Love, Memories and Sour Cherry Jam (Moraba Albaloo)

My husband loves all sour things while I tend to lean toward the sweet side. Something as simple as noon-o panir (bread and feta cheese) is eaten differently by us, too. He prefers to eat noon-o panir with sabzeh (fresh herbs). I prefer it with a dollop of  jam. In fact, I will take a jar of […]

Eating Fresh: Blueberry Feta Quinoa Salad

Words and I do not get along. Which is odd, as I enjoyed creative writing when I was in school. I always wrote in an informal, conversational tone –  a natural fit with my blogging today. But, honestly, I struggle with words. One of the biggest obstacles I have with my blog is with the […]

While the internet and foodie magazines are filled with pumpkin recipes, there’s another fall favorite that is just starting to make it’s appearance. Yes, it’s the pomegranate. YAY! Our small pomegranate tree has about a dozen fruits on it. That’s barely a week supply for my family. Although the pomegranates we purchased last week weren’t […]

Summer Harvest: Kale and Heirloom Tomato Crustless Quiche

Some say tomato, others say frittata. Huh? Or is this a crustless quiche? In farsi, we call these egg dishes, kookoo. I tend to over think things when I’m naming a new recipe. Remember my not-too-long-away slushy-icee-cooler dilemma? Although I do have Italian flavors in this egg dish, including parmesan cheese, I decided  to name […]

Baked French Toast with a Whole Lotta Blueberries

Pomegranate Yogurt Parfait with Blueberries

I’m currently organizing and filing everything in my house, from bills to kids’ artwork to my digital pictures. And with 90,000 photos collected over the years, between family and food, it’s taking me awhile. The Professor loves looking at pictures of himself as a baby, which reminds me of an annoying amusing conversation we had […]
