a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes, however, it feels like a catch-22 when you and your family are so active that you’re always on-the-go and there isn’t even time to cook a healthy meal. Which is, of course, why so many people resort to the drive thru.

I have a different take on fast food.

Foul Mudammas (Egyptian Mashed Fava Beans with Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, and Garlic)

Foul Mudammas 1

Each year, Ramadan comes about 11 days earlier than it did the previous year because it’s based on the lunar calendar. The good news is, this rotation around the calendar year makes it more fair (so to speak) in terms of the length of day because that’s what determines how long is spent fasting (Muslims fast from dawn to sunset during Ramadan). Meaning, if Ramadan were on a set date, for example, on June 21, people fasting in the Northern Hemisphere would always have to fast a much longer day than those fasting in the Southern Hemisphere (or vice versa if Ramadan were on December […]...

Caramelized Pineapple Grilled Cheese with Honeyed Walnuts

Caramelized Pineapple Grilled Cheese with Honeyed Walnuts

What’s up with the pineapples on houses everywhere?, either Mike asked me or I asked him when we first moved to Virginia. Because they literally are everywhere…we noticed them carved or engraved on mailboxes, porches, doorways, doorknobs, door knockers, and welcome mats, and that’s before you even get inside. Once inside a traditional Southern house, you may notice a pineapple design integrated right into the house (for example, carved into fireplace mantels), as well as throughout the décor (like in paintings and carpets)....

Red Lentil Bolognese

Lentil Bolognese

This dish is a little nostalgic for me, but not in the way you’d expect. Other than being a darn tasty meal, it has no personal significance aside from the fact that it’s the last recipe I have that hasn’t been shared on my blog yet that I made and photographed while Mike and I were still living in Kuwait. (We left there last summer, so that shows you how long I’ve had this recipe in my queue!)...

Jicama, Apple, and Pomegranate Salad with Raspberry-Dijon Vinaigrette

The other day we ordered sandwiches from a cute little local café. It bears mentioning that they served my turkey wrap with extra onion without me even having to ask…and it’s not like they knew me (as the onion-loving weirdo I am) because it was my first time there! I felt like I won the onion lotto or something. (It’s the little things, lol.)...
