Crispy Baked Kale Phyllo Triangles with 3-Ingredient Feta Yogurt Dip

The holidays are over, but that doesn’t mean we’re done entertaining.

There’s always something to celebrate and if there’s one thing I think we can all agree on about a party, it’s that there should be food. But yeah, maybe food that’s a little lighter because the holidays did just end and let’s face it, many of us probably need to cut back just a bit on indulgence right now.

We don’t have to sacrifice flavor though!

Green Pea, Baby Potato, and Cauliflower Curry

Green Pea, Baby Potato, and Cauliflower Curry

When it comes to Indian spice mixes, I have to admit that curry powder typically isn’t on my list of favorites; instead, garam masala spice mix is my much-preferred go-to. (Garam masala makes a perfect dish of Lamb Tikka Masala or Dal Makhani/Butter Lentils!)...

An Old Palestinian Potato Home Remedy for Tummy Troubles

An Old Palestinian Potato Home Remedy for Tummy Troubles

The last time Mike and I were in the Middle East I came down with stomach bugs three different times in 40 days. That’s more times than I’ve been sick with tummy troubles during the rest of my adult life combined (other than that trip, I only remember having stomach flus twice since being a kid!). Lucky for me, my mother-in-law is well-versed not only in cooking, but also in home remedies, many of which very effectively use food as medicine. As Hippocrates said, Let thy food by thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food....

Yogurt Mousse with Honey and Fresh Figs

DSC_8865(small)

A while ago a friend of mine was sweet enough to send me a copy of a book he thought I’d enjoy, called Mourad: New Morocan by Mourad Lahlou. My friend knows me well because I swooned over this book the instant I opened it....

Strawberry-Vanilla Smoothie

DSC_5687(small)

What is one thing you eat every single day?  For me it’s cottage cheese and for Mike it’s yogurt (ironically, I’m also a big yogurt eater but he won’t touch cottage cheese with a 10 foot pole).  That’s ok, I use the fact that he likes yogurt to my advantage.  Namely, to get more fruits and veggies into him whenever I can....

White Cow Dairy’s Gingerberry Yogurt

IMG_1041 (Small)

The last time I went grocery shopping fortune smiled upon me.  Not just for finding this yogurt, (I’ll get to that in a minute) but also because Mike went shopping with me, which he does only once in a blue moon.  We were in the organic dairy area and Mike was ever-so-patiently checking the time on his phone and asking me (for the fifth time in two minutes…after we had been in the store a mere five minutes) how many items I had left on my grocery list, when I spotted the cutest little jar of yogurt.  Ever.  (If you remember my Sausages & Sauerkraut with German mustard, I guess […]...

Roasted Corn with Indian-Spiced Yogurt Sauce

IMG_5033 (Small)

At the peak of corn season when fresh, local corn is at its finest, my favorite way to eat it is steamed on the cob.  I may add a touch of salt or butter, but other than that it needs nothing else.  After I’ve had my fill of eating corn on the cob this way for countless meals, I like to switch it up a little and look for different ways to make it.  This dish was inspired by a recipe I came across last winter in an Indian cookbook that I had bookmarked to make during corn season.  The sauce has deep flavor from the onions and complexity from the spices.  It’s creamy and looks absolutely indulgent, […]...

Shakriya (Arabic Meat in Yogurt Sauce)

IMG_4679 (Small)

I’m going to be honest right from the start. This soup really is an acquired taste. The first time I had it, not only did I think the very idea of it was strange (it’s basically yogurt soup), but I didn’t like how it tasted either (it was tangy!). I was able to spend quite a bit of time in the Middle East when my hubby and I first married…and the longer I stayed the more my tastes changed. It was right around the time I started enjoying slimy green soup that I also started to like Shakriya. Even though Mike and I no longer live […]...

Pumpkin Yogurt Pound Cake 2 Ways

img_4465-small

The first holiday Brandy and I are celebrating for our All Through the Year Cheer Event is Halloween!  To Brandy and I, Halloween says apples and pumpkins, so this month we’ll feature several recipes with those ingredients.  (For some reason, Halloween always puts me in the mood to watch the first Harry Potter movie…I think because of the scene where they show the dining hall of Hogwarts all decked out with pumpkins!)  The first recipe I’m featuring is a Pumpkin Yogurt Pound Cake.  This recipe is actually a 2-for-1, since I used the same batter to make two completely different cakes.  The first cake is […]...
