Date Nut Squares (Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free)

Friday, July 12, 2013

Lon’s been going light on dairy for a long time and as his intolerance grew more severe, he had to get more strict. At this point, he’s 99% dairy-free. While battling his digestive issues, he spent 6 months being gluten-free to see if it would help. It didn’t seem to benefit him so he is […]

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.

Meals at our place are always feasts! With that we had Tzatziki (I’ve posted this recipe before), Hummus, Quinoa Tabbouleh, Eggplant Caperberry Salad, and […]

Spicy Baba Ganouj

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

I decided to make Baba Ganouj today and a light bulb went off – I should add harissa (that I bought at SOS Chefs) to it. It just made sense in my head so I was hoping the result would be as good. For me, the harissa was a hit! It brought out a […]
