Avocado Love & YBR

Avocado Love & YBR

I think I’ve made myself quite clear that my family and I love and adore avocados. We even have our own precious avocado tree. This is my husband’s mistress, as I like to joke. Alongside with our lime and lemon trees. My boys don’t care for avocados, yea – more for me, but then my […]

What Do You Do When A Foodie Can’t Eat?

What Do You Do When A Foodie Can’t Eat?

It’s funny, but this subject came up during Camp Blogaway. Greg from Sippity Sup talked about when his mouth was wired shut and he couldn’t eat, what would he blog about?

Hummus Love: Artichoke, Balsamic, Garlic, Pumpkin & Sun-Dried Tomato

I suppose I should be flattered. My husband likes to spring dinner guests on me last minute. If I’m lucky, I get 36 hours notice. I suppose he has seen me pull it off before effortlessly.

Persian Celery Stew (Khoreshteh Karafs)

It’s funny to observe your kids. They keep you on your toes and you never know what they say next. And considering all three have the same biological parents, it’s mind-boggling how different each individual really is. My oldest just turned 10. He’s the Professor. He’s loved dinosaurs since he was 4 and he wants […]

Cooking with Beer

Cooking with Beer

I can tell that summer is fast approaching because we have grilled this week at least three times. My husband is usually in charge of this, so after the third night of grilling he seemed annoyed. “Again?” he asked. I didn’t remind him that I have dinner duty 7 times a week. I deliberately take […]

My Camp Blogaway Wrap Up

My Camp Blogaway Wrap Up

In my house, I have a magical kitchen sink. Everyone in my family places their dirty dishes, cups and utensils in this magic sink. And, without them ever lifting a finger, the dishes get washed. Of course, we can guess who makes the magic happen. Of course, it’s me. The same seems to go with […]
