Introducing the Egg BLT

Alas, summer break has ended in our household. All three kiddos have returned to school this week. This year caught me of guard, as I got teary-eyed seeing Middle Child walk off with his big brother into middle school. He seemed so small compared to all of the giants in the school. He’s my baby […]

Norouz Twist on Kookoo Sabzi (Persian Herb Quiche with Chard and Kale)

In a blink of an eye, winter is almost over (well, for most of us) and Spring is around the corner. March 20th marks the first day spring and the first day of the Persian New Year (Norouz). I decided to grow my sabzeh this year for our haft sin, as my mother-in-law is still in […]

Get Educated and Eat Safe

September is National Food Safety Month! What? Doesn’t sound as glamorous as National Pie Day or International Stuff-Yourself-With-Pizza-Month, does it? But, considering that the salmonella bacteria is the number-one culprit in foodborne illness AND the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that Salmonella causes more deaths than any other foodborne bacteria, don’t you think you should pay […]

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

One of the first breakfast foods I perfected as a kid was making french toast. It was super easy. Scramble some eggs, dip the toast, cook it in a hot pan. BOOM! Breakfast is served. I was so proud of myself for making such a decadent meal. Between pancakes, waffles, crepes and french toast I […]

Tuna and Egg Salad

My Lunch Secret: Tuna and Egg Salad

I have been an avid tuna lover all of my life, which is funny because I can’t get any of my kids to eat the stuff! When I was single and had cats instead of kids, I’d crack open my can of tuna and my kitties would run from all parts of the apartment to […]

Daring Cooks: The Incredible, Edible Container

Daring Cooks: The Incredible, Edible Container

We had a great challenge this month, something I’ve been experimenting with a lot, myself. The edible container. Maybe it was in college when I encountered my first taco salad in a crunchy tortilla bowl. Heaven! The nutritious salad cancelled the negative effects of the fried tortilla shell. Come on, haven’t you ever eaten a […]

Another Sick Kid & March’s YBR

Another Sick Kid & March’s YBR

Middle-Child is sick again. This time it’s allergies. And I only have myself to blame, as I am the one with the seasonal allergy problem and he inherited it from his loving mom. My husband was kind enough to point this out this morning. He’s on a business trip all week and misses the kids […]
