Cous Cous with Kale and Preserved Lemon

Thursday, March 28, 2013

When I had extra Meyer lemons to use up, I decided to preserve them. My intention was to try that famous Moroccan chicken dish with olives and preserved lemon. Well, life got in the way, and that has not happened yet. It will.
Something even better happened though! The Moroccan inspiration was definitely in mind one […]

Bacon Wrapped Dates

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

What do nearly all tapas restaurants have in common? Bacon Wrapped Dates! Usually stuffed with almonds, they are the perfect nuggets of salty wrapped around sweet. Each bite is intensely flavored, exuding a smokey aroma.  These morsels are worthy of that cliche label, “match made in heaven.”
Every time I go out for tapas with the […]

Octopus with Paprika and The Book of Tapas Give-Away

Monday, May 24, 2010

Finally! We moved, but it’s not all smooth sailing yet. We’re living out of boxes and we don’t have a kitchen yet. While our perfect kitchen is being built (which we will be talking about soon), I’m going to have to get crafty. I do have many plug-in appliances (rice cooker, toaster oven, panini press, […]

Zucchini Cous Cous

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

I wonder if anyone else hates winter as much as I do? I don’t mean to be all negative but winter just kills it for me. Since this is a food blog, I won’t go into details about my skin drying and cracking, the headaches from wind blowing at my head (this is NOT psychological), […]

Street Food at Home: Lamb Gyro

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

We’re still touring through California, but for those of you hungry for a recipe, here’s a treat we did just before leaving…
One of my favorite lunch foods (when I’m not strictly following lunch.foodmayhem.com) is street meat.  I’m talking about lamb shawarma from a cart.  One of my favorites in Manhattan is the guy in front […]

Santorini Lobster – Attempt 1

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Our first year anniversary is coming up (June 1st!), so perhaps that is conjuring themes of romance and memories of our honeymoon.

One of the best moments of our honeymoon had to be sitting at Sunset Taverna, dining by the bay (three feet from it) in Santorini, Greece, and enjoying the best lobster pasta dish […]

Spinach Pie Rolls

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

When we were in Corfu, Greece we had fabulous Spinach Pie Rolls. I found something similar with a cheese filling in NY, but it wasn’t as good without the spinach. I do love cheese so combining the two, I now have my own version of the Spinach Pie Roll.

Tzatziki

Saturday, June 28, 2008

I love Tzatziki and make it pretty often in the summer. It’s so refreshing, a perfect way to balance spicy dishes or meats coming off a barbecue grill. After making it in many different ways, I’ve decided on a recipe: I chose to use kirby cucumbers because the regular or garden cucumbers can be watery […]

Roasted Eggplant and Red Pepper Salad

Wednesday, April 9, 2008

I’m trying really hard to eat lighter and this very low fat salad was great. It doesn’t taste like it’s missing the fat at all. Enjoy!
