Must-Try Zucchini Bread

Share

This is the BEST zucchini bread I have EVER made, and during zucchini season, I make it often. It also happens to be the easiest. It takes no more than 15 minutes from the moment you take the mixing bowl out until it’s in the oven baking. It’s also a one-bowl recipe, and the best […]

Instant Pot Yogurt

Share

First things first – definitely start this in the morning because it can take up to twelve hours before it’s finished.I’ve read a lot of articles about making yogurt in an instant pot and since we are a big yogurt-eating family, I decided to try it. I found the process to be a little finicky […]

Cinnamon Sugar Scones

Share

This is a one-bowl scone recipe that my boys love. They’re not terribly sweet and your home will smell great as they cook. I find that cinnamon in the oven always does that.You don’t absolutely need parchment paper to make this recipe, but I find that it’s quite helpful. This recipe involves rolling out the […]

Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles

Share

One of my sons made these the other day. He’s a huge cookie dough fan. We actually went downtown a couple of weekends ago to a shop called DÕ. All they sell is cookie dough. It’s served like ice cream and it’s such a phenomenon in NYC that it’s almost impossible to get in. We […]

During the boys’ winter break, we went to Disney World with family and had a wonderful time. We were a group of 15 in total. We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and ate at their restaurant called Boma – Flavors of Africa twice during our stay. My favorite part of the meal at Boma […]

Before trying this recipe, I had only ever cooked this sweet corn polenta, made from fresh […]

Graham Cracker Bites

My boys LOVE this recipe. Well, three out of four do. The other one likes these, but doesn’t go crazy over them. One of my sons asks me to make these all the time. The boys can’t decide if they like them dipped in dark or white chocolate better. These are reminiscent of s’mores, with […]

Chickpea Vegetable Stew

Share

This isn’t the prettiest stew, but it’s an awfully delicious dinner.   It’s a nice vegetarian meal that’s loaded with seasonal vegetables.  The flavors all meld together really nicely.  I love the sweetness of the coconut milk mixed with the mild flavors of the vegetables.   The whole stew tends towards the sweet because of the coconut […]

Lemon Pepper Grilled Chicken

Share

This is one of the quick recipes that I made the other day when my parents dropped by. About a month ago, we went to a barbecue to celebrate my nephew’s graduation from 8th grade, and my sister grilled some yogurt-marinated chicken that I couldn’t get enough of. It was so moist and flavorful. I […]

Shrimp Stew with Coconut Milk, Tomatoes and Cilantro

Share

This is a perfect Thai-inspired weeknight meal. The preparation is quick and the result is delicious. I love almost anything with coconut milk and cilantro, such a great combination. I served this over brown rice which sopped up the sauce nicely. My husband loved this. Boys wouldn’t go near it.
