It practically seems insulting to post this, since it is so ridiculous easy and has been around such a long, long time. There are a few different versions circulating though, and I am asked for this recipe from time to time, so I am going to go ahead and share it, in the hopes that some of you [...]
I developed this recipe a few years back and since then, this has been a favorite in our household and a regular part of our dinner rotation. I am constantly passing the recipe along to friends who dine at our house and the dish finds itself falling into their regular repetoire as well. Not only is this an [...]
My job has been a little too busy for my tastes lately. Since I work from home, I usually have a fair amount of free time on my hands for cooking, baking, scrapbooking and of course, blogging! Just think of all the free hours that add up since I save on a long commute to and from the [...]
Or Baba Ganoush’. Or Baba Ghannouj. Or Baba Ghannoug.
Anyway it’s spelled, this is my favorite amongst favorites of the Greek restaurant dishes. Sure, Hummous rocks my world. I’m very fond of Tabbouleh. And of course, I love me some Greek Salad.
But Baba Ghanoush holds a very special place in my heart. It’s creamy. It’s smokey. It’s so satisfying and nutritious.
No joke – this fresh and tasty salsa will have you slurping what’s left in the bowl after you’ve scooped up all the chunky stuff with your chips! I’ve made this over several summers now, and we never tire of it. In fact, it’s the first recipe I think of when my garden tomatoes start turning red! We can’t keep [...]

I thought I wouldn’t like it.
I had a somewhat vague recollection of trying Pesto years ago and from what I recalled, it was not a good experience. But since I absolutely love Basil and Garlic, I figured it must have been the Pine Nuts that were the problem.
As I’m sure you know, Pine Nuts are expensive! [...]
I like pickles.
But not the mushy kind that you find in the middle aisles in the grocery store.
I only like the crunchy refrigerated ones.
And the best pickles are the ones I make myself from my own garden’s pickling cukes.
Refrigerator Pickles are very easy to make.
You just need pickling cukes…
Kosher Salt, Peppercorns, Garlic, Vinegar and [...]
This recipe came from a good vegetarian and fellow-homeschooling friend of mine, when our families were doing an Indian Feast as part of our Unit Study on the country. I loved this dish immediately! I pretty much demanded the recipe and have made it nearly weekly since. It’s full of so many really good-for-you foods like Turmeric, [...]
