Prosciutto Melon Skewers
This was another one of my contributions to the little impromptu picnic that we recently had at my mom’s place. Prosciutto Melon is a well-known appetizer and you probably don’t need me to tell you about it. But, did you ever think of turning this great classic into super elegant and easily ...
Quinoa Broccoli Salad with Tangy Goat Cheese
This past week-end, we celebrated summer (or what few days of it we’re getting this year anyway) by having a little impromptu family picnic at my mom’s place. We spent the entire day under the warm sun, right by the poolside, enjoying good food and good times in good company. This beautiful Quinoa
20 Good Reasons to Fire-Up That Grill
I was browsing Pinterest the other day, in search of a little inspiration to fire-up that grill of mine this week-end, and I found so many amazing recipes that I figured, hey, why not share some of them with you guys? I’m sure that, just like me, you think that you can never too much recipe ...
Morning Glory Bread – Naturally Sweetened
Ever since I gave My Evil Twin free reign of the kitchen once or twice a week, she’s pretty much been in charge of everything and anything baked around here. Cakes, cookies, breads and the likes are now quasi-officially her department… I myself focus on the real food, you know: the meat and the ...
Grilled Lamb Kabobs with Tahini Sauce
For many years now, I’ve tried to grow mint in my flower-beds-slash-garden, key word here being “tried”. For some odd reason, I was never successful. I know, I know: mint is supposed to be super easy to grow, too easy even. I’ve been warned so many times, you know: don’t grow mint, don’t grow mint,
Mediterranean Tortellini Salad
This Mediterranean Tortellini Salad is another recipe that, when I initially started envisioning it, I thought for sure would end up on My Evil Twin’s Kitchen. But then, the more I thought about it, the more my visions became fresh, healthy and nutritious, with my pasta being accompanied by ...
Spicy Peanut Chicken Teriyaki
I know I just I said in my previous post that I tried to avoid eating Asian food at restaurants and usually preferred making my own at home, but Japanese food may be a bit of an exception to that rule… Sushi, for instance, is something that I won’t do at home because I find it to be way too tedious
Sweet and Sour Chicken
It’s kinda weird how my body has had insatiable cravings for Asian and Lebanese foods these past few months… I feel they’re pretty much all I’ve been eating lately. When the craving for Shish Taouk or Shawarma strikes, I tend to simply hit my local Lebanese restaurant. The thing is, I do not yet ...
Greek Style Meatballs
Two days ago, it was crazy hot… so hot, I barely felt like lifting the finger and cooking was about the last thing that was on my mind… Today? It’s freezing cold and raining… I’m not sure I understand Mother Nature anymore. She sure has a twisted sense of humor, let me tell ya! When I initially […]
Avocado Egg Salad
I don’t know about your part of the world, but where I live, it’s been terribly HOT these past couple of days. Way too hot to cook, almost too hot to eat, and certainly too hot to be asking my brains to concentrate on aligning more than 3 words to form proper sentences. They are […] The post ...
