I’ve been in a post-Passover frenzy to use up leftover potatoes. And since my motto lately is “everything is better with cheese” I came up with this casserole meal. Broccoli added for a modicum of nutritional value. Put 1lb frozen broccoli florets in a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Boil peeled potatoes till soft. Cut the potatoes into large chunks and add to the dish. Pour 1 cup milk mixed …

Many of my friends serve carrot muffins as a side dish at meals. The kids like them, but they generally have so much sugar in them that they might as well be cake. After hunting around, I finally found this recipe. I’ve made it 3 times, and I’ve been pleased with the results. Some notes on the recipe: Sugar: It calls for dark brown sugar, but I’ve used light brown …

I was making cranberry chicken the other day, and had half a bag of cranberries left. I was debating what to do with them, when I noticed this recipe for cranberry nut bread on the back of the bag. I decided to give it a shot, and it was a hit! My changes to the recipe: I didn’t add nuts. I added ½ cup of chocolate chips to the batter …

If you are in the US of A and celebrating Labor Day today, chances are you are either hosting or heading out to a BBQ. In our house, no BBQ is complete without guacamole. Either we eat it with tortilla chips, slather it on our burgers, or use it to top a fajita taco. These are the three types of guacamole you are likely to see at my house: 1. …

I’m really fond of this tomato/onion/bell pepper Middle Eastern dip known as matbucha. It’s spicy, but not what American’s generally think of as a “dip”. This is a chunky mixture you can dip pita bread into, use to top fish, or add as a chunky sauce to spice up a variety of foods. Sautee thinly sliced bell pepper ( I use red ones when I can) and onion with some …

On days when I’m a good mommy and make a hot breakfast, one of the most popular options with the kids is pancakes. There are a lot of recipes out their for pancakes, but I pretty much stick with one of these two: Aunt Jemima – Yes, I use the whole wheat pancake box mix.

This middle eastern chickpea spread is a delicious source of protein. The store bought stuff is ok, but I really love the taste of hummus made from scratch. This is one of those foods that really is worth the time it takes to make it yourself. The first step is to cook the chickpeas. You can use canned chickpeas, but I have this really strong aversion to any …

This may not be the prettiest food picture I’ve posted, but it sure does taste good. Cut a bagel in half (these used sun dried tomato bagels) and scoop out some of the inside of the bread so you have a sort of bagel shell. Fill with hummus, sprouts, and matchstick carrots. You can also add avocado if you’d like. Since I was making these for a party, I cut …
