You know you are a foodie when you have 30 minutes to get the kids to school and you forget that you never photographed your son’s favorite Lemony Chicken Noodle Soup for the Daring Cook’s challenge and you want to pack it in his thermos to take to lunch that day, but you need to […]

The Daring Cooks: Roasted Fingerling Potato Salad with Lemon & Thyme

The Daring Cooks: Roasted Fingerling Potato Salad with Lemon & Thyme

Growing up, my brother and I drove my mom crazy at the dinner table. We were opposites, you see. For the holidays, I liked turkey, my brother liked ham. I hated ham, still do today. Too salty. But, my mom thought we did this on purpose. She still (to this day) makes both ham and […]

The Daring Cooks: Stuffed Grape Leaves

The Daring Cooks: Stuffed Grape Leaves

The Greeks call this dish “dolmata.” The Persians call this dish “dolmeh.” I just call these little bundles of joy, INCREDIBLE! We, Persians, like to stuff everything: red peppers, onions, potatoes, tomatoes and every guest’s bellies until they burst! I was so excited to see that The Daring Cook’s October challenge was the dolmeh. It […]

The Daring Cooks & Yummy Peach Jam

The Daring Cooks & Yummy Peach Jam

I love jams. Ever since I was a kid, my breakfast would consist of bread (of any form), cheese (feta or cream cheese) and jam. This is my total-comfort food. I did go through the cereal milk days, especially when I was single and eating standing up in the kitchen… hey, I still do that! […]

Cucumber-Feta Toasts and The Daring Kitchen

Cucumber-Feta Toasts and The Daring Kitchen

Need a quick appetizer that requires no cooking and tastes great? Well I found this recipe for Cucumber-Feta Toasts in my little Martha Stewart Everyday Food magazine. I had to laugh when I saw it because it’s basically a twist on a Persian classic, Noon-o Panir-o Khiar (lavash with feta and cucumbers). This version uses […]

And usually, it’s a complicated recipe, that requires skill and a lot of attention. Luckily, this month was easy, delicious and it didn’t hurt the wallet. The […]

Daring Cooks: Lemon Risotto

Daring Cooks: Lemon Risotto

My family and I love all types of foods. I’ve always enjoyed cooking, and my husband and kids are used to seeing new things on the dinner table. Of course, they don’t always eat what I serve them, even if they are delicious. Despite these setbacks and disappointments, I keep moving forward (Remember, “Meet the […]
