Lovely, simple cookies spiced with cardamom, vanilla, and lemon zest. posted for Zaar World Tour. Instead of the sanding sugar you can just add some food coloring to regular sugar and stir in in until well mixed.
Fijoles de Olla simply means pot beans.This recipe uses ingredients more commonly used in the south of Mexico. A delicious and comforting blend of old world and Mexican ingredients. The flavors seem to meld together in a very balanced and satisfying way. It goes great as a side or by itself or in tortillas. I used pinto beans but you can use any beans you like. You can cook it on the stove top or in the crock pot. I find it easier and less distracting to do it in the crock pot. As a final note the chorizo is optional and not a part of the original recipe.enjoy!
I just love this recipe, I have been putting it on everything! It is mild and fresh. Goes wonderfully on a fresh salad from the garden. It is delicious drizzled on pizza, bread, noodles etc. I found this in a cookbook by Nancy Harmon Jenkins.
How can you improve upon lemon and garlic?! I found this delicious sounding recipe from the book: http://www.amazon.com/Arabesque-Morocco-Turkey-Lebanon-ebook/dp/B001O1O7W6/ref=dp_kinw_strp_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2 (posted for North Africa and Middle East tag)
A delicious blend of sweet with aromatic spices, olives, lemon and parsley. this is a recipe from the book: http://www.amazon.com/Arabesque-Taste-Morocco-Turkey-Lebanon/dp/030726498X (Posted for North Africa Middle East Tag)
We made this last night and really enjoyed it,even had it again for lunch today. They are filled with re-fried beans, beef, Mexican spiced rice, jalapenos, cheese and all the other toppings/fillers that you want.
This recipe is also good since it serves 8-10 with only 1lb of meat! You can use either ground turkey as we do or ground beef, doesn't really matter.
Hope you like this as much as we do.
This is one of my most favorite recipes. It has very few ingredients but turns out very well. When you take it out of the oven you can hear the crust crackling-very nice! Hope you like it as much as we do.
(If you want to use whole wheat you can add only a half a cup to this recipe -more than that will make the bread dense) Also if you only have active dry yeast- double the yeast amount to 1/2 tsp.
Note* since it is a no-knead recipe it is a pretty flat loaf with a max. height of about 5-7 inches.
This recipe has pesto not only on top but in the crust too! We have for years had pesto pizza regularly for lunches since we often have huge basil plants to make pesto from, but recently I thought of adding even more pesto flavor by adding it to the crust.
I love this salad, the ingredients and the flavors are great. It is a fresh yet flavorful salad that can be used as a side dish or main dish lunch as I usually make it. I found this recipe in The Arab Table by: May Bsisu http://www.amazon.com/Arab-Table-Recipes-Culinary-Traditions/dp/0060586141 a few years back and have been making it ever since.
A tasty spiced cheese similar to cream cheese that can be used as a spread over pita, or with cucumber slices, crackers, chips or whatever you like. This is my own za'atar recipe but if you have your own you can use that instead if you like, since mine isn't all that authentic. ;) (The preparation time includes letting the yogurt drain.)
I found this recipe in my Betty Crocker's International cookbook and thought it sounded pretty good. It is a chicken dish with rice, filled with spices, stewed tomatoes, capers, olives, ham, garlic, peas and more. I can't wait to try it myself. It could be a one dish meal or you could serve it with a salad. Hope you enjoy!
